will do! should be there early afternoon, so i imagine i'll be up for a fair bit of pintage before Avi Buffalo start!

Is it far from Centre Stage to the Pavilion? There's only about 3 or 4 bands on that i'm not too bothered about on the friday. Things could get hectic!

feel free to try and find me, too.

I haven't really worked out what I want to see, yet. So am probably gonna spend a lot of time wandering around unsure of what I want to see.
not really here

We're leaving Glasgow at 7am. Oof. Should be there mid-afternoon as well if the traffic goes in our favour.

Centre Stage is upstairs from the Pavilion (go to the back of the Pavilion, turn left then left again and up the stairs) - Reds is through the doors next to the Centre Stage entrance so it shouldn't take you long to get from stage to stage unless there's a queue to get into Centre Stage.

Ace!

4 years ago, Mission Of Burma were on at the same time as Broken Social Scene, and i was right fucked off. I opted for Burma. This time BSS finish at the same time as Burma start up, so i hope i don't miss anything especially exciting. Gah, they'll open with Academy Fight Song now, won't they?

i'm really, really excited anyway.

When I saw Broken Social Scene they irritated me so much that I stopped listening to them for about two years. I think they'd be a lot better in a stricter festival time-slot where they can't indulge themselves quite as much, though!

Having seen them in a headlining slot on the Pavilion Stage at the Explosions ATP, I'm afraid not! They do like a noodle and Kevin Drew still thinks he's Bono. Mind you, they might have toned that down in the intervening period.

Vindication!

1 hour and 20 minutes. Then 15 minutes up the hill to the station. Then 50 minutes on the train to Glasgow. Then Built To Spill at 8pm. Then Dinosaur Jr at 9.30pm. Then sleep. Then I get more excited! Even allowing for hours and hours and hours on the M6...

i saw Spill and Dinosaur last sunday! It was typically amazing. Lou Barlow's hair now completely obscures his face, which is what you want! 40 year-old men are the kings of the mosh. You'll have a blast, guaranteed. Although i'm envious of the fact that the London show gets Yuck in support too.

I met Doug Martsch afterwards and he was lovely.

i'd been drinking for 6 hours before i got there, and obviously carried on during the show, and for a bit after. Then went home, made tea and toast and sat down to try and watch Everton's goal on SSN.

next thing i knew, i woke up on the couch at 5am. not the best start to a monday, but a testament to a great sunday.

Rock n roll.

I'm well old so I imagine I'll be in bed shortly after Times New Viking finish tomorrow night!

ATP festival review and pics. Mark Eitzel was the surprise stand out for me, but I loved so many acts.

Cheers, i'll read that in a bit. Unsurprisingly Pavement were my favourite act of the weekend, but Mark Eitzel wasn't far behind. I liked his running concept joke throughout the set about being a former redcoat, and only getting the gig becuase butlins stipulated that one of their own turns performed a set amongst the indie rockers.

Aside from that i particularly enjoyed Wax Fang, The Raincoats, Mission Of Burma, The Walkmen's hits, Times New Viking, The 3Ds, Atlas Sound and Still Flyin.

Apparently Omar Souleyman was unmissabble, but i missed him, and Saccharine trust were dreadful, but they were on at the same time as the cup final. Ah well.

Was anyone else at the chalet party with the strobe light, fog machine and a naked girl dancing on the table? "i'm not cool enough for this," i muttered to my friend at the time.

Omar Souleyman was amazing, really felt like an event, crazy rhythms, amazing voice and he was so calm...working the crowd like a seasoned pro ...only saw a bit though before racing over for the tail end of Atlas Sound (it was his birthday and he was sweetness personified) and Still Flyin' who were excellent.

Still Flyin's new stuff (party kraut...?) was especially ace.

disappointed to have missed The Clean, and Quasi were ok rather than particularly exciting. Or maybe i was just suffering from band fatigue round then.

The real disappointments for me were Spiral Stairs (really average, apart from two Preston School songs) and Broken Social Scene (really overcooked U2 stuff... i wasn't into it. Even the stuff off You Forgot It In People seemed much less fun and much more... well, something i didn't like anyway).

i had a great weekend though - these were the only real disappointments.

I know what you mean by band fatigue, too many wailing solos...made acts like Still Flyin and Mark Eitzel even better. I was mesmerised by Janet Weiss the Quasi drummer....wow, best drummer of the weekend.

It's been the second best ATP I've been to. The first will always by the bowlie weekender way back...Belle and Sebastian, Cornelius, Jon Spencer Blues Explosions and a before they were massive Flaming Lips is going to take some beating. Pavement's one almost managed it.

Oh yeh, Janet Weiss is great! I suspect i'm alone in thinking this, but i reckon her Keith Moon-y style is far more suited to Quasi and The Jicks than it ever was to Sleater-Kinney. i haven't heard a Quasi record since 1998, so i shouldn't have been too surprised that they've changed a bit.

Incidentally, i'm still sort-of surprised that The Jicks didn't play, since 3/4 of them were there. But i suppose they're arguably big enough to headline (or near enough) anyway, so maybe it made sense that they didn't.

Avi Buffalo and Surfer Blood were 2 bands i really wanted to see, but couldn't as we had to wait ages for one of our 'master shareholders' to turn up. Ah well.
