Possibly, except that they're then described as "one of those bands that you would never get bored listening to."

yeh, my comment was sort of meant as joke about 'acknowledging eddie argos' reputation'... I really should've thought twice... it's a very serious business talking about this type of thing, I misjudged the tone and I won't do it again

Oh.

Well, you know what I meant. It's easier than going "Eddie Argos, monobrowed funnyman who the NME occasionally do a page or two about off of Art Brut". It only takes a look in the programme or online when you get home. They looked up where POBPAH are from, after all.

I always fear someone like Vice are going to send a reporter so they can go "ha ha, look at these twats with their normal hair", but there really must be some sort of force field of goodwill and loveliness round the place.

Oh, and there's a video for the single on YouTube but that's probably blocked at your work too. It is here.
Be Like Pablo are indeed from Forres. I thought I should chat to the only other Highlanders that I knew to be there an ended up being around when they were giving away free copies of their CD. I did actually buy their 7" though. They're probably not to the liking of everyone on this forum, but they really seem to have made some fans at the weekend.
Thanks guys. We fucking loved indietracks. Iv been having withdrawl from that neon cider, lovely stuff. Thanks for seeing us play, buying our vinyls and taking part in the great CD gold rush of 2010.

This photo is ridiculous. In the strangest way possible.

You said hello to me when I was massively hungover, and I completely forgot about that, then you said hello to me again later, and I was completely surprised that you remembered me from the (Friday, I think) night, then my friend reminded me that you had indeed spoken to me earlier that day. I don't think this makes sense. Anyway, I would have been friendlier if I weren't so thorough confused.
I am struck speechless by the nape of your neck.

Hey we are a nice band. We don't discriminate the hungover from our (mostly drunkern/hungover) ramblings.

Also everyone we spoke to were really sound so I wouldnt worry about not being friendly.

Jesus Suzanne Christ, that's a flawed attempt at a review from yr efestivals man right there. The one line that's just had me blootering salad all over the computer screen was (my highlighting);

"The stage was then set for Everybody Was In The French Resistance... Now! When I saw that they were headlining my first impression was not to bother with a band that can't even manage to get their past and present tenses correct".

Given that barely a single paragraph of his piece goes by without at least one grammar, tense or style faux pas, he's on incredibly thin ice. "Which is a registered charity that depend on volunteers to do most of the work around the site" (paragraph one) isn't a sentence, surely, but rather a clause. Elsewhere, "There was even reference to Michael Jackson, now don't get me wrong I would be the first to criticise any band that decide to make fun of Mr Jackson as I have been privileged to see him perform live and have yet to see any artiste coming remotely close to what Michael Jackson could do on the stage" (paragraph nine) is just wrong on so many levels.

Let he without sin... etc. etc.

I can't argue with Humblebee and Davo's dismay at the reviewer's attitude towards Elizabeth Morris, either. Unnecessary and injudicious.

For me, Indietracks gave me a long weekend of loveliness with my best friend. Our adventure began on Thursday evening in Sheffield enjoying Pete G's band for the third time, the lovely 10p Mixes and The Smittens. Travelling to Derbyshire only takes just over an hour or so from where we live so a mix cd got a listen along the way. Being greeted on arrival by two balloons floating across a sky filled with pale sunshine felt like I'd arrived home. This year indietracks was akin to living in a sunny smile for a long weekend, lovely music, ace people, beautiful scenery, lots of singing and dancing too in the discos. The Pooh Sticks gave me a feeling of pure joy. I think my heart continued to soar throughout their set. Afterwards, the kindling euphoria inside kept me warm until catching the train after a little dance at the last disco. I could go on but will just end by saying I was lucky enough to indulge myself in a gorgeous long weekend and I'm still smiling about the whole range of wonderful moments that brought me.

Here is a video I took of Slow Club singing Giving up on Love.

In the bottom right, you'll see Elizabeth from Allo Darlin going banana's at this one...

Urbantramper were good in the church, I thought. Their last CD's ace, too.

And - did I hear this right? - did Kip TPOBPAH really thank indiepop "for existing"? Aw, sweet.

story of my life, I've been going every year and that never seems to end for me

I hope you break the cycle

this week has been all about reflecting warmly, fuzzily on the great bands and the great people and how great it all is mixed in with those all too familiar feelings of 'I am such a dick, people must think I'm such a dick'

that's my default position and that ain't ever going to change but those other people (not including myself) are lovely, say hi next year, introduce yourself, get chatting and you'll have friends for life (should you want them)

if you can stomach it hang out here some and you'll at least get to know some folks from here you can look out for next year

everyone's pretty supernice
I can relate to that. I had the idea in my head before I went that I was gonna make a 100 new pop friends but ended up mostly just talking to all the folks I already know. But still, great to see everyone!

Aw. I've enjoyed this post more than you could possibly have enjoyed my band!

Another really lovely review, although the third I've seen that finds something to praise about every band they saw except The Loves. I thought they were great, but never mind. http://www.thenationalstudent.co.uk/201 ... acks-2010/
