    Default Who will choke in 08?

    Every year at least one band chokes. In 2001 it was the Orb (although perhaps not entirely their fault); in 2007 it was Happy Mondays (Bez wasn't allowed into the states) and Air (who knows what happened). Who will it be this year?

    You don't have Enter Shikaka listed as an option.

    This poll can't be taken seriously without them.

    It had nothing to do with air... it was the equipment. They were having problems when Ghostface was on and I remember waiting SOOOO long for Air... but it wasn't there fault that they could only play the 3 or 4 songs that they did... that sucked pretty bad...

    I'm pretty sure I'll be able to live with myself if that ends up being true. Besides, he has whored himself out to every festival possible-I can always catch him at another one if it was absolutely necessary.

    Jack doesn't have enough equipment to choke...

    It'll probably end up being The Verve, methinks.

    Did anybody see the guitar cut out during Tokyo Police Clubs set last year?
    It was breifly but it took them the better part of their set to return to form.

    They could have been a lot stronger if they hadn't had so many problems.
