Just got back from Primavera, and i have to say that the Smashing Pumpkins were truly uninspiring. The 2 new "members" had all the stage presence of a pair of coma patients. Billy stayed on stage milking the applause for a good 5 minutes at the end, on his own! (over half the crowd had by this point left to watch Fennesz + Mike Patton twiddle knobs). A Gish free setlist too - criminal.
My wife is a huge fan, and it was one of the main reasons she wanted to go to the festival, but i doubt she'd ever want to see them again after that tepid pile of dogshit.
At least Sonic Youth were there to play Daydream Nation (to a much larger audience, surprisingly), and Justice managed to keep me up late with their 2am stage time. It was a good festival overall, one big plus being an acoustic indoor all seated auditorium, where we got to see Spiritualized and Kimya Dawson.
