Well after a quick sleep on Friday afternoon my energy levels did return to normal, allowing me to enjoy Ashton Court. In truth the highlights were more social than musical, we managed to catch up with loads of friends and the time really flew past. Musical highlights were provided by the Blackout tent on Saturday, with the vastly contrasting styles of Freeze Puppy and Gonga coming up trumps. Sunday saw some pleasant Jazzy sounds emanating from the WKD Big Top, before we sat through the unrelenting barrage of atonal blast, which Fuzz Against Junk decided to offer festival goers this year. However I can’t understand why this celebration of local music needs to suffer from the curse of the covers band, Bristol is full of people making original and interesting music, we don’t need bands that wish they were AC/DC, Madness or The Red Hot Chilli Peppers please take them all away.
