My personal memory for the day was Thomas joining my on stage.

There always seems to be a cool moment involving kids, last year it was seeing Mark's little boy bopping away to Land Lovers, this year it was your son peeking out from behind you as you played.

Really enjoyed the day, I the only bands playing that I'd never seen before were Biggles Flys Again and Ginnells, and I really liked them both, Ginnells especially, one of the absolute highlights of the day.

All along the banks of your grand canal.
Ginnells were amazing alright. Also GPO were on fire and the new drummer was great for them.

Between minding kids and setting up for bands I was playing in, I saw less music year this year than in previous years. But amazing fun all the same. Thanks to everyone coming along and making it happen.

Every year has unforgettable moments and this year for me they were:
- Mumblin' Deaf Ro (+Thomas) playing Being Bill Cosby in the Parlour, which was the perfect venue for him + band. It was great there were so many kids there. Also St Christopher's Water.
- Yeh Deadlies cranking it up to 90 with Learning Chinese
- Ginnels playing Gangs of Witches
- No Monster Club moshpit
- Ian Squarehead and Shane Land Lovers being wasted

Best GPO set I've seen.
Ginnels brilliant as usual, and Gangs of Witches really came alive as played by the band. Possibly my favourite single song of the day.
Loved Mumblin' Deaf Ro, can't wait to hear the album. Very endearing choreography.
Deadlies set a rare treat at the moment and bloody hell it was great. Night Traveller is already a favourite (I don't know if that's the name of the song).
Ruan's Lie Ins drumming, Mike losing the head on Hands in Your Thumbs.
Obviously the general vibe was satisfying and nice and exciting, hooray.

I can't think of a single group/performer that didn't exceed expectations for me, and it's not as if I was expecting dross! Ginnels especially go from strength to strength.

"going to the shop!"
