You know when you're sat at home on a Thursday morning and you see an email saying Ryan Adams The Apollo tickets on sale Thursday, and you think it's Wednesday so you make a mental note to check Ticketmaster tomorrow....

Love the new album. Brother Butts not so much from the last time i spoke to him ???

Classic Ryan Adams i think certainly as good as anything in the last ten years for me. Track one is a bit off kilter but has grown on me now i love it

I always like your Green Man reviews, but I was looking at the full page ad for this year's festival in Mojo and there wasn't much that caught my attention band-wise. I'm sure the Kirklees Hedonists will find where the scene 'is at' though. I hope you all have a blast kid!

Cheers but Dunno about that mate. I don't think I've looked forward to so many bands at one festival ever. In kind of priority order i've got

Ryan Adams.
What can you say? Fearless, ploughs his own adventurous furrow and singer/writer/guitarist of some of the finest songs I've ever heard that never fail to thrill, can't wait.

PJ Harvey.
Brave, provocative, raunchy, just hope she doesn't play too much of her more challenging stuff.

Thee Oh Sees.
should absolutely rip open the Far out tent. Constantly evolving, constantly thrilling

Richard Dawson
Bonkers Psycho Folk, the nearest thing I've ever found to the Fall in terms of creating his own mad genius world.

Conor Oberst (aka Bright Eyes)
Simply beautiful Songwriter, often desperately emotional but always articulated with emphatic  prose. Makes me laugh, smile and dewy but always makes me something.

The Sleaford Mods.
Holy Moses we need this band right now. State of the Union blasts to punchy beats.

Lambchop.
Fluent Class Americana  creating a melodic and magnetic hold live.

Hurray For The Riff Raff.
Emerging if not already emerged brilliant band on top of their game playing out expressive singer songwriter Alynda Lee Segarra's rolling commentary on her country.

Angel Olsen.
intense dark and light womencentric angst. Love her last album

Field Music
brilliant energetic fizzing funk pop

Wolf People.
kind of retro psychedelic band but come across as fresh and creative

The Shins
Ace Indie blast

Yorkston Thorne Khan
Missed this fabulous Asian Folk groove last time. Won't be making the same mistake again

Michael Chapman
Legend, Finger picking maestro songsmith making a deserved comeback if indeed he ever went away

Kate Tempest
Flowing torrent of spoken word capturing the times. As right on as you can get for me. Never seen anything like this on such a big stage but certain it will go down great

Alasdair Roberts
Fantastic Folk, brilliant resonating tuneful tales mixing trad with contemporary issues and styles

Trembling Bells
Criminally underrated or at least under recognised. Free flowing indie folkish groove.

Michael Kiwanuka
Warm spirited soul, great guitars and groovy as fuck

Johnny Flynn
More Folk, got into him after mistaking him for a band we heard in the distance last year. Wasn't who I thought he was but his English Folk (even though he isnt) is perfect for the Green man.

Aldous Harding
New Zealand, captivating folk songs , beautiful Voice

Future Islands
Strange but I loved that album a couple of years ago, not sure about the new one though. Should be a great live spectacle on the main stage

That's it for the stuff I'm certain about. Other stuff that sounds good on the strength of certain songs I've heard by them are

Badbadnotgood (Did an ace collaboration with Ghostface Killa)
This is the Kit (Sweet harmony singing)
Anna Meredith (Spectacular contemporary classical)
Chris Forsyth (interesting, Angular panoramic guitarist)
Nadia Reid (another New Zealander, lovely dreamy folk, I'm sure I'll get into her more before the festival)
Karl Blau (classic Americana, reminds me of Glen Campbell which is not a bad thing)
Julie Byrne (Whispy delicate)
Gill Landry (love his Funeral in my heart song)
Gospelbeach (If Sunshine Highway is representative of all their stuff it will be perfect early starter stuff)

I'm certain other unknown things will spring out and brother Butts is certain to come up with an hitherto unknown recommendation or two. Then there is the ace food stalls, the village pub, the mountains. Fuck, I cant wait and ill do a full report seeing's you've been so kind about it

Just had another look at the line up and a few other bands have been snook in. British Sea power for instance always ace live with a plethora of quality indie tunes. St Etienne as well. Completely forgot about Thursday night as well. Ride will close out no doubt on a wave of swirling trippy noise. Allah Las are tidy if a tad too clinically retro for some then there is Josh T Pearson's band Lift to Experience. Their one album from yonks ago is brilliant so a real treat to see them live.
