Just back from another brilliant Glasto.

Highlights : Killers, Foos, Dropkick Murphys, Napalm Death, Moonlandingz, Sleaford Mods, Flaming Lips and, surprisingly, Elbow

Disappointing : LG, Rag n Bone Man, Boy Better Know

Spent a pleasant hour in the Earache Express at 2am getting shouted at by the (Feminist) Petrol Girls.  Wanted to get back for Heck and Ho9909 but didnt manage it.   (think there was also Wormrot and Hacktivist among others)  The tube train is a fantastic addition to what is already an edgy corner of the festival.

Roll on 2019

Coalition of chaos too - glad that didn't get forgotten!

Not a prayer....

No, I don't think so either - his preparation hasn't gone well has it with his early exit from Queens. I sense a shock early exit.

But on to the coverage:

Just watched the piece on the extreme metal stage. Is there anything much more annoying than people who don't understand metal music talking about it, screaming, and constantly throwing the horns?

Katy Perry - I can forgive the horribly weak, whiny and constantly pitchy vocals (she's not up there for her voice after all), but what I fail to understand is how someone gets away with pop songs of such poor, plasticky quality.  Not even sexy anymore - looks like a chav who's been thrown into a pool of glitter.
Sorry Matt but we can't be friends any more ;)


Of all the plasticky pop artists out there she's probably the best. That's not saying much I know, but at least she has some creative input into her songs unlike say Rihanna or Beyonce who just have their songs handed to them on a plate. The Teenage Dream album is a modern pop classic! Unfortunately I have to agree with you re: the chav bit, that haircut just doesn't work, but before she got a little too liberal with the clippers she was arguably the most beautiful woman on the planet*


*how obvious is my long-term crush on this woman?

Extract  from Panorama (?) documentary from 1984 suggesting the cladding wasn't safe from a  fire safety perspective, sounds like a building regs cover up or similar for a long time over numerous governments tbh?
