Hi Johnny. Notekillers were very good (not what you really wanted to hear, I expect!). If you imagine one of Branca's symphonys reduced down to guitar/bass/drums three-piece, you're getting close to what it was like. MCIAA was one of the best things I've seen all year, but please don't ask for a description - all I can say is that it suprised me to find myself dancing to something that had no rhythm track.

I enjoyed NWW, but wish I'd seen at least some of Ashtray Navigations.

Damn... I knew that The Notekillers and MCIAA would be amazing... it is however impossible to be in two places at one time... funny that.

I'm really pleased that I made the effort to see Ashtray Navigations but alas I only caught the climax of their set...

It must have been quite something to witness!When i went to see them i was blown away by the way they started playing.I felt like jumping with joy and engage in pugilistic activity with the walls of the venue.A total aural celebration.

Actually that pretty much sums up how I felt for the whole weekend... in many ways I still haven't come down.

I loved NWW. I was right at the front and it was so cool to see all the weird shit they used to make the noise. At the end my 'friend' passed out and was all over the place so we had to take him out and lose our place in the crowd which was shit.

I didn't really like the first set of vocals at the beggining, I just wanted him to shut up, but the rapping was cool. I recognised Two Shaves and a Shine bass riff but it was all good.

Favorite bands in no order were Dinosaur Jr (twice), Sonic Youth, Skaters, Melvins, Blood Stereo

I was abit dissapointed with Double Leopards and pissed about missing Bardo Pond but thankfully I saw them in Nottingham the week before. Overall an amazing weekend, doubt there will ever be a line up that good again which is pretty depressing

Agreed. The first vocals were almost excruciatingly painful, which was a real shame because I loved the music they were being sung over.

Yeh they were so bad they made me cringe. The relief when he walked off the stage was overwhelming. Do you think they wanted him to sing because everybody would hate it or do they genuinely like his voice?

I enjoyed Tibet's vocals. I generally enjoy his vocals. I was pointing out to my friend that, although he's not a 'proper' singer, his was one of the few voices that could find a consonance in the amorphous blob of NWW's music. Also, if you'd have seen the look on the security guards face (left side speaker) as Tibet started singing... it was priceless (one of the few times in my life I've wished I had a camera).

I saw a bit of the Notekillers. Wasn't sure about it, plus my friend claimed he was really in a drone kinda mood so we went to dig the Skaters and boy am I glad we did. Saw these kids before and seems like they can do no wrong, charged drones straight from the source.
Wouldn't have minded seeing MCIAA. Saw them before and they were really cool, plus videos on EP have heightened my intrigue. Alas, hadda miss them to check out some Nels Cline who didn't disappoint.
RE: NWW. The aforementioned cringe inducing vocals were the deal breaker for me. That and the funky bass. There was some cool noise before that but the vocals were simply atrocious. Some asshole crooning about the dark side of the moon. Geezus! Went downstairs to Ashtray Navigations who I was also quite indifferent to.
