Doesnt matter what day it is. Coverage of it always seems so underwhelming, especially when considered against the hype that it generates.

I sat and watched about 5 minutes of Jeff Lynne's ELO. Dear God, thousands of people standing there as if the end was nigh. It looked and felt awful.

i agree with that. Although it seemed pretty insipid music as well.

Is it just the TV coverage or does it look like the audience are not enjoying themselves?

Every year I catch snippets of the festival on the BBC and when they pan to the audience it always looks like a bunch of people standing around chatting to each other. Not 'aving it, not dancing, not singing along. I'm talking about the main acts obviously.

if you've ben on it for 4 days, with virtually no sleep, how much fun can you have???

The spread is now 54.5-55.5

The result is no longer in doubt. The issue will be the margin

Lol...........oops

Benson is to politics is what smallls is to footy

If I'd hedged that with 8/1 for leave I'd be fucking laughing. Until I realised to the money was worth 20% less in Europe.

I'm pretty sure I'm alright with counting.

The betting markets are offering 7/1 on brexit. In a 2 horse race that means it's not happening!

The spread (i.e. predicted result) is well into remain territory.

And that Mess With the Bull track would just fucking blow your head off in a club. In terms of any cd mix I'd wish to witness live in a club environment it would be this. Hands down.


delta lady as the last track at a bedrock in brighton was pretty special.

I remember going into eastern bloc in 1992 and Dermot serving me up some fresh acetates. Man that guy has sick taste in music!

That's kind of turned me on a bit

As far as I am aware it was fentanyl

Remember going to the launch party for the satishiie NuBreed at plastic people

I remember little of what happened there.

My apologies if I had misspoke, or overstated with my reply.

It wasn't. I'd been uneasy from fairly early on.

It's a horrific fucking tragedy. The music we all love has incredibly strong roots in gay clubbing from the 70's and 80's. John himself has a strong association with Heaven, both with bedrock and before that.

A good family friend has very strong associations with Stonewall and has given a passionate speech about what happened.

Can you imagine what it must have been like in there? Out for a night out and 50 people dead. Absolutely fucking horrific.

The gun control chat is relevant. Large parts of the rest was not

Maybe rebooting the thread will keep the tone a bit better.

The best places to see Steve Lawler were on the old Space terrace and The End.

The end was the business back then. Killahurtz, harlem nights, dig deeper.

Quite liked the tribal sound he was putting out.

I have never spoken to him so cannot offer an opinion on whether he is a nice chap

This explains him walking on to a track with lyrics shouting "Morillo is in da house" 2 hours late about 10 years ago in Pacha.

Did the tour of cambridgeshire yesterday. Great road race on closed roads. Had to stop at 110km as there was an unconcious rider on the road.


Still did the whole thing (128km) with a moving time of 3:53 which is 5 mins slower than last year. I'm blaming the wind.And the fact that I did blenheim tri the day before,

The one who took a roophy before meeting me for bodeans in the afternoon in South London.

She was obviously spannered on something, and me trying to get her to get into my car to take her home was attracting all sorts of the wrong attention.

She then proceeded to bombard me with about 50 texts.

I never saw her again

It wasn't. I would say it ranks as one of the weirder evenings I have spent in south london.
