Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.

    Stone Roses fans getting the exact same cloying MOR shit a hundred times over as they deserve. This is about as punk as fucking James May at a classic car convention.

  2. I’m actually really glad I could only get a Sunday ticket now, cos I originally wanted Fri or Sat but my internet was too shit that day…. missed the Justice Tonight gig in Manchester and Dirty North are ace. And whilst not a fan of either I would sooner watch Plan B than Beady Eye any day of the week. Result.

  3. this line up is terrible.£65. been waiting months for this news, gutted. an oasis tribute band, clash tribute, eminem wanna be, hollie(who the fuck is she)cook, wailers(we might need a resurection here as there lead singer died 31 fucking years ago) and to top it all plan fucking shitty B. whoever came up with this bright idea should be tortured to death, slowly.

  4. Beady Eye – shocking band,really awful. A band that exists to sell a clothing brand. Wonder if there will be a Pretty Green concession near the merch stalls.

    And as for Professor (fookin Professor) Green. I hope he is light on his feet or brings a brolly as I suspect there may well be “showers” heading in his direction.

    They should have gone whole hog and resurrected Gary Clail Sound system so new generation can suffer like us Spike Island attendees did

  5. I can not say how disappointed I am with the line up! Self indulgence by Mr Brown I fear, trying to get down with the kids and missing the mark by a mile! Nobody I have spoken to plans to get there before the Roses come on now! This gig could have been monumental but now nobody in the crowd will be in the mood for it – talk about shooting yourselves in the foot! If we wanted white bot hip ‘pop’ we would have gone to V!

  6. Friday line up is fucking immense!. The Wailers, Primal Scream then The Roses. Tip fucking top. As for Dan Lucas, what a prick. Hope your next shit is a hedgehog.

  7. Thought I’d add some positivity. Personally, I think it’s a great lineup – a healthy mix of old and new. Primal Scream is an excellent choice for Friday, as is the Vaccines who are a great live and. The Justice Tonight Band featuring Mick Jones and members of the Farm will not disappoint. Their set will mainly comprise Clash songs, which is no bad thing. Ian Brown and John Squire (both Clash fans) joined the Justice Tonight band, whose cause is to highlight the injustice of the families of the Hillsborough disastor, onstage at the Manchester Ritz so its nice to see them return the favor. Not too sure about the Wailers, but it will be nice to hear some classic reggae, hopefully in the sunshine.
    Beady Eye will be OK – you cant argue the fact that Liam is great frontman
    By the way, Hollie Cook used to be a member of the more recent Slits lineup and her solo stuff is not that bad. She is like a much funkier version of Lily Allen. Her dad is Paul Cook from the Sex Pistols which is pretty cool in itself
    Anyway, lets just remember that it will all be about one band and one band only that day – the ‘fucking’ Stone Roses. Peace and love

  8. Terrible support acts! There are hundreds of unsigned bands out there that are far more entertaining than this line-up. Bands that are really struggling to get on the map, it would have been really nice to see one or two of them given a chance to shine….Anyone wanna buy a ticket? :(
