@ThroatOfIshmael Even my friend who likes them wanted to leave so I could see Balam Acab, haha. Floor were insane, the setlist was flawless too. I managed to meet Steve Brooks at the merch table beforehand and had a picture, spoke absolute shit to him too, bit of a fanboy, haha.
RIGHT. OH MY GOD. I just had a flashback from friday when some guy asked me if i was king buzzo's son because i dancing erratically and i have similar (ish) hair IF YOU READ THIS GET IN TOUCH I LOVE YOU XOX
Dirty Three, Thee Oh Sees, Mogwai, Sleepy Sun and Siskiyou were my highlights of the weekend. Don't want to start any controversy but the Afghan Whigs weren't all that. First song reminded me of U2... (Not that anyone has said anything about them for me to disagree with, I just needed to state an opinion apropos of nothing).
Highlights for me had to be Slayer, Sleep, Floor, Melvins and Mogwai. Am I the only person who thought Codeine were ridiculously boring?
@Belovodie The Soft Moon were pretty good, I'd never even heard of them before, but definitely checking out an album after their performance.
Codeine were completely overwhelming. I couldn't believe it. Certainly the band of the festival. Mudhoney were very close behind though - they were absolutely fierce. Mark Arm has his Iggy Pop moves down to a T.
Went to the friday, WITTR were awesome, other bands were fun. But the organisation of picking up tickets on the friday was terrible, they said it would be open from 2, but they failed to say that it would close from about 3:30 till 4:15, the time when any normal person who wanted to be early, would turn up. Trying to get tap water was fucking awful too.
Great night overall, missed ASOL, but caught the other 5 bands on Friday. Should have maybe got to the venue earlier to catch ASOL. Slayer were the highlight IMO, but loved all of the bands I saw. Good venue, Ally Pally, but took longer for me to get to than I thought. Getting into the venue was a bit of a lottery, so that's what caused me to miss ASOL. It was easy to get between the 2 halls. ANyone got a setlist for the 1st 3 bands?
