My first Standon Calling. A very interesting mix of bands I love and music I wouldn’t touch with a bargepole.

Musical highlights? Idles are a highlight wherever I see them. Same for British Sea Power, who played the enclosed Laundry Meadows stage and made it feel like it was their own venue.

I don’t care much for Grace Jones’s music but her stage presence is amazing.

Interviewed a number of bands including Strong Asian Mothers (nice guys) and the Tangerines (drunk and uninterested).

KT Tunstall was a delight to chat to. Gary Numan was not as much fun as the first time I interviewed him, but I think that was mostly due to his tour manager who was trying to hurry us up all the way through it.

Oh and I finally caught Steve Davis and Kavus Torabi DJing. Crowd were having it large!
