Obviously taking the reviewer out of the safe confines of his central belt amniotic sack did this poor little blinkered lowlander no good at all. I travelled from the far north of Scotland and attended a festival that had it all. The Blockheads and Wilco were great, whilst SAHB were astonishing (I've seen U2 and these guys were way better).
The Daily Record is a rag for the central belt, and has been producing piss-poor music reviews for decades. For serious music reviews, try any Scottish paper but the record. Any serious, educated Scottish person would say the same.

The Axis Reggae tent deserves a mention as being reggae as it is meant to be heard. Loud, and with great mixing DJs.

Hello Andrew.
Nice comments, think it's only fair (as I'm the reviewer from the Record) to reply. Firstly, I'm actually from the borders of Dumfriesshire from a wee village so the 'central belt' bollocks means nothing to me. Secondly, the review was very heavily edited due to space, not my choice and to my dismay, and the festival did actually get 4/5 which has been overlooked. And to close, you may or may not be aware but I'm the creator of The Solus Tent @ The Wickerman Festival, top that off with the fact that I've been helping the festival since 2004 not only as a journo which includes getting the word out to other people in media, but getting a sponsor, helping with the bands, doing Solus, doing stuff on where we host the fest forum and generally, take a lot of shit from total strangers, and various other things.

Nae worries.

Hey Chay,
Hope you get this email, but I'm hoping to speak to you regarding the Solus tent at The Wickerman Fest.
If you look at you'll get an idea what I do, but I'm on a mission to draw the contemporary original music scene in Scotland as much as I can anyway!
I'd really like to draw at The Wickerman, so if I can't contact you here, I'll try to contact you via the Record.
