Re: Personal opinions on VIP

As above. I've paid less than £100 for full festivals with decent bars, toilets, ability to park next to your tent (and that's before we get to line-ups). Never-mind a bloody 'upgrade' on a £135 ticket. Anyone considering VIP would be better off using the money to go to a festival in mainland Europe.

While true, the two times I've seen them (including Beermageddon) they haven't played any songs that pre-dated 2010. Quite strange really.

Re: BLOODSTOCK REVEAL TEN MORE BANDS PLUS MORE CLUB NIGHTS

Joining the Sophie Lancaster Stage line-up on Friday are MESSIAH’S KISS (https://www.facebook.com/MessiahsKiss), featuring former session musicians for Tony Iommi and Saxon. That's an insult of a blurb, former session musician for Saxon? The bassist played a couple of shows as stand-in bassist. I c...

Re: Vickie on the Jasta Show

Not particularly worrying. It's common knowledge that she has basically no clue about decent music and is slowly killing a once great British metal institution. It really would be better to abandon ship, I see so many people complain about the line-up all year and still fork out the money to go. If ...

Actually on topic: I forgot that I had holiday left over from last financial year, so I now have 3 full weeks spare to take off rather than the 1 I thought I had. :D

Yeah that was Metal Assault back in February, Crystal Logic with Rick Fisher on drums too. It was fantastic, properly fantastic.

Makes a bit more sense now. He must have more money than sense, the place is tiny, can't see how he could possibly turn a profit on this one in such a weird location.

announcing onslaught/exumer and master the same night as speedwolf too, the scene isnt big enough for stuff like this. Are you fucking kidding me!? Fucking fuck. Hadn't seen any dates for that Onslaught thing. Edit: Just googled it. Do the owners of the Blythe & Tyne just fucking hate you guys ...

Oh fuck that reminds me, I'm think there were 3 people other than my party who went to see Stevey G's Grim Reaper at the Hark 2 Towler in Bury in 2009. I really hope this London gig is considerably better attended than both of the above.
