While camped out at Oxegen over the weekend, The State team grabbed a couple of radio presenters and a journalist/blogger to join them in taking stock of the festival thus far. Our discussion took in: Oxegen as the new European festival, the line-up’s good and bad points, someone defending the Counting Crows, why nobody turned up for Richard Hawley, Paul Heaton and Cat Power, Aphex Twin’s mental set on Friday, a look at how the new and Irish bands got on and the inevitable, Amy Winehouse.
Around the Oxegen bench on Sunday @ 6pm we had:
Alison Curtis – Today FM radio presenter every Monday to Thursday from 10.00pm to midnight and Sunday for The Last Splash.
SinÃ©ad Ni Mhorda – Phantom FM Access All Areas presenter.
John Walshe – State editor makes his first appearance on the podcast. Harbours secret Counting Crows obsession.
Phil Udell – State editor and hater of all things Winehouse.
Niall Byrne – Assistant editor and lover of all things obscure. Apparently. Also known as nialler9. Lower-case “n” please.
