Just got back from the ATP weekend curated by Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Not suprisingly I had a great time, despite being billetted in a rather grotty, run down part of the site. Not so much a festival site, it was more like an abandoned Soviet labour camp.
I was looking forward to see Throbbing Gristle, an all time favourite group of mine. Unfortunately a few weeks ago Genesis announced he was no longer touring but it looked like they would still play under the moniker of X-TG. Even sadder news was Peter Christopherson passing away in his sleep last week. Needless to say the show did not go ahead. Instead the organizers played Throbbing Gristle tracks on the Pavillion PA at the time slot they would have played. It was sad to hear their music whilst the stage remained empty and unlit.
