    Bangkok Rocks!.... music festival

    Here's a few pics of the Bangkok Rocks 2006 festival.... I only went on the Saturday. Oasis were headlining but Liam was having a stroppy day and sounded shit.. Best on the day for entertainment was Ian Brown (even if he did wear a pink shell-suit)..

    Anybody know if they had one in 2007?.. I never saw one advertised.

    Anyway, here were a few Thai bands starting from about midday but I only caught a glimpse of them because there were no beer stalls inside the stage area... It was sponsored by 100 Pipers if I remember right, and they had monopolised the stage area with one measly stall dishing out whiskey...

    The stage area... there were 3 price areas - I was trying to impress a gik and I wanted a good view so I went for the dearer ones up near the stage..



    The tolilets were a pleasant surprise... These certainly beat the shitters that I had seen at festivals in the UK:





    First farang band were a cheese munching lot from Belgium that went by the name of Deus:





    Best on the day: Ian Brown was next up...



    Ian Brown again:



    Franz Ferdinand were next up... All their stuff sounded the same..:




    Then the headliners... Oasis.. They were OK but Liam Gallacher decided he was having a tantrum day... His singing was shit and he had a go at one of the sound guys.... The Thai girl I was with asked "why he just stand there... he do nothing"... I told her that was his act:






    Noel Gallacher did a song or three also:





    That was that for the Saturday - I didn't go on the Sunday and can't remember who was playing...

    Bangkok Rocks! wooooo.....

    ^ My mate went to see that one in Aberdeen. He said Ian Brown was awful and all out of tune that night and the place was full of scummy 'Neds'...

    He certainly was OK in Bangkok and got the crowd going the most...

    Ian Brown can get away with a pink shell suit, not many can.

    If I recall correctly last years festival was called off because the changes in booze laws caused the sponser to pull out, but not too sure on that.

    And for anyone that's interested I think Muse are playing end of November in Bangkok.

    Funny that, the changes in the booze laws......as usual, the furore died down and nothing happened.

    Good pics. Just what Bangkok was always lacking; a decent, internationalised live music scene.
