On January 23rd 2007 Twisted Records announced that a fourth Shpongle album is in the works, to be released in October 2008.

This would be Epic in the Sahara. If you dont know Shpongle, it's time to inform yourself.

Another album? SWEEEEEET. I though Mr. Man was done with that project. When I heard that announcement, I was Sad sad. Then I put up little flyers with the shpongle mask on it up in my crap grey cube at work in reverence. Besides, they looked cool. Now there's a newie coming??

Yes, Coachy 2009. Most def.

You listening, GV??

just look them up and check out their music......it won't take you very long....

it would be much more worthwhile than anyone trying to explain them to you

Shpongle and BoC in one weekend would cause my brain to potentially reach critical mass.

And I don't even do drugs.

everyone here, please help keep this thread alive....I have never recommended Shpongle to someone, and had them dislike it.......I''ve loved Shpongle for years, and have NEVER had the pleasure of seeing them perform....

Yeah, my husband wanted to somehow get to Boulder, Colorado this Friday May 9th to see them, but we just can't afford it. I would very much like Shpongle to be added in '09. (and I have 8 months to save up the cash for coachella).

honestly, that is my greatest wish....I have been a huge fan for many years, after hearing just a second of their debut

I don't know what the odds are though, they don't make it over here too often for some reason

I hear they don't get together often to do shows in general... and that its mostly DJ sets. But man...that would be sweet if they came.

They've only done a couple live shows at all, I guess it's a complicated affair....DJ sets do occur kinda regularly, but in very random spots around the world....I've checked their live schedule religiously for about 8 years, and am always saying to myself, "Macedonia? Turkey? Iceland? never in LA?"

I saw Simon Posford at a rave like 12 years ago and it was absolutely incredible...that was a few years before Shpongle though, and he's only gotten better

I think that's pretty cool though. I had a chance to catch them in Cairo a few years back.. but blew it. You'd think they would at least do 1 show in SoCal.. festival setting is the best bet

I think it's great that they play in as many places as possible too, unfortunately I don't get to travel as often as I would like to at the moment...so I'd love for them to come to me to make it a little easier!

a few years ago, they were in San Francisco the night before Coachella,and I wanted to go so badly, but I couldn't figure out a way to make it work realistically

one of these days it's gonna happen!

I missed Linton Kwessi Johnson at Coachella last year bc of tardiness..and even though its dub and poetry..he's unique, and never in the states.

Track number 5 just sends me to another place. Plus I love the random voice samples. It's the obscurity of a Shpongle song that really does remind you of those awesome trips you have had.

SHPONGLE WILL BE AT COACHELLA THIS YEAR! I have faith that this will happen. My faith comes from Shpongle being in Nashville, TN on 4/16 and has no other show scheduled until 5/21, so i would say that gives us a pretty good chance of getting Shpongle.

Shpongle being at Coachella would absolutely confirm, as if it hasn't been known before, that GV monitors the boards to some extent.

As if Etienne de Crecy didn't prove it as well last year.

Live! They have a show on 4/15 in Knoxville, TN and a show in Nashville, TN on 4/16 and neither of them say "DJ SET" next to them like their other dates do.

MMmmmm I will remain optimistic, but the first time I saw Shponlge at the Key Club nothing was labeled and it was a DJ set. I know our time is soon though! What better place than Coachella.

AbundantChoice
12-30-2009, 08:24 AM
Shpongle live sets are very, *very* rare, so if it's going to be a live set it will be talked about extensively on the Twisted / Sphongle page, etc. Note if you go to the Twisted tour page it has the TN dates explicitly listed as DJ sets

A BIG YES to Shpongle Live.

But...Younger Brother live would be a great consolation prize. They're releasing another album early 2010.

are these guys (shpongle) even worth booking if they're not live? this is probably the last group id care to see dj, playing flute over someone spinning isn't gonna cut it for me honestly.

Please bring him out for a Live set, otherwise GV could save alot of money by just putting his cd in the player and pressing play themselves.

Yeah I had thought the same thing about the Key Club show since Ticketmaster posted it as Shpongle. On their website they had it listed as a DJ set though.
Still was amazing though...

I've been listening to the live Shpongle set from Roundhouse over and over. They are playing another live set at Ozora fest in Budapest in August. I wish I had unlimited funds so I could go. My uncle's live in nanny is from there; I was hitting her up about the fest today but she's never heard of it and I can't find too much info about it online. Lucky Hungarians - got a live Shpongle set last year too.

Definitely many of the hippie types from ********* and events like that are aware of Shpongle...however they may not be aware of Coachella. I spread the Coachella sermon as much as I could to them. I would love to have them at Coachella.

Even if a Dj set was all we got for Coachella, it would teach a lot of people about Shpongle...and perhaps lead to a live show one day. Simon Dj's a bunch of Shpongle songs in the show. I would say day set should be in the Do Lab...if it were a night set, the Sahara as the sun goes down so we could experience all of the glowing actors.
