Title: Returning acts
Post by: NickNickNick (Nick) on November 08, 2018, 09:48:39 AM
Any thoughts on mid bill acts that have played in the past and should make a return appearance?

My vote is for Blackbeard's Tea Party who were excellent a few years ago and have only improved with their recent offerings

Unique the first time, repetitive the second.
Dreadzone for sure, but a later slot this year as they were lost last time.

Yes! If ever a band deserved a second chance, not playing to a rain drenched audience.
Deadzone need a warm summer's night.
(Well there was one in 2003)

Well, if someone deserves an opportunity to play to some dry people, I nominate Julie Fowlis.

Title: Re: Returning acts

From the same bill, despite my expectations, IMO the Blockheads blew Horslips off the stage.

Sonny Lister, Katzenjammer, Calan (they've really grown up..), Skerryvore,
and I agree it's high time for a repeat visit from Trad Arrr.

Being purely selfish, Iíve seen The Blockheads so many times (they play Colchester in December every year) and I also saw them way back in the early 1980ís with the late great Ian Dury that I think I seeing them yet again would cause me to leave very early. I did love Horslips though  ;D

No no NO Never Horslips - I really didn't connect with them.

I'd be happy to have
Roger Hodgson (please!!!)
Buzzcocks
Litle Feat
Trevor Horn
Madness
Jamie Smith's Mabon (to do a full set this this time)
10CC
Alice Cooper
Wishbone Ash

Well, me for one, but sightings of Horslips, anywhere are few and far between.
Although various members turn up together in a fairly low key fashion. All five members and the more usual 4 + Ray Fean rarely take the stage together.

Petula was OK but once was more than enough - sorry if that upsets people but not sure I could face another hour of her again  :-[

I thought they were great (as they were again last month at Hammersmith).  For me, it was the Waterboys who dsappointed me last time round, so if they really are playing again next year I hope they'll impress me more.

Wendy was correct. The weather didn't do them any favours, though.
