That reminds me. Thankyou very much for the CNT badge, Jamie, It's much appreciated. Only, you know how you said it was 'genuine',well, it appears to have been made in Birmingham.
I am struck speechless by the nape of your neck.

There was a big pile of squashed metal by the steamroller. Maybe that's what happened to all the badges? Either that or a wormhole exists over the site that only attracts badges.

well perhaps the 35,000 members of the CNT buy all their badges from an online badge shop in birmingham. had you considered that? no you haven't, because of your latent reverse imperialist mindset. sorry ray. his actually words to me were something like, "i bought all these when we were doing a cycle tour through bilbao. they were dead nice to us." bah.

in retrospect, it's a good thing i didn't buy all those magic beans he was offering as well.

indietracks was good eh? i wish i could have three burgers a day in real life.

I'm flattered by the interest, but as only the Heavenly and the St Christopher t-shirts (both of which got an airing over the weekend) remain of the Sarah ones I got back in the day (the others either rotted or were sold off in indecent haste when times wuz harder), I'm reluctant to let any more slip away. Looks like we saw pretty much the same bands during Sunday, Christo. Are we secretly related? ;-D
Hello Jeremy! I didn't know you were on Anorak. Lovely meeting you too! I really enjoyed our chat about Subway and Sarah records. Now I know why Victor has such a fine taste in music :-) Humousexual should definitely play next year's Indietracks. As for your Heavenly tshirt, are you sure you wouldn't swap it for my blueboy "Meet Johnny Rave"? Hahaha, it would be nice to see you again at Nottingham alldayer next month. I will definitely be there. Milky Wimpshake are playing - You can't miss it :-)

I assume you are, in which case hello!) but my word, they were sublime. As close to the next great Sarah band as could ever be. I'm devastated I didn't get to the merch stand in time to buy their album but that will be rectified soon enough
Hi lloydybwoy! Yes, that's me from the Trembling Blue Stars website, Farewell to Forever (co-run with Marianthi). Nice to see you are on Anorak. Oh, I've got so many lovely memories from those years: going to every TBS gig in London and South East, interviewing Bobby and Beth, sending letters to them and waiting for demos. Happy, happy days! For three years TBS were the centre of my little world. I just avoided listening to any other music. Until the summer of 2002, when Bobby decided enough was enough and put an end to live performances :-(

Thanks for reminding this and hope you stay on Anorak. It's the only online forum I enjoy posting in. If you happen to live in/near London, come over to the next indiepop gig and say hello.It would be nice to meet you.

I agree Cavalcade were indeed sublime! Can't wait to see them again soon.

Hahahahaha. He'll choke on his chickpeas at the very idea, Christos! Mind, I do still find the odd thing before he does - James Figurine's astonishing solo stuff springs to mind.

The will's certainly there, but either workload, the logistics of being an Anglo-German band, or sometimes both, prevent greater live activity during Indietracks and other times of year. I don't know if they've been approached to do anything else this year (the German festie at the start of September? Nottingham? Another evening put on by Vic at the Betsey Trotwood? Neither of the above?) - keep 'em peeled, though.

I'm planning to be there on the Saturday as things stand, to be able to see The Sunny Street and the Wimpshake in particular! Sunday depends on some pre-existing freelance work commitments.

See you then, if not before! :-)

Took some days to come and I was hoping to escape it, but I'm now hardly hit by "post-Indietracks trauma". Not good at all.

For various reasons (time and personal) I haven't added my memories to this yet, but here's my socialism-themed review for the Morning Star. Expect many woodbine-smoking 90 year old revolutionaries to come next year.

It's a bit of a mess, but I'm happy with my Just Joans description.

The picture makes it looks like Indietracks is now held inside the Hadron Collider.

Like the Shrag description as well.

Harking back to everyone being bumbling, shy indie kids and not talking to anyone new...

I know I was tremendously guilty of this and I know we give ourselves a hard time over it but, having just spent a weekend with a bunch of over-confident performers attempting to make themselves heard at every opportunity, I think we should be very pleased with what we've got. It's so much better than the alternative!

i remembered another cute thing! holly from the smittens randomly came up to me to talk about my jacket (she has the same on in a different colour combination and was telling me about not knowing which one to go for) then we talked a bit about being small and about clothes and stuff and it was really cute! i was singing the praises of old navy.
