Mind:

A work colleague sent me an IM. “Pixies to play Isle of Wight Festival” it said.

My response, said verbally rather than over IM as he was actually sitting at an adjacent desk was an eloquent and maybe sweary “What???”

But, it turns out to be true.

Five years back, I’d have booked tickets by now. Five years back, I did.

But it’s not five years back, and things change, and people have different priorities.

Single-day tickets for the Isle of Wight Festival are not available. “You could just accept”, said E, “That they are unlikely to come over here for just one date, and wait to see if they play anywhere else.”

She’s right. And the fact that I did get to see them in 2004 obviously makes it easier.

I do hope its not the only date though.

  • omg, you’ve linked to the dreadfully awful newsbeat website? The news website that does for the news what Fearne Cotton does for higher education?

    Well Brennig – I simply prefer to believe that I searched the bbc.co.uk website for a Pixies story and that was the one that came up. Seemed a bit more in-depth than the story on nme.com !
