Portmerion is an Italianate 1920s village in North Wales, film set to 60s TV series The Prisoner, and well worth a visit if you're ever in the area. Especially this weekend. The Number 6 festival is being held there with a line-up that looks like it was put together from a Bagging Area playlist including New Order, Primal Scream, Spiritualized, Richard Hawley, Death In Vegas and, wait for it, Andrew Weatherall's A Love From Outer Space.
Obviously, I'm not able to go. We're at Alton Towers for a charity family weekend with the MPS Society (the charity that looks after children with MPS diseases and their families. That's us). I mean, the charity weekend will be good and everything, and we get to go in the theme park and use the Splash Landings water park, and it's great to see other families who live with the disease just as we do, and everything, but... well, you know. To add insult to injury at least one of my brothers is going. And a friend of mine is going. And he's borrowed our tent. Grrrrr. Curses.
Here's Death In Vegas remixed by Two Lone Swordsmen, a belting TLS remix.
