In fairness to Cosmosis, this line-up is MUCH smaller, bands cheaper and the venue obviously doesn't need to take into account venue hire, bar etc...

GO ON BARRY HOGAN!

Yeah fair point. I imagine the Mary Chain weren't cheap

Is this Hogan in disguise??

If the disguise is a pair of glasses with a nose and tache attached.

So apparently this is Hogan himself working for Victoria Warehouse in a kind of 'work off your debts' deal?

Word is that this venue is a bit shit too?

Shame as this lineup really is superb.

My only experience was Cosmosis last yr and my memory of it wasn`t great ,the venue that is, a large concrete warren and pretty unwelcoming. A friend is trying to badger me into going to this, But I`m not a massive fan of Swans, line up is interesting and I do want to see Loop and The Fall but maybe not so much I`ll be travelling to Manchester, tickets are very reasonable it has to be said. Think I`ll wait and see what Cosmosis has to offer as I can't see Transformer being sold out.

You mention Hogan, is this the ATP fella?

I'm not the biggest fan of Swans on record.. but their live show has to be seen to be believed.

yep, Barry Hogan is the ATP fella and I gather he's behind this shindig. it's weird because the Victoria Warehouse is where the final ATP was going to take place until the plug was pulled.
