Well wot a wicked weekend that was – good times to remember! Mutate related humans are now crash-landing back to earth. Big ups to all of you who came and down saw the Unfairground and thanks to everyone who made it possible – not least Joe Rush and the Mutoids!

The Mutoid Waste Comapny, Joe, Wreckage, Sam, Mauritzio, Fang, Lyle, Bez, Sharkey, Strummerville, Obey, Dotmasters, Dead Leg, Dr D, David Walker, The Baroness Carrie von Reichardt, dog faced Teddy Baden…

…who let him out?

We had Thom Yorke playing a secret set in the Aeroplane (pictured top) plus wicked resident DJs in the Rebel Sonix/Ross Allen/DJ Jawa/Motive style. Sunday at 5am was a moment – but then so was Saturday 9am, Friday… Thursday…. Monday… all day everyday – what day of the week was it when? Blast off!

…good times and good people as someone once said. And finally… the biggest props go to Liam, with out whom none of this is ever possible, and of course Garfield, Dhughal, Charlie, Phil G, Rhys and last but never least Luke:

Oh (Columbo style) –  and one more thing, support the Robin Hood Tax – it’s still a no brainer!

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 13, 2010 by jack lomax

Here’s Packa’s Dragon at our Glasto warm up party, it will be making it’s first full outing at the festival, complete with body, wings and tail – fear the flaming beast!

If you’re coming to Glasto then don’t forget to pay us a visit, we’re in The Unfairground with the Mutoids and Bez and Mani – it’ll be back to the old school festival vibes in our corner! Map here

Secret DJs aplenty in our corner, with Rebel Sonix (pictured) keeping their hands on the DJ/VJ tiller – plus what promises to be a mind blowing performance from RizMC’s MICroscope interactive visual extravaganza. You might know Riz from his lead roles in Chris Morris’s Terrorist Comedy ‘4 Lions’, Chalie Brooker’s ‘Dead Set’ and Peter Kozminski’s ‘Britz’ – all of which were exceptional dramas – Riz is a real talent AND a sick MC, his new project involves crowd interatcion and a story that will leave you  questioning your very ears!  Check this Losers Dan Hiller video I posted a while back:

There will be all kinds of giant Mutoid sculpture and brand new Street Art – even new work from Obey! More on that in next few days…

…is definately getting there! Nearly ready for the Elephant stampede. The video explains Carrie and Nick’s plans… There are going to be two in the Mutate herd as Joe Rush has just signed the foster parent papers for a new born baby sculpture to keep Phoolan company on his mission to raise awareness for the plight of these mighty mammals!
