""There was some chatter in the Twitter-sphere about the comparison between HoP and LiveNation," said the AP journalist. "I'm wondering your reaction. And, what do you say to the cynics who say you have to be making bands pay and charging massive service fees to run Prog gigs in this country?"

Twang, sitting behind a desk in the cabin, picked up the microphone and delivered his message nearly 100 metres away to the press tent.

"Honestly, they're just f**king w**kers," Twang said. "I cannot be dealing with people like that. [Laughs, from the press tent - ed.] It justifies their own bone-idleness because they can't ever imagine applying themselves to anything in their lives. And it's easy for them to sit under a pseudo-name on Twitter and write that sort of s**t rather than get off their arses in their own life and apply themselves, and work hard at something and achieve something. And that's ultimately it."

The translator readied to deliver the message in 7/8, but before she could, Twang picked up the microphone and sent the final message to the cynics: "C**ts!"

I know nothing of this comparison between H.O.P. and Live Nation. I have ranted like this about Guilfest. Live Nation do Download and I know Andy Copping who runs it. I have the ultimate respect for Andy. He has worked so hard to get where he is now.

I have and do rant about how the 'cynics' sit on their pizza packed backsides, in front of a computer slagging off everything we try and do. Jerry Ewing gets the same thing. They are so full of apathetic venom, not surprising as on a computer they feel they are kings of the castle. We don't hear their mothers screaming upstairs because their dinner is ready and they've just had their 45th Birthday.

I have lost it at Guilfest when many, many bands I know have to pay over 1,500 to play a 30 min set in an unsigned tent in the bottom end (look I'm being restrained with my language) of a field. They then have to sell those tickets to get the money back. When you think that every unsigned band has to do this so it pays for the headliners & most of the festival.

The quote sounds about right but it is very important to put it all in the right context.

Probably one of the reason's I've been named the Ray Winstone of Prog.

That will be THE place to be at Christmas. Unless you are not too keen on Prog.

Is anybody here none too keen on Prog?

Keen on prog, but not these two.
I'll leave the tickets to those who appreciate them.
