Flowers were brilliant (and lovely) at Sleeping Today. Stole it for me. Will tag along for them and Big Wave.

And this is the FULL line up!

SoundsXP present their annual Good Friday music
festival at the legendary Brixton Windmill.
8 bands, DJs and a free BBQ.
All for just six pounds!

29 March 2013 - doors at 3pm
The Windmill, 22 Blenheim Gardens Brixton, London, Greater London SW2 5BZ
£6 advance from WeGotTickets / £7 on the door

New music webzine SoundsXP present eight of their favourite bands during one day and night at their favourite venue in London, The Brixton Windmill. It will also be the first BBQ show of the season and probably the first BBQ anywhere if it continues snowing!

There are two headliners this year, the first being influential ex-The Slits guitarist guitarist Viv Albertine, now an acclaimed solo artist having recently released debut album The Vermilion Border which featured guest appearances by Mick Jones, Tina Weymouth & Jack Bruce amongst others. The second headliners Vuvuvultures take a somewhat Gary Numan approach to punk; dark, synth-soaked and heavy but with a melodic pop backbone. They featured in numerous ‘Ones to Watch in 2013’ lists and their new single Stay Still has been grabbing all sorts of radio attention particularly with Steve Lamacq on his 6Music show.

It's what Mr Smith (aka Whiffy Smiffy) in Please Sir used to refer to as 'monosyllabic pop culture grunting' !
I've no idea what Neil means by it but he used exactly the same term to refer to something I posted in the classics thread a few weeks back.

I enjoyed the bit I was there for.... it was really good to see Simon Love back on stage.... and I really enjoyed Big Wave. No Cars are usually my kinda thing but they didn't grab me really, a shame, I think they said it was their last show.

Big Wave were great. Wasn't too keen on Left Leg.

I hope the rest of the day went well chaps.

And I have never eaten a burger lolly before. It was the coldest barbie I have ever been too :lol:

Their last show with their current bassist. Whether they can find another Japanese female bassist is to be seen...
