    taken from last year, i say we get this beast started....

    http://coachella.com/forum/showthrea...fficial+lineup

    OFFICIAL RULES

    Requirements:

    You MUST list 25 bands. Headliners are required, so the first three names on your list will be considered your headliner predictions. For correct headliner guesses, you will be rewarded three points for each. All other correct predictions will count as one point. If you predict a band as a headliner but they end up NOT being a headliner but still a performer, they will count as one point. If you predict a band as a performer and they end up being a headliner, you get one point (not three, since you didn’t exactly call it correctly). Make sense?


    Like last year, you can resubmit your list as often as you wish until the deadline, but keep in mind that in the event of a tie, the poster with the fewest resubmits and/or the earliest final submission, will win. Again, like last year, if a band gets confirmed and added to the “restricted” list before the deadline and you’ve already submitted your list with that band on it, you get the point for it, even though that band is restricted for everyone else. Early bird gets the worm.

    All entries must be sent via email by November 1. Since confirmations are already starting to trickle in, it's prudent to start and end early. I'll post everyone's submissions on November 2 for the lolz.


    Misc:

    Just like the last two years, bands that are considered "confirmed" will be restricted. Fortunately, we’re starting early this year, so the “confirmed” list is rather short. The restricted list will tie in directly to Summerkid's confirmed list. He seems to have his head on straight, so if he makes the decision that a band is confirmed, it becomes restricted. As stated before, if you pick a band and submit it, and it becomes restricted after you submit your list, it will still count.
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    This has to have its own thread. Also, who's going to be compiling/scoring all the lists? Capt'n did it last year but she might be a little busy leading up to Nov.

    Sounds good. You might want to setup an separate email or set tag line stipulations to make things easier on yourself.

    I'm already stuck on the last headliner. Well, Bowie has to play one of these years......

    what about specifying whether or not the artist will be doing a dj or live set , if that applies to them ? extra points ?

    Complicates things too much and opens the door for all kinds of squabble about who does and does not play live/DJ sets normally and what deserves the extra live/DJ set point for each artist.

    For example: It would be stupid to get an extra point for both a Basement Jaxx dj set and an Erol Alkan dj set. Basement Jaxx does both. Erol Alkan, too my knowledge, doesn't do live sets so that's kind of inherent. Make sense?

    i meant it for artists like basement jaxx, groove armada, calvin harris, bloody beetroots that perform both dj and "live" sets. of course for erol alkan points should not be awarded for listing him as "dj set" because that is all he does.

    just a thought, maybe it is confusing and unnecessary.

    The funny part is, I had Jay Z as one of my headliners but SOMEONE convinced me that due to the whole livenation thing that it was a slim chance of happening.

    The thing about R.E.M. is that they have more specific eras than most bands ever approach having.

    The first 3 records are southern gothic Byrds-esque jangly art pop, then they move on to Americana indie, harder edged alt rock, then to Baroque, then to glam stompy 90s alt through to antique drum machine and synth chamber pop to wherever.

    So any point on the map that you decide to start at may have little to do with the other points. They were very good at reinventing themselves (and making it work) for their first 20 years or so.

    The problem with getting in to R.E.M. after the fact is that like any innovators, their signature creations have been aped and ripped off and diluted so many times over that it may be impossible to see what was so special about them in the first place.

    But the records are still quality. Even tho Automatic is their best (and one of the greatest albums ever made) you might be better starting with Fables. Back when the band were pointedly weird and arty.
    "All of you coachella 'regulars' have nasty boy pussies and itchy dick4's on your asses.
    Why don't you all make like a tree and get chopped down and die. You all have been dreadfully mean to me.
    I Hate you. All of you. None of you will ever get to see a womans chest meat or finger blast hott cougies like me.
    Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.
    Fair the well, you elitest scumbags."

    Automatic is perhaps my favorite R.E.M. record as well, but I would start at the beginning with Chronic Town (available as the last five tracks on Dead Letter Office), Murmur, and Reckoning (in my opinion, their best record). With very rare exceptions, I almost always recommend tackling the discographies of pantheon-level bands in chronological order. Why not get the story from the beginning?

    I agree with this. Except, after you're done with Document, you might as well stop, because Green is one of the worst albums ever recorded ever by anybody, and after that, you have to wade through inane pap like "Everybody Hurts" and "Nightswimming" to find anything worthwhile.

    Step off, Coachella Bound. This is my game. Start compiling your lists. Official rules and regs will be out on October 15. Deadline will be November 1.
    Seriously, guys. I look forward to this all year.

    Sad, but true.


    Also, Brad, if you win again this year, I'm going to DQ you from next years.
