Popfest was loads of fun. Thanks organisers, Ray the super-friendly sound dude, and dancing kids down the front.

I have a few Notes songs and all of girls names. The quality isn't great though.
Anyway, we had a great time (the notes) and met some lovely lovely people. Thankyou to all involved, next time we'll save up our money and stay every day!


here's the first song of our set... nineteen. you can see the worry on our faces when we realise Aarons bass amp isn't making its normal noise, it made none the whole set

Actually, Paul, if you see this is there any chance you can post the list of songs you played (if that's not too much of a pain to do), as I know there were some absolute classics in there, which escape me now (though I do remember acting out the lyrics of 'Everything Counts' by Depeche Mode with the Gill sisters).
Hey, I've just seen this. I'm in Sweden at the moment but when I get back to London I shall post what I can remember. Thank you for the kind words!

I enjoyed your set too - I kept wanting to come up and ask you the names of the songs the songs that you were playing - which I ended up doing just the once! Maybe if I'd had that shazam/ soundhound thing then that would have helped.

So - if you would be able to post what you remember. at some time, then that would be much appreciated..

I stopped asking for names of the songs, mostly because EVERYTIME I've been thinking "F*** I know this one, I just can't remember the band" in the last Popfests, it appeared to be Belle & Sebastian. I'll never ask again.

Great tracklist!

My 12" of Genius Of Love is completely worn out, I've been playing it out since 1981 - Wannabe Grandmaster Flash B-Boys have even offered me money for it! fantastic track!
Cheers!

"Talking Heads - Psycho Killer
Television - Venus
*The Velvet Underground - White Light/White Heat
The Stooges - I Wanna Be Your Dog"

I remember dancing and thinking this little section was particularly fab:- Psycho Killer, from a guitar pop perspective, (and all of the 77 album) is nervy, stripped down NYC "punk" to me, as is the Television track. And to follow it up with that uncompromising Velvets track was a real high - maybe it was designed to frighten away any hipsters but it felt like it was played to "fit" the night, if you consider that "indiepop" has links with "punk" and its 60s counterculture roots. Likewise The Stooges track, though it's a good job it wasn't followed by The Vaselines' "Rory Rides Me Raw" - that would have exhausted me completely.
It's so easy when the door is wide open.
