    Default Monklish = 77.27%

    CORRECTED: 80.30% -- Moved 2 mistakes to the "On the lineup list"

    So, I compared the most recent Monklish lineup (Link Here) and found that it had a 80.30% success rate. Monklish indicated 66 bands that would be a "Personal Guarantee" with only 53 appearing on that list.

    I will let you decide if that is "successful" or not...

    Bands that Monlish said are "Personally Guaranteed" and that actually appears on the official lineup:

    A Place to Bury Strangers
    Bajofondo
    Band of Horses
    Buraka Som Sistema
    Calexico
    Christopher Lawrence
    Crookers
    Crystal Castles
    Drop the Lime
    Fleet Foxes
    Franz Ferdinand
    Friendly Fires
    Girl Talk
    Glasvegas
    Gui Boratto
    Hercules and Love Affair
    The Hold Steady
    Instituto Mexicano Del Sonido
    K'Naan
    Late of the Pier
    Leonard Cohen
    Los Campesinos
    Lupe Fiasco
    Lykke Li
    M.A.N.D.Y.
    Mastodon
    Mike Patton + Rahzel collaboration
    Morrissey
    My Bloody Valentine
    N.A.S.A
    No Age
    Noah and the Whale
    Paul Weller (of the Jam)
    Peanut Butter Wolf
    Public Enemy
    Roni Size
    Sebastian Tellier
    The Airborne Toxic Event
    The Black Keys
    The Bloody Beetroots
    The Brian Jonestown Massacre
    The Bug
    The Gaslight Anthem
    The Killers
    The Knux
    The Presets
    Themselves
    Tinariwen
    The Ting Tings
    TV on the Radio
    White Lies
    X
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs


    Here are a list of bands that Monklish said are going to be there and are not listed on the official lineup (yet):

    Adele
    Armin Van Buuren
    Chairlift
    The Chemical Brothers
    Deerhunter
    Evil Nine
    Kings of Leon
    Kode9
    Lucent Dossier
    Mr Oizo
    Neil Young
    O'Death
    Primal Scream

    All those artists were comfirmed through their myspace or labels or whatever...there was no "intel" for that...just time on the computer...no special inside source...All the headliners were painfully obvious...except The Cure...which no one talked about...I think they were what held everything up...there was nobody for Sunday...Bowie and god knows who else fell through...and it took GV a couple weeks to accept that was the best it was gonna be this year...

    So, in other words, if they were all confirmed on their myspace sites (etc.) then Monklish should have had a 100% success rate -- I wonder what happened...HA!

    Monklish with 80%.

    I would say it's impressive. Easily better than all the bloggers. COS also gained some credibility this festival season as they were the first to independantly confirm McCartney from what I recall.

    it is impressive, considering he called MBV and Yeah Yeah Yeahs as confirmations. There wasnt even any word or rumor of them playing at all.

    Word. CoS played it safe too, not confirming that many acts. Monklish nailed a lot of his personal guarantees. I'm just kinda dissapointed not to see an Avalanches reunion there.

    First... The Avalanches aren't a reunion. They are in the middle of recording their new album. They have been for the last few years. They never broke up.
    Second... It sucks they aren't on the line up. Perhaps they are part of the late Sahara additions Dani was talking about?

    Oh shit, that would be beyond perfect for me. And a new album? When's it coming?

    Uhhh... 2004. Then 2005. Then DEFINATELY 2006. Then maybe 2007. Then probably 2008. Then a tentative release date of March 2009. But who knows. Its been a brutal wait as someone whos been a fan since Since I Left You came out. The Avalanches were one of the very first electronic groups I got into.
