my sister just posted this on fb. I had been for the full weekend in 95 and 96 but only went for the Sunday to see The Verve in 97. The line up (and order) is such a dogs dinner. In amongst it though, are some great bands.

has it been long enough since we've had some good ol' arguments about brand new?

 

the devil and god:

sowing season

jesus christ

luca

the archers bows have broken

degausser

not the sun

you won't know

limousine 

millstone

welcome to bangkok

that untitled one

handcuffs

 

potentially hot take - the album would be way tighter if they cut those bottom two and ended it on archers. would make for a really weird closer but it's not like it doesn't fuck up the pacing stuck where it is already. I like the idea of having a slow and heavy record with a weird burst of energy at the end but as it is the album is juuuuust too long to really make that work as effectively as it could imo

good to know that if I need attention all I have to do is die

tautou

sic transit gloria...glory fades

play crack the sky

okay I believe you but my tommy gun don't

the boy who blocked his own shot

I will play my game beneath the spin light

gonna bump these two insanely solid posts with all the brand new bantz happening lately

A month later the Verve would have been headlining the main stage on Saturday.

 

I am so fucking jealous of you for seeing them in the 90s. Did you catch the reunion?

Yeah i was lucky, the Reading show was my second in two weeks after seeing their Hammersmith Palais gig on the 14th and I saw them again at Brixton Academy in February 2008. The Hammersmith show was the one, it had sold out before Bittersweet Symphony had gone supernova and was wall to wall uberfans all just grateful the band had reformed. I think the whole show is on Youtube but it can't convey the atmosphere which was triumphant and euphoric.

 

I would have seen them in 1995 too if I hadn't been grounded for sneaking up to London to see Radiohead!

 

I don't know why but I didn't even think to check out the Forth reunion shows. Probably already had my fill of Ashcroft by that point.

HA! So different in the States.

You see, while 3 Colours Red was a featured act on the main stage at Reading, when they came to Chicago, they played a small club—Lounge Ax—and the opening act was... ME!!! Solo/acoustic!

D'OH!!!

Well, I never understood the 3 Colours Red thing. In the late 90s Alan McGee was the 'Emperor' and any number of bands names that fell from his lips were his 'new clothes'. He signed and repped some utter dross post Oasis. Creation went belly up no doubt because of his hubris.

 

But that line up... the topsy turvy nature of it boggles my mind a little.

Anyway, I googled the line-ups for the previous two years... 95 was my first full weekend festival. And 96, well I had so much fun the previous year...

Quite a few acts I wish I had seen, quite a few I wish I had dodged.

dr strangelove 

clockwork orange

only care about eyes wide shut & 2001 tbh. not in a big rush to watch the others. 

I wouldn't have seen barry lyndon or clockwork orange if they hadn't been screening them at the theater here, dunno if barry lyndon is one that I would set aside an evening to watch all 4 hours of again but it's well worth seeing for sure if you have a chance, even for the visuals alone
