So this one we're gonna do it a little differently, let's start with the best thing of yesterday.
Here's Bloc Party doing 'Banquet' and have a listen to the crowd go NUTS
Alright, I'm a fan and I may have been the one that yelled out 'Syyyydddnnnneeeeyyyyy'
Now to the rest of the day, after we whinged and moaned about the rain and mud yesterday, today was just awesome. This is the view from our front yard... oh the perils of modern life...
Such a beautiful day. Oops... how that one get in there...
Not a cloud in the sky, nice and warm and we had a few interviews yesterday, you know, Miike Snow, Tame Impala and Ball Park Music.
Do you reckon Miike Snow were influenced by ABBA?
What about why the music scene in Brisbane is flourishing answered by Sam and Dean from Ball Park Music?
How about why Tame Impala would rather people hear an album version of their songs before showing them live
What about a bit of a Lana Del Rey? We had to go there and I don't think the G W Mclennan tent has EVER been that packed. It was seriously busy in there and with LDR dressed in what can only be described as the wedding dress that the bride in the 'November Rain' video, she had the crowd in the palm of her hand. It had all the usual elements we thought there would be, singing in a whispery tone, no arm movement but it was still very good. Check this vid out of 'Video Games'
