What similarities do you see between them other than the fact that they both have Australian accents? I'm not trying to start anything, I'm just curious.

I've seen Xavier Rudd many times and I've always enjoyed it. He came up to us after a show at Wakarusa a few years ago and asked us how we liked it and if we wanted to chill and smoke for a while. Nice guy.

firstly, they both need a bath. secondly, they both lean towards acoustic guitar, lap steels, and 12-strings with the same off-campus coffee shop driven music, look, fanbase and influences (coughbobmarleycough). they're both "uniquely bland" in their 'hip' presentation of classic guitar stylings that have been done time and time again with far much more conviction and emotion. they both attempt to "creatively" play what are ultimately boring songs by using extra musical gimmicks such as playing their own percussion or simply playing the exact same notes on a guitar of different and/or uncommon shape, size, and string amount.

fuck, i'm boring myself just describing them.

are you so used to listening to your little japanese pop-punk-hipster bands with really abrasive tempos and melodies that you can't appreciate the beauty of a song full of subtle nuances and actual emotion? Go back to smoking your clove cigarettes, listening to your bands that are awesome because nobody has ever heard of (or if they have, its because it is the cool thing to like them), and thinking that you are god's gift to mankind. Oh yeah, playing instruments because they look cool are more a characteristic of the artists you hipsters listen to. Xavier rudd grew up around aborigines (therefore was influenced by tribal music) and is quirky enough to genuinely pull it all off. A song does not need to have tons of chord changes and loud/fast instrumentation to be interesting, idiot.

I saw Xavier Rudd last year at Bumbershoot. The only thing I knew about him was the he played 123741387 instruments. I enjoyed his set. It certainly wasn't anything amazing. But it was fun and entertaining. Nothing I would go out of my way to see again, but I enjoyed it.

I'd never heard of this guy before 10 minutes ago, I'm surprised he elicits so much hatred, he seems fairly harmless (but not quite in the Jack Johnson irritating kind of way)...it may not be the greatest thing I've ever heard, but I might check him out if he happened to be playing somewhere that I happened to be

I guess I'm a little of a tree hugging hippie at heart though

He kinda reminds me of this amazing street musician I saw near Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco a few years ago

but not quite in the Jack Johnson irritating kind of way

its the same shit as jack johnson only hes australian and more of a tree hugger. shit makes me want to fall asleep. and it is irritating. we already went through the jack johnson fiasco last year. we dont need it again. if you want to listen to some tree hugging hippies that want to save the earth, that can play uber amount of instruments, and attempt to rock a beard that looks nowhere near as sexy as Prince's, than go to the bonnaroo message boards. im sure there are like a hundred other idiots that want to discuss how awesome he is as well. but please, not here on coachella's.

really, you're going to react to my statement that way?

I'm not going to get into an internet pissing match over something I hardly care about

I said he was decent, and I would maybe check him out if he happened to be somewhere that I happened to be...that's it...

you clearly blew this way out of proportion

but I guess I'll leave the festival I've been going to since 1999 because a musician didn't elicit the appropriate amount of anger and irritation according to your standards


PS....what's wrong with wanting to save the earth?? you toss it around like it's an insult

Err, John Butler does not have an Australian accent. It's a bit of a running joke over here that an American is speaking out against Australian politician.

I saw Xavier Rudd late last year at a festival, he can play many instruments and has a few good songs but the performance and content tend to sway towards the boring side.

thats cool. i on the other hand do tho IMO. my belief on artists like xavier rudd is that they are a dime a dozen. irritating? maybe a slight bit. only because, well, its been done before and its nothing new, nor exciting. awesomo said it best . . . .best suited for bonnaroo.
