Re: Indietracks 2016 photos and memories

2016-Year of the balloons. I missed last years because of my nephew being due on indietracks sunday. He was late as well the little bugger. He's one today so we can let him off. Happy Birthday Teddy. Firstly, huge thanks to all the organisers and volunteers for being so ace and putting it all on. It...

Re: Clothing considerations

I'm going for the classic spare trousers, waterproof jacket, jumper and 86 t-shirts combo*

Re: Indietracks announcements: 29-31 July, 2016

According the indietracks website, it's the only UK date. Maybe someone can coax them into a warm up, but I kind of like it's the only date. Makes it really special.

You know when you play fantasy festival, right? Well, if I dreamed up a line up I don't think it could beat this one. And its only the first bit! Well played Indietracks, well played. Your hard work and dedication has come up roses. Well done!xxx

Re: corporation pop #1 - a fun disco [manchester 20/02/2016]

This sounds ace! I'm doing my own club night in Shrewsbury that night or I would have come down. Best of luck, I'm sure i'll be at another one in the future.

I just wish that everyone who stood up to this bullshit would get the same response. That would be a pretty cool world.

Brilliantly and bravely, if depressingly, written statement from Beth Jeans Houghton. (via FB) The man in question has since been sacked.

Re: Is indiepop racist?

Waffling on is OK, but it's the listening that's important. As a 6ft6 white man I've never seen racism or sexism in indiepop (though I have read about it) until the Evans the Death show in Leeds on Monday. Some meat-head attacked Katherine for being female basically. His point was that women are onl...

Re: Is indiepop racist?

True, true. I'm not sure how to put this (and I really don't want to shoot anyone down), but as someone who is dual-heritage BAME, I'm not sure I'm 100% happy with the 'POC' terminology. Sorry. I hope no-one thinks my clumsiness in terminology is anyway meant to cause offence. I'm not 100% happy us...

Re: Indiepop: a celebration of diversity

Further on from that, I was at a Q&A with Matt from Sarah after a showing of My Secret World in Bristol. Someone asked him what he listens to these days. He said the last album he really loved was by Dizzee Rascal, but he was put off from seeing him live as he didn't want to be "the weird old white ...

Re: Is indiepop racist?

I think the main problem with indiepop dealing with racism is that any discussion seems to involve a dozen white people wondering what they can do and little or no input from POC. I think the reason for this is whenever POC speak up they are often shot down or totally misunderstood. The two most dam...

Re: The Football

It's got to be time for FIFA to put their hands up and admit the Qatar world cup idea is a total disaster. Forget about the heat, there's already been 1,200 deaths linked to the construction of the stadia. That said, I wouldn't mind a Christmas world cup. I hate Christmas and reckon watching Belarus...
