    I love Bowie. Glastonbury 2000 was an amazing gig - ending with I'm Afraid Of Americans. Class.

    Well I've given The XX a go and I'm not convinced I'm afraid. Nothing about them seems to grab me - it's almost like the album never gets going. It's not awful, just completely and utterly average - nothing new, different or original.

    I'll give it a few more listens, but right now I'd categorise them as 'hugely overrated'.

    Anyone who cannot appreciate Bowie for his contribution to Music is either tone deaf or just deaf !

    Tremendous band. And very popular. Here is my view when I tried to get near the John Peel Tent where they were playing at Glastonbury:



    Needless to say, it wasn't the best performance I saw all weekend, because I couldn't bloody hear them!!

    We just about managed to get inside the tent only to find quite a bit of space just in front of the sound deck. I think people some people take their camp chairs and just plonk themselves in there all day.

    It was fine inside the tent - it's just that once you're outside, you can't hear it so people push right up to the edge to see/hear. Not happening!!

    But yes - some stupid fucktard had a camping chair literally next to where one of those big yellow ropes was tethered, and refused to either stand up or fold it up. Wanker. Someone farted in his face and he soon moved. (Not me, I hasten to add - I was nowhere near there hence the photo, this is a story my mate told me afterwards).

    If I mentioned Yes, Sabbath, Magnum and Rush, you would all fall about laughing, but that is the music I still like.

    Not to mention Iron Maiden.

    so so imo.

    For NWW, this was the track that suburban war reminded me of, slightly slower, see what you think.

    Don't like either. I'm in a minority when it comes to the Shite Wipes, but I really can't stand them.

    Listened to Willy Mason earlier - not heard any of his stuff for ages - is he still around?!

    I respectfully disagree. A talented musician but his music is extremely drab.

    Heard the latest offering from The Ting Tings down the pub on Sat night and from what I can remember it was just the same lyrics constantly repeated for 3 minutes.

    I'd like to agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

    Anyway - I've managed to get tickets for Elbow at the NIA in March - I cannot WAIT to see them again. It's going to be an awesome night. I'd love Kloot to support them too!

    Different spelling, Frank - but 2 can play at that game.

    I thought Frank was the name of a dumb cop in the Naked Gun films......
