let's hope a 'woodstock 94' doesn't happen on us (meaning, when promoters at woodstock cut aphex's set short, because they found out he forged the signature on his contract). Hehe.

wtf? why would they do that? did they find out the signature was forged part way through his set? that whole scenario just seems ridiculous. if he shows up to perform, who cares about a forged signature?

No, this is how i'm calling it.

The sahara on friday night will be

Pendulum --> Fatboy Slim --> Aphex Twin

with JJ going against Fatboy (and maybe a bit of Aphex)

seriously. Pendulum to Fatboy to Aphex could possibly the greatest 3 act punch the sahara tent will ever see.

Likewise. It will mean Pendulum vs The Verve (i'm guessing), but that will be an easy conflict for me.


As long as Battles doesn't play during the night, once Pendulum has gone on, then Friday Night will be perfect.

So you don't see Jack Johnson headlining? Interesting, here I thought he was, which was what caused a major uproar for about a month. Srsly though, if JJ even only plays 10:30-12:00 he'll be conflicting with Aphex and maybe a bit of FBS, I think you have it slightly backwards.

The bummer in the FBS --> Aphex (which I'm almost positive will happen) for a lot of people will be, when/where does Goldfrapp play? I've bought into them being at the OT, probably closing or 2nd to last, which would conflict with either FBS or Aphex (and/or quite possibly The Verve). Friday just got a helluva lot better and more crowded at the top.

betao
03-12-2008, 08:54 AM
Trust me, GV won't put Aphex Twin against anyone major. Maybe JJ, but not anyone else.

Damn, if Aphex ends up on friday, just imagine if Madness was still on the bill, and the possible conflicts that could bring on Friday night.

I never said JJ wasnt headlining. What makes you think he will play till midnight? I'm guessing he'll get the RHCP timeslot, with or without someone going on the mainstage after him. If Aphex is playing Friday, I don't think GV will let JJ play till midnight because of the conflicts it will cause beforehand. You may have Fatboy slim vs The Verve, and then Pendulum vs whoever goes on before that. That seems nasty.

Goldfrapp, if I had to guess, will play on Sunday. I don't think both them and Aphex will do Friday. Me guessing Sunday is based on a hunch I guess.

funny how RHCP seem to own that slow now. despite the fact that Bjork held it in 02 with the chems to follow, Radiohead held it in 04 with nobody to follow, NIN in 05 with Black Star following. and didn't Depeche Mode also play this timeslot in 06?

I guess RHCP are the most recent.

NIN had Black Star following after them in 05.

And people say RHCP because its the most recent, most familiar, and most talked about for some reason (probably because of Tiesto going on after him)

Edmontonian
03-12-2008, 09:15 AM
OK so I'm sure this is clarified earlier in this thread but I really don't want/have time to go through the thread looking for the info.
So Why does everyone seem to think Aphex Twin is on Friday? I checked the lineup with the by day sorting link and it didn't have the new adds updated yet.. and I read the news release and didn't see anywhere a note on which days the new acts are going to play on. Did GV post this info somewhere or is it just conjecture? Do you guys know which night Goldfrapp will be? I would like to see both Aphex Twin and Goldfrapp (conflicts allowing... there are so many hot acts this year I will have to miss many).
When I read about the adds my first thought was that they would be added to Sunday which would explain why there was such a huge discrepancy in the # of bands (sunday has the fewest by far) this whole time... I figured Aphex Twin would probably close the Sahara Sunday and play during Roger Waters, I think this would cause less of an uproar than if they conflicted RW with Justice closing the Sahara (I know Aphex Twin is quite legendary, but in a popularity contest Justice wins out they're on fire right now and techno is losing its appeal in the eyes of the masses... Aphex Twin can generally be considered techno, yes? I'm never super sure with electronica genres...).

Well, we can rule out Saturday, because Saturday night does not need anything else happening. Most people think its a clusterfuck as it is.

So if you had to pick Friday or Sunday, look at the headliners. Most of this board despises JJ, so you can put a big sahara name on at the same time as that as opposed to Roger Waters. I think it'd be easy to schedule around all that on Friday as opposed Sunday.

