I feel a bit like Boy Meets World writing these blogs. I hear myself say them in the same way he narrates the show..the girl in that was really cute, I wonder what she looks like now?
Anyway we just finished playing at Southside Festival in Germany. Supposedly it had rained since Wednesday morning so the site was so covered in mud, cars getting dragged out of the car park by tractors and all! For a crowd to still have that much enthusiasm after being p*ssed on for 5 days, is quite something - the response was great!! We tried our Glastonbury set and it worked out well...so we've all got pretty excited for next weekend now!
I took it upon myself to go and see some bands today. Myself, and Jack and Charles from White Lies went to see Biffy Clyro, who absolutely killed it. They are using an extra guitarist (Mike from a great band called Oceansize) and they now sound bigger then ever. I don't think I have ever hear a chorus kick in like there's did today.
A band I had looked forward to the most this weekend was Deftones, so I went with the Biffy lot to see them. I even got to stand side stage! Didn't ever expect to see them from there in my life! Chino has lost so much weight and completely owned the stage..a hell of a sight to see, and very inspiring. I didn't think they actually would, but his screams COULD actually be loud enough to smash a window like in the "back to school" video...
I caught Marina and The Diamonds set too. Her confidence with the crowd gets better and better with every show I see! We had a good catch up too, it was very lovely to see her, as it'd been almost a year since a proper chat.
We're on the bus back to blighty now. A few of us are sat in the back lounge of the bus watching Team America, the rock n roll party life that we lead eh?
Tomorrow is a day off and MY NEW HOOVER ARRIVES!
