Noughtie boys

The Libertines, Franz Ferdinand, Maximo Park: one look at this year's Truck line-up and you'd be forgiven for thinking we're back in 2003. I'm a fan of the latter two bands, but add in the likes of The Wombats and The Vaccines and it's all a bit depressingly safe indie. Given the flak faced by other festivals, I wouldn't be surprised if the organisers aren't called out for largely ignoring female artists too.

Yak and Crows would be worth a peek, but in its current state the bill certainly isn't anything worth hauling myself back to Oxfordshire for.