Its somewhat logical I guess.

orbit
03-12-2008, 09:18 AM
because saturday is already too packed with sahara acts, and we are assuming aphex would play there.

if he plays on friday, my wish times would be:

main stage: fatboy slim --> jack johnson or jack johnson ---> fatboy slim
outdoor: the verve ---> i dont care
sahara: anyone except pendulum ---> aphex

I only don't want the Verve playing against Pendulum or Aphex, that'd suck.

Don't forget in 2006 they had Depeche Mode headline and close the main stage early on Saturday, closed 9:00-10:30 so they wouldn't conflict with Daft Punk in the Sahara... I think Tiesto's main stage appearance was just an extension of that timing schedule motif, where they have a rock headliner followed by an electronica headliner to avoid conflicts and let the dance party end the night, but that way they didn't have to close down a stage early and can keep all stages going right to the end.

I wasn't trying to say Justice is better than Aphex Twin, you really can't compare an upstart electro duo with a legendary techno god... however I do think Justice are more popular especially with the kids these days and the Coachella crowd (new music just gets people going). So if GV had to conflict one of them with Roger Waters, I think it would be Aphex Twin.
For Friday they've already got Fatboy Slim, I think he's definitely Sahara headliner material and makes the perfect contrast to JJ.

There is no way GV are going to have Fatboy Slim and Aphex Twin conflict. No way. I also don't see why Fatboy Slim would be on the mainstage.
I say JJ closes the mainstage, and Aphex closes the tent. That means Fatboy will conflict with the Verve and Pendulum will conflict with The Raconteurs.
Then who knows what the fuck will be up with the outdoor theatre and the other tents.


Trust me, GV won't put Aphex Twin against anyone major. Maybe JJ, but not anyone else.

Damn, if Aphex ends up on friday, just imagine if Madness was still on the bill, and the possible conflicts that could bring on Friday night.

I agree. If Aphex Twin plays Sunday, there is no way he will be put up against Roger Waters.

Also, if Madness were still on the bill, they would win any/all conflicts on Friday. Even Aphex Twin.

I think fatboy slim would be great closing the main stage.


Don't forget in 2006 they had Depeche Mode headline and close the main stage early on Saturday, closed 9:00-10:30 so they wouldn't conflict with Daft Punk in the Sahara...

yes. see my earlier post in which I mentioned that. they also did the same for Radiohead in 04, avoiding a conflict with Kraftwerk.

I think fatboy slim would be great closing the main stage.

Really? Because the live videos I have seen, seem to me like they would be better suited in the Sahara. Plus, that would mean a Fayboy Slim/Aphex Twin conflict. Now, if this was Lolla or ACL, I would expect that. But I don't think GV would do that too us.

No matter what, most of us are going to get F*cked by conflicts this year. It's inevitable. I say everyone should stop stressing about it and just listen to as much Coachella music as you can between now and then so that you are ready to make the decisions that need to be made. There are so many exceptional acts this year that you all should be listening to as much as you can for the next 43 days. There's nothing you can do and NO conflicts are out of the question... traditionally they've avoided conflicting acts in the first two lines of the lineup by day poster, but you can throw that out the window as of Sunday last year when they conflicted THREE sub-headliner acts (Paul Van Dyk, Happy Mondays and Manu Chao). Just relax and wait for the schedule and be comfortable knowing that no matter who you have to miss, the bands you end up seeing will be your top choices, your weekend will still be one of the most amazing weekends of your life, and every band you have to miss will end up allowing you to see someone else who they would have conflicted with had they been in a different time slot. Thats how Coachella works and its what makes it so unreal and unique among American festivals, because they keep all stages going all night to ensure that no matter what at all time slots everyone gets their choice out of five acts, so there will probably be at least one that you want to see. You don't even need to like the headliners to have an amazing time.

03-12-2008, 09:51 AM
I'm calling this before I leave for a few hours:

Friday.

Fatboy closes the main 10:50-12:00 while that Serj Tankian closing the Outdoor rumor comes true (if it does, if not switch with The Breeders below) at roughly the same time, and some smaller act playing the Sahara just like Evil Nine and Infected Mushroom last year.

JJ plays 9:15-10:30 or so, which is when Aphex and The Breeders will be going on, although those two will be staggered slightly as there's likely to be some demand minimal conflict

Verve on Main and Goldfrapp on Outdoor play the first true "night" sets.

The Raconteurs are probably the best performance of the day at sundown on the main.

