TITP looks dreadful this year

The Sun ran this picture. It is either the Stone Roses or exhumed corpses

Last year I went to TITP and it was one of the best experiences of my life, Foo Fighters, Pulp, Tom Jones and Slash just done it for me, (in that order) mixed with the death of the News of the World and the revelation that my bladder can hold for three days, it was overall a standalone experience that I wanted to emulate this year…

Read about it here.

BUT, I can’t help but be disappointed with the line up so far. The supposed headliners are Snow Patrol, Stone Roses and Kasabian with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Florence and the Machine and Elbow also appearing.

Snow Patrol is a band that hasn’t made a favorable noise in half a decade ever since the monotonous (but catchy) Chasing Cars first encouraged James Blunt fans to join cults and sacrifice their ears, the Stone Roses haven’t even so much as spoke to each other for nearly two decades, they look so old that I doubt their eyes still work, (John Squire spends his time painting) and Kasabian well they are OK, but just OK, topically, I do not ever want to be in the center of a drunken crowd singing the riff to Fire or Club Foot.

AND, Is it just me or does Calvin Harris play TITP every year? Does he just burrow into the ground at the end of each festival and chew larvae until he can hear people stamping above him? Tiny Tempah also features although I would rather just forget about him promptly, as, instead, he should be busking in a Tesco car park. Florence and the Machine also appear, I just wish I got them, it’s ok, sometimes, just not what I would listen to, maybe that will change though.

Back when the stones were young and... handsome?

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are admittedly quite good and the only “new” life in the line up on first inspection. Amusingly Noel Gallagher has refused to play at the same time as the Stone Roses so he can watch his idols in action. So perhaps there is “still life” (painting pun) in the wrinkly old stones who for some reason I can only envision as teenage mop tops.

DO NOT DESPAIR THOUGH.

The Darkness will be there, I already sing Believe in a Thing Called Love and Love is Only a Feeling when I am drunk and in the shower, respectively, I may as well sing these at TITP when I am both drunk and a shower of sleet, rain and beer at the main stage.
