    The best thing about Wage against the Machine was that all the bogans were in the one arena together. Lucky Bjork missed that gig! Im sure she would have been bottled. I feel sorry for the other RATM fans that arent thugs having to witness that. Poor little homophobes were freaked out by The Arcade Fire and Silverchair. LCD Soundsystem were great as it was a meathead free zone!

    Like nicdogz, British India and The Arcade Fire were the stand-outs for me. Rage Against The Machine were no better than Silverchair, both were dull and uninspiring.

    Bridezilla were actually pretty good, it was awesome when The Nightwatchman and Anti-Flag played a cover of Beds Are Burning. Silverchair... lol the entire D mosh kept booing them off and chanting RAGE RAGE RAGE and FUCK OFF!!! every time David demanded that Sydney screamed for him. Rage wa

    battles was the stand out by so far its ridiculous, rage was probably the best to see, just because watching 50 000 people say fuck you at the same time is some powerful stuff, but seriously, battles were the best band of the day. far and away.

    Unkle was easily the highlight of my day... kinda dissapointing to see the lack of unkle love around here though

    anti-flag were fucking terrible, combining the left-wing ideological banter of the MC5 with the vocal harmonies of the Misfits does not make you a great band...

    Anti-Flag all the way man, so much fun. How hilarious was the Cut Off Your Hands frontman as well, he was all over the place...

    Anyone catch Bridezilla? Not terrible, but I reckon Blue King Brown would've been more fun.

    Speaking of wankers, anyone see Augie March? Quote: We'll play 'One Crowded Hour' as long as you don't fuck off straight away. Almost everyone did though! Hahaha

    And he was the one saying we should have a war against cynicism. Great musician, yet be kinder to fans who are waiting for other bands, I say.

    yeah battles were fucking awesome, especially after billy bragg! i think the thing that got to me the most after his HAVENT YOU EVER SEEN FOLK MUSIC BEFORE (wanker) comment was how he said that BDO was just a rip off copy of glastonbury. FUCK glastonbury! christ, you wouldn't say that about lollapalooza or splendour or falls! what a tosser. he really was just a miserable old git.
