    Woo. Yeah it was great. Too many bands seen to list so suppose just peruse them on flickr if you’re interested. Mostly saw bands for the second (or more) time around but quite a few for the first.
    Great experience, would recommend it to anybody (who can stand the mud).


  2. records

    June 20, 2005 by Daniel

    A combination of birthday presents and purchases to add to the collection.

    Presents (from my sister Hannah):

    Reuben – Racecar is Racecar Backwards (signed LP)
    Reuben – Stuck In My Throat (7″ single 2003)
    Kaiser Chiefs – Everyday I Love You Less And Less (7″ single 2005)

    and then today in town at the Left Legged Pineapple I bought (for 50p each!):

    Softcell – Tainted Love (7″ single 1981)
    The Beatles – I Want To Hold Your Hand (7″ single 1963)
    Gary Numan – Cars (7″ single 1979)

    The Softcell and Gary Numan sound great, The Beatles single however seems to be warped causing the needle to jump A LOT for the first half of the song which is a great shame, but it teaches me a fairly new vinyl hunter a few things – check the record before you buy! But for 50p you can’t go wrong really.

    Also for geek spotters I like the fact that i’ve managed to find the original Tainted Love after it appeared in Dr. Who on the jukebox there. He he lol.

    PS Just put up the tent for airing before wednesday.

  6. an update

    June 16, 2005 by Daniel

    So exams are finished now and have been letting hair down a little and getting out to some gigs.

    System of a Down played at the MEN Arena on Tuesday and then I went with Kate, Natalia, Paul and Tony to Reuben wednesday night.

    Attached is the local papers review of the System gig, some flickr pics to follow

    System of a Down @ M.E.N. Arena – 3 out of 5

    Neal Snowdon

    NO NONSENSE: SOAD
    14/06/05

    TICKETS prices were cheaper than average, the light show was basic and between-song banter was non-existent.

    This was no-frills arena rock and the near-capacity crowd loved every pulsating minute. System don’t deal in the niceties of showbusiness.

    For them it’s a case of turn up, tune up and blast it out.

    The result was a solid 90-minute set that had the crowd going wild from the start and ended with grown men fighting over drumsticks lobbed into the crowd by skinbeater John Dolmayan.

    Their musical stew of thrash punk, heavy metal and progressive rock means this Armenian-American four-piece serve up a sound similar to rock opera put through a crusher.

    The opening blasts of BYOB and Revenga and old chestnuts like Chop Suey showed a band unafraid to change tempo and style. And the crowd loved them for it.
