As much as I hate it I have to keep quoting it. It's the NME, of course. The new issue of the bollockers has a full page about the Peterless and Mikless "Babyshambles" show at the Shockwaves launch night of last week (above).
The rag also publishes the NME writers' "Album Of The Year" chart, and Shotters Nation is at number 14. This is the Top 5 according to the top bollockers:
1.Klaxons - Myths of the Near Future
2.Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare
3.Radiohead - In Rainbows
4.Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
5.Les Savy Fav - Let’s Stay Friends
The Festival season seems as far as Jupiter at the moment but summer will be here before we know. So, beware:
My Bloody Valentine and Babyshambles have been confirmed amongst the first batch of bands for Benicassim 2008. Also joining them are The Rumble Strips will more acts to be continually announced over the coming months. Tickets for the festival go on sale tomorrow (December 14) with earlybird prices being 160 Euros for a four day pass, although this is a limited offer of 5000 tickets.
