Wow... you didn't see a single band I'd have gone to see.

The camp site looks so orderly from the aerial photo.

Except Andrew WK who's music might not be the best but it's impossible to listen to without a smile spreading across your face.

They enforce the fire truck routes on pain of death or cold shower.

They do at Reading but they are a lot, lot further apart than that.

What bands (http://www.roskilde-festival.dk/bands/tid_alle_2002.php4?form_lang=UK) would you have gone to see?

There are lots and lots of squares (http://www.roskilde-festival.dk/2001/faqinfo/map.php4?form_lang=UK). The festival is about 1.5x the size of Reading, after all...

At least these:

Andrew WK, Rammstein and Chemical brothers (what I could of each one, seen Chemicals before so would have watched all of Rammstein)
Slayer
Alec Empire
Chillies (always good live)
Infinite Mass (no idea who they are but a cool name)
Anti Pop Consortium (no idea who they are but a cool name)
Primal Scream (nothing on at the same time as them and they have a couple of really good songs just sat a long way back and had something to eat when they played at Reading)
Millencolin (Not heard them but they sound interesting)
Vex Red
And You Will Know us By the Trail of Dead (I've missed them at 2 Readings now)
Cooper Temple Clause
The Icarus Line

and

Travis... NOT!!!

Yeah, but each square is small. :D

Massive respect for using the word ‘semiseminal’. I had something else to say but I forgot by the time I’d finished the article.

I had something to say but then I got distracted by the tents. And it was just responding to his clearly labeled trolls anyway.

The third troll I put in purely to continue the running gag.

That was the best one I think.

It's slightly annoying that new articles are barely noticeable in the first screenful. Anyone for posting a news item with future articles?

"I decide to thong myself through the crowd watching Red Hot Chilli Peppers next. "

I had no idea you took visible panty line so seriously.

I am not sure if you can actually throng yourself, but then I don’t like the verb to throng.

I daresay the BRMC sounding like Oasis is something to do with why they'm supporting Oasis on't current tour.
I think they one of the gallaghers has somethnig to do with somethnig about them.

I remember one of them heavily publicising the band last autumn. Of course, by then I'd had the CD for a good three months.

Well I don't think there was much on there I really want to see, or for that matter at Glastonbury either. There were some decent groups on at Leeds Reading but I am too skint to be able to afford to go. The one I would like to go to is the Warped tour in the US :cool:
