Swindon is a punishing environment for sensitive souls.

Re: Denmark

Glad to her you enjoyed the gig! some days i feel like i do miss denmark, and would like to live there, if only for a period of time, and i would definitely like to study there. to work there though, not a chance. there's just such a huge difference in work behavior/hierarchy, and i'm definitely mor...

Re: Leicester

How long would it take me to walk to Leicester Tigers' ground from the station, Leicesters? And is it easy to find? I've been past it loads of time, but I'm not sure how far it is from the traino. 10 - 15 minutes - you walk straight ahead for ten minutes, then turn left. Someone with updated Leices...

Are you Swedish or just living in Sweden? The only bad things I've ever heard about Denmark have come from Swedes :)

Re: Denmark

I was sort of hoping I may have a job interview out in Copenhagen to coincide - It could still happen any time between now and mid September, but my chance of making the Give It Ups seems to have become a very long shot.

Re: stitch-stitch records

The combination of the hard to find location and stupid 10 o clock last train home on Sunday have reluctantly made me sit it out for the Bristol show tomorrow.
The reasons to move back to Bristol grow and grow..

Re: Your Indietracks 2010 Wishlist

I'd like Helen Love, Darren Hayman, The Essex Green The Give it ups, Sunny Street and Days please. Is it time to stretch to a full 3 day festival too? For me there was just too much crammed into two days - I wanted to see every band playing, and it was just impossible, I missed so much... Also there...

Re: Days

My copy of downhill arrived the other day, sadly I no longer have a record player due to my last enforced move. Anyone know of an mp3 download site for the tracks on vinyl? i think that there should be a code for mp3 with the 7" - have you checked? I've just had a close look, I couldn't see anythin...

Re: Days

Re: General Stuff People Want to Know

Sorry if this has been answered, gave the thread a quick skim and couldn't see the answer to my question, which is...

Can you buy weekend tickets (sat/sun) on the gate?

Its recently become clear I'm free to go, but I don't have a ticket. Is there danger of selling out / already sold out?

Re: Big Pink Cake Indiepop Weekender July 11th and 12th Bristol!

Not being much up with music and things, I'd not heard of Sunny Street or Days, and they were both fantastic!
Great to have it finishing early so people could get trains back too.

Re: Those tiny ickle laptops like Eees and what have you

My laptop's got a physical issue which will cause it to break some time (basically, the hinges are badly designed and they've snapped right across the plastic on both corners), and I so rarely use it for anything other than pissing about on t'internet that I don't see the point in getting a full-si...

Re: Big Pink Cake Indiepop Weekender July 11th and 12th Bristol!

The only pub I can think of on St Nicholas Street was called the crown (or something like that) and the first Big Pink Cake night I went to was there, has it changed its name? The Mothers Ruin is 50 yards from The Crown - just across the road - is a great little venue! I am looking forward to this ...
