T in the Park Review (Part 1) – The Happenings…….

T IN THE PARK: A WEEKEND THROUGH BROKEN SUNGLASSES

T in the Park, T in the P, Pee in the Dark, Sea in the Shark, Me in the Ark, i could go on………

Part 1 of the TitP review is pretty much going to be a list of things that made my weekend. There’s no point in me writing paragraphs of how each day went, which bands i seen etc. I’ll save the musical review of TitP for Parts 2 and 3 of the review.

so without further ado and in no specific order, here is my weekend in a nutshell…

warm cans of Tennents.
cold hot dogs.
flaming gallah!
innuendo jokes about loving The Big Pink (more on them later).
Vicki tearing her ligaments, sad times.
Aiobfans pyjama party in the Purple campsite.
amazing 4am banter.
asking directions in French (excusez-moi monsieur aimable, d’où soyez les toilettes propres ?).
leaky tents.
cosy sleeping bags.
broken sunglasses.
facepaints.
peeing in the dark.
fending off midgies (giant fucking midgies!).
strip poker.
bumpy bus rides.
water gun fights at 3am.
the strangest alcohol cocktails known to man.
playing East 17 on the Ipod docks.
friendly Geordies.
nine inch nipples (don’t ask!).
trying to get drunk on mouthwash.
gimp masks (sounds so wrong, i know)
using the disabled toilets (they were spotless!).
lion hats.
laughing at the clearly furious neds who found out The Game had cancelled his appearance.
helping random inverness girls to spew properly.
putting Aiobfan AND Morgan on my shoulders (yes, one on each!) during “Sit Down” by James, fucking agony and how fucking ironic a song!
drink driving on the Dodgems.
winning 20p on the horses.
getting soaked with what was hopefully beer during Crystal Castles.
the most random campsite playlists you could imagine (straight from S club 7 to Sepultura).
broken chairs.
Andy running into fences….. the fence won by the way.
shaking Seasick Steve’s hand and having him compliment my broken sunglasses.
t-shirt tans (everybody had one on the Sunday!).
poncho’s that are clearly NOT waterproof (they provoked memories of Radiohead at Glasgow Green last summer).
actually taking my tent home this time.
squashing EVERYONE into the car on the way home, i’m still grieving over that cars suspension.

here’s some pictures of the weekend, some are mine and some i’ve stole from friends…..

Dropkick The Faint

Another game to get your greasy little hands into….

http://www.dropkickthefaint.com/

Yet again this game is pretty self explanatory (just follow the instructions) and if you happen to be a fan of The Faint then you’ll enjoy the game and if you happen to hate The Faint then you’ll probably love this game.

Personally, i love The Faint but at the same time i also love dropkicking them off a stage and onto the pavement outside.

If they’re new to you have a listen and feel free to download….

MP3: The Faint – Dropkick the Punks

In B Flat

“We all love music. I believe that for people who love music, the desire to share it is innate and crucial for music itself. When we find a song we love, we beckon our friends over to the turntable, we loan them the CD, we turn up the car stereo, we put it on a mixtape. We do this because music makes us feel and we want someone else to feel it too.”

Sometimes it’s just about the music…..

Guitar Hero is like, totally, like sooooo last year…….duh

After years of getting numb fingers and pinky cramp playing Guitar Hero, i’ve discovered a new way of inflicting pain on my digits. I first found this game about 3 months ago and to be honest i thought it was pretty shit but i’ve persisted with it and i’m actually starting to enjoy it now. I don’t really think i have to explain much about it…..the name’s Keytar Hero. That tells you all you need to know.

What i would recommend though is that you DO NOT attempt this on a laptop unless you have a wireless keyboard because A) you’ll end up dropping your laptop when the “digit cramp” kicks in. B) you’ll strain your neck big time (you have to have either the keyboard or screen upside down) and C) you’ll look like an idiot if someone walks in on you mid-solo.keytar hero

AND make sure you read the instructions before playing the game!

And whist we’re on the topic of keyboard punching based games i might as well throw in an old classic………..

ZEBRA! ZEBRA! BUGGER! ZEBRA! BASTARD! ZEBRA! FUCKER!

I Would Fall Before I Let You Go

The new song on the way from Subdigital.

For full details and reasons behind the song have a look at…………  http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=466852994&blogId=498007940

Basically its our attempt at a summer anthem, we’ve written and (just about) recorded it in less than 3 days. I’ll post a 30 second sample of the demo version within the next week or so. And maybe some video footage of the recording.

Fall
Lyrics written by John McFadden
Music written by John McFadden and Chris Torrance

Vox- Aiobfan O’Hara
Bass & Lead Synth lines – John McFadden
Drums & Rhythm Synths – Chris Torrance

Right. I’m off to watch two strange guys dressed in white, grunting  annoyingly and uncontrollably whilst hitting a lemon around a tennis court for a bit. (ie. The Mens Singles Final @ Wimbledon)

ps. the BBC just used “Burn My Shadow” by UNKLE as the intro tune to the Wimbledon programme there! Tune!