Well then in that case... if he plays my Sunday guess is it will looks something like this:
Main: L&R --> Roger Waters
Sahara: Justice --> Modeselektor --> Aphex Twin

So Justice conflicts with L&R, and it avoid the Roger Waters conflict. It had Modeselektor playing during Waters, since that wouldn't be a huge conflict for a lot of people. Plus, it puts Modeselektor playing before Aphex Twin, and a lot of people probably like that idea. As well, after Roger Waters, everyone could run over and go see Aphex Twin, who would have just started or will be starting soon.

I did this so I could make the ultimate best of coachella playlist to put on shuffle, and to give the dvds to my friends who are also going so they wouldn't actually have to download and listen to the whole albums to get a decent taste of what these artists have got going on.

There are a lot of people who don't care about Roger Waters this year, and GV has never, ever had all the stages shut down for one band ever before, and if they didn't do it for Rage, they aren't going to do it for Roger Waters. Im guessing a semi-big name in the Sahara during Waters (Modeselektor? Danny Tenalia?) and some other small-ish type act in Gobi or Mojave. Murs perhaps? The Cool Kids? Sons & Daughters?

My regret with Madonna was that we left the Yeah Yeah Yeahs early to get a "good spot." We missed the last 3-4 YYY songs and didn't even make it into the tent. Then she went on half an hour late and played for 10 minutes over, meaning that even though we hightailed it to the main stage, we still missed the first Massive Attack song. Leaving early wasn't really an option because we were so far in, it would've taken probably as long to get out of there, and besides, the girl I went with decided to do so only after Madonna's addition to the lineup.

It is pretty amazing that people don't know. I mean the man pioneered a genre, inspired a generation of music video directors, loved and reveered by his musical peers.

I think it is quoted somewhere that the transition from Ok Computer to Kid A was because Thom was listening to Aphex Twin and wanted to go in that direction..

Daft Punk has cited Aphex as an inspiration..

I mean really people.. look into it and jump on the Aphex Twin bandwagon already!

I think their last album sold pretty fucking well. Aphex is not too radio-friendly, and he hasn't played in the US so much that it kinda helps and hurts his placement.


For the record, he better just play his fucking heavy industrial/techno/whatever fucking evil machinations and leave the IDM back in England. Sorry guys, but fuck that shit.

Also, here's that live review

Review: Pop: Aphex Twin Barrowlands, Glasgow 3/5

David Peschek
Thursday May 4, 2006
The Guardian

"I expected something out of this world," says a woman in the crowd, "but this is too danceable," and she inflects the final word as if unsure whether it's a complaint or a compliment.
Such is the mystique surrounding Richard James, aka Aphex Twin , intensely private, super-prolific twister of electronic music into alien shapes, that you want his new music to sound like nothing on earth - a terrible burden for any artist to bear.

Barely visible behind his laptop, James has an unenviable task. Metal-heads, jonesing ravers, electro-nerds and serious, Wire-reading types jostle in Barrowlands, a historic rock venue that's wrong for this kind of show. While there are plenty of people who have been dancing from the beginning, when the music is more about rupture than rhythm, there's an equal amount who seem bewildered, and a few perplexed customers yelling abuse at the stage.
For James, this set is probably comparatively unchallenging. He has been known to play sheets of sandpaper, and his sets supporting Bjork a couple of years ago were a barrage of galvanisingly horrible, formless noise. He plays what might be an obscure Prince remix, the odd selection from his Analord series of 12-inches - basically old-school rave with an incredibly elegant sheen - and a less than charitable Streets cut-up in which Mike Skinner is made to say: "I'm really shit but oh my gosh I don't know it, I should absolutely be shot."

He also plays an enormous amount of breathtakingly beautiful music that could only very loosely be called electro. The audience are never quite sure where it's going - the first really big cheer is for a briefly surfacing Northern Soul horn riff, cast into the melee like a rope to a drowning man. Snatches of blissful melody bubble up and are pulled under, and the crowd surge and retreat, latching on to what they can.

I hear ya, what APHEX TWIN has done for electronica and music in general over the last 15 years is monumental. But why MMJ is high on the bill, is cause they're really entertaining and kinda popular. APHEX...not so much.

I would think he would be doing a DJ set. I'd put money on him being definitely in the Sahara tent. He never really plays "live" per se. He's too lazy for that. He'll definitely have his laptop in tow, and will most likely play some of his own tunes but also other producer's tunes, hence DJ SET.
