Yesterday the Vans Warped Tour made its first return to London since 1999. We didn’t go. We do know some people who did go, and their reactions on Twitter ranged from “Oh my God! Onesies everywhere!” to “Lasted just an hour at Warped”. We know that (some) of us here at Thrash Hits have a reputation as being surly No Fun Club-types, but by gosh, did we not see this as a challenge to make a listenable Sunday Spotify Slaylist about it.

Oh God, did we try.

Well, this is a turn up for the books – the Vans Warped Tour is going to be coming to the UK after nearly a decade and a half of absence. Even though at this stage there’s no information concrete information regarding the line-up, ticket price, exact date beyond “November” or venue beyond “it’s in London”, the fact that it’s coming here at all is still something of a surprise.

Vice’s ‘No Sleep Till…’ series comes to a close with Trash Talk risking life and limb on frozen roads and skateboarding. Obviously.

Vice’s No Sleep Till… documentary series comes to an end today, with the final instalment focussing on one of California’s finest international punk exports of the last five years: Trash Talk. Vice follow the band as they support Every Time I Die on their last UK tour, which obvious means a) carnage, and b) destruction, and c) skateboarding.

Rip Curl Boardmasters festival is Europe’s biggest surf and skate and music festival and its hitting Newquay on 4-10 August 2008, this year in association with Relentless energy drink and Vans, who are giving some swag away.

You can watch the world’s best surfers and skateboarders and stuff during the day and then go watch wicked bands like The Ghost Of A Thousand, Johnny Truant and Gallows in the evening. And bands like Kids In Glass Houses and Pigeon Detectives too. There’s something for everyone.

You’ve got to remember that because there will be loads of surfers, there will be a load of buffed, tanned bodies floating around so it’s probably the sexiest festival in the UK. It beats the tens of thousands of fat, hairy dudes that descend upon Donington every June for Download Festival.
