Some pretty good bands on that thing. If I could drive I'd consider fleeing this bastard city to come. If Kill Yourself reformed to play, I'd walk it. Well, bus it.

I would recommend reading the line up closely, especially the "That Fucking Tank plus special guests" part and fill in the gaps...

Hmm. I assumed that just meant Giles was going to do vocals again for a bit. Interesting.

I'd love to be there today, and I would have gone if I was currently laying on my back with a trapped nerve in my spine paralysing my movements and causing me mental amounts of pain. I need a new career.
Here comes another load of joy

That was amazing. Three days next time please, perhaps with a day off in the middle. I think I peaked too soon. Polaris stole the show for me, and it was crazy good to see the Unit Ama and Kill Yourself again! Thanks all!

Nice to meet you Jon! Sorry I was drinky by the time we actually met.

This was a really, really great show. Every band was top draw. I can't even pick a top five. The whole thing was just terrific. I can't wait for the 20th Birthday now! Thanks especially to Matt Gringo and honeyisfunny - plus the innumerable non-PRF folks who were very friendly and hospitable.

I almost burst into tears about an hour ago because I couldn't get to grips with Outlook 2010. Someone installed it on my computer while I was away. To compound things they've set me up as 'Jonny Goodwin'.

Soooo I'm visiting the US next week. If any North American based characters with impeccable taste in music have a Gringo shaped whole in their life, I might be able to bring some records over with me and save you extortionate overseas shipping prices. Our wares can be found at http://gringorecords.limitedrun.com/

May I recommend Vision Fortune in particular, just back from the pressing plant.

I saw I'm Being Good at TSTX this past weekend and I think they should be renamed I'm Being Completely Fucking Holy Shit Bonkers. I recommend all and everything by them, for starters.

I wholeheartedly endorse this- and need to get on the ball w/ ordering some long overdue stuff. Also hope there is still a shirt to be had, as mine was destroyed on tour.
