Winter Wanderland - Xfm

That Xfm got it right with their Winter Wonderland bashment at Brixton Academy in London. What a cracking line up spread over two nights. Ok, it is easy to put on a micro festival in London near Christmas because most bands are slowing their tours etc but, this was good.

We went on the sunday night and saw Editors, Maximo Park, Kooks, Hard-Fi and Dead 60's - had to leg it before the Karzee Chefs - but i heard them on the wireless the day after...pretty rockin.

Then i heard a bit of the monday's gig when Richard Ashcroft played....crikey! That man had the entire Academy in the palm of his hand - just him and his guitar...proper.

I thought Hard-Fi were pretty good live, Maximo Park were more 'stadium' than i wanted and Editors were best. All in all a quality night out - thanks Grozz and Lozz for the squeeze action.

Thanks to Xfm for sorting out a successful (totally sold out in 16mins!!!) night of top caliber bands. Great atmosphere - something to do with drinking for 7 hours?? - and the right way of giving something to the Shelter charity and 'the kids'! Maybe a few other broadcasters could carry the batton too?
