    I wasn't only saying APW wasn't great because of Radiohead alone, it was nice, but not great. Plus the amount of acts is FAR less, leaving nothing to do when all stages have terrible bands on them.

    I stil can't believe Kings of Leon were the band that played before Radiohead one night. Puketastic.

    I wonder why Metric did a signing at APW but not at Coachella. Lame panda. But then again, I did meet Emily Haines at the Viper Room...

    Kings of Leon sound like they should be on tour with 3 Doors Down and Nickelback and all those other bland rock bands.

    Amen.

    The last time I saw Blur was Failed Day Fest 03 in Jersey the main stage went:

    Beth Orton
    Spiritualized
    Underworld
    Blur
    Beastie Boys
    Radiohead

    For those of you who don't know, there is a long story that goes behind this lineup, which also included Beck before BBs but he injured himself during Underworld's set and had to cancel leaving Radiohead with a 2.5 hour set. Not to mention the fact it was supposed to be a 2 day festival in Long Island whose original lineup included The Roots and Sigur Ros, but was then cancelled due to a lack of permit 20 hours before day 1. To add insult to many injuries, it also happened to be one of Eliott Smith's last major gigs, and he was scheduled on a crappy stage at a crappy time so I missed him and it rained for 12 hours.

    However, all of the bands were painfully aware of what we had gone through so they all put on amazing performances.

    It was at crappy Giants Stadium, so they had 2 stages setup really far from one another and you had to go through security between stages. Smith was ending about 2 minutes before Radiohead began and we were too wedged into the Radiohead crowd to get a good spot. It ended up being an amazing show at least, but Elliott Smith!

    And Blur may have had hits before Song 2, but does anyone in North America remember them now? No. No they don't.
    I don't understand your portishead comment.

    and these "nobody remembers" arguments really confuse me. coachella is made up 95% of bands that north america has either forgotten, or never have and never will pay attention to.

    Radiohead = that one creep band
    Portishead = that nobody loves me band
    Blur = that whoo-hoo band
    Verve = that bittersweet symphony band
    Coldplay = that one shitty band
    The Smiths = that how soon is now band
    NIN = that fuck you like an animal band
    Beck = that loser guy
    Pink Floyd = that hey teacher leave them kids alone band

    obv, this is ridiculous, Coachella = a hundred acts that almost nobody outside Coachella fans usually give a shit about, and that's what makes it the best festival in the world. Period.


    can we all just move on now?

    Blur would be great. Plain and simple. If they take a backseat (if they play, that is) to The Killers there is no god.

    Anyone else have the great lineup poster from 04 where The Killers are practically last billed, in tiny font? Those were the days...

    I was there... this was one of the most disappointing moments of my life..... preparing for a 3 day camping festival with a ridiculous lineup only to be changed to one day THE DAY BEFORE!!!

    Do you remember how bad the Beastie Boys were?...its like they had no idea what their songs sounded like.....

    I missed Elliot Smith as well.... I hear he played at the top of a stair well or something.....

    oh yeah and it was pouring all day and was like 45 degrees in the middle of June.
