Downloading White Lies

Hello again!

Well, things have definitely changed since I last talked to you! I know, I know... It's been a while. I'm sorry. No really... I AM sorry! Hopefully things will change but for now, just be happy I'm here!

So, let's get down to business. The last time we spoke, I was talking about The Prodigy at Download Festival and last night, we had an update! Zane Lowe gave us the first set of announcements last night, here's the updated poster;

Now, I'm only going on the Friday - so I'm not so interested in Saturday or Sunday. However, I must admit that Saturday does look very sexy to say the least! Moving onto Friday though... I know what you're thinking. Chase and Status? Really? I honestly don't know what to think. On one hand, they're always great to see live but they tend to attract an audience of real dickheads, or as some people tend to call then; 'chavs'. Only time will tell if they really are a band that deserves to be on the download lineup.

Onto other musical news, less recent but still very important, I went to see White Lies headline Wembley Arena on the 17th December. It may be one of the best shows I've ever seen them do. Alongside hits, such as 'Death', 'Farewell To The Fairground' and 'The Power And The Glory', they treated the crowd to rarer songs 'Taxidermy' and 'Come Down'. With an explosive finish (no pun intended), it truly was an amazing night to remember.

That's all for now, I will try to keep up to date with you on all the latest goings on but in the meantime, I leave you with this rather humorous Facebook group; http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bottling-Chase-and-Status-at-Download-2012/317481051630028.

May The Fuck be with you. Until next time,
