    Wink Boards of Canada

    Sorry. We needed a new thread for the new board. So...you think they'll make it?

    There's probably a better chance of rain at Coachella.

    There's that 2% chance! We thought it might rain last year....It didn't, of course.

    dammit Amy, you know how I feel about these BOC threads. Now, if only we can keep 1 single BOC thread, in which everybody posts the various organs that would fail if BOC actually plays (not fukking likely, by the way), then this new board will be my friend. I'm saying there's a .38% chance of them playing 2007 and about a 1 % chance of them ever playing coachella.

    Sorry, nothingman. I actually read your complaint about the BoC threads AFTER I'd already posted this. I respect that you feel that way, but I also think there's nothing wrong with adding to the BoC buzz.

    Amy, I'd be thrilled (and shocked) if BOC plays, and i agree that there needs to be a thread put up. If anything, we should "sticky" it, so that each time a newbie comes on and feels like posting something along the lines of "Why not BOC this year???", they can simply post in the correct thread. But then again, half the fun of the board is seeing the overexcited speculation about BOC. Frustratingly obnoxious? Sure. Harmless fun? I suppose.

    If they refuse to learn how to play live, why would they start now? It's more likely for Jeff Buckley to play.

    I am not aware of any live BoC boots circulating out there, so your guess is as good as mine. Where's Menik? He's the resident Boc optimist/expert.

    Erik told me some time ago he heard they were supposed to be good live. I was just curious if anyone else knew of any specific live dates.

    There is three live boots floating around, 2 of them which can be found in lossless if you search hard enough. One from 1999 (1999-11-05), one from 2000 (2000-10-14), and one from ATP in 2001 (2001-04-07 - which I believe is their last show performed). They also performed in 1997 at the Phoenix festival, and supported Autechre in a few shows too.

    There is also their 1998 appearance on the John Peel show, 3 songs which can be found on CD, and another one (XYZ) which can be found elsewhere. they also did a radio show in France I believe some time during that span as well.

    I've read interviews where they stated they were preparing to be play live in the future, but then again, they've said a lot of things. Supposedly, a few of the live shows they played ended not so good...as in equipment failing/blowing up.

    i've got the live boot from the ATP and its pretty good. i'm not sure how they'd go over in a fest setting though - they are pretty low key...

    definitely an afternoon set....

    Yeah, everytime I have listened I have been fairly bored. Different strokes I guess.

    In my opinion, this is the most likely year for them to be there. But I'm guessing they won't. Also, XYZ is on the vinyl release of the peel session.

    What stage would BOC play? Or would they be in the tent?

    I have to be counted in the "Oh please oh please oh please let it work out for them to be there" camp, even if it doesn't seem likely.

    luckyface, during coachella, the only place BoC will be playing is on your ipod. Last year, not this year, was the year to get them. Campfire released in late '05 then that Highway EP in mid '06. I'm not going to be the guy to crush your hopes, so I'll give it a .000000024% chance of a BoC appearance at Coachella this year.
