Maybe Aoki could sue Wundergroundmusic for claiming to a satirical / comedy website.  He'd probably win that one.

I'm going, probably not make the pre-party though.

I do need to recover from the weekend I've just had, I feel terrible today.

Hope you grandad is okay too.

Went to Carcassonne this weekend for De La City - a brilliant weekend.

A Love From Outer Space was a bit more miss than hit on the Friday which was a shame, but Weatherall was spectacular on the Saturday night - haven't heard that Holmes mix Smoke Belch played out for ages.  Epic.

Great place to piss around in for a festival too.  Feel fucking terrible.

The original Madstock was absolutely horrendous.

The lunatics responding to that, fucking hell!

Great band Strudders, head over to YouTube.

I always forget about Mercury Rev, love them, but fucking hell they are shit live.  Almost as bad as Sparklehorse in that sense.

I love Radionasty's "Radio 1"

How was the hot chocolate Grant?

I didn't try it Ed, it took me a while to get over your mob not serving alcohol at half-time.  The Bovril gave me quite bad acid indigestion.

Or maybe is was the football we played that gave me the indigestion?

Big fan of golf and especially the Ryder Cup.  I'm in Carcassonne this weekend for a De La City and Andy Weatherall so will probably miss the lot

What now, Grant? Drones are part of a conspiracy theory you can't grasp also, is it?

Get a grip of yourself, it's not even remotely aimed at you. Unless you want it to be?

I can't work out if you're incredibly thick or really poor at being snide, it was I who mentioned the word drone when replying to Rossi so pardon me for the question.. hmm

It's neither. You were referring to reconaissance drones, I was talking about #teamtruth merchants and their use of drones in describing the general public often duped by western media channels. Like is said, it's not aimed at you.

After taking some stick about being shit and knowing we are, the Bolton response after equalising was 'we lose every week, we lose every week, how shit must you be? We lose every week'

Funny.

To be fair, we are shit, especially tonight.

Did someone say 'drone'?

I know.

Six Feet Under was superb, the birthplace of quality TV

Where do Bodie and Doyle fit into this web of misery?

Syro's excellent - a couple of the tracks are hard to listen to, but worth it for the rest.

Is it because you think I'm comparing the 2 actors? I'm not, I'm simply saying you haven't seen Vaughn in TD yet so wait until you see him before making a judgement..

DeNiro has done a couple of decent comedy roles, the rest are a cringe-fest.  If Vaughn has this in his locker, surely he'd have done it successfully before?  Of course, you're right, I'll need to see it, but I have serious reservations about it

re: TD 1 - would it have been as good if Matthew McConaughey hadn't just done the Dallas Buyers Club?

Yes, why wouldn't it be?

Don't ever change ETC, fucking hell, LOL!

in no particular order, these gigs were fucking incredible, all had an energy I've not seen in love bands for such a long time:
Oasis, London Astoria 1994
Manic Street Preachers, Town & Country Club 1992
Morrissey, Hammersmith Apollo 1991
Suede, Brixton Academy 1992
New Order, Reading 1998 (Fatboy Slim was brilliant in the Big Beat Boutique era)

Also so Carter USM at Chelmsford Y Club in 1989 - the in the same category as the ones above, but a stand-out early gig - I thought it was mental at the time.
