Just about recovered - musically the best Rebellion yet, great to see so many friends once again although sadly some notable absentees (hopefully to be corrected next year!)

THURSDAY
Addictive Philosophy a new band to me who I really enjoyed great fun ska influenced experimental punk   
Pete Bentham & the Dinner Ladies; always enjoy his Kitchencore and he certainly seems to be building an audience
Pears; fantastic hardcore punk, actually a lot more hardcore than I suspected but certainly cleared any lingering cobwebs. First hearing of the weekend of 'Judy is a Punk'
CJ Ramone; first time for me in the once-off outdoor stage area. Enjoyable but really a tribute act but good to get a second outing of the day for  'Judy is a Punk'...
Flag; what can I say? It was Flag in the sunshine
Don Letts interview; he roamed the stage and covered ground he has been over many time before, but a great listen
TV Smith; on the big Ballroom stage. Sadly before, and after the gig never had a chance to chat to Tim, he was always so busy! Another stand-out show, first solo, and then with Leigh followed by Attila joining them and finally a fourth guy whose name escapes me but I remember seeing last year as well. Just a great show, with all the old favourites plus a new song 'No Hope Street'. How does TV keep it so fresh year after year?
The Descendants; really looking forward to this bunch but after 3 songs I realised I was bored and would probably enjoy the Dickies more...
The Dickies; great fun, but no Leonard! It seems he is in hospital... so they do a variety of Dickies songs with members apparently from the audience, some good, and some who should never be allowed near a mic.. Entertaining but not what I was expecting

FRIDAY
Fuckwits; OK but cannot remember much about their set...
Wonk Unit; wonderful fun in the sunshine, and after ahem too many pints with some new German friends, found myself dancing in the pit
Reagan Youth; excellent
Brix Smith interview; marriage to Mark E Smith did not sound too attractive; how did he pull her?!
Peter Hook interview; he came across really well and seems to get on with everyone other than New Order... great insights
Brix Smith & the Extricated; one of the highlights of the weekend, much better than expected. Great band and as well as her own stuff some Fall gems
Notsensibles; still in love with Maggie it seems
Weirdos; one of my 'must see' bands and they didn't disappoint
Romanas; great fun and the last airing of 'Judy is a punk' that I heard
Exploited; thought I would watch them for a change and they were pretty damn good
Buzzcocks; just caught the last songs but this year the sound was amazing and 'Never fallen in Love..'; 'I Don't Mind', 'Orgasm Addict' and finally 'Oh Shit' sounded stunning

SATURDAY
Spunk Volcano; fun but no where near as good as Dirtbox...
Graham Fellows interview, not funny but interesting interesting insights into the Manchester scene and Rabid records
B Bang Cider with Vom on drums; marvellous
Jilted John; worth it just for that song
London; recharged my batteries comfortably sitting watching in the Ballroom
Major Accident; joined Gareth for them, and they did a great set to a surprisingly young and enthusiastic crowd
Ruts DC; what can I say? The new songs fitted seamlessly with the old, a special gig
Spizz; just caught Captain Kirk at the end and had a bop
Glitter Band; the saxophonist looked like Young Mr Grace but they had me dancing great end to the night

SUNDAY
Dirtbox Disco; in the sunshine a large crowd and loads of laughs
Louise Distras saw them with Chris. She was great as ever but the band did not seem to add anything to the songs; a solo gig with band accompaniment
Here & Now; went for a couple of songs stayed for the lot. Does that make me a hippy?
Slaughter & the Dogs; enjoyable but..... guitar could have been higher in the mix and I wasn't wholly convinced
Adicts; just a great theatrical way to end the weekend
SLF; caught the last song; 'Alternative Ulster and it sounded great!

Maybe next year I might drink a little less, and saw a few less bands.... maybe

Now that's a review!

No, you're not a hippy, but there does seem to be a typo concerning Slaughter - shouldn't it read "absolutely brilliant"?

Cheers matey. I hope to keep you (somewhat) off the booze and in the venues next year!

Maybe that's because we arrived half way through their last song!
Just heard from Guy- 999 played with The Dickies last night in Edinburgh; no Leonard again,he's back in the US now for surgery on gallstones.

Glad to hear Leonard's is not too serious!
