Music Resolution 2009 – Reading Festival

Join me and my New Year’s Resolution to go to at least one gig every month of 2009.
Reading Festival

In haiku format

(Wondering if I
Can keep this haiku mode up –
I very much can)

The Temper Trap

Average indie pop
Singer’s voice a class above
Enjoyable outcome

KASMS

Angry thrashing noise
Coming from petite females
With drumming boys too

Fight Like Apes

Wave poles and keyboards
MayKay – rock goddess onstage
Pure punk energy

Everything Everything

Epic majestic
Bad luck – we miss half the set
What we heard was great

Faith No More

Play much classic metal
Interrupt hits to surprise with
Eastenders theme tune

Metric

New album perfect
For big stage at festival
Emily so bright

Patrick Wolf

Dressed in gimp outfit
Scaling stage and crowd surfing
Scene made, drunken Wolf

Them Crooked Vultures

Unannounced rock show
Heavy groove conquers whole crowd
John Paul Jones triumphs

Soft Toy Emergency

Eighteen months we find
This band supports all we see
Finally they shine

65daysofstatic

Epic post-rock sound
Balance guitar on chin so
Whole crowd impressed

Prodigy

Weekend’s biggest crowd
Lairy as you would assume
Reflecting the band

Glasvegas

When they play songs which
I have heard on radio
Twas surprise good time

The xx

Your dark and moody
Sounds of the urban decay
Still work in large tent

Frank Turner

Billy Bragg 09?
Perhaps but your voice still seems
Your own in humour

Metronomy

Live drummer add on
More power to your toy synths
Geeks inherit earth


From http://www.bbc.co.uk/readingandleeds/2009/photos/

Brand New

Inclement weather
Wind steals your sound although
Could have played big hits

Crystal Castles

Oh Alice, you scream
Unintelligible lyrics
As synth dies loudly

Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Colour explosion
Sonic explosion follows
Under all-seeing eye

Bloc Party

Live so erratic
This time lively and tuneful
Old stuff still the best

Radiohead

To start with shock ‘Creep’
Follow with anthems and more
Perfect headliner
