    Default Bands which (sadly) will most likely never play Coachella

    These artists wouldn't pull many sales by being on the poster, but they would definitely bring something special to the table:

    Ben Frost
    Tim Hecker
    Dosh
    Talk Talk (performing Spirit of Eden + Laughing Stock)
    Snd
    Merzbow
    Sunn O)))
    Urinals
    Emeralds
    Lucky Dragons
    R Kelly
    Tearist

    Out of all of those, Sunn might have had a chance last year after releasing Monoliths and Dimensions, and Snd might have a chance this year.

    I think every year someone suggests Merzbow as a joke. I'm just saying: when the world ends during the Sunday headliner, 2012, Merzbow should be on the main stage.

    R Kelly is always out of nowhere. He'd be great, though, right?

    Yeah. And Wolf Eyes played one year. You never know, which is why the Coachella lineup is one of the most fun ones to wait for.

    Dosh played Coachella as part of Andrew Bird's band. If that counts.

    How do we make this happen?


    The experimental or noisy/droney acts at Coachella are funny. The hype for Throbbing Gristle was a 10, but the crowd was a 2 (in terms of size). People were walking away just totally confused.
    I didn't expect people to be as into My Bloody Valentine as they were, but that set drew a lot of people.

    And yes: the fact that bands like this have played the fest is good enough reason for me to buy tickets before the lineup is announced.

    Drugs + Merzbow = redundancy

    Jamiroquai. They just released a new album (although it's still import only in the U S), so I was hoping they'd play thisyear. They haven't toured here since 05. I get the feeling they never will
