The article linked below says that MBV is likely to make a comeback at Coachella next year and also that Portishead is confirmed for '08. Apologies if this has already been posted.

So would they likely headline on Sunday? And does this quell the notion of No Doubt headlining a day? I mean, having Radiohead & My Bloody Valentine headline 2 of the 3 days would make Gwen Stefani & Co. seem glaringly out of place.

Are you retarded? Last year they had crowded house play before and Manu Chao which played right before Rage Against the Machine. Those 3 bands are so far apart from each other musically its ridiculous. I hope to the sweet virgin Mary
that No Doubt will play. It would make up for the travesty that is Radiohead...

I wasn't talking about the style of music played, fucktard, I was talking about the reverence the bands possess. It'd be like the Sahara headliners being Underworld on Friday, Chemical Brothers on Saturday, and DJ Keoki on Sunday. Wouldn't Keoki's placement seem rather ridiculous in comparison to the previous two days? If you have two ground-breaking, legendary headliners, whoever you get to do the third day should be at a similar level so the reaction isn't, "WTF happened to that third day?" And regardless of your opinion of Radiohead, that would be the reaction if No Doubt headlined alongside Radiohead and My Bloody Valentine. (The only way I can see that still happening is if the subheadliner is of the level of Portishead or PJ Harvey, kind of like Arcade Fire preceding Red Hot Chili Peppers on Saturday this year.)

Wait... this article wasnt claiming MBV were gonna headline, was it? If so, I doubt they would headline. The Jesus and Mary Chain werent headliner this year were they?

Portishead would be quite awesome though.

Funny enough though, the band that stood out to me most in that entire artcile, is The Specials! I would LOVE IT if Coachella could get together a full on Specials reunion. Yes. That means you Terry. And you too Jerry!

As much as a lot of people would be incredibly excited if this happened, I dont think they are a headliner draw. But yes, 7 figures usually only gets offered to headliners... but Coachella is different.

Never happening, Josh Home has said many times he find it almost entertaining how they are bigger now then they were while they were playing. He plans to keep it that way.

I don't think Goldenvoice would ever let Coachella become what Lolla had become. I think they'd not have it at all before they let the integrity of the festival go to shit. I'm just tired of top 40 artists like the Peppers & Smashing Pumpkins being requested by all these highschooler noobs that as you've stated have very little knowledge or respect for artists that they're unaware of. Its their ignorance. Just because you don't know the band or artists & can't sing along to the songs doesn't mean their not worthy of performing at Coachella.

Both Radiohead & NIN have already done the fest. Been there done that. I don't see any reason for GV to repeat other than they know they'll get a huge draw with Radiohead. The reason most of these bands are put on the bill & are headliners is because they haven't toured in years some cases decades & people are nostalgic about music. MBV haven't been together in more than 15 years! Its not about "They haven't sold enough records" or "Nobody knows who they are." or "They're not big enough." Its about paying respect to a band that dared to innovate & push the boundaries of music to take it to the next level where no band or artist has since gone & may never go. Do you know any band that can pull those sounds out of a guitar, bass, drums, etc.? I'd put my life & everything I own on it that you don't. Listen to their material more. You can't just listen to their stuff once & form an opinion. It grows on you with each listen, trust me.

I hope coachella doesnt turn for the worse. You're right it is the same thing every year with people requesting these larger bands to headline, no doubt? come on.. This is why I stopped going to Coachella for the last couple of years, do I really want to kick it with Paris Hilton, or sit in a tent with Thurston Moore listening to Ian Mackaye. Tough choice.. I choose Thurston.. Hell why not have Watt up there doing his spiel?.. If I want to go to an indie-fest like coachella, I just dont want to be subjected to some of the fans of the larger bands, and or music.. The great thing about coachella is you can always go off into a tent, and discover something different..

Rage only had 3 studio albums and a covers album ( not counting the live album ), and so what? Quality, not quantity. My Bloody Valentine would be a great addition to next year's line up. Not saying they'd close out the Coachella main stage... but then again, Tiesto closed out the main stage on Saturday after RHCP played, so who knows?

