I haven't seen them live since Street Scene 97. Anyone else looking forward to seeing them?

I'm really looking forward to this, but not with the inevitable conflict that's going to happen.

i am also very surprised at how low they are, but it doesn't effect them as a band. They were amazing in OCTOBER and i don't expect them to disappoint at coachella, One of my favorite bands of all time.

I haven't seen Echo & the Bunnymen since way back in their beginning, 1980 I think. It was in a small club in New York City called The Peppermint Lounge. A "local" NYC band called Plan 9 opened for them. The opening band was excellent, too. Wonder whatever happened to Plan 9....After all these years, very much looking to E&TBM's set at Coachella.

They havent tourd since 06 that could be why there name is lower on the lineup

i mean realistically they're only 1 line below where they should be (below vampire weekend/grizzly bear?!?!), but then again so are several artists on that poster. come coachella weekend that shit wont matter anyways

They were touring quite a bit last year, Ian has even been doing solo acoustic shows from what I've heard.

nokia theatre? yea that show was amazing! played all of ocean rain and then a whole other set, didnt expect them to play that long


their set however HAS to be either right after the sun goes down or at night. daytime would just be wrong

agreed, i don't get how pission pit is ahead of them, but maybe echo will be ignored by the people who don't already love them

This is a huge draw for me, as I've always wanted to see Echo in concert, but just never had the opportunity... I hope they play some of their slower ballads (Forgiven) and they play the outdoor Theatre or they would even sound better in the Gobi.

I love Echo, but I don't think they're much more popular than Paul Weller, and he played to maybe 100 people in the late afternoon on the Outdoor. I think the best Echo can hope for is a 6:30 pm slot in the outdoor.

Likely:

Fri Main - Jay Z > TCV/LCD > Vampire Weekend
Fri Outdoor - Specials > TCV/LCD > Passion Pit > Echo

maybe if ian's voice sounded like it did in the 80's...but his pipes are not what they use to

So let me ask you hardcore fans, as someone who has never really gotten into Echo and the Bunnymen, do I have any chance at getting into them before Coachella? Would I appreciate them anyways?

hendrixfan143
01-22-2010, 12:23 PM
yes. Listen to ocean rain, maybe like 3 times, but really listen to it. If not, then at least you know you won't regret missing them. You can spare 2 hours of the next three months to listen to echo

summerkid
01-22-2010, 12:24 PM
If you like post punk then i see no reason why you couldnt get into them. They are a great band and have some very accessible stuff.

Saw them at the Nokia in October, man what a great show and set list.

I can easily spare that time. I can probably spare time to listen to another album or too also. I've got Ocean Rain on right now, and I'm already liking it. What else would you reccommend?

Does anyone know if they still play porcupine era material. That album is just too good, Im guessing that they still play Ocean Rain.

They were excellent even in the rain at All Points West. if you havent had the chance, see them! I also hope they are on the outdoor stage, or better yet in one of the tents. I have seen them many times, and I never miss them. No matter the conflict, i will see them again.

Find All My Colors(Zimbo) (I think it's on Porcupine). Play. Repeat. That is all.

See if you could find the BBC Peel session of Echo & the Bunnymen. Porcupine is a realy good album, but I personaly like Heaven Up Here more. Ocean Rain of course. Crocodiles is another great album too.

Put me in the "They were awesome at Nokia" camp. It was one of my concert highlights of the year.

I saw them at Reading 99. All I remember was The Cutter though because I haven't listened to alot of their stuff.

Their show at the Fox Theater in Oakland last October was as good as any show I've seen by them going back to the 80s. They are still vital both live and on record.

I just got their first four albums and I'm really, really impressed. They might be my #2 band for Friday. (Behind the Avett Brothers.)

I love their music, but I just saw a recent live show of theirs on Directv and it didnt look as amazing as I was imagining them live in my head... I still wanna see them big time...

Looking forward to them as well. The Killing Moon is a song that I really connect with. Rescue...so many others. Have never seen them.

yeah that was the sxsw show, that sucked. But the song choice wasn't taht great and the crowed sucked. Plus things always suck on tv

In their heyday, Bunnies were a real force live. Plenty of recorded material out there to back up that assertion. Nowadays, Ian's voice just does not pack the wallop it used to. Years of smoking, drinking and generally being a fark up. That said, I was also at the Nokia Ocean Rain show (my 4th time seeing them), and once Ian was warmed up, right around the point they launched into Bring On the Dancing Horses, his voice really opened up and the band were absolutely killing it. Back Of Love and the Cutter were as good as they have ever sounded. Definitely a top draw for me this Coachella.

A must see just for the older stuff. The new CD is well..., but go and listen just for "Killing Moon," "The Cutter," "Dancing Horses," especially if they end up in the tent (I hope). Saw them at APW in the rain, and it was worth the wait.

You're totally right about the time slot, but perhaps misguided on the Weller attendance last year. While his crowd was smaller than he deserved, there was a reasonable crowd and one that seemed to grow as the set went on.

Hopefully these guys can draw a few people in during the sunset hour.

i saw them in the fall with a small orchestra, they performed ocean rain and some its. fuckin' ace.

i've seen them a few other times too and they are always wonderful.

public image ltd., the specials and echo and the bunnymen all on the same day is my teenage wet dream.

I can see them headlining the Outdoor stage or at least getting a night slot. I mean, people fuckin' LOVE Echo and Bunnymen.

Main Stage: Passion Pit -> Vamp Weekend (Sunset) -> TCV -> Hova.

Outdoor: She & Him - Grizzly Bear (Sunset) -> Public Image -> Echo.

Heaven Up Here, actually. A very underrated album with great songs such as No Dark Things, With A Hip and A Promise. I wonder if they include HUH material on their set list

Maybe more people did come later. I remember walking up after he had just started and being able to basically walk all the way to the stage.

People do love Echo, but they tour a lot. I've seen them at least twice since they started touring in the late 90s. With LCD playing the main before Jay-Z, that probably makes TCV the outdoor closer. I think Sunset or earlier.
