There are now just over two weeks until Supersonic! Up until this year I had neglected the festival, prefering to go to far away places and muddy fields. However, the line up this year is superb, and with its interesting programmes of talks, films and demostrations, I have been won over!
I am particularly looking forward to Venetian Snares, Zu, Caribou, Monotonix and The Memory Band’s unique take on the Wicker Man soundtrack. But more on those later…

Brumcast have made two special Supersonic podcasts which you can listen to here. I have been listening to them on loop today and have already discovered some more bands that I’d like to see. In particular Rose Kemp, daughter of Maddy Prior and Rick Kemp from the mighty Steeleye Span. Little Chris sounds a lot like a brummie John Peel :-) R.I.P John.
