    Aphex Twin: he only played for a hour and used the 1st half just to fuck with the audience. He wanted to play more.

    Portishead: Yes, it WON'T happen and I don't know if it could even live up to the set they performed in 08.

    Modeselektor: Conflicted with Roger Waters...

    Spiritualized: I 2nd the motion. Their acoustic set was a flop. They need to come back and do a full on electric set.

    Am I the only one who enjoyed the first half of Aphex's set more than the second half?

    St. Vincent killed it last year. I was hoping for SMD because I missed them, but they have other tour dates during all of Coachella, so that isn't happening. Boys Noize or Modeselektor would suffice.

    Do you know for a fact that Aphex Twin wanted to play more? Cuz to me he seemed kinda bored the whole set, but I would agree with you that he did stray from simply playing "noise" to "somewhat coherent noise".....overall I feel he could have played a much better set, but I was still pleased. I'd be shocked if he returned this year though.......

    Yeah, wow, modeselektor rocked my world......I'm glad I'm not a big roger waters/pink floyd fan........

    It wasn't bad...more shocking then anything else...I remember when his set started I texted my sister and told her "Aphex Twin is playing Hip Hop?" and she replied with WTF!

    I listen to the recording of it frequently. And I like the whole perform more now then I did then.

    there is a video floating around after he had gotten off of the stage and he wasn't aware that they only gave him an hour.

    track 10 (Gregor Tresher - A Thousand Nights) on the aphex recording is bumpin...I really enjoyed Aphex mixed some classic house into his set before going dnb crazy the second half.

    Is there a website or something where I could get the mp3 of his set? My perspective might change as well, for I am no longer in an altered state of existence....

    You have it split up into individual tracks? The only recording I have is the whole thing as one track.

    Okay, now his set makes more sense to me because I definitely thought it ended mid build-up......

    Yes I have the FLAC version which was cut into tracks. I think the first version released was just a straight mp3 rip on the board right? I remember the torrent of the flac wouldn't be allowed on DIME or other sites, so we had to wait til it was released on Demonoid.

    To add to the Aphex request, I would also prefer to hear a live set rather then a DJ set. Even though he hasn't done one in years.

    Ah yes. It was on the board where I got the recording. I don't have the software to play FLAC recording so I am at the mercy of MP3 tracks.

    if you use winamp, that'll play flacs....wmp will play flacs too (but you can't load them into your library, can only right click the file and choose play with wmp), iTunes won't play flacs though, bummer.

    yeah...I only download things I can play on my iPod. I should download winamp just to listen to stuff at home at least.

    Stars - Always welcome, but Broken Social Scene instead would cover that void.

    Mum - I think a lot of people missed their show, also maybe a little closer to night?

    Holy Fuck - Yeah, enough said.

    Post wishes not most likely, it keeps the anticipation and excitement going.

    For me, I would welcome the following:

    Goldfrapp: completely unlikely, but I would enjoy a sunset slot on either stage

    Cut Copy: a pleasant surprise, but joined late when I ditched Vampire Weekend; I would like to see their full set

    dan le sac vs. Scroobius Pip: their set was a blast, but had to leave a little early to catch Goldfrapp (part of the Friday clusterf*ck), so I missed the Prince cover

    No, I loved the whole thing. My second favorite 08 act.

    In other news, my vote is Simian Mobile Disco. I missed them because of the Waters conflict, but it doesn't look like they will come back next year.

    i liked the fact that some people looked lost as aphex twin started sounding whackier midway through the set-i jock that in paticular-but i would also have to say id like a 1 1/2 hour set playing ambient,classics and bradleys beat1 or richard d james album in its entirety for 09...or else anything from his catalog.

    You all seem to be forgetting how rare Aphex Twin is, especially in the US. He's not coming back.
