Top Ten Must Sees

As we now have confirmation that GM is going ahead and the majority of the line up, who are the acts that you'll definitely be watching?

Suppose I'll start, in no particular order

1) Nadine Shah

2) Teenage Fanclub

3) Self Esteem

4) Black Midi

5) Do Nothing

6) Mogwai

7) The Staves

8) Home Counties

9) Wet Leg

10) King Hannah

Would have Gwenno and Fontaines DC in there but as they clash with TFC I'll have to miss them.

No doubt this will change when I have a proper listen to the playlist.

 

When the line up was announced I turned to Ann and said TFC,Self Esteem and Nadine Shah--Joseph will be happy today.

My ten which will change alot---i don't know 2 of your choices Home Counties and Do nothing so I will have a listen later as well as the unknown others.

 

King Hannah. 

Snapped Ankles. 

Roscoe Roscoe. 

Caroline 

Mogwai 

Caribou 

Viagra Boys 

Sinead O'Brian 

Goa Express 

Fontaine's DC ( mainly because how good live they were at Rockaway Beach)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ha! I'm very predictable!

I only listened to King Hannah today after you mentioned them last night, loved them straightaway.

I'm going to see Fontaines in Manchester in October so not too bothered about missing them at GM.

LUMP

william tyler & marissa anderson are my number 1 must see

but they've disappeared from the line-up page...

hope this isn't a bad sign

only marissa has ever appeared on the poster - but were both listed (together) on the line-up page, and they have a joint record coming out in august and are touring the states together in sept & oct - so presume marissa wouldn't be playing at GM alone

 

Hey Homies .. I've missed you!
Been a shitty time since that last GM for various covid and non covid reasons, as I know it's been for many of us, but I'm ready and willing to party again. I can't wait to smell that healing elixir that rises with the Glanusk dew.

I've a lot of listening to do in a short space of time but I hope to be seeing some of you at ..

Nadine Shah
Ed Dowie
BC Camplight
Fontaines DC
This is the Kit
King Hannah
Snapped Ankles
Peaness
The Surfing Magazines
Melin Melyn

Welcome back Peridot, good to hear from you.

After just getting back from the  Cloudspotting Festival i can heartily recommend Snapped Ankles who were sensational in the saturday night headline slot.

My list of 10

The Surfing Magazines

Nadine Shah

Los Bitchos

Catrin Finch &Sekou Keita

Fontaines DC

King Hannah

Lump

Peaness

Yard Act

Wet Leg

My 10 (before I've done any listening to the acts I don't know)

Boy Azooga

Egyptian Blue

Lazarus Kane

Los Bitchos

Porridge Radio

Shame

Stephen Fretwell

The Lounge Society

The Surfing Magazines

Working Men's Club

presumably, all the rising finalists are still to be added to the bill

teddy hunter; grandma's house; threads; clara mann; paige kennedy

don't they all get to play (on the rising stage)?  or is it only the winner?

and that usual main stage opening slot is taken by last year's winner, i think

confusing...

In order of appearance:

The Lounge Society

Katy J Pearson

Lazarus Kane

Boy Azooga

Django Django

Shame

Crack Cloud

Panic Shack

Snapped Ankles

Fontaines DC

 

Plus loads of others - so excited to be back - we are going in deep this year!
