  1. Read question 8 and was like "I have no idea, but that sounds like Monotonix"
  2. Bjork. Once again, I'd like to thank past Rob for not embarrassing me

    Hot Chip

    Best Hot Chip cover was surly Other Stage 2008 when they brought Wiley out to do Wearing My Rolex (apologies if that has already been mentioned, I haven't been on here in about 8 years)
  4. Camera angles and light doing a lot of work there. The tent was deserted, it was heart breaking
  5. Modest Mouse with Jonny Marr on the Other stage 2007. Thank you past Rob for not embarrassing current Rob
  6. I haven't been since this thread was started, but will always vividly recall watching The National headline the JP tent in 2008 to absolute max 200 people. However, in good company as I stood next to and chatted with Guy Garvey for it
  7. Anna Meredith and Blanck Mass were exactly what I needed, so I'm all good for the line up now. Anything else a nice bonus
  8. Cackling at the idea of Swans at EOTR. I saw them at Primavera Porto a few years ago and they were so loud they made me feel physically ill and I had to go and sit in the furthest part of the site away from them in order to recover
  9. "vilified' it was some exceptionally mild ribbing alongside providing you with some tips and recommendations
  10. Really struggling at the idea that Angel Olson and Big Thief are arty but Misty and white denim arent! Theres a few playlists about, when I last went in 2018 I found putting them on shuffle while I played FIFA was a great way to get under the skin of what I wanted to check out
  11. I saw them at Mirrors and they were.....raw live. Some of the vocals were pretty rough
  12. So I'm working through the line up - any electronica kind of vibes beyond WH Lung anywhere? I liked the odd bleep to break stuff up ya know
  13. So amped about The Comet is Coming. It's gonna be vibbbbbbbeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyy
  14. That's a real nice line up. Good headliners, plenty of vibes down the line up. Buying my ticket tonight
  15. I'd be quite disappointed with Pixies as it feels a bit......uninspired for EOTR, they're pretty past it, everyone's seen them a million times since they reformed and no Kim anymore. I'd actually much rather have a band making the step up like Big Thief, even though I personally find them a bit dull live vs record.
  16. Would love to see Self Esteem there
  17. I actually found it a bit claustrophobic and uncomfortable. Pinch points and chairs made it really awkward (sample size of one year admittedly)
  18. I'd back my tastes as being pretty outgoing - there's some interesting stuff there, but it all feels a little Emperor's New Clothes and don't even get me started on the guy's voice. Makes them sound like a joke band
  19. Saw Let's Eat Grandma again yesterday at BST. Not a surprise, but fuck they're tremendously enjoyable
  20. I bought one through twickets last year. Easy process, very secure and were plenty about
  21. I last went in 2011 and it felt a bit lame and lacking in identity even then Not to go all marketing theory, but the strongest ideas start with a "why" - Silver Hayes has never really had its why compared to other areas imo since the SE corner took over in dance terms
  22. Had a whale at my first one last year, and gutted I can't make it this year. Line up is absolutely on point for my tastes. Gutted
  23. Line up is pretty legit. However it's on the weekend between two overseas weddings The planning begins
