Everyone loves a bit of Crowded House

Unless they're claustrophobic.

Sounds like a perfect opportunity to debut my 97 minute snare drum only opera about the time David Dunn fell over attempting a rabona

97 minutes? It was against Villa, not manure.

Exciting times... Looks like they're allowing kids at the new site as well.


Although in all possibility they'll screw up the winter one, owe everyone hundreds of pounds which they'll blame on the fans/bands/venue and this will never happen

It used to be kids allowed at the minehead one too. We'll probably try and make the 2016 one, looks like all the two berth chalets have gone already

I read Sam Smith only took 20 minutes to write the new Bond theme. Having heard it, I wonder what he was doing for 19 of those minutes.

I just flew to the US via Reykjavik with Icelandic Air, and they had a documentary to watch about Sigur Ros called Heima. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heima

I've never really been a fan of Sigur Ros, more enjoying their music as I come across it. This documentary was ace though and put a lot of their music into context. This was a homecoming tour after a 2006 world tour. It was great to see them play their music with their countrymen and landscape around them.

While I think of it, has anyone seen "Dig!" ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dig!

This is a great music documentary, probably massively over dramatised but fascinating none the less.

Yeah, it's ridiculous isn't it? I've not seen it for years, but I seem to remember it makes both bands look like complete tossers. :lol:

Which is surprising cause it was done by the lead singer of the Warhols right?!
