PM Report – Metric, Fightstar and Soft Toy Emergency

So we have been busy busy busy. Weekend Vibe grabbed a few mins with Fightstar earlier. If everything is working OK IMG_0106there should be a little audio boo of this on the right of this post. The lads seemed a lovable rouge style characters (bless Charlie from Busted, we will never forget). I also conducted a interview with Jimmy from Metric (in the band and also does all the production) from Metric, (no audio boo from this, sorry, but you can look at this wonderful photo, and don’t people say a photo is worth a thousand words right?) You can also catch up with our full interview on the Festival round-up show on BCB next week. Metric played a blinding set with front woman Emily clearly following my lead by wearing sailor attire. Their set was very like being hit in the head by synth style icicles in a very exciting way.
Weekend vibe also took the lead and interviewed Soft Toy Emergency (I went to the loo). I have just gotten back from their set and I must say they are really one to watch. Undoubtedly the most exciting act I have stumbled across thus far. What do they sound like? Hmmm, think Foals, add a punky edge and you’re somewhere close.
The performance was stella – not just the front woman putting on a show but the whole band joining in the excitement of there sound. The crowd were also clearly very impressed with everyone joinning in with the ‘hotter nanny’. At one point they called to the crowd, “Is any one from Liverpool?” A massive cheer erupted. I glanced around nervously and checked for my wallet. Oh and I found 50 pence on the floor.
Gonna find White Lies now.

A World Without Rain

Well currently I am taking shelter in the press tent. After a rather windy night under the stars I awoke fresh faced to some lovely rain that’s clearly not gonna give up.

In the next few hours the arena opens up for all the real fun and games to begin. After chatting with a few punters here and there it seems that the world is awating The Prodigy; with one person suggesting that things may well get ‘well sweaty’.

We will also be chatting to Fightstar later on (aka Charlie from Busted lol). Also think we got some other bits and bobs lined up so keep watching (am going to be talking with Emily fron Metric). Of course you will only get to hear the full interviews in our review programme on BCB next week.

It’s all rather nice. Should have some real content later. Rest of the team is here now so will give you the Weekend Vibe team’s updates as well.

Live From The Leeds

So, it’s what 1.15 in the morning as I write this on the Thursday night at the Leeds festival. We had a spot of rain, nothing too harsh. As I am writing this from a mobile device from my tent I will keep the reviews breif – Blood Red Shoes – good. Wild Beasts – very good (that’s almost as good as you would expect from NME, my use of the word good was great I think)

I spent some time amongst the action in the camp sites and found some rather worrying scenes; more on that soon. The rest of the team are here tomorrow and we are doing some interviews so watch this space for some audio boo hopefuly. However, for now a choice quote from a group of lads.

“We all need to get thos hats like Dell Boy”

Goodnight and more fun tommrrow.


Leeds Festival Coverage Starts HERE!

To kick of the music blog we will be bringing you undoubtedly the most comprehensive Leeds festival coverage to be found anywhere. We have a temporary twitter stream running down the right of this blog. With any luck you will get a chance to see our audio boos uploaded right from the field. As well as fantastic videos of weekend vibe “cooking”, you heard it here first people.

Look back at the blog as well for daily photos and with any luck a morning and night blog entry (although i am bound to forget to check in once over the weekend). Its an absolute privilege to be going to the festival with the rest of the team this year. That’s all for now ta tar.
