Lifts to Indietracks from further afield?

mr dandelion and I are flying over from Dublin this year. It's my first Indietracks in a few years, and his first ever, so we're really excited :) Unfortunately the flights between Dublin and East Midlands take off at stupid o'clock on the Friday and Monday so we are looking at alternative arrangeme...

Friday 27th April - This Is How It Feels retro indie disco in Lancaster

Hello, sharing this for my friend who's putting this on (hoping to make it over myself) https://www.facebook.com/events/183268295730575/ I know it looks very Britpoppy but the event organiser is also a big lover of Sarah and all things indiepop from the 80s and 90s so would definitely throw in some ...

Re: Sarah Showcase Tour 2018

@Julian I don't know much about promoters but get in touch with the folks at Popical Island (you'll know them already from No Monster Club) - I'm sure they'd be as thrilled as I would for this tour to come here!

(Saw you in Melbourne in September btw, loved it :))

Any chance of bringing this to Dublin? Nobody ever plays in Dublin!

Re: Need help IDing and old Twee song from old Mixtape

Wish I'd seen this thread, I would have ID'd it instantly :D

Great song, from their only release with original singer Jina Yi (later of Racecar).

Re: The distant islands fantasy travel thread

And speaking of tidal islands, I'm just going to put this here: Ten walks to Scottish tidal islands I did the Brough of Birsay! It was amazing. 8am and I was the only person there, alone with the wildlife and the old ruins. A couple hours later I was able to look back at it from a vantage point som...

Re: New Even As We Speak 10inch / CD

Still buzzing from the Melbourne launch last night! New songs sound great.

I can't believe that was their first ever gig in Melbourne?! From now on I'm going to go around telling other indiepopsters that I saw EAWS's first Melbourne gig and make myself sound much cooler than I actually am.

Yes, I was hoping people might think that instead of thinking he looks like Hitler, but unfortunately it seems people can do both. So I've resigned myself to it.

Couldn't think of a name for him so I asked my six-year-old niece and nephew. They came up with Fuzzyhead. Fuzzy for short.

Re: BAH: the curmudgeonly non-attending sulkers' thread

My parents had their 50th anniversary this month so I was forced to decamp to Hawaii for a couple weeks. Not the worst place to be instead of Indietracks, but still sorry to miss it.

Re: Song x sounds like song y

"Travelling Light" by the Tindersticks, one of my favourite songs ever, always makes me think of (the slow bits of) Donna Summer's "On the Radio".

Great indiepop couplets

So, I dreamed the other night that I published a book collecting great indiepop couplets. (I have strange dreams - sorry :)) The only one I actually remember from the dream was from the Bodines: "I'm weakening, I'm shaking and rattling everything" Thought about it a bit more when I woke up and anoth...

Just back from the Dublin gig. Mostly the same set they played at Indietracks, but with an encore of Doledrums and Rolling Moon. Utterly wonderful.

Re: Ripley Premier Inn

For three nights? That's good! And 40 minutes isn't anything when you know what you're walking to, is it? Absolutely, it was no problem walking there at all. Didn't fancy the walk back but might have done it if I wasn't on my own. Not quite as convenient as Moss Cottage but I wasn't happy with Moss...
