    Good question. I don't think there's a single band in the world I want to see more than them.

    They have been and will be one of my fav's. They would never play coahella, its not their gig... that is if they even played anymore.

    As for the other weird ass responses, I have no idea... and frankly if they are "uncool" then that is fine by me. I listen to music I love, not cool music.

    They've been on hiatus for 6 years or so. I would certainly welcome a return.

    They could dig up Jimi Hendrix's old bones, slap some stem cells on that bitch, and people would still talk shit and shout "fail" if he was going to play Coachella.

    Nice idea, but that I can't imagine that would ever happen.

    The chances of them even playing again are insanely scarce, but if it were to happen, it really wouldn't be at Coachella...for so very many reasons. A good number of those reasons litter these pages, but sadly those reasons are beyond a few meatheads.

    Am I really the only one who would sell his left nut for a Silver Mt. Zion performance?!

    They'd never play either, too corporate. But God. They'd just destroy. Probably equivalent to that of a Godspeed set, actually.

    People only got in to them when Thom Yorke discovered boring music in 1999 and wondered why he had wasted so much of his life up until that point not making any. After which, he wouldnt shut up about it/them.

    So peeps pretended for about 18 months to be really in to atmospheric 20 minute "room sound" epics that didnt really go anywhere at all....until no one was looking.
    At that point they either soild their CDs or (more likely) left them out in conspicuous places for visitors to see so that they would know how smart and cultured they were.

    Around the Gulf War, GYBE issued a political statement online about how you should never leave the house as city sidewalks are made with the same concrete that is used to create the buildings that the people that make bombs meet in and that that level of material support for economic imperialism and global jingo-industrial-hegemonenocidery is impossible to divorce from dropkicking limbless Congolese orphans into a bonfire yourself.

    Naturally this led to their inevitable breakup, allowing them to focus more sharply at an individual level on being insufferably obtuse.



    So sure, bring em to the fest so we all have a "cred" act to pretend to like just after lunch. Probably in the Gobi. I'll bring my constipated look and a copy of whatever pretentious volume the hipsters are pretending to read right now. I will be pretending to read it at a right angle to my chest so that its conspiciously visible to the rest of the crowd

    No. Have seen them both, and both were/are sublime. ASMZ probably edged it, if I can bring myself to say that.

    It's rare enough that they play in the US, it's certainly not going to be a festival like this. I can't imagine them playing any US festivals beyond ATP.

    Who knows what's happening with them now anyway with last year's line-up changes.... Part of me worries that they too will be shelved like God's Pee...

    Because he's a moron with nothing else to say. Whatever the response, he was would have come up with the same crap. That happens when you don't have two brain cells to rub together.

    Godspeed have some of the most jaw-dropping, shiver-inducing musical build-ups ever composed. To claim otherwise is to reveal that you gave up on them too quickly.

    They're one act I'm positive I will never see at Coachella. But I'm hoping against hope I get a chance sometime, wherever it might be.

    And on that quote, I belive this thread should pretty much be done.

    I don't think this thread should be done with.

    GY!BE is an amazing band, and no I'm not a fucking hipster. I have loved them for years, and will continue to listen to them. I'm huge on the whole post-rock movement.

    And seriously, East Hastings totally made the end of 28 Days Later.
