How cool is the middle day main stage - 7 awesome bands in a row :)
Here's three tracks from three headliners - but I skipped Metallica coz Metallica suck.

Rage Against the Machine - Killing in the Name Of (Mr. Oizo Remix) (highly recommended - kills it on the dancefloor)
(original on Rage Against the Machine)

The Killers - Exitlude (lovely... download it)
(from Sam's Town)

The Cribs - I'm a Realist (Postal Service Remix) (highly recommended - seriously, the combination works, even in the sweary bits)
(original on Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever)

Reading and Leeds tickets are on sale now. They're probably sold out by the time you read this though :(

hello. its joe.

have undoubtedly missed out on tickets.
reasons to be sad: Rage, QOTSA, Dizzee, Justice, Biffy.
Reasons not to be sad: everyone else on the list. seriously, i can't believe how excited ppl are. Already seen WAS, Cribs and Editors n all have dodgy second/third albums, I'd stand through some stuff but not Enemy, Serj (why is Serj there when SOAD STILL havent been to leeds???), Get Cape, any of the middle day, or any of the last day except Feeder. Tenacious D? Fucking hell, thats low. How many actual songs do they have? 1. and it got old long ago. I'm not even going to mention Slipknot.
Blog is good. have faith.
PS take down the Oizo remix! D-José and MC Felipe will be rumbled!
