Wasted Punk Fest
August 10 - 13, 2006
August 10 - 13, 2006
Here we go ... I am still in the UK, Manchester to be precise. I thought of going to Windermere for the day, but it looks rainy on the west coast so I am staying in the city and do my work instead of wandering around ... i.e. starting the Wasted report.
Of course, no pictures will go here until I am back home (tomorrow night), upload them onto comp, review, resize, upload onto a server etc. So photos shall be up by the end of this week. I took literally hundreds of them, for sure many will be crap, but it will still take some time to go through them and select "the best".
Having been in Blackpool, there will of course be also pix of the locality, like the tower, sea, clouds, hovering seagulls (it was really windy out there and the poor buggers had problems especially with the take off), oh yes and also the big wheel on the pier, and the piers, and the sun-bathers (it was mostly cold and windy) .... simply, captures of the holidays in the sun. You will not understand Sex Pistols properly until you come over to Blackpool !
Now, a small introductory note and some technical comparison with the last year Wasted fest in Morecambe (not far from Blackpool anyway).
As some of you know from my previous inconsistent Wacken report, I arrived from Wacken (the weekend before the Wasted started) with high fever and was diagnosed with lymphatic system inflammation and high-dosed with antibiotics Zinnat 500 mg ... Now this is not of real interest until you read the side-effects and rare side-effects ... For detailed description of those you may actually not wish to go here. ;D ... not being used to antibiotics I have developed most of these symptoms in 2 days after starting the treatment - especially those that create a very special bondage between you and the rest-room. That may suggest how I felt during my very first days at Blackpool ... Fortunately, there was that Loyd pharmacy at hand and so I plundered it with kind consultations from the pharmacist.
Having said that I actually did not miss a thing during Wasted ! Well, apart those that were in direct collision / parallel shows, but that is a legitimate miss.
To be cont. over
