I do love the whole village thing at Cropredy, can't wait to see what they do with the scarecrows this year.  


The village thing was one of my favorite experiences last year, excepting only that no one would just give me directions to the church - they instead sold me a map of the scarecrows and the village.  Smiley

Interestingly, for me at least..at the Victorious Festival in Pompey in August, Brian Wilson is third on the bill on the Saturday, pitched between Paloma Faith and the Mondays... https://www.victoriousfestival.co.uk/poster-artwork/

Hmm Maybe not, there's too many acts per day for it to be a one stage festival, I reckon BW will be headlining second stage or second on the bill for main.

Old man reviving a 40+year old album on before the Happy Mondays?

I bet he's the only act on the bill who's above 40 year old?

Without wishing to be rude to the Happy Mondays ,

I should think they would be happy to clean Brian Wilson's shoes.

OK but this all feels a bit odd, Wilson is 75 playing an album that is 51 years old. The average age of attending punter is likely to have Grand-parents of his age and parents as old as Smile? 75% of them won't have heard of the Beach Boys and 90% will have never heard Smile never mind Pet Sounds and they put him second on the bill on Saturday night at a time that doesn't feel right.

Ok, Victorious is a multi-stage festival, and Brian Wilson's appearance has been billed as playing a more generic "Greatest Hits" set as opposed to his "Pet Sounds" set.

Irrespective is it still not odd for him to be programmed between Paloma Faith and the headlining Mondays on Saturday night?

The baby brother went to see the Mondays in Carlisle a week or two back. He was not impressed at all.
His actual words were not repeatable on a public forum.

I think so, which is why I originally highlighted the issue.  

I quite like the Mondays in a throwback to youthful indiscretions kind of a way.  They were pretty rubbish 30 years ago, but a good excuse to get loaded and have a good time nonetheless.  PF is just dull.  Don't get the attraction at all.

The Mondays used to be a good night out, given the right errrrrr......mood, but age, drugs, mutual loathing and Sean's new teeth have turned them into a shell of what they were. To come back after all the baggage they are carrying you need to be pretty top class musicians which they never quite were. Roll Eyes

Not to mention that the Barenaked Ladies did s great song about him, and there was a great film about him too, "Love and Mercy", featuring a staggering performance by Paul Giamacci as his criminally insane shrink.
