Nightmare Before Christmas 2007, Saturday: The Aphex Twin

(Centre Stage)

The Cornwall sensation was headlining saturday night, playing music from laptops. To make it a bit more visually interesting there was something of a light show, and for the ladies two neds came out and danced onstage while an attractive lady filmed them with a camcorder. Mr Twin's set started off as something very straightforwardly dancey (eh, this is a good thing, given that dancing is fun). After a bit the beats got a bit fractured, making the music much harder to dance to. This was handy for those of us feeling a bit tired. In fact, so tired was I by this stage that I went to the back and sat in a comfy chair and dozed to the relaxing sounds of the Aphex Twin. Best festival ever!
