THE SEIZURES / THE THIN KIDS AT PADDINGTON FAIR 5-06-10

The third annual Paddington Fair, which happens at the park down the road from my house and is a small celebration of the area in which I live. It was a really nice afternoon, there was even a sausage sizzle and I bought two. Suburb pride ya'll.


THE SEIZURES



There is only one word to describe The Seizures set and that word is 'sick'. Featured an appearance by enigmatic local genius Henry Mills on a mysterious noise belt machine no doubt invented by himself.


THE THIN KIDS



Everett True of The Thin Kids sums up his experience (courtesy of facebook):

"played at on open fair Paddington festival today. think I totally confused all the louche grunge heads stuck in an early 90s (anti-) fashion timewarp by being a) English, b) really fucking old, as old as my mum man and c) quite pop actually.
Fuck the kids man."

I think that's a little harsh but I enjoyed it, despite being a hardened Deadnotes fan myself. This could be due to being mentally destroyed and hungover from the night before or maybe I was just glad to be out of the house.

ha ha ha ha...i love the everett true comment :) that's kinda why i chose them, also for the fact that i recently heard a 17yr old 'musician' ask who Pink Floyd were...that was a scary moment. we have to keep mixing the old with the new. can't forget the past. can't think that it hasn't been done before, and often better. blah blah blah. thanks for coming matt, maybe you can come to the 'community meeting' that i am going to call to see how we can keep it going ;) x
