Mrs CthuIu pointed out to me that, despite me having an almost life-altering time at Farm Fest the only post I have really done is about the anger caused by a spikey little man in a crappy coffee shop. I think that misses the point a little…

The reason I was so angry about the coffee shop debacle was precisely because I had been so removed from stressful pettiness for the entire weekend. I’m not angry at a forgettable coffee-based Napoleon; rather, I am angry at the world’s population for their inability to just chill the hell out. Why can’t we just all get along? No, seriously, why can’t we? Read More

Today has been a bit less eventful yet an interesting one nevertheless. I’ll start at the end (of the bands).

Due to “technical issues and curfews” Submotion Orchestra started half an hour late and still had to finish at their alotted time. This meant that the festival headliners got just over half an hour to play their set. To make matters worse, halfway through one of their few songs the sound completely failed, leaving the audience to fill in the missing bit. It was only down for a few seconds but it definitely helped to kill an otherwise fascinating groove. The band were apologetic as were the organisers. Harsh for their fans but I actually have a new found respect for them. Despite all the issues, it was actually a great performance.

I started the day with a nasty hangover which stuck to me like an over excited dog to a vicars leg. Consequently, I drank far less today and have gone to bed with a pretty clear head. It’s 2am and we need to be up and packed at 9.

Again, I’ll try to do a proper catch up when I get home so, until then…

Thanks for reading, now pass the earplugs, this bass is aggressive!

Last night I watched a documentary about the 5 most important years in David Bowie’s career. As I watched I realised that there was very little, if any, music that I didn’t find at least a little interesting.

Bowie was never really on my radar in my formative years. I had friends who worshipped him but that only helped to further distance me from him. I was mainly a metal head and the fay, ethereal Bowie seemed like the antithesis of the people I respected. Read More

Farm Fest is coming up fast to meet me. The travel is now sorted and the plans for the previous night have been drawn. Now my mind is turning to the music, what to expect and what I will need to take.

Obviously, I’ll be taking my usual essentials┬ábut now I have a couple more essentials – a kilt, my new honcho and a rather snazzy last-minute-purchase poncho from the Download Festival (it got really cold on the last day and I had just enough cash to buy myself something warm). It’s going to be a matter of travelling pretty light given the number of changes we need to make to catch all our connecting coaches/trains. Read More

I used to detest the music industry. I thought they were overbearing, money-grabbing cockgoblins out to make everyone’s life miserable. Who knew they were actually protecting the public from the egotisitical, overbearing, money-grabbing cockgoblins they represented?
