Just had this “Gnostic Biography” of the Butthole Surfers delivered yesterday. Should be interesting. πŸ˜€

Neil Robertson one for the library

Fans of The Fall have read it. Obviously.

Yeah that's a class book, one of the better music biographies for certain.

Awesome book. x

No! I didn't!

Guy-Dominique Sciemment tu me le gardes au chaud pour la fin du confinement en 2025?

My second time reading it! I’m actually halfway through at the moment.

1st night of the 100 Club Punk special/festival on Monday 20th Sept 1976.... Sex Pistols The Clash Siouxsie & the Banchees Subway Sect... Next night would have been good too, with Buzzcocks & Damned both playing... with others.

Ah Johnny Rotten. Public Image Limited, ever played Rockaway? If not, they’re my bet for headliners in 2021.

Me (the blondie), on the front of the same stage when I was a roadie for the Meteors in 1981. Bassist Nigel Lewis in the background.

Ramones supported by Talking Heads at Aylesbury friars in 1977

Without a doubt would be Talking Heads’ ‘Stop Making Sense’ tour in 1983 πŸ™Œ

This.....

Maybe the Pistols 1st gig at Free Trade Hall, Manchester or I would love to have seen John Foxx era Ultravox! back in the day or maybe The Stooges at The ICA or the final Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars gig at Hammersmith Odeon.

Led Zep at ANY gig in the 70s πŸ‘

Now that would be something to look forward to at Rockaway beach!!!

Joy Division at Walthamstow or ANYWHERE or PIL at The Rainbow on Christmas Day 1978

Stay safe lovely people. Rockaway beach 2021 is going to be one hell of a party after this!

Fair enough

I saw this and thought "oh no, they're cancelling too!!" Then I read it. Phew!! We will definitely need RB next January! I was going to say that 2020 will be a year to forget but how can I when you put on such a great festival at the very beginning of 2020?! It was all downhill after, though. Still listening to Fontaines DC, Nova Twins, Rascalton and Our Girl among others to keep my spirits up!! Take care everyone x

For me, I’d quite like to hear about who is lined up, would help some people decide whether or not to come....

Maybe I’m a bit selfish but I’d love some names added to what all we have to look forward to in January 2021. Also wondering if you have any footage from previous years you can make us nostalgic with πŸ™ŒπŸ˜. Keep up the good hard work guys, keep clean and as always, be the festival others should look up to!

It would be really cool if you had any footage from previous Rockaway that we could see?

What the hell? Now is the best time to reveal the acts!!

Fair do's and a good call. As for what you can do over the next month.... just push some good live music videos our way to make up for the gigs we are currently all missing. Clips like this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeVzbp3ZzOM

I disagree - I think that giving us something to look forward to now would be a great idea...

I’d like to hear a Rez/Popcorn mashup please

Keep safe Rockaway Beach, we will definitely need to see you in January! What would be good over the next month is help finding some of the online gigs being put on. So far I’ve seen Jim Bob, Miles Hunt, Baxter Dury and Frank Turner, but I’ve missed a few too.

I'd like to hear some of spiritualized at Rockaway beach if there's anything knocking about

Maybe play some of the rockaway interviews here if they were being taped? Jim Reid and Johnny Cale ones were great this year

Thanks for keeping in touch RB. Some footage of bands and interviews from previous years would be much appreciated.

Give us something to look forward to, please release some names. Nearly all of my gigs are cancelled this year. πŸ’”
