I'm sure Future Islands would have featured in the top 5, but by the time I got to the Mistletone stage it was pretty much packed to the very back and I couldn't see anything. They really should have been on the Park stage.

On the left hand side about 2 metres back from the barrier. I saw you when Pinkeye jumped into the crowd near the end of the set but then you disappeared into the surge and we ran off to Lagwagon.

Yeah, but the only way I'd ever put 28 Days in a festival top 5 is if the festival was just 28 Days and four other bands.

And even at the height of their cheese, 28 Days never wrote anything as groanworthy as Second-Class Citizen.

I saw a few minutes of Fear Factory. When I heard the vocals I thought I was hearing a drunk sing along out of key.
