The Sounds

Yes, he is winking at us by Joanna Orland & Isla MC I’m rather ashamed to admit it now that I’ve seen them in action, but I’d never heard of The Sounds before this year’s Roskilde festival.

Roskilde Festival 2007

From Roskilde, with Love Mud Roskilde, Denmark by Joanna Orland We survived the torrential downpour, the pools of mud and the drunken Scandinavians.

Roskilde Festival 2006

by Joanna Orland & Isla MC JOANNA: I wish I was sitting in a dusty field as I write this review. This was our second year at Roskilde Festival in Denmark. The line up was bigger and badder. The weather was hotter and colder. The men were prettier and uglier. What an AWESOME festival. The […]

Junior Senior

by Joanna Orland & Isla MC We couldn’t have Senior because he was indisposed, so we were asked if Junior would do. We had a lovely chat with Junior backstage at the greatest festival of 2005, also known as Roskilde. What more could we ask for? (perhaps a light shave off of the blonde tache?) […]

Martin Pelland: The Dears

by Joanna Orland & Isla MC Following our hugely successful interview with The Dears back in February, we decided to check in once again at Roskilde to see how the past few months had been for them.
