Not a vintage year (worst festival weather ever and bizarre security measures) but here are some of the good and not-so-good bits. Review may follow...

Highs (though we missed TFC)

Hard Skin
Thee Oh Sees
Ezra Furman
Meilyr Jones (don't believe the Guardian review)
Eleanor Friedberger
Savages - great stage presence now (don't believe the Guardian review)
Broken Social Scene
Cat's Eyes
Thurston Moore Group
US Girls (a performance!)
Leaf Library


Animal Collective (turn up, plug in, bore everyone)
Money (the album cover is our wishful thinking)
Flamingods (where to begin...)
some of Cat Powers' cover versions
Devendra Banhart (Oh John Inman. So much to answer for.)
the Saturday rain

Shepherd's Ice Cream (chocolate/ tayberry) - wowser.

Alas, not actually Gryff Rhys Jones...

"Little Jack Horner sitting on the corner
With no shoes and clothes
This aint funny, but he took his money
And sniffed it up his nose"
