@homsar_rb i dunno about nada surf, but with Death Cab, when his guitar is meant to come in all loud etc in Bixby Canyon Bridge it didnt and he got really angry and started complaining. It turned out his volume on his guitar was turned down (realised 2/3 of the way through the track) - i spotted him fiddle with it then all the sound come back. He looked pretty embarassed.
Broken Records and Slow Club were good, Johnny Foreigner as fantastic as ever, The Wave Pictures good (deserved a bigger crowd), Elbow and Sigur Rós perfect on Saturday and Robin Ince's Book Club was great all weekend. Oh, and not forgetting The Early Edition (Hoonwatch!) and John Hegley too. Great weekend.
Stewart Lee was genius - but I already knew that! To get half an hour of comedy material from a record he had never listened to was astounding.
Also loved Joanna Newsome, Lucy Porter, Lee Mack, Grinderman, the pimms bus, pink sheep, the light show buddah, dancing like a maniac in wellies at guilty pleasures... i could go on
Not keen on tents, festival toilets, not being able to have a bath and unpredictable rain....
Probably unpopular thoughts on this year's Latitude:
Remember: I'm not saying I don't love you all dearly ;-)
