    the scum of the earth, the most wretched, servile, miserable, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilization. Some people hate the English, but I don't. They're just wankers. We, on the other hand, are colonized by wankers. We can't even pick a decent culture to be colonized by. We are ruled by effete arseholes. It's a shite state of affairs and all the fresh air in the world will not make any fucking difference.

    Sorry, Canadian. I guess "Canuck" might be a bit non-PC, in addition to being slang not widely used by you POMs (hopefully, that's no longer offensive).

    Glad you are joining the party....you will have the time of your life (and, yes, we promise no mud...I suspect that's what you need the "wellies" for, eh?).

    Definitely on our 'do not miss' list. I cant imagine he'll be touring much longer.

    Indeed, you wouldn't believe how 'wrapped up' we get for T in the Park. The weather is a total lottery, often lashing with rain one day and sunny the next. I'd still recommend it though.

    Cannot wait, the more feedback I get.... 'Its getting better all the ti-ime'

    So why did I do it? I could offer a million answers, all false. The truth is that I'm a bad person, but that's going to change, I'm going to change. This is the last of this sort of thing. I'm cleaning up and I'm moving on, going straight and choosing life. I'm looking forward to it already.

    check out

    Gang Gang Dance - From what I've heard, it sounds like the band combines influences from dance music, tribal music, noise, and experimental rock. It looks like their shows rely somewhat on improvisation, and improvised music can be extremely awesome, if done right. It also sounds really danceable too. If you like experimental music and are in any way familiar with the term "no wave" then you'll probably dig this band

    Patton & Rahzel - the fact that it's a Mike Patton project is reason enough to check this out. If you haven't heard of either Patton or Rahzel, Mike Patton is the lead man of hundreds of different bands, projects collaborations etc. and Rahzel is a highly respected beat boxer. Their live show is a mixture of rehearsed songs and improvisation and the only instruments featured are both singers' voices and Mike Patton's accompanying electronics. It's pretty experimental but if you want to watch two masters of vocal performance at the top of the game doing something really boundary pushing, then don't miss this

    Ghenghis Tron - If you like heavy music (which you should) you really need to hear these guys. A few people have been simply writing them off as "metalcore" or "screamo" or some such nonsense, but I'm under the impression that the people that say this haven't listened to a single Genghis Tron song all the way through and that these people hate metal anyway, so, in other words, they don't know what the fuck they're talking about. If you dig the grindcore (Pig Destroyer, Brutal Truth), math rock (Dillinger Escape Plan) and noise rock (The Locust, Melt Banana) you're gonna like these guys. It's heavy-ass metal combined with electronic music, so what you get are dynamic, well written songs that feature as many break beats and synth leads as they do blast beats and power chords.

    Public Enemy - I should really need to explain this one, though I haven't heard too many good things about their recent live shows so you may or may not want to skip this one

    Henry Rollins - Henry Rollins was the lead singer for the legendary hardcore punk band Black Flag. After the band broke up Rollins shifted his focus from music to spoken word, which is usually comprised of amusing stories and criticisms of the American government. His spoken word is very entertaining and is done in a format similar to stand up comedy. This performance will probably be worth checking out, but I'm not sure what he could say about the American government that hasn't already been said at this point.
    Weak.

    How about for hip-hop people under the stairs.
    AND peanut butter wolf is an incredible hip hop/Soul dj.

    Insert Fleet Foxes, a must see
    and the worldly soundingesqe Theivery Corp, an incredible live show similar to Zero-7 with some dub.

    oh and you made me realize how many non, american artists there are on the lineup, which is why I love this festival so much.
    Upcoming Shows

    Exclamation Re: USA meets the UK

    Electric Touch: these guys are from austin, tx, but their singer is a Brit expat from somewhere in the midlands, so they are one of the few (if not the only) bands representing UK and US.
    I saw them open for Razorlight and PJ Harvey at SXSW, and they blew me away with their mix of texas boogie and english swagger.

    also,
    tv on the radio- amazing.
    airborne toxic event- stellar, intelligent indie

    Dude, with your broad-reaching question people will name every artist on the fucking lineup (although no one seems to have mentioned Silversun Pickups yet for some reason). Considering it's an American festival, there are bound to be a bunch of good American artists and a few bad ones. Listen to the Coachella widget music player and skip all the British and Australian bands and make up your own mind. Are you really going to write off artists from the lineup just because no one has mentioned them in your thread?
    Ron Paul 2012!

    Upcoming Shows:
    Four Tet
    Coachella 4/20-4/22
    Death Cab for Cutie/Magik Magik Orchestra
    Radiohead
    some other bands

    Behave yourself, who said anything about writing off artists that no-one has mentioned?

    I'll use the kind recommendations provided on the basis that people with a passion for music have shared their opinions........and make up my own mind.

    You can consider Silversun Pickups added to the 'check these guys out to make sure I'm not missing the best gig of my life' list.

    Thanks for the recommendation

    Thank you for the suggestion to see electric touch. Fantastic set last night, although the crowd must have been a major disappointment to the band (there must have been only 100 people when they kicked off)
    I bought the cd and chatted with them at the signing tent - great bunch of guys.

    Electric Touch was crazy, crazy good, and I got some great pix of them. I'd never heard of them and they blew me away, kinda like Secret Machines in 2005. These guys earned their paycheck, like Weller and Sir Paul, M. Ward and Fleet Foxes and Franz. Seriously awesome Rolling Stones/ Cheap Trick copycats al the way. Someone else said "poseurs"- no, these guys are the real deal. They'll start pulling the crowds.

    But I don't know what to make of them opening for Bon Jovi in Vegas?!? These guys could blow Bon Jovi- the ultimate poser band- right off the stage. Weird pairing, to be sure.

    We would have gone on to Vegas if we had known how good Electric Touch were going to be.

    for 2011

    Let me know which US bands I should be checking out.

    In the last 2 years this thread has introduced me to such gems as Fleet Foxes, Electric Touch, TV on the Radio, Street Sweeper Social Club, Grizzly Bear & Spoon.

    From the UK I suggest you guys check out Plan B, Klaxons, Hurts and Foals

    So, you actively avoid listening to bands from the U.S.? I don't understand this.

    Smile Re: USA meets the UK

    For US bands (which I'm sure some have toured the UK or will soon enough)

    The Morning Benders
    Warpaint
    Broken Social Scene (Canadian but whatever)
    The New Pornographers (Also Canadian....)
    One Day As A Lion
    Cults
    Black Joe Lewis and the Honey Bears
    Menomena

    Those are just a few that I plan on seeing this weekend but hopefully these will give you a wide variety of rock, pop, funk and whatever other genre you may be into.

    See you on the fields!

    Where did you pick that up from Malc?

    US bands dont always release material in the UK and therefore dont get played on UK radio.

    Cheers mate!

    I've got material by the Morning Benders, Warpaint and Broken Social Scene and I'll be interested in One Day as a Lion given the RATM connection.
