Re: Colour Me Wednesday

And the fact two teenage girls finished their set while grown men threw bottles at them when pretty much any of the other band would have stormed off in the same situation makes them a lot more credible.

I'll shut up now...

Re: Colour Me Wednesday

And the thing that's made me cross is that you're using the fact that they were bottled as an indication of their worthiness or credibility but it's just an indication of violent, loutish behavior by a bunch of knobheads who were upset that 'their' festival was being invaded by girl cooties.

Re: Colour Me Wednesday

In 2000 Daphne & Celeste were a big hit amongst indiepop fans in Sheffield and filled the dance floor whenever they were played at Offbeat. They were bottled by misogynistic lad rock loving twats at Reading. They're a great pop band - some of the best pop is 'manufactured' and much better than a lot...

Re: Greggs

Everyone! Yesterday I had a limited edition vegetable katsu pastie. Veg and chickpeas (chickpeas!) in a sort of chip shop curry sauce. The pastry had sort of crispy bits on as well (see Wheatabeat passim - I really liked that though!). I'm probably not doing it justice but it was a thing of profoun...

Re: The weather pessimism thread

Current reports suggest a biblical deluge in the early hours of Saturday morning. Why oh why am I camping again this year? Otherwise maybe a few showers during Sunday. Don't worry, our tent will keep you dry! Anyway the deluge has now moved to Friday evening - just in time for all the bands on the ...

That's a great article Pete. At about three quarters of the way through I was thinking "he's not written about Stoke!" and was going to come here and admonish you about it but then you made it more than alright at the end. I may have to disagree with you about the best gig ever - that for me would b...
