Have the artists and the people putting on gigs/festivals all got shit for brains? Are they so up their own arses that they havent noticed a global recession? The unemployment figures? Even the current suicide rate? Where do they get off charging like £15 quid or so to go to a dodgy venue to see 3 or 4 unsigned bands?(thinking of Borderline,London) How about some old codger who hit fame in the 60s/70s charging in excess of £70 quid to go see him spit out some dusty dated material (thinking Rick Wakeman forthcoming “gig” in London) What about this summer`s festivals across the UK? Well over £150 Pounds for 2 days (not including the transport to/from, camping. food, drugs/alcohol or whatever it is you`re in to, etc) to go sit in a muddy field with a bunch of spotty teens while some dot size figures try to sing over the screams of demented fans? (thinking NIN aka Trent Reznor)
Well, I hope my anger doesnt subside until I finish doing the relevant research because I fancy ripping apart this money grabbing mother f*cking bastards aka big name bands and festivals.
