I have a fair amount of music in my library, and because I’m a massive nerd I like to keep it in some sort of order. (My pre-iTunes library has some 20,000 tracks, half of which are utter garbage. I’m slowly moving over the good stuff.)

Yesterday was Crooked Ways festival at Pontefract racecourse — and what a great festival it was! Plenty of music, plenty of beer, and plenty of sun!

Just recovered, so thought I’d post some ramblings for this year. Various high points were: Colin; gin jam; Jacob and Alf shopping for nothing but sweets; the wind and its army of shopping bags; back on form with brie and crackers; staying at the main stage missing plenty of good bands; acting like we were 16 again; when gazebos attack; a night of rum leading to much destruction; that man’s dressed all in red; wrestling ring during Limp Bizkit; breaking glasses again; general debauchery and merriment. Roll on next year!

I’m still tired even a whole day after getting back, but I though it was worth it to mention how good the festival was, yet again!

Strangely, a ska-core version of “Don’t Let Me Get Me” (originally by P!nk) and a punk version of “Just A Little While” (Janet Jackson) seem to me like they wouldn’t sound half bad? Maybe that’s just me then.

Last night we went over to Newcastle University Union to see The Automatic, supported by Mumm-Ra and Alterkicks. Liverpool-based band Alterkicks played an indie-ish (but not retro, oh no not retro) set to begin with, followed by Sussex boys Mumm-Ra and their eclectic pop/alternative rock mix. Having missed them at Leeds this year (due to sleeping in) I was glad to see them!

I think I’ve now managed to work out whom I saw at the festival now:
