  1. And I've still got to go to a private clinic to get a PCR covid test so I can fly next week. 200 quid I could have spent on records. Bastards.

    2020 New Music

    Arab Strap announce a new album, via an interview in the Guardian today. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/sep/03/return-arab-strap-sex-death-eternal-preoccupations-hedonism
  3. Thanks for the response. Pretty central, I guess. Staying down on the harbourside. Don't really know Bristol that well, unfortunately
  4. Hello mate, can I pick your brains, please? I'm going to Bristol to meet some friends this weekend, as a replacement for EOTR What's the score there at the moment, do you need to reserve tables in pubs etc? Or can you just walk in, all spontaneous?

    yeah, first new music in 15 years from them as a combo. Got to be honest, didn't think it would ever happen again They've had a really good lockdown, loads of stuff on their bandcamp page, live albums, compilations, oddities etc - all of it pay what you want, well worth checking out.

    Awwwww, thanks mate, that's really lovely of you. I didn't get a ticket last October, so just couldn't face being on here, but you know how it is, what you going to do, eh?

    New Arab Strap and of course, it's a belter. Nobody writes an opening couplet like these c**ts
  8. For me, It's all tied in with seeing them at Newcastle Poly the week Parklife came out, and they were on absolute fire, urgent and hungry. I was with a really lovely girl I was seeing at the time, who nicked me a (bright orange) t-shirt from the march stall afterwards. Wore that for years. Can't really separate the album from that summer, that gig and then Glastonbury a couple of months later. Not an album I ever revisit now, can't remember the last time I played it, but I'll always have a fondness for it, a Proustian rush of that intro for Girls & Boys kicking in and the whole room g

    No indoor stages?

    I think the reason the JP can't be open air is sound pollution, it's the village end of the site, right? Hence the late night stuff all being the other end of the festival, further away from residents
  10. Blur/13 pretty much inseparable . Maybe Blur by a whisker Other than that, yeah, Wooderson speaks truth, as always Blur/13 Parklife Modern Life Magic Whip Great Escape Leisure And I concur with Hugh, Think Tank needs an asterisk, sits outside the canon for me

    Back-Up Plans

    Yeah, I’m based in Moscow for about 8 months of the year. If you do come over, give me a shout, I’d be happy to meet you for a pint. And in the meantime, if you’ve got any questions about visiting Russia, feel free to PM me.

    Nothing. None of us got anywhere near. Same as you, by the sound of things? Sorry to hear it

    Back-Up Plans

    Primavera, Nos Lisbon, Mad Cool all potentially possible for us. Did Primavera in ‘17 as a replacement when we failed on T-day (although eventually we got tickets in the resale). Got EOTR at the end of the summer and a week in Edinburgh during August for the Fringe both booked
  15. Currently undecided. Not sure i’m ready to put my life on hold till next April. Plus, a huge part of my going is that it helps me get through the Moscow winter, with rumours, announcements etc. Without being able to have that, a massive part of the experience is diminished. So, I’m taking a few days to have a ponder. But, at the moment, leaning towards not going for resale.
