    Andy Gill

    So sad to hear about his passing. Entertainment came out in 79 when i was 19 and changed my musical tastes forever. The brittleness and discord he added to the Mick Green/Wilco Johnson style riffs were a thing of beauty
  4. Royal Blood and Fontaines DC playing at This is Tomorrow on the same weekend.-are Fontaines they at the same level as Blossoms last year?
  5. Von Bondies back for a 20th anniversary tour later in the year https://www.ents24.com/uk/tour-dates/the-von-bondies

    Sleeping At Glasto

    Couldn't believe how good these were compared to the the orange foamy ones. Almost total sound block
  7. Do you think there will be that much interest? They were never that big first time around but I guess it may be another case of a band being a lot bigger when they reform.

    2020 headliners

    Similar for me: V festival 2003 was great and Leeds 2006 was abominable, self indulgent noodling
  9. Made a conscious effort to get back into new albums this year rather than just playing the lead tracks or oldies but goodies, so for the first time i can do a full top twenty of my favourites although they are in no particular order. I have noticed that it has all gone very soft rock and middle aged singer songwritery this year which certainly would not have been the case years gone by, but as i am nearing 60 and listen to most music while pottering around the kitchen or sitting down in the garden with a few wines or some home grown i am more than comfortable with the way that things have turned out and am especially pleased that many of the artists are new to me this year. Robert Foster - Inferno Jenny Lewis - On the Line Moon Duo - Stars are the light Richard Hawley - Further Omar Souleyman - Shlon Purple Mountains - Purple Mountains Prince Fatty - In the Vipers Shadow Case & Status - Return to Jungle Peter Perrett - Humanworld Dee White - Southern Gentleman Faye Webster - Atlanta Millionaires Club Fat White Family - Serfs Up Fontains DC - Dogrel Ibibio Sound Machine - Doko Mien Jay Som - Anak Ko Tycho - Weather The Specials - Encore Tinariwen - Amadjar Vagabon - Vagabon Lizzo - Cuz i love you
  10. I must like it, it is my second favourite genre
  11. What on earth type of genre Chamber Psych?
  12. Ashamed to say that it was only when i saw John Fogerty supporting Bruce Springsteen a few years ago that i realised that Status Quo's Rocking all over the world was a cover version!
  13. Haunting tribute to Jo Cox which opened the Pyramid stage in 2019
  14. Great new album from him a few weeks ago - here is a taste

    Don't know how much credence this has but on the Bearded Theory forum last month when Idles was mentioned as a possible the festival admin posted this response. « Reply #22 on: October 27, 2019, 01:47:09 PM » Quote from: maggieloveshopey on October 27, 2019, 01:33:41 PM Made up with the Flaming Lips, great booking! (but then I also love Marmite...). Not that fussed about missing the Specials. Would have been nice, but then again these days there's only three of the originals left. I was lucky enough to see them when they first reformed, when it was the whole lot (minus Jerry Dammers) and it was great, but I don't know if it'd feel the same with half the band gone. Underworld would be a brilliant headliner if they were available. Pixies as well. Idles must also be at headline status by now, I reckon. pixies not about and idles on an exclusive elsewhere at a major festy. Prob reading and leeds Logged
