Everyone knows that The List is the leading magazine in its field. Especially when that field is at Balado near Kinross, and it’s time for T in the Park.

Those big names at T in the Park have plenty to say for themselves. Here's just some of the things they’ve told The List in recent months.
'The guy from the record company said we wouldn’t be able
to beat the bar bill of £800 the Super Furry Animals had rung up. We did £1200, but
I think £200 of that was asprin the next day.'
Richard Jones, Stereophonics
’Gay Dad is a wake up call. We’ve got power, energy, drive and belief and with one fell swoop we will wipe out boy bands and all those who don’t care about making a difference.’ Cliff Jones, Gay Dad
w. ’Being female with ,4? two other guys, people assumed I I was I was singing a, someone else’s songs and that is so frustrating. I don't want people thinking I am just ornamental.' Dot Allison
’This is rock ’n’ roll, and I think that a lot of people take it way too seriously. Please, come on. It's not like - we're writing Moby Dick or anything here.’ Huey, Fun Lovin’ Criminals
’I’ve always had paranoia. I think it’s probably the result of moving about a lot when I was younger; I went to something like thirteen different schools. I’m not looking over my shoulder all the time, but I do worry a lot' Roddy Woomble, Idlewild
’Gary Glitter, The Sweet, I\/Iud were just a bunch of lager louts running about in their mothers' underwear. We’re definitely not trying to reinvent.’

the party's comin' out.' DJSneak
