    I finally managed to pick up a copy of this yesterday. It's fantastic

    Albums of the Year 2018

    Love this set. Absolutely superb. It's aregular spin at Mardy Mansions, and one I'd forgotten about when picking my albums of the year. Nice one. Might have it down as 'Box Set of the Year' as it goes.

    Fucking hell, is Lethal Bizzle still a thing? Thought he’d be an Uber driver or something by now.

    Hehe, there’s not really much to call between the Prodigy and Macca is there? Both heritage acts, both decades past their best. I’m struggling to see the Prodigy as anything approaching contemporary or relevant. It’s coming to something when Hot Chip, with a mere 6 albums under their belt, are the bright young things.

    Exactly my view. Couldn’t put it any better than this

    Spotify Wrapped 2018

    Don't get me started on this. Got the email earlier, was all excited. nearly ended in a divorce this afternoon when I found out that my wife had been using my account on our home Sonos and apparently my favourite artist is Ed fucknuts Sheeran.

    Has anyone met Michael /Emily Eavis ?

    Ah man, yeah, that’s it. Memories are flooding back now. I’ll definitely try and work up the courage to come and say hello next year. I normally get to your field and lose my bottle. Next time though, next time... (you still flogging 4 cans of stella for a fiver? )

    In that case I undoubtedly bought beers from you in 93, was there for about 2 or 3 weeks after the festival, and remember buying beers from some guys in a bus/truck at the top of the field. Rob Kearle? That the real taskmaster fella? We were on a tractor crew collecting all the bins etc so avoided the worst of the heads down, crawling across a field, getting it fag butt clean. Only did that for one afternoon when our tractor driver was off. There was a Rob bloke walking around with a swagger stick/riding crop tucked under his arm barking at people.

    Yeah, she did nothing wrong in that set, and objectively it was really good, but it was a proper 'shit weather, brexit vote' slump. It was only the exceptional lcd set afterwards that was able to lift the spirits, by providing escapism. PJ that night tapped into, and reflected the general mood. LCD, on the other hand, hijacked the mood and refused to let it go where it was originally heading.

    Hehehe, i'd not seen that gesture for years and years. Fantastic. Was ubiquitious in my early teenage years. Surely time to bring it back.

    Yeah, don't get me wrong, I really like Metronomy, just feel that their star is waning a bit, the last thing they did of any note was 'Love Letters', right? (I thik there was something else since then, but it didn't really register with me), and that was what, 5 years ago? Feels like a long time anyway.

    I got to say, at this stage there's a lot of interesting bands active next summer, you've got yer Beach House, yer Hot Chip, yer Bon Iver, all that mob. Nice counterbalance to the tedious inevitability of the courteeners, blossoms, gallaghers etc.

    Ooooh, excellent. It's all lining up very nicely

    Very much hoping for Kurt Vile now. New record is great. Whereas Metronomy strike me as a busted flush

    Got paid by him from an old school metal petty cash box back in 93 or so. Got to be honest, just knew he was the boss who was doling our wages. No idea of his stature. Reckon I’d be too tongue tied and in awe to say owt to him these days.
