Is festival booking season, I was reminded of this today whilst reading the Metro on the tube and spotting an ad for Lovebox, which has improved immeasurably from the shite Groove Armarda on repeat borefest of Clapham Common to the cool East London version which features the super gay Sunday oral aural excitement featuring Horse Meat Disco, Gutter Slut, Azari & iii and the Rapture.

I went to Sonar 2 years ago and amongst the amazing performances I saw during that 5 day sleep deprived bender of a weekend was a certain Claude von Stroke. I had managed to miss my flight to Barca, had had to go straight into a testosterone soaked Irish bar to meet my friends (all girls) to watch England under perform in the Coupe de Monde live from S.A. Little did I know that my evening would end on an ear piercing set from Mr v Stroke which basically changed my view of what techno and Sonar was that year. I’d post a picture of my disheveled state but it would plant certain assumptions amongst the reader’s mind….
