Sat 11 Aug – Field Day 2007
We had high hopes for Field Day and I think they were mostly fulfilled. Sure there were ridiculous queues for drink/loos/food, but in the end I didn't really want to drink too much and managed to see all that I wanted to - mostly from very close up.
First came a lot of sitting around enjoying Tea & Tarts, beer and sunshine. Then was a bit of Chromeo
, who got us quite jazzed up and ready for more dancing. Some VIP beer smuggling by ywain
meant we were well stocked for Erol Alkan
. He played Phantom Pt. II
which was a taster of things to come later.
We had to quit early (sadly) to go and see (much happier) Matthew Dear
. Getting centre-front, we had the opportunity to watch the man who is, quite frankly, God
set up alongside bassist and drummer. We did some none-too-subtle worshipping and danced and sang our hearts out. Several songs from Asa Breed (including the almost indecently funky Neighborhoods
) were interspersed with a couple of greatest hits from his previous albums - Tide
and Dog Days
