2019 Predictions

Recommended Posts

Saw William Doyle last night...his new stuff sounded fantastic and very weird to see him rocking out on guitar after what he did during his East India Youth days.

His late night Big Top set in 2015 remains one of my favourite performances ever so hopefully he'll be playing this year.

I did see him walking around last year as a normal punter (I assume) so it's clear he enjoys the festival.

I really wanted to go to that. So it wasn't typical of his previous work then?

I got chatting to him and his girlfriend last year whilst waiting for Gruff to do his piano stage set. Nice guy, hope he plays again.

Well he had a band behind him so it was always going to be different - some of the songs were undoubtedly East India Youth-esque, however there were a couple of rockier 'traditional' songs that were a surprise, and William was even hammering out a guitar solo at one point.

I would say it was pretty much a continuation from what he was doing a few years ago, and I would imagine the recorded music will be more similar to that than what he played last night.

A particular highlight was a feedback-driven song that he played solo over what seemed to be a pre-recorded backing track...I'm not actually sure what was going on at points as it literally sounded like the band were playing, but he was just hunched over his guitar and kept going over to the keyboard pressing stuff.

He seemed to be having a good time anyway, and he seemed pretty tight with the band so I'm guessing it's people he's known for quite a while.

EotR FB feed talking about four of their ‘absolute favourites’ releasing albums today: James Blake, Deerhunter, Steve Gunn and Sharon van Etten.

Personally I can do without James Blake’s wibbling, but the other three would be fab...

I'd love him to play. Funnily enough I didn't know he was making music under his own name until I saw this gig advertised in the EotR programme. Loved both East India Youth albums and thought the live shows were exceptional.

Beak > have just self confirmed.

This is great, saw it on their new tour dates poster. Has them down for the 29th which is the Thursday and would imagine them on the Woods stage ratehr than the Tipi given the siaze of crowd they had in 2016 as Bigtop headliners. of couer the 29th could just be a 'holding date'.

Their 2016 set was excellent...I remember being right down the front completely engrossed in it.

I'd love a similar sort of placing in the lineup, although I could see them anywhere except the Tipi (watch them get announced as Thursday Tipi headliners now).
