JUNE 2013 - Meltdown (Yoko Ono), Stone Roses

Curated this year by YOKO ONO

Siouxsie Sioux's first London gig for 5 years.  They had to add an extra night due to popular demand.

Viv Albertine has a new album of songs, after 25 years away, as well as her wonderful stories.

The Vermillion Border (Cadiz Records)     Ten Stars - Excellent Record
You might like to know that the record was started off by Strummerville and Pledgemania.  Some of it was recorded at Mick Jones' studio where Mr Jones played guitar and guests that came on board include: Bruce Smith (Pop Group/Slits/PiL)  Jack Bruce (Cream), Jenny Lee Lindberg (Warpaint), Tina Weymouth, Wayne Nunes (Tricky), Glen Matlock, Richard Pike (PVT – Warp Records), Dennis Bovell (a genius) Norman Watt Roy (Blockheads, Wilko), Danny Thompson (Nick Drake, John Martin, Pentangle).

SIOUXSIE SIOUX - headlined in 2 parts.  Kaleidoscope in its entirety and a second whip-cracking, unflaggingly fabulous set.
Here she is in all her shiny white vinyl glory.

No Budgie on drums - that's the really lovely Robert Brian who was so nice to me backstage as I collected autographs like a 10 year old.  Couldn't help myself. 

Floated home.


Iggy and the Stooges were also at MELTDOWN.
Iggy asked the audience up on stage.
Here are the ones who heeded the call.

Overheard that at Glastonbury: Rolling Stones play the Headline slot on Saturday night.
EVERYONE -  that's like 180,000 campers - emerge from their tents wearing Rolling Stones T-shirts.
The Rolling Stones floated home.

Down the hill in Finsbury Park ... The Stone Roses came and played outside.  It was warm enough to wear a t-shirt.   This man floated home:
