Musical taste is a matter of opinion.

I'm personally not a fan of "Syndrome" of a Down or Slipknot, except the odd song.

Indeed. Back from the dead is my favourite song in the whole world ever.

The coral are spot on live aswell. Only seen Doherty solo and The Libertines live, never babyshambles as a band... so would be nice, but moving to camden in a few months (uni) so should have plenty of oppurtunity then!

I went to homelands last year in winchester. Was good but ive always preferred creamfields, prolly cos of the scouse element and being a huge lover of the old cream :) Youd like the Matthew St festival Aoami.

A weekend listening to dance music would make me slit my wrists.

homelands has the added benefit of being 15 minutes down the road however!

Marc, i looked at this Matthew st thing, and it seems only to be full of Tribute acts?

Are there the unsigned bands in the clubs etc?

It looks tempting though as the bank holiday monday is my 18th!

Muse = Best Live Act Ever In The History of the World Ever*


* May not be 100% true. But it is about 95% true. Nay, 96%.

Heh, well I wouldn't go that far. I wouldn't wish drug addiction on anyone and I hope he gets his life together. I just don't see why people see him as some sort of genius thats all....