If that were the case The Pixies would have headlined over Radiohead and shinoda is right. MBV doesn't have the kind of popularity or pull to headline Coachella, they just don't. the headliner needs to be band that can sell out arenas or other huge venues because you are kind of depending on them to sell some tickets. Look I'm excited about this news too, but like I said the only way MBV could headline Coachella if they have someone like the Foo Fighters subheadlining or a similar big act with mainstream appeal and a huge ass sahara headliner that day too.

Polvo all the way. Thats a band I don't think anybody has ever mentioned on this board. Not that I've seen anyway. Superchunk would be sweet too. Did you see their tour together back in the day? Afghan Whigs used to be so huge here in Ohio being from Cincinasty & all. They actually played the fairgrounds of this lame town I'm in. Music critics started doggin on Greg the lead singer for some reason & they eventually disbsanded. They had some great cuts though "Drink & Smoke & Stick it in" I dug the shit outta that song.

Mascis' has proved he is a diehard touring force especially on the underground scene with his solo shows & other projects. Now that Dinosaur is back in full swing with all 3 orignial members it would definately be a draw. They were absolutely stunning at Lolla 05. They played every oldschool hit flawlessy like they'd never stopped. Thank God Lou & J put there differences aside to make a new killer album & tour.

If the PNYC disc is anything to go off of (granted, I think it's nearing a decade in age), the instrumentation and the pure power of Beth's vocals would definitely make the performance anything but "boring" or "dreary"... I mean, I know it's downtempo, but it's not fucking Boards of Canada (no offense, I'm starting to like them too). Either way, I would absolutely love to see Portishead (probably not headline but be the 2nd name down) after whatever headliner leaves the stage, at like 10pm-ish and close out the night. Magnifique.

And although it may be just 1/2th of the Pumpkins, if MBV does play Coachella and doesn't headline, I couldn't think of a more proper headliner than Billy Corgan since I can see a lot of where SP got it's sound in MBV (even though I've only given Loveless a few listens thus far).

I could live with SP headlining, but please, for the love of god, no White Stripes... and if avoidable, no Radiohead. Or at least, if Radiohead, put them against Portishead so I can enjoy the end of my night...

Polvo all the way. Thats a band I don't think anybody has ever mentioned on this board. Not that I've seen anyway. Superchunk would be sweet too. Did you see their tour together back in the day? Afghan Whigs used to be so huge here in Ohio being from Cincinasty & all. They actually played the fairgrounds of this lame town I'm in. Music critics started doggin on Greg the lead singer for some reason & they eventually disbsanded. They had some great cuts though "Drink & Smoke & Stick it in" I dug the shit outta that song.

Yep, I was able to see polvo/superchunk years ago in Sacramento at this tiny punk theater.. polvo was so unbelievable I was able to catch them live twice. one of the greatest math rock bands ever.. afghans would definitely be another tent band, I think..they can get the groove on.

Later rumors

In 2004, My Bloody Valentine were rumored to be re-recording five additional tracks in Berlin for the re-release of 1990's Glider EP; however, if anything was recorded, it has yet to surface.[citation needed]

As reported on Pitchfork Media, Shields said in an interview in the January/February 2007 issue of Magnet that My Bloody Valentine will record another album "100%" . . . "unless we die or something."[5]

According to music magazine The Daily Swarm, a performance at the 2008 edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is being negotiated and a world tour is on the works, although Vinita Joshi, Kevin Shield's manager, said that “there are no confirmed shows at all.” [6]

Just a guess but excluding Radiohead, all the bands listed are groups that are disbanded and have people clamoring for them to appear every year. Perhaps that's why Radiohead got put in the Do Lab, since they've never broken up and have actually been at Coachella already?

God, I sure hope they do play Coachella. It'd be pointless for them to say no now that they are finally doing shows again. That's the band I've been into for the longest time but have never been able to see, not counting bands with dead people like Nirvana, The Beatles, etc.

