Re: Pic 'n' Mixx mix CD swap - what did you get?

I put one in which looks a lot like this :- http://www.flickr.com/photos/62162125@N08/6002318287/in/photostream I wanted to just post the picture as an image, but damned if I can figure out how. The artwork is by Indiehorse and it's unsuprisingly fab. I got one in return which I've not had the pleas...

Re: Post-Indietracks Popshow! Sheffield 01/08

That was ace, and a joy and honour to be asked to play with the other 3 really, really, excellent bands.

I'm amazed that people had so much energy after the weekend to just keep on dancing!

Re: Anorak meet-up at Indietracks: Saturday 12:30, signal bo

Much like Mr Andy up there, I missed this too; due to last minute contact lens issues (not mine) that led to a long walk to Ripley. But I suspect most people know what I look like anyway.

It is, but it's proper overcast innit?

I'm just going to wear a raincoat and that's it. Good for both rain and heat.

Re: Nottingham

We're driving too James, and also will probably have space. Can't say for sure as need to check with Kerry but I expect you could probs have a lift.

We'd be setting off early mind, not quite sure when, but probably midday or there abouts.

Re: The Football

Oh good lord. Could my beloved Rovers become much more of a laughing stock. That said, the image is totally inaccurate. David Dunn would be eating a pie, not chicken legs. Rovers fan here too.

Yep, this looks really good.

Great line-up, lovely to see Let's Whisper on there, I keep forgetting what a cracking album they put out this year. It's ace.

Re: 'Orrors

Night of the demon is SUPERB. Creepy as hell, absolutely wonderfully acted and the special effects are actually darn good for a film which was made in 1957. Plus Kate Bush sampled the line "It's in the trees, it's coming!" for the beginning of Hounds Of Love so you just know it's going to be good. A...

I'm going again this year for the 3rd year in a row. It's a great festival and this year's line up is unbelievable good all the way through the bill. Probably more excited about some of the lesser bands then the actual headliners. I think they've finished announcing bands but Thursday night had a co...

Re: Anorak meet-up at Indietracks?

I was gonna say a lot of us will probably know some of the people standing by said signal box and just gravitate over to say hi, but obviously there'll be new people to meet as well.
