Hey martin - just back from greenman; agree with you entirely, what an amazing festival. great music, incredible settings, good food, clean toilets, barely a w*nker to be found

apologies for not approaching you after your set (had intended to, but got distracted by a random glimpse of 2 of my best friends who i've not seen for several years - it was they who requested betsi's beads, as it happens) or indeed when I was sat about 2 feet away from you, using the wall as support during marissa nadler. loved your folky set - especially the reworking of vote you - in spite of the electronic gremlins, and think the rest of the festival did too. sparking up to the intro of good life, then getting warmed by the emerging sun - that and the next five minutes were probably my best of the whole weekend. i notice several people have you down as a highlight on the greenman website messageboards.

other personal highlights were m ward and gruff on friday, but generally anything i stumbled on in the cafe, but in particular nancy cunliffe and - of course - meic stevens.

can't wait for next year already,

billy

some good coverage of the festival here:

that jose gonzales cover of the kylie song should have featured in 'tune of the day' by now shouldn't it?

Theres a review of the festival here:

http://www.drownedinsound.com/event/view/18549

The bit about bc says: Since relocating to Cardiff, Brave Captain (on at The Cafe) has built upon his Boo Radleys heritage to develop a very special and idiosyncratic sound, all wrapped around his intrinsic knack for a good tune.

The power cord on my macbook is broke. Nothing ever works.

Don't suppose anyone recorded anything? Missed it, but would like to hear it.

Any chance of ever hearing those "new" tunes?

It was a good festival, despite the rain. I think I saw you actually Martin walking past with a hat on. I definitely saw and met up with Billy Casper!

Definitely want to go back next year!

ok, so again i totally suck, first time i've checked in here for about 3 months, but it's my 26th birthday today, wasted in a hostel in a budapest having seen hungary (and akos buszaky legend), erm, demolish malta 2-0 iin budapest. well what can i say? advertisements...is still pretty much a daily listen, green man was again the best british festival and martin, sorry, we never fully caught up in the way i had meant, chicago is the best city in the world and elliott smith is still the biggest waste of musical talent ever. another year older, wishing i wasnt and that i didnt care, my last relationship lastest 3 weeks and she was more special to me than anything i can recall, and even if it wasn't special she worked in a library so at least she paid off all my fines.

Aw, you sound sad Billy... Sad
Relationships are amazing and rubbish, but not at the same time. fortunately the amazing bits make up for the rubbish hopefully though...
But Happy Birthday anyway! And 26 is definitely not old!
