Greetings everyone, sorry it's been so long but as you can tell the community has kind of been on a hiatus period. Unfortunatly the mixed cd distribution has not worked out like I would have hoped - but we can maybe still make it work so get mixing and reviewing!

So how was everyone's summer been? Are there any gigs and/or festivals that you've been to? Any decent albums, new band recommendations for the communtiy please post if you do, hopefully we can get this community up and running again. :D

Thankyou, Rachael

Gigs/festivals I've been to this summer:

T in the Park-fantastic, Kaiser Chiefs were great
Franz Ferdinand-again, great
Pixies-v.good although didn't think much of the support acts (My Latest Novel, Idlewild, Teenage Fanclub)
Stereophonics-bit bland, so-so

Going to see the Prodigy in November.

As for album/band recommendations.....don't really have any at the moment but if anything springs to mind I'll let you know!

Ok this summer I went to see...

Patrick Wolf- enchanting, he has such a mesmerising voice.
T in the Park- Totally wicked day! Enjoyed the prodigy, bloc party and louis the xiv the most.
Franz Ferdinand- Fantastisch! Supported by the BRILLIANT Arcade Fire. Took lots of pics.
Pixies- played excellent set! But support bands were rubbish.

Album recommendations? It has to be Stellastarr*- Harmonies for the haunted. Out this sept.! Can't wait till they tour. :D

The gigs of the summer that I attended were Juliette and the Licks and the Pixies both of which I enjoyed immensely.

Albums to recommend - I have discovered the Kaiser Chiefs one and I think it's a fantastic album! I have just been given a loan of Arcarde Fire's album and the new Taproot one but other than that I haven't been buying many CDS. I've been listening to System of A Down's latest opus a lot as well as Pearl Jam's greatest hits both of which get my recommendations.

As for new new to look out for, nothing special just new albums from bands I like (guilty pleasures!) like Bon Jovi and Nickelback. I'm sure there will be others also but I'm not quite sure what they are yet.
