Only half a day for us due to the requirement having to be in North Wales by nightfall, this meant Sham 69 and Jello Biafra both remain unticked on that very short ‘Bands Left To See Before I Die’ List. I wasn’t gonna do a review of this final day, as only seeing a couple of bands doesn’t really warrant calling it a festival review – but hey… it’s my website..!

To some, this Rebellion weekend is their one outing a year; reliving their youth, having a holiday and shame upon them really, as
1/ They need to scrape their fat arses off the settee and see a ‘new’ live band once in a while; not just crawl out of the woodwork, dye their hair specially and dust down the old leather jacket for the occasion.
2/ Bands need people to see them, they need exposure and
3/ You only have one life, LIVE IT…!

Damned
Day Two in the Rebellion House and Neil’s liver is already complaining… I needed to find a hairy dog (‘Plenty in Blackpool’ shouted the heckler at the back!). Tim felt the same and we needed to be indecently assaulted.

Wow, writing this five days on from Thursday and it seems like a lifetime ago. I now truly understand the meaning of the word Shellshocked… The dictionary will explain that it is a loss of the senses from psychological strain during prolonged engagement in warfare. It should also have a second definition: loss of the senses from psychological strain during prolonged engagement in Rebellion Festival.

First thoughts were “it’s not gonna be a cheap weekend!”. Cheapest city centre digs I could find were £40 a night, the train was gonna be £80 return so I opted for the gruelling Megabus journey – 2+ hours longer each way, but I told myself that at £30 return that would be like working for more than the minimum wage for merely sitting on my arse, so Megabus it was, and Dawn had paid my £42 gig ticket for Xmas box so it was “Brum here we come” . Slowly, very very slowly.
