View Full Version : Monklish on The Smiths, again...

It seems she may be reversing her initial insisting that The Smiths are absolutely not playing. Also, she continues to list Boards of Canada as a "probably."

Hmm..

Good Skepticism, although I think the headliners (budgeted) will still be greater than that.


I can see it looking something like this:

Morrissey

Flaming Lips - Killers

Radiohead - Neil Young

Moz will definitely be there...most likely as a Friday headliner or subheadliner on another day. (More like the latter)

I think Monklish is scoop. That blog is a pretty much a carbon copy of scoop's page with a few different small bands tossed in. The headliners were literally cut and paste from the Coachella page. There is even the same space missing between 'NEIL YOUNG' and the '(...' Cut and paste. Not to mention much of the terminology is the same too, ex: bitching about 'bad apples'.... just sayin....

Not really, but it was a surprise to see a blogger deem some random message board member's comments (mine) important enough to comment on. IDK, that blog just looks like an extension of everything that goes on around here...

At any rate, as I've stated in other threads, I'm more than willing to be wrong and will say so if thats the case. But thus far, there is nothing that indicates this blogger has any more credibility than the next person, thats all.

But I really hope they're right about the Chemical Brothers. That would make my Coachella.

QFT, but everyone gives it more credibility because that user went out and concentrated things into a blogspot account.

pancakespancakes
01-20-2009, 01:00 PM
Well as far as I'm concerned she has called on at least 8-10 bands to play Coachella, that later had their dates announced, with obvious Coachella gaps in them, that lead to them being of course added to the "confirmed" list here... but I don't follow this stuff very closely, so I who knows. I have been reading Monklish for quite some time now though, and I was always skeptical. But I did think it was strange how many small insignificant longshot bands she mentioned that no one else mentioned. It was later, though, when those bands announced their tour dates that pretty much confirmed them, I was no longer a skeptic of Monklish.

No, she definitely has connections to the industry, it's pretty obvious... she does not work for AEG Live, as far as I know, because she openly claims to "only knowing so much," and she simply gathers her information from asking questions. But there's no way she could have just predicted all of those smaller obscure bands back then before they announced their tour dates.

Monklish is like one of those cold reader psychics that are exceptionally good at reading a situation and figuring out what is most likely true. Then they throw a bunch of predictions out there. Three come true. And people are like "how could she have known my dead grandmother used to sing to me?"

Reading over that again, it makes more sense in my head. But whatever.

I would think that too if it wasn't that she has gotten 3 right out of 20 that she predicted. Because at this point it's the majority of bands that are listed. But, if this is the case, I guess we'll see come lineup time next week...

Monkish and CoS share the same tastes, but at least CoS admits it takes a lot from this board. To me, Monkish is about reliable as the Weekly World News, and mostly, it's just a lot of b.s. to promote an otherwise obscure blog.

Plus nationocean always says stuff like "i thought you were one of the people who knew what was REALLY going on"

or he lumps us all into an inferior group like "you are all just embarrassing yourself"
