Anyone have any ideas as to who may be filling up the TBA slots on the Main Stage on the Sunday. I'm going to see The Manics but it would be nice if there was someone else on the Sunday I wanted to see.

The 1990's are listed in my top 5, "worst bands I've ever had the misfortune to see". *shudder*

Awful.

I had the misfortune to be in the same venue as them twice, even bigger shudder. :down:

Ill stick up for 1990s and say "i like them"

Saw them support CSS and enjoyed it, thought they just wanted to have fun, good lyrical turn - they make me laugh and nod my head! :up:

They remind me of Johnathan Richman and the Modern Lovers... But without the tunes.

I don't know who that is but I think the 1990's have some great tunes. I like their style and lyrics.

Please take that comparison back. Jonathan Richman is good, they aren't. o_O

If you have seen 'There's Something About Mary' Jonathan Richman is the guy doing the songs who pops up throughout the film. He has an ongoing solo career but was in a band called The Modern Lovers in the early 70's who reconvened in the later 70's. Their self-titled album is well worth getting.

Hmm, have to disagree there, Roadrunner, She's Cracked and Pablo Picasso are all excellent tunes.

Eh?....you have misread my post I think.....Jonathan Richman/Modern Lovers/combination of the 2 = good, 1990's = bad was my point.

Yeah, I agree with that. I probably need to be taking more brain medicine or something.

The Rock Ness line-up is distinctly below average. There's barely a single act on the entire bill that I'd pay to go and see.

I don't get what the fuss is about with this festival.
