im just interested in who everyone wants to play and there are far too many threads on the old board! maybe not super headliner groups just ones you would love to see

for me its:

Arcade Fire
i really love funeral and their new stuff sounds really good, plus they put on an amazing live show.

Soulwax (nite versions)
i saw these guys before in a tent and it was one of the most intense, amazing musical experiences ever. they woud make a brilliant sahara headliner.

MEW
ever since i heard and the glass handed kites i have been addicted to them, i imagine they would put on an incredible show too.

anyway, thats my two cents, whats yours :)

Portishead, Air, something with Damon Albarn in it (Blur/Gorillaz/TGTBATQ).

The Shins: They've come through a couple of times over the years. This would be an ideal place and environment to see them.

Morrissey: He would be a great presesnce on the main stage.

Paul Weller: Coachella is the place for surprises and reunions. Not only would it be great to see Paul but even better if they had a Jam reunion.

Bosco

nice pick with Soulwax! I would like to see them alot too!

but here are mine:

The Chemical Brothers: Im a super fanboy whos never seen them live, new album out sometime this year.

Portishead: A fantasic combination of hip hop, jazz, and blues. Their music is so good its creepy.

A Tribe Called Quest: My favorite Hip Hop group, who I regret missing play live this past September. We got the Jazz, We got the Jazz.

Rage Against The Machine (I know thats 4) got into them after their breakup, a reunion I would love to see.

I think electronic acts returning every couple of years isnt such a bad thing. The tough one is getting good electronic headliners because the rest sort themselves out usually.

CuervoPH
01-17-2007, 09:22 PM
The National
The Hold Steady (but they're playing in Baltimore in March, so I can catch them then)
and I liked the Portishead and A Tribe Called Quest mentions above, but I'll throw in Electric President to be different (unless a Talking Heads reunion was somehow possible, which it isn't)

THE HIVES- so good, so hard, so loud, so Coachella


THE FLAMING LIPS- the visual/musical spectacle that you wont forget.+ They havent properly headlined a fest yet....nows the time.


THE ORB- I'm not even a big fan but my buddies would quit their jobs and come to Coachella if these guys made a return.+ my buds said there was some issue the year that orb played. like they got cut off or ran out of time er sumthin. but I guess the crowd and the ORB were both visibly pissed! this is a good year to make it up to them and us and you C0VCHE77V

sighlent
01-19-2007, 12:56 AM
The Arcade Fire - They've put on one of the most passionate and involved performances I've ever seen from a traditional band.

Radiohead - I don't think this needs explanation

The Smashing Pumpkins - I doubt they'll be ready by then though

Bjork - Cause she evades me everytime she tours and I still haven't seen her.

BTW, here are my three (in no particular order):
1. Interpol (missed them last time)
2. P.J. Harvey (haven't seen her since '95; a perfect fit for Coachella)
3. Morrissey (always wanted to see him live)

reverse psychology. they censor words and phrases we think won't play, but its to get us to think that so we don't expect them to play, but they probably will play even though we think they won't, but if they make us think they won't, maybe they will or maybe they won't, and maybe we think they will, but they might not because they have gone to so much trouble to make us think they won't, but they may have thought of that, which means, they will, but they might have thought of that too, so maybe they won't, so what they are really doing is making us think they will play by making us type in who we think will play, who maybe won't play, because they might have thought of that, and they might have thought of us thinking that, which means we are just rats in a circular maze, or rather, just me

Ben Kweller: I can't believe I haven't seen his name pop up on more lists! He rocks live, and seeing him at Coachella would seriously make me peeeee. . .

BRMC: Coachella would be a perfect place for them - short set list, so no room for them to do the boring "jam" session bit - just straight up rockin'!

Don Van Vliet (born Don Glen Vliet on January 15, 1941) is an American musician and painter, best known by the pseudonym Captain Beefheart. His musical work was mainly conducted with a rotating assembly of musicians called The Magic Band, which was active between the mid-1960s and the early 1980s. Van Vliet was chiefly a singer and harmonica player, occasionally playing saxophone, bass clarinet and keyboards. His compositions are characterized by their odd mixtures of shifting time signatures and by their surreal lyrics, while Van Vliet himself is noted for his dictatorial approach to his musicians and for his enigmatic relationship with the public.

The Magic Band's early output was rooted in blues but soon began to draw on additional influences. 1969's Trout Mask Replica takes cues from free jazz and contemporary experimental composition. Frustrated with a lack of commercial success, and fed up with Van Vliet's paranoia and dictatorial nature, the group disbanded in 1974. After a brief flirtation with more conventional rock music — resulting in two albums that he has since disowned — Van Vliet formed a new Magic Band with a group of younger musicians and produced three albums that revisited the eccentricities of his earlier work. Van Vliet's music attracted a devoted following and his influence on fellow musicians, particularly those of the punk and New Wave movements, has been described as "incalculable."[1]

Van Vliet retired from music in the early 1980s to devote himself to painting and he has since made few public appearances. His interest in art dates back to a childhood talent for sculpture. His work—which has been described as neo-primitive and abstract-expressionist[2]—has been exhibited in several countries.



Captain Beefheart is pretty much responsible for Tom Waits entire musical being.

What? You're going to have to elaborate on this. Outside of Jazz/Blues I don't see the connection.

* And it seems that he would be fairly lame without this magic band of his. Are those characters still alive?

As long as I can grab something I like on the 1st listen I'm willing to listen again and again to get more from it. But if its just harsh and I get nothing then yeah might not press play again.

The National
The Hold Steady (but they're playing in Baltimore in March, so I can catch them then)
and I liked the Portishead and A Tribe Called Quest mentions above, but I'll throw in Electric President to be different (unless a Talking Heads reunion was somehow possible, which it isn't)

probably because he played Bonnaroo & Lollapalooza this year.. and if you've ever seen his full live shot, it's actually quite good, but he isn't playing, so you don't need to worry yourself about it..

A lot of my desired bigger acts would echo what's already said, so I'm gonna jump on the hype train and declare Surfer Blood and Sleigh Bells as two small acts that I want to see. I know the Sleigh Bells is in precariously overhyped-mode right about now, but fuck it if I don't love the 5 (?) songs they've released. Hopefully there will be more in time for an early day slot.
