New York Dolls play Carling Fest!

Recommended Posts

Have they played the Morrissey inspired reunion gig thing yet? I have yet to hear anything about it. Christ I hope more of them haven't died as a result of the stress.

Are they all still thin? Do they still dress in quasi-drag? So many questions, so few answers.

apparently so' date=' on the Mainstage: [url']http://www.reading-festival.org.uk/lineup.asp

The Network are also playing. am i correct in believeing that members of GreenDay are in this band?

The network... to my recollection... are just Greenday... with masks... and er... guitar synths... playing different material.

Basically... a better Greenday.

My Morning Jacket aren't playing Reading anymore :down:

From there website -

"Due to circumstances beyond My Morning Jacket's control, the following shows have been postponed: 07/04 Diksmuide - 08/20 Tilburg - 8/21 Pukkelpop - 08/25 Aberdeen - 08/26 Edinburgh - 08/28 Reading - 08/29 Leeds We hope to reschedule the shows as soon as possible."

Was annoying that they were playing Aberdeen on the day I leave for Reading festival but hopefully now this means I can see them at the lemon tree when they reschedule.
