In no particular order (apart from the 1st one)

1. Best Festival Shit EVER. Disabled portabog @Sonica. It was spacious and during the night, so it didn't feel like I was crammed into a giant crap steamer; and it was clean, and there was paper!!

2. Spending half an hour explaining to a big name DJ that K was an infinitely more classy drug than coke, the conversation ended with him having a line. I found out afterwards he was completely spannered for hours afterwards (@Sonica)

3. Hearing Beastie Boys "Fight for your Right" and Rage Against the Machine "Fuck You" played back to back at the breaksday tent @Glade. Not psychedelic, but proper farken 'avin' it!

4. Sitting, heavily under hoffman's influence, on top of an aircraft hanger at an ex-soviet airforce watching a couple of thousand crusties going nuts to the german version of Faithless. Germans. Germany. Acid. Need I say more. (@Fusion)

5. Watching Nick Tripswitch's face, whilst he was setting up for his set, as Damion rinses out a succession of "classics" and wrong music, culminating in Bryan Adams "Run To You". (@Sonica)

6. Watching the undignified scramble for the last 3 grams of K available at the festival (B.Right.On camp @Sonica)

7. A certain collective's madman punch @Glade. The foulest thing my tastebuds have ever had the displeasure to meet; but boy, did it make me fly.

8. Sketchy Steve & Red Five hold court. Saturday afternoon @Glade. The forum's two most bitter & twisted cynics meet head to head. Very, very funny, and far more wrong, on many levels.

9. Me n Aurora playing for over 1000 madferrit germans in the sunshine, on the Sunday morning @Fusion. We'd just dropped Scorb & ODT's "Green Eggs & Ham", and the fire truck comes on to hose down the hippies and the place goes absolutely mental. Biggest rush I ever had.

10. Infected Mushroom @Sonica. The music might have been absolutely terrible, but it did instill a sort of "blitz spirit" amongst the survivors, and many screamingly funny wisecracks at their expense… the best of which was Damion's "fuck me, it's a spastic kareoke!"

If you are interested, or just want to bring a ray of sunshine into work on a grey afternoon, then there are photos of these festies at www.hoipolloi.nl/djlurk/photo or www.doei.org/aurora/photo

hehehe, of course the dump had to be at number 1; after nearly 10 years of going to festivals, it was the only one that i have ever had which even approached being pleasant :Wink3:

Bryan Adams has the voice of an angel, when compared to Dudhed, or whoever it is that sing for infected mushroom :Wink3:

aahhh - they were the *jokers* camped a few tents away from us who were insistant on loudly "aving it" in comedy mockney geezer style from thursday onwards - with predictably disastrous effects - from sunday onwards we had to put upwith the inevitable conesequences of them starting too early with loud come down induced screaming matches - if you cannot handle your drugs - dont do them!

end of rant

We're you taking over the Beasie Pants'* role as prime purvayors of K on site?


*Beastie Pants is the very excellent Italian name for their punky/crusty sorts who all dress in black with lots of skull & crossbone tattoos and dogs on string - but strangely no scrumpy...

Playing with me and Gwrgi having a full on psychedelic and real fight yet doing
a totally professional job with Logic Bomb on the last night of the Boom 2000.

Glastonbury playing with Simon Posford cause it was such a letdown, this year.

Being asked by Billy Rood to play along with him and System7.
