Sitting in the shitter at the Love Revisited gig at the Brook.

There's about 50 of us, so all we need to do is support the band.  

Upstairs closed off. 

Small venue

Small feeling. 

Time to make our own fun....onwards... 

 They must have made the toilets bigger since I was last in The Brook.

Danced. me heed off.

The Temptations Southside, Es Castell Town Square, Menorca.

LOL. Red sequinned jackets ahoy for a Motown showdown.

I am amazed that nobody in the aged audience had a massive heart attack.

Gig made even more memorable by the dazed and confused British girl wandering onto the stage for the final number and (badly) joining in with the slick dance moves of this South African retro combo.

I laughed so hard I nearly did a little squirt of wee.

Looking forward to the horse racing in the streets on Monday and the giant papier mache heads of the fiesta Saint Jaume.

Bit late with this one, but went to see The Charlatans in Newcastle on 17th December, having seen them a countless amount of times 10-15, this was the first time in about 8 years (mainly as their ticket prices are always off the scale). This gig was pretty poor. Not sure if it was bad sound in the venue, but they were not doing it for me on this occasion, just never seemed to hit the groove. I think this will be the last time I purchase tickets for their own gig, but will see them if at a festival. 

Got my MUSE tickets today, now I know this will be mind blowing as per usual. 

 All has been forgiven and normal service has been resumed. Just got back from the Thursday night at Kendal Calling and The Charlatans were amazing. Sound was great, set was great and Tim seemed to be having a great time. The crowd were happy and in party mood, really really good and I am so happy!

Also saw ASH today and they also put on a great show. Good tempo as per normal. Love this band live.

Tomorrow is a bit of a slow day at the Festival with only a couple of bands we want to see being We are Scientists and Catfish & the Bottlemen and then over to comedy for Jason Manford.

Off to the BBC Proms David Bowie Tribute. Should be interesting. Amanda Palmer is one of the singers. One of the few if not only singer who made me cry in a crowded Leftfield tent with her beautiful lyrics.

We are scientists were very good with a lot of energy this evening, but watch out for Catfish and the Bottlemen. I have had their album on my Spotify and did not think much of them, but live so much better and boy did they pull in and please the festival crowd. I do not think we will see them at Kendall Calling for a few years as these fellas are going to be big! Still not catching my full attention and not doing it for me, but they are for the masses. 

Talking of big Jason Manford did his stand up with the sides of the marquee rolled up as so many wanted to see his 30 minutes of stand up. Was quite funny, but could barely hear him over the main stage.

Today was a very good day in the fields with the sfcsim's. 

We saw the below. 

Maximo Park, who were delayed on their flight from Germany, so only had a 25 minute set, but we're still very good, but a shame really, that we did not get a full set. 

The Darkness, who 13 years ago, when they headlined Reading I could not stand them! But today I thought they were pretty good and entertaining. The lead singer was quite funny. I think they played the whole of their debut album. As the lead singer said 'well what can is the point of playing songs that none of you have heard! 

The Hives, were very good, very lively and very well dressed as ever. Really fun band and a great set. Never seen them in their own gig, only ever at festivals, but would like to. 

Madness - what a show as per normal, got the crowd going, very easy to jig around to, not having to really 'dance'. Make the whole set look really easy. Brilliant and such a good relaxed friendly crowd every time I see them, just fun! Like a big house of fun!

did you have to shit in a bin?

Right, that was the last day, just back from a great 4 days of music.

Band of Skulls - love them as they always say 'We are the band of skulls, from Southampton'. Also they are a good guitar band. 

Lightening Seeds - old classics, really good to just sit back and chill at a festival with. 

Noel Gallagher and his high flying birds - love his music really good to listen to, so, well Noel Gallagher. Always interacts with the crowd and jokes about. Also you get an oasis sing along during the gig as well.

Off to Beautiful Days today! James, Leftfield, The Coral, Reef, Billy Bragg, The Selecter, Toddla T and a load of loons rolling around in the mud.

Gonna miss the Pogba/Jose wankathon so keep the match thread up to date!

James, BB, Proclaimers and The Selecter should be cool.

I saw Seth Lakeman supporting Bill a few years back...

He wandered out with a fiddle so my heart sank, there were also far too many 'folk musicians' on the stage for my liking - but he was bloody brilliant.

Starting with Will Varley then the Damned . The Unthanks playing tonight toolou_lol .

Leftfield/Billy Bragg relay later on.

I am so jealous Goatster. 

Should have booked when you mentioned it earlier. 

Ask Will Varley if he remembers signing a drunken idiots Tommy Hilfiger shirt with a marker pen at The Joiners - shortly before same drunken bloke gave him an enveloping and excruciatingly long and awkward hug.

Well it was nice to 'meat' you.

One sphincter feels very much like another when I've been on the Punk IPA*.
