Thread: The Smiths or The Talking Heads reunion?

    Default The Smiths or The Talking Heads reunion?

    Which one would you rather see at Coachella? BTW, both have a slim chance of happening imo, even though there is a great possibility that both Morrisey and Brian Eno/David Byrne will perform there this year. Which one would you prefer?

    I don't think there is a "great" or even a "good" possibility that Byrne and Eno will be there this year...

    But choosing between The Smiths and The Talking Heads is too tough.

    I see that Apr 15 and 16 are open in his touring schedule. It all depends if he wants to spend his 2 days in between England/Switzerland gigs flying back and forth, but I don't think its impossible

    Morrissey has the open dates where coachella is scheduled. I think the Smiths is more likely but would welcome either.

    Exactly. Morrissey's schedule on the other hand is completely feasible. Not sure the Smiths will happen, but Moz himself will be at Coachella this year. Look at these tour dates...if he wasn't playing Coach, then LA would be on this itinerary

    Either would be excellent, but I'd prefer The Smiths.

    I'll take that bet. For real.

    I think we'll get Moz but not the Smiths. As for the thread's initial question; Talking Heads all the way. But Byrne has said that he will never play with the Talking Heads ever again, but I'd still take his solo act

    It seems we get The Smiths with Morrissey and Talking Heads with Byrne anyway. Not as they were in the 80s, but a pretty cool incarnation of them.

    If I can't get it in the original format then the next best thing will have to do.

    Morrissey does a great job playing songs from The Smiths. Plus, I love some songs by Morrissey, so in a way, it's really cool... but, of course, to see Morrissey and Marr reunited would be unthinkably amazing.

    Morrissey would be a good Friday night headliner if other headliners are bigger!

    Morrissey
    Radiohead
    Led Zeppelin

    I would rather would rather see the Smiths, that being said though I also reconize that the Smiths have been a coachella wet dream for years. It would sell out almost imeadiatly ( rage status) and I don't know if I want that stress ever again. Fuck it Smiths 09'

    I am so for a Smith Reunion, it would rock both mine and my boyfriend's socks off. I'd be up in the front with him dancing around like a good gay man does.

    I'm trying to figure out which audience would I like to see more of, if those acts were to perform at coachella. The tortured 40-something ex-goths of the 80s that would turn up in droves for the Smiths, or the snotty 40-something ex-yuppies of the 80's that would turn up for the Talking Heads?

    no, it's not.

    while it is true that it will take most of a day to fly to Europe from the US, it only takes a little over 4 hours to fly to the US from Europe in faux-time...

    last year, Modeselektor played Europe the nite before they played Coachella, and dan le sac vs. Scroobius Pip played Europe the nite before, played Coachella on Friday, AND flew back to play another UK show the next nite...

    ...it's not like we're talking quantum physics here.

    I would actually just start crying if the lineup was announced and Talking Heads were headlining. No matter who else was on the lineup, seeing the Talking Heads would automatically make this the best Coachella ever.

    Talking Heads and Faith No More are the only two bands who would really excite me as headliners. Unfortunately there is close to no chance that either of them will be at this year's (or any year's) Coachella.

    As much as I respect The Smiths and understand what a great headliner they would be for alot of people, I really couldn't care less about them.
