Few other good bands on the line-up - Wedding Present, Holy Mountain, James Murphy.

Really want to go to this - 70 bucks plus booking fee a bit steep though.

£40 for a day ticket and £70 is for two days isn't bad. I think I might miss this one though.

New Adam, haven't seen any mention of this:

https://open.spotify.com/track/63YifTnFKy8SHe074kDudu

Sorry, I can't find a youtube link for non Spotify users.

From the soundtrack to German movie "Freistatt".

Could somebody post the story about that? I read about that clown, Pete on wiki today. Waste product and the band is lame. Drugs are supposed to fuel musicians, not make them Aholes!

Mike it's on Adams fb page so you'd have to friend request I suppose. Not really a story so much as just some commentary. Truly a monument to what a "twunt" that guy is dozens of folks offering pints up for it. Haha.

I doubt you'll read anything funnier all week.

Having been on the receiving end of Adam's fists, I am in a position to confirm that he can be a bit tasty.

Excellent. That csidman pedal seems interesting for sure. I'd been wondering if any of the catalinbread stuff was actually going to make his pedalboard when I saw the Facebook post. I'd love to hear what he's come up with using the echorec... lovely pedal.

Did anyone else order one of these? Mine arrived yesterday. The packaging seems like good quality but I haven't played the record yet so I can't comment on that.

The record itself is quite a strange colour and mine has a gold number embossed on the back (I'm assuming the first 1500 all have this).

Anyway, its nice to have a backup copy of this as the Creation pressing is worth a pretty penny now and I didn't buy the Second Motion reissue.

I was just putting up a tab and ended up noticing a new band camp release:

https://adamfranklin.bandcamp.com/album/the-gambier-bay
The Gambier Bay
1. Send Salutations to the World 03:37
2. Sea Creatures Beneath Us 03:56
3. The Lizard 03:38

Also I finally did away with the 2 suggestions subforums. They were quite spammy. Thanks for keeping the guestbook clean fellas.

Kind of a surprising rank. I really thought Mezcal Head would've placed higher...
