It went up it's own arse just like Record Store Day has done.

The first Camden Crawl had the Wedding Present headlining at Dingwalls and I think it was the first time they had played in London since "reforming". There were a lot of walking frames in the mosh pit that night!!!

From what I've read none of the bands that played this year got paid. Which is the real sad part of this. CC was pretty flawed idea and all that, but bands being short changed is a shitty way to go out.

Read that too. Shitty way to go out as you say Trev.
