It’s nearly here so I may as well start planning my time there. Not that Glastonbury plans are ever stuck to but you need some kind of battle plan before venturing onto the fields of Worthy Farm.
Maximo Park are kicking off the festival by staging a 2,000 capacity limit gig in the Queens Head. Not sure I can be bothered with cramming in that tent so hopefully the promised screens will be up and a beer can help me take in their set. Following them, again in the Queen’s Head is We Have Band.
A couple of hours for a wander about the site, taking in the weird and wonderful means you can take in the Groove Diggerz in at the fantastical berlesque Pussy Parlure speigeltent. A quick skip across the way and you’re all set for a long haul at the Dance Lounge. The cheese/well you’ve just got to see it to believe it/will Brian get run over by his own car on stage factor means you cannot miss East 17. Raffertie‘s old skool rave meets dubstep, followed by Beardyman‘s supreme beatboxing, followed by the Unabombers and before you know it it’s 00:30. Which means surely it’s got to be time for the obligatory trip up the stone circle to oversee the City of Glastonbury before heading back to the Dance Lounge and finishing off with Altern-8. There’s something you simply cannot overlook. It’d be rude. Top One Nice One Get Sorted. Now, where did I put that face mask and hoody. 🙂
So I should really put my money where my mouth is and crack on with the MAME World Record attempts I mentioned in my earlier post…
First up is ’88 Games by Konami. It’s Konami’s third game in their button smashing series following Track and Field and Hyper Sports before it. A quick check of Twin Galaxies show that they have a record for each of the individual events. Now this might prove to be a problem as you can only move onto the next event once you’ve qualified for the preceding event. The events are as follows with the Twin Galaxies record against each;
At last, a new De La Soul longplayer is on the horizon according to a recent interview at EW.com. It’s been nearly 5 years since The Grind Date and ‘You’re Welcome’ and is slated to be released in early 2010. At this rate they’re rivalling the Beasties at time between albums.
Also popped up today on his Twitter is a new (old but reworked) Wale track. “Hot Shyt,” featuring Black Thought (of The Roots), Peedi Crakk, Young Chris, and Tuphace is as the kids say “a banger”. When I were a lad it were a crappy firework.
According to a recent Guardian article a US man has been fined for smoking a bong containing a cat. Yeah you read that correctly. It’s not April 1st either. Apparently he did it to calm the cat down and according to the man “Lots of people do this, I’m just the first to get caught'”. The cat was taken in two months ago from friends who had abused it. Oh the irony.
The cat has yet to comment. At the time of going to press it was out at KFC in preparation for a Star Wars and Lord of the Rings back to back marathon…
We all know Spotify. We all know Ninja Tune. So I’ve compiled a Spotify playlist containing the entire discography (of what is available on Spotify at least) chronologicly ordered. You can never get enough Mr Scruff, Coldcut, Hexstatic, Amon Tobin et al.
