A&M: Stimulus was pretty ridiculous this year. It was like a carnival mixed with a Halloween party that was mixed with a rave inside a warehouse. Actually that's exactly what it was. The new venue had a great set up allowing each artist installation to go big without clashing with each other. The Family Funktion could be playing one of their great sitar jams in one room and you wouldn't know it if you were in the room next door watching a 1920's paper boy spit milk into a bucket from a stationary bike.
