Trucking awful

The line-up for Green Man already looked good last week, but it looks infinitely better alongside the bill announced by the festival that was formerly on my doorstep. This year's Truck boasts (to use that word with unprecedented levels of sarcasm) the likes of Blossoms, Catfish And The Bottlemen, The Kooks, DMAs, Bombay Bicycle Club and The Pigeon Detectives. They might as well rebrand the bash Now That's What I Call Landfill Indie.

I don't know what's most depressing - the appalling gender balance (chucking in The Big Moon and The Orielles can't offset things, lads) or the fact that that line-up has still got people falling over themselves to buy tickets.

Still, at least there's the chance that Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs will terrify/blow a few tiny minds.
