A FANTASY FESTIVAL
It’s coming up for Festival season. A time when all ‘music lovers’ and weekend rebels pay an extortionate amount of money to camp in a field and watch their favourite bands, while eating and drinking overpriced cold food and warm beer.
This year I’ve decided to hold my own festival, happening in a field in my mind somewhere, sometime in the summer. The line up at the time of writing is:
SOCIAL DISTORTION PRIMAL SCREAM MANIC STREET PREACHERS THE ALARM THE BARRACUDAS SCREAMING BLUE MESSIAHS THE REDSKINS COCK SPARRER PETE DOHERTY S*M*A*S*H THE OUTCASTS THE MOB NIGHT OF TREASON BERMONDSEY JOYRIDERS ELECRTIC RIVER DEAD 60’S ROSCOE VACANT T.V SMITH THE ONLY ONES WAYNE KRAMER ALTERNATIVE TV UK SUBS KNOX AND THE TRAILER TRASH ORCHESTRA URBAN DOGS THESE ANIMAL MEN SCUM OF TOYTOWN CARBON SILICON THE DeRELLAS COLORYDE ARMIES OF ANGER MICK FARREN THE ASTRONAUTS DAVE KUSWORTH 20 FLIGHT ROCKERS JOHN SINCLAIR THE OTHERS THE YA LA LAS ZOUNDS THEATRE OF HATE 25TH MAY CHELSEA LOU REED IGGY POP MERCENARY SKANK THE GUNSLINGERS
There are a few reformations in the line up. I don’t usualy do reformations, but as it’s a festival. Sadly there are no resurections, so no Johnny Thunders, Joe Strummer or Nikki Sudden, but on the subject of resurrections, it’ll be the only festival the Stone Roses aren’t playing this summer!
