Bury good - for a change

Yesterday I noted that the Truck line-up is actually worth getting moderately excited about this year. It's significantly more alarming to realise that another stalwart of the Oxfordshire festival calendar holds personal appeal: Cornbury - appropriately dubbed Poshstock - boasts both The Specials and The Beach Boys as headliners.

Even entertaining the thought of going makes me queasy, fearful of both advancing years and a slide towards the right-hand side of the political spectrum. Still, it would be good to witness Terry Hall and friends play 'Ghost Town' to the architects and enablers of Tory austerity.

That said, the third headliners are Keane - so perhaps best give it a miss...
