Kula Shaker - they're a planary expansion of Francis Bacon, apparently.
Rocket From The Crypt - they're big, tattooed, scary and Tim reckons they could just be the future of rock 'n' roll.
dEUS - the Belgians with a little 'd' but a big 'EUS' talk to Nathan and Ben about their new album, new band members and new single.
Moby - with a new album of hardcore punk and a tour to promote, Dave and Tony spoke to the man who's mastered more musical styles than you'll find in your average issue of Mojo.
Tracy Bonham - she's small!! She's American!! She's not Alanis Morrissette!! Tim knows her PIN number!!
Flaming Lips - Drew's favourite band are The Flaming Lips. So he was well happy when he got to interview Wayne Coyne from the band and tell us all about it.
Chris Evans - Ginger Genius or Amber Arsehole?
Robbie Williams gets the Elliott "treatment".
- Friday at Reading, reviewed by Sam. Which means New Kingdom, Uresei Yatsura, Drugstore, Sebadoh and the like.
- Saturday at the festival we call "Reading", as told by Drew. So Sneaker Pimps, Jocasta, Garbage, and the quality Ben Folds Five will no doubt be reviewed.
- Sunday at (wait for it) Reading, according to Ben. And you know what HE thinks of Audioweb, The Posies, Moby, Lionrock and Underworld...
- Super Furry Animals
- Jo Whiley & Steve Lamacq
- John Peel
- Patrick from Strangelove
- Greenbelt is a big Christian festival, so Alison went along.
