  1. This is just the news I needed!! Dunno whether I can make Kent – but I will certainly give it a try 🙂 – don’t forget to play Bristol!!!!!

  2. Who the hell are Alex Gopher, Scratch Perverts, Fight Like Apes, Dananananakroyd, 65 Days of Static, Cage the Elephant, The Rifles, Ladyhawke and The Twang??? And, come to think about it, what makes the organisers of Hop Fest think that Mystery Jets and Super Furry Animals should be above THAT PETROL EMOTION on the bill? Editors and Doves you can kinda understand, but only cos our boys have been away for 15 years, for cryin out loud!! But, lookin on the bright side, at least we can watch the guys rippin it, have a couple of drinks, and then FOH long before the “Modfather” takes the stage (apologies Brendan, but Paul Weller’s solo stuff is utter shite!). Any chance of playing Spin Cycle, for this Petrolhead who will have driven all the way from gay Paris (come on Steve, you know u wanna do it!!)?

  3. …BTW Dananananakroyd and Cage the Elephant are the joint shitest band names I’ve ever heard!

  4. I don’t really think it matters where we are on the bill, we will be shit hot! what better way to start the day and yes, plenty of time after for a few shandies! there really is no need to apologise to me for PW, I’m not really a fan since the Jam, early style council, some stuff I have liked, Ray likes his last lp though, see you in July, B

  5. Good Work Kids! Looking forward to seeing yez soon. I met Keef in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago too !!!
