It looks like I sat through my first earthquake last night. Aparantly 4.8 on the Richter scale and centred around Birmingham, it just felt like a large truck going past the house, or ten pints of beer. What excitement Pip.

Well it's a bit late, but I do want to talk about 100 Acres that was on in Longstanton the Saturday before last. The first festival of it's kind in Cambridge it was a rausing success despite there being a dance tent. Well it keeps the Pacmen happy.

Alabama 3, the headliners, were every bit as good as expected, though the American accents started to slip back towards Edinburgh and Brixton towards the end. Cornershop were great as well, despite the lead singer's seeming boredom with the whole event. They played a fantastic sitar jam at the end of their set which blew us all away.

A couple of new bands there seem to be worth watching out for. Other Garden (who impressed me with an impromptu cover version of Lazy Sunday Afternoon) and Silverfish.

Hopefully the festival will continue next year.
