View Full Version : BBC Radio 1 - Big Weekend (Bangor)

Seeing as I'm waiting for a programme to run on intervals, I've been watching some of the live video highlights from the Radio 1 Big Weekend in Bangor.

I've watched the Lostprophets, Biffy Clyro, Paramore, YM@6 and 30 Seconds to Mars - I've seen each of these bands live before (both video and at gigs) and they're all pretty consistently good live, yet listening to the live sets from the weekend, they all sound bloody awful!

I've seen quite a few terrible live bands in the past, but these bands AREN'T terrible live - how have the BBC achieved making ALL of them sound terrible?!

I'm aware opinions on the individual bands will vary, but I'm referring purely to the quality in replicating their sound live - the BBC footage seems to suggest NONE of them managed. I don't believe it for a second!
