cmon, do it in ireland guys!

i heard hair police , double leopards, bardo pond and magik markers were insanely brilliant

Palmer Eldritch 12.11.2006 06:32 AM

The weekend was amazing. thurston's improv set with magik markers drummer was unbelievable. both sonic youth sets were very different (i snuck into both). They started the first set with teenage riot and finished the second set with it. great version of 100% on the secoind set. more info when i wake up. peter broetzmann was mind-blowing, dinosaur were the loudest thing i've ever heard. xxx

Fucking brilliant is all I can say. Met Lee and he ended up taking a pic of me SY tat for the website, lovely bloke he his. Saw Thurston and Kim but didn't wanna bother them. My friends ended up seeing me naked more than they should of. Had a sexual frustration that was sky high (and I mean sky high)

Set list for Friday in no order

Teenage riot
Erics Trip
Catholic Block
Shaking hell
Do you believe in rapture
What a waste

There was one more but I didn't regonise it.

I thought I saw Cantankerous at ATP and managed to get some balls and ask her but alas it wasn't so I walked away feeling like a dork.

sonicl 12.11.2006 09:47 AM

fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck

That was rather good.

SY weren't at their best for their Friday show, which was a bit short and lacklustre, but I understand that the Saturday show was better. The Bark Haze (Thurston + Gown) show on Sunday afternoon was stunning. I filmed all but the last three or four minutes on my camera from the front row, but you're going to have to be patient before you can see it, as it's the first time I've done this and I don't really know what to do next.

I spoke with all four band members at various times, and they were all wonderful people. Special mention has to go to Steve, who was happy to chat for ages on a fan-to-fan basis. I think I may love him.

As brilliant as the music was meeting loads of boardies, all of whom were lovely, with the exception of Glice, whose head was so far up his own arse that when he spoke I had to use a stethoscope to hear him.


I'm off to bed now, I'll post more later.

Prickery, absolute prickery. Just because you're too old to get NNCK you have to lash out at me.

Iain is a very beautiful person. I want his bum-babies.

Too old to get NNCK? Surely you mean old enough to know prententious bollocks when I see it.

The only good thing I can find to say about NNCK is that they were at least responsible for the weekend's only public showing of a pair of mammaries. But I couldn't even see them properly because I only had my reading glasses with me.

EDIT - Please note that the sexist element of this post exists only for the benefit of a decent petty argument with Mr Glice. I am not going to be fooled into saying that NNCK had any appeal to me just because of the presence of a topless lady.

Pervy old man. Did you leave your trenchcoat in the chalet?

Thomas Moronic 12.11.2006 10:37 AM

I had a great weekend. I saw the Saturday Sonic Youth show, which was great. The stuff from Rather Ripped sounds a lot better live - Pink Steam was especially fantastic. It's a shame there were no songs from Sonic Nurse. Other highlights for me, were: Wolf Eyes (incredible), The Melvins (relentless), Dead Machines, Dinosaur Jr, The Stooges, Hair Police, Prurient.

The last band I saw on Saturday night was Be Your Own Pet - they were completely shambolic, all over the place, but in a good way. Thurston appeared at the end of their set and helped them destroy the stage - a nice way to finish the festival.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 09:30 AM.
