This is the gallery with some of my best pictures of the weekend, they were taken on my “new” camera which I literally picked up off the floor on the saturday night. It’s a 6mp Sony CyberShot camera and after a little soul searching I decided to keep it. I know I “should” have handed it in but let’s be serious here, who really would have handed it in? Come on, show of hands.
Well, anyway, I kept it and took a few nice pictures with it which are posted above. Unfortunately the unlucky people who lost the camera didn’t lose the charger so it’s now just sat on my desk waiting for me to buy a dock. Oh well
Unsuprisingly Muse were the highlight of the weekend but Franz suprised me, they were alot better than I expected and made up for the Arctic Monkeys let down. Arctic Monkey are just not good enough to be so far up the bill on the main stage and were poor, the music was ok but not much different from listening to the album. What let them down was the “show”, they just didn’t put one on. In my opinion there isn’t a huge difference between Kaiser Chiefs and Arctic Monkeys, both fairly poppy, both with nice catchy lyrics and good tunes. The main difference between the two is stage presence, Ricky of the Kaisers has it and Alex of the Monkeys doesn’t.
A band called Humanzi on the Carling Stage were excelent as were The Research, and on Friday Boy Kill Boy, Kooks, The Rakes and Maximo Park were all brilliant.
Looking forward to next year already.