HOLY MONK

From NME:

Mark E Smith, Kevin Shields, Shaun Ryder for 'Soft Focus' web TV series

Billy Childish, Bobby Gillespie and Graham Coxon will also appear
1 hour ago

Mark E Smith, Kevin Shields, Shaun Ryder and Billy Childish are among the artists interviewed for a UK version of 'Soft Focus' on VBS.TV.

Bobby Gillespie and Graham Coxon are also featured in the forthcoming series, which sees former Make-Up frontman Ian Svenonius host the show and interview music legends.

Speaking to NME.COM from his hometown of Washington DC, Svenonius admits that being the interviewer is not something he necessarily enjoys:

"I enjoy repartee, but it's more of a duty, If you want to enjoy yourself you have a nice cup of coffee, we're doing this to do something interesting."

And he says like the previous series, which included interviews with Will Oldham, Chan Marshall and Ian Mackaye, this one will avoid the traditional interview route with musicians.
Svenonius says his intention is that the interviews should feel like memorable encounters with the subjects.

"It's like that conversation you had with Eddie Cochrane on his way to the bathroom and it's stuck in your memory, someone who's important to you, It's not supposed to be definitive. It's an aesthetic kind of thing. There's moments."

And he says his occasionally press-shy British subjects were a welcome addition to the 'Soft Focus' family.

"British people like to talk and they talk well. The British expect their pop stars to a more ideological flair whereas Americans are looking for the gesture. Billy Childish was a huge inspiration to me, Mark E Smith is a great man. He's got a great malevolent energy, a real presence.

Svenonius also spoke to Kevin Shields about the rumoured My Bloody Valentine reunion for Coachella 2008.

"Kevin Shields is a charming, gracious guy. There's a difference between guitar players and singers and of course he's a singer but he's more of a guitar player temperament. Singers are always over-compensating in interviews, whereas guitar players are more introverted. He's making a new record, but My Bloody Valentine is about to headline Coachchella so I think that was part of the impetus for doing the interview."

Series two of 'Soft Focus' premieres today on VBS.TV.

doesnt the sahara headliner close out the dance test almost always? and cheesy trance DJs never really "headline" the tent. It's usually a high caliber act (underworld, chemical brothers, prodigy, daft punk, kraftwerk - just to name a few)

Underworld was the Sahara headliner on day 2 of 2003 but Ritchie Hawtin closed out the tent. Both Happy Mondays and Paul van Dyk were billed higher on the poster for day 3 this year but Infected Mushroom closed out the tent. As for "cheesy trance DJs" headlining Sahara, I'm pretty sure Paul van Dyk closed out the tent on day 2 in 2004.

seriously, things are looking bleak on the mbv at Coachella front I'm starting to doubt it will happen. With no Radiohead, no MBV reunion I'm beginning to get concerned even though I probably shouldn't be.

Dude, the line-up announcement is still a few months away. No Radiohead? It's a bummer, yeah, but have faith in Goldenvoice -- perhaps it's because they've got an even bigger card up their sleeves. As for the reports saying MBV is still in negotiations, maybe they're just being coy to fuck with our heads, make us question the certainty of their being there next year. Perhaps it was one of those things that Goldenvoice wanted to keep secret and with the cat let out of the bag, they're doing what they can to re-instill some mystery, keep us on our toes.

If Coachella can get these two (see title of thread), then that's a start. No Radiohead is painful though. PAINFUL.

you're right, you shouldnt be. no matter who they get this year, it will be good. Coachella is always good. its one of those things you can always count on...like getting laid...even if its not as great as the last time, its still really good.

Ah yes. Because theres nothing that the folks at goldenvoice are more concerned with than what a handful of people on the coachella message board are thinking.

If I was him... I would actually do shit like that. I would find it incredibly funny.
But to be fair, us on the Coachella message boards obviously aren't the only ones talking about a MBV reunion at Coachella. Rumours are going around ALL over the internet.

MBV news is cool and all.... but seriously... whats the deal with Portishead. All I want to hear is they are there next year, and I will be good.
