keep on trucking

heh. i completely forgot that i'd sent a late pleading application to steward at the sold-out ninth truck festival, the weekend before my birthday (end of july) in abingdon, oxfordsire.

imagine my joy and delight to find a message in my inbox this morning telling me that i've got a place.

now that's sorted, anyone want to join me and run a zine stall? i'll pay your fee..... ;)

edit: sweet god. all i knew of the line-up was that thomas truax might be playing.
just found this via drowned in sound:

"We're awfully pleased to announce the first raft of bands for this year's Truck Festival

As official media partners and programme-makers for this year's Truck Festival, we're insanely happy to be the first to give you the lowdown on the initial raft of bands.

This year also sees the involvement of our friends at BBC 6music, another fantastic string to Truck's bow as the best alt. radio station in the country. We'll be getting down and dirty with them and between us will have the whole festival covered in our own unique styles.

Truck Festival tickets have well-and-truly sold out now, meaning that the not-for-profit festival can benefit more charities than ever, this year donating to a whopping forty-seven.

So, without further ado, please find the first bands to be announced for Truck Festival 2006. Also be reminded that there is more to come, including a rather special headliner for Saturday night...

What a line-up that is! Really wish I had speculated and got tix early. *so very jealous* 65dos are excellent live, and I'm in love with The Organ at the moment.

Sounds like Wales was fun :)
Good luck with the move!

Oh, and I'm glad you're liking the music page :)

zoe, might be poeting at truck - not checked the date for clashes yet - really should put things in my diary its bound to be double booked. and trying to blag a corporate watch/climate camp stall too. so might see ya there, and if they don't give me a stall - I'd be up for your offer of shared stall space

right - any other 'ziners/others who fancy the idea of a shared stall, give me a shout... i am the queen of making the most of a limited display space.

do check Chris T-T there, saw him last year and he's great. Radical politics but an emotional softie. more of that sort of thing, I say.
