We may as well get the obligatory mud mention out of the road first: wading through mire at the new Splendour site was unavoidable this year, but, as usual, it was nothing even a standard pair of gumboots couldn't combat. 
Day one saw Dune Rats urging all in attendance to scream 'fuck' as loud as possible, because “we're on the radio... Hey mum!” The ecstatic, beach-ball bouncing...

“We’re just in the living room, man. The finals are on, so we’re catching as much ball as possible in between – and during – today’s interviews.” It’s a frank – but not entirely unexpected – admission from Nathan Williams, who forms one third of the creative core of American band Wavves.

Life's pretty fucking sweet for Nathan Williams. Prematurely thrust into the spotlight after generating buzz through the brilliantly overblown home recordings of Wavves and Wavvves, it seemed like it had all had come to an explosive end after an MDMA-fuelled onstage meltdown. To his credit, Wavves bounced back, and recruited bandmates from the infinitely more tragic Jay Reatard - avoiding a...
