Truck On at Brookes 2007

The main Truck site at Steventon has been overwhelmed by floods - BUT the bands are playing Sat 21st & Sun 22nd July at Oxford Brookes Student Union instead! Festival rescheduled to 22nd Sept.
Hill Farm in Steventon is underwater, Brookes Student Union isn't. So it is that Saturday afternoon sees Stornoway expressing their relief at avoiding the smell of cows in the barn and starting off the weekend with an amusing and energetic set. It's not Truck, of course (that'll be going ahead in September - all tickets still valid), but the spirit of Truck was everywhere - perhaps most of all in KTB's singalong on the small stage. Music alternated between the front and back of the venue, and as it combined acts from different stages the result was a very eclectic mixture. Piney Gir and Cat Martino entranced everyone, and to finish on the main stage the Brian Jonestown Massacre played to a rapturous reception, quickly switching into DJ Fresh's beats to end the night.

It's amazing that this could be organised at such short notice and go so smoothly, a testament to the determination of Truckers. Between the spontaneity and the quantity of good music this was also the best event I've ever been to at Brookes. Sunday looks like being even better - Danny Wilson of Grand Drive fame couldn't be fitted in last night, so he's been added to the bill.
