  1. The cricketers were a bloody nuisance, very pleased with themselves, self entitled and unobservant/inconsiderate of anyone else around them
  2. Had another hugely enjoyable weekend, my 12th and probably last EOTR. Musical highlights include Flamingods Spiritualized Ohtis Baxter Dury Stella Donnelly Cass McCombs William Tyler Tyler Childers Lewsberg Pom Poko BCUC BC Camplight Kikogo Myu Non musical highlights include used Tangerine Fields as opposed to Honeybells for first time, much better value, f less room posh showers much better than previous lot and very nice to have squeegee things Thyme and Tide fish stall book lovers having a l
  3. Ezra is currently in the UK promoting his new record, interviewed in his manager's office by the Independent. It's gonna be Ezra, I'm certain
  4. The Leisure Society would be nice. All a bit aggravating really, just bloody say who it is
  5. Should be plenty of room at far end of big main field, past the strange structure. Also, always loads of space farther reaches of family field, towards the glamping , won’t even be disturbed by families there so much space
  6. Sold one last year, seamless
  7. There has been a huge increase in chatterboxes at the garden stage, old geezers in groups being worst offenders
  8. Similar has happened to my youngest, just found out while en route that Houghton festival has been cancelled
  9. It’s going to be a late heatwave. Guaranteed.
  10. I think the festival is a very different beast now to the earlier years in terms of type of band....Not the headliners, never really bother with them, but the support acts
  11. Yep, she’ll go down a storm with the mid evening Woods stage imbibers and chatterboxes
  12. Piss poor Only missed one since it started, and this looks to be the first time there will be periods I’ll be struggling to find something to do
  13. Sometimes theacts themselves will announce at the end of a set, or ask the band when they are flogging their tat at the end of a set, or Line of Best Fit send notifications or, best of all, ask my mate Paul, who has Big Jeff levels of knowledge
  14. 2 quid and no refund, I hope the bloody things are robust
  15. Very underwhelmed by this latest little lot of additions
  16. Just had a listen to Metronomy for the first time. They belong on a cruise ship. I had a listen to Michael Kiwanuka the other week, can’t remember why, but was pleasantly surprised. He could turn out to be a highlight. its not an Americana festival any more is it? This will probably be my last one.
  17. Yes, as I said to the Mrs on Sunday......it’s capitalism.........hardly anything left to buy so they can charge what they like and call it special, even if it isn’t. Thank you to the no shit Sherlock brigade, but I suspect some of the people who go to eotr are aware that they don’t have to buy stuff they think is overpriced......doesn’t stop it being overpriced though
  18. What the hell is is peach and raspberry Weiss?
  19. To be fair, the women in that bar were fantastic and I felt a bit sorry for them
  20. Couldn’t get on but got three tier twos on deposit scheme
  21. Another belter. Saw hardly any of the bands I had intended to due to feeling a bit pale and wan, so tended to just park myself at either Garden Or Woods and just enjoy what came, and I enjoyed everything, apart from the bloody woeful Shopping. Highlights include Shannon and the clams, found myself bopping next to Ezra Furman for that. had too much dignity to ask for a selfie though, A Wesly hung, Hayley Henderickx, Hiss Golden Messenger, John Cale, Insecure Men and the incredible Richard Dawson/ Oh, and Omar, and the Jazz guy at the Garden. Plus loads more. I preferred it when it was mor
  22. currently bloody freezing here in South Wales. Damn weather is toying with us again
  23. Friday bit of a mooch, Hiss Golden Messenger, This is the Kit, The Low Anthem, Big Thief, Jeff Tweedy Saturday Insecure Men, Omar Souleyman, Shame, Gruff Rhys, Vampire Weekend Sunday all day at Garden stage, but might take a look at Idles. Can barely believe I’m choosing to miss Ezra Furman
