There’ll be Pixies at the bottom of Fairlee Road’s gardens

The number of groups appearing at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival that I really want to see is increasing. To add to the fabulous Arcadian Kicks, my must-hears now include 60s group The Zombies (whose album Odessey & Oracle is a regular on my iTunes playlist), and the absolutely phenomenal Pixies, who I last saw live at Reading in 1990. It’s been reason enough to dust off my copy of their album Bossanova.

Also returning are Paolo Nutini, who had a very good live set at a previous festival, and The Australian Pink Floyd Show, who I’ll give a second chance in the hope that I can stay awake… or that I can enjoy the experience horizontal.

Oh yes, the festival site is off Fairlee Road in Newport, hence the daft headline. I’m almost certain the local rag will use something similar…
