    I can totally understand the Mars Volta hate as I completely agree with what crazz said but Mogwai? That's such a random band to hate. They don't even have any vocals.

    I'd be so down to see the mars volta at coachella. heard nothing but good things about their live performance.

    Also, any chance of flaming lips in '11? I know we'd be getting roo's sloppy seconds but I'd actually be okay with that

    Mogwai does have vocals, but they're minimal. But yeah, I don't get the hate, much less the comparison to The Mars Volta.

    The Mars Volta is a touchy subject for me. Can we please stop talking about them?

    Two minor problems with this:

    1) Isis broke up recently and will not reform for the foreseeable future.

    2) Massive Attack followed by Daft Punk would reduce the visual effect for DP since MA also incorporates a visual Tour de France into their sets. These two 'groups' would have to be on separate days -- and not separate stages -- since both would be fitting for main stage at this point in their respective careers. As well, many would want to see both because even though MA has a live band behind them, there are electronic elements used by both groups.

    I like you Bendulum, you were able to critique and make some valuable contributions without making me feel like a failure as that is very common on this site. Very cool, thanks.

    Don't see how The Talking Heads, who have done virtually nothing together for 20 years, are a headliner.

    Other than that, I like what you are doing here.

    LOL, really now?

    Give me one group that has headlined Coachella that has gone on a two decade hiatus before reuniting for a full performance as a headliner.

    They haven't released an album since 1988, unless you count the 1996 release without David Byrne, which, well, doesn't fucking count.

    As big as they were and as many fans as they developed, you don't put a band that hasn't done anything together in two decades as the HEADLINER of a modern music festival. They have only performed together once (in 2002) since splitting and that was like three songs for their Rock Hall induction. Maybe a second-line sub-headliner, but not a headliner.

    Plus, it would never happened. They don't get along anymore. It's as unrealistic as Oasis performing next year.

    I'm glad you don't feel that way since I also find too many board members can potentially make anyone feel utterly terrible. You're most welcome!

    Okay.

    I think the phrase you're looking for is "A visual tour de force".

    "Tour De France" is a really big bike race in France.

    I mean, I've never seen Massive Attack live, but I'm pretty sure they don't do a really big bike race in France.

    How about a half shark, half alligator, half man? I could see any two of the three together being realistic, but I'm not sure about all three together.

    I'm probably as big a TH fan as anyone on here, and I think I agree with all this.

    and god that 96 album (No Talking Just Head) was truly horrible.

    I must add that GuyInTuscon has a valid point, given their relative inactivity, Talking Heads subheadlining seems to make the most sense.

    Thank you for the correction. No really, Thank You!! I've used the description visual Tour de FRANCE a few times, and probably embarrassed myself out of my ignorance.

    The MISquote came from the front cover (bottom of right side) for a film:
