Boiled ... baked, Noisepod #4 (June 2015)

Thank god another year of that fuck-awful Glastonbury hypathon is done and dusted (crop-dusted). Ugh.

Next year, I imagine the BBC will finally stop sitting on the fence (farmer's five-bar gate) and really get behind this brave little musical festival, possibly devoting BBC2's entire output to it for four solid days, alongside a live blog on the BBC website and numerous "We interrupt this programme"-type bulletins across all major BBC platforms - which we'll obviously need if we're to be kept up to date with when a headline act has been seen coming out of their luxury caravan in their fabulous long-length sparkly-gold wellies ...

Er, yes. Anyway, in other news, which has been boiled and baked for your music satisfaction, here's Noisepod #4. Dedicated to the ghosts of the long-dead hippie counterculture ... [link now taken down; leave a comment for a re-up].

The torture of band t-shirts

Over in another place - a calmingly-decorated boudoir full of quietly glowing collectibles - I slip into something more comfortable. A band t-shirt. Blimey, it's torture ...

It's our norm (May 2015), Podcast #118

Evidently they're down to their last 500 tickets for Field Day, which kind of begs the question - how many do they actually cram into that godforsaken bit of east London? Poor Victoria Park.

Anyway, bearing in mind Edwyn Collins' spot-on dictum about the truly detestable summer festival, I l'll be giving this £103-per-person hype-fest a well-deserved wide berth.

And at the risk of jumping on the bash-the-hipster bandwagon - which I most decidedly do not want to do - I also think Frankie Boyle scores a few hits with his latest little tirade, not least the notion that bands playing at these bloated over-priced affairs are often just fulfilling a sort of do-the-festivals quota, doing what their managers recommend, chalking the big events up, then a headline slot at Koko, onwards, upwards ...

So yeah, Fuck Field Day! With it's ... "village mentality" (for GOD'S SAKE). No, instead, stay in, turn your puny, undersized computer speakers up, and listen to the latest Niluccio on noise podcast. Everyone who's sensibly followed this sound advice has been of the same opinion. After listening to it, they all say ... it's our norm. [Link now taken down; leave a comment for a re-up].
