Connect 2008 Special

How do ELMers. The ELM team has just returned home from festive Inverary, where we witnessed a myriad of acts and will praise and sneer at them in equal measure over the week. We can say, with all certainty, that it was incredibly muddy and that Carling really is the devil’s piss.

One little story to whet your appetite; ELM is in the toilet queue when a girl who looked somewhat merry turned to us and said –

Drunk Girl – Who’s that on?

ELM – Spiritualized.

DG – Are they big?

ELM – Reasonably.

DG – Who’s on next?

ELM – Grinderman (recieves blank look) It’s Nick Cave.

DG – Who’s Nick Cave?

ELM – If you don’t mind me asking, why did you come here?

DG – I love Paolo Nutino (sic). That song is magic (starts singing) ‘I’ve had the same jeans on for four days now’.

ELM – That’s The View.

DG – Is it? Do you think he’ll play it anyway?

So there you go. We’ve suffered for this week’s art…..

  1. Festivals are for part-timers.

  2. Anybody who braved that mud is a serious gig goer HW.

  3. I thought ELM might be interested to know that The Herald reported that the lovely Paolo Nutino (they spelt it Nutini bizarely πŸ˜‰ ) was the highlight of the Saturday line up, even without Same Jeans πŸ˜€ although rumour has it that the journalist is getting free fish and chips for a year for writing it.

  4. paulo nutino (excellent name btw) sings like he has no teeth in, his songs are poorly constructed and he has nothing going for him other than he’s quite cute and women want to shag him. Except he’s always drunk so would prob be useless in that respect too.

    I have heard better singers in an old mans pub at closing time. it was only the festival highlight for people with no ears.


    Him aside Connect was pretty good!

  5. We’ll come to Paolo tomorrow. It will not be pretty.

  6. I was at Connect and watched the full Paolo set, so if ELM would like a review from someone who actually stayed to watch it, I am happy to volunteer πŸ™‚

  7. You will, as always Suedehead, have the right to reply…. πŸ™‚
