Thread: Simian Mobile Disco

  1. #1

    Default Simian Mobile Disco

    Where the organisers have fallen short in indie/rock/alternative acts, they've played an absolute blinder with the electro/house acts. There are some absolute corkers scheduled and for anyone who hasn't seen them play yet, Simian Mobile Disco are absolutely out of this world and will have the place bouncing. Saw them last year at the Benecássim festival in Spain and it made my trip. In fact, I probably enjoyed watching them more than I enjoyed watching the Arctics and Kings of Leon.

    Gotta look on the brightside. It's my first time at this festival and I don't give a sh*t if the lineup falls short, getting right off it in the dessert is gonna be savage.

    Do it.

    I had no idea what Simian Mobile Disco were like until I recently heard Hustler for the first time after checking out their myspace when I saw them on the lineup.. Totally fell in it instantly and now have their album.. Great shit.. love listening to all the new bands on the lineup that I have no idea about..

    How was Benicassim? I want to hear all about it because I really want to go this year because My Bloody Valentine will be playing. And 9 days of camping within walking distance of the beach, from what I hear. That sounds epic.

    SMD are one of my must see acts this year.

    Attack Sustain Release was one of the best dance albums of 07.

    I'm a big fan of Tits and Acid off of their album and the other stuff. It should be epic.

    Here's the question though...

    Will Simian Mobile Disco and Justice do "Never Be Alone" together? I know SMD is not totally Simian, but hey, that would be SICK!!!!

    If I had the money to go to a record store, I would
    Go to the record store
    Go to the record store and put records in my clothes
    Go to the record store
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Benicassim was amazing and the 2008 lineup looks ace, so can't recommend it enough. Don't expect too much from the town though, it's a bit of a shit hole and the restaurants are weak for Spain.

    Still, great party festival and if you're into the dance scene, the 'extras' are everywhere.

    One thing though, if you're gonna camp, be prepared for your tent nearly melting. Get's blisteringly hot by 11am and the festival doesn't finish until 7am.

    Cool, I'm also looking into going this year to Benicassim, any other recommendations? Thanks.
