Prestatyn 2007 a week after catch up
Just thought better add something about last weeked before it fades into the murky depths of my memory.
Due to work etc it turned out to be a short one for me, as only made it for the Saturday nighter and then due to lift etc didn't get there till late on
Only got there as acts were starting and so only caught the end of Phillip Mitchell and the begining of Dee Dee Sharp but what heard and saw was top drawer stuff.
As always one thing about Prestatyn is the amount of catch ups and was great to meet some old and not seen for a fair bit types along with finally bumping into some for first time. Fair bits of news of going ons etc rare soul wise and will wack up later.
Main room, own view on the Saturday Nighter in the main room after the acts was that it was one of the better recent ones, had ears on plays most of the time and sounds like Detroit Sounds Of Friction, Floresecent Smogg, Mac Staten, Nurons, Teadrops - sbi, My Proposal, Voices inc, Spartans were just a few that tugged me ear, as also heard a whole hatfull of current/recent plays such as mello souls, joseph webster, king moses, blah blah.. do have to say bit lost with some of criticisms of the same niter that have read but ... shrug, all i say is Detroit Sounds of Friction
As said own view on whole event a bit limited as only there for a short while, apart from nighter caught a bit of radio during the staring at walls phase, and then had a bit of mellow football watching on sunday before jumping on train back home.
Bit limited but dword had from muckers at the weekend and since is Soultown room in Queen Vic on friday went really well, same for lifeline room on saturday afternoon , Andy Dyson and Mick H's spots on Friday nighter also got big thumbs up. along with the same for the Sunday Night Conns session in Queen Vic.
Anyway all a bit brief and that, can read more (and much better) views all over site, articles section, on the busy forum lookback thread here (check out Stevie Catos review and some great lookbacks from most of the various rooms) along with words form those involved with most of the various arenas.
