Football, injuries, excess and Mogwai..

One day over, two to go. The sun is still blessing the site with its more than welcome presence, and we have witnessed life affirming sets from the likes of the Super Furry Animals, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Stereolab and Hood.

Friday night saw all the bands out in force, and under the influence. Mogwai spent the whole night hanging out with our very own picture editor Neil Thomson, the pair being spotted in the early hours headed for the beach to partake in a little, ahem, night swimming.

Saturday morning, as the hangovers kicked in, was the perfect time for a little celebrity 5-a-side football.


nme.com thrashed Sigor Ros 3-1 in what could only be described as a whitewash, while Mogwai, for all their Glasweigan grit, lost miserably 4-1 to a frankly weak looking side with a girl in goal. nme.com have drawn Snow Patrol in the next round tomorrow, who rumour has it are one of the strongest sides in the tournament, so things are not looking too good.

Things are also not looking very good for the drummer from Alfie. Playing for the Twisted Nerve first team yesterday he fell, and broke the fall with his wrist. Having spent the next 24 hours with his arm in a sling, their performance tomorrow is increasingly in doubt. Muppet. Until tomorrow…
