    so no dis. but i saw MIA i think back in 02 and well....i dont get it. I saw her video the night before the concert and i kid you not it looked like a scene from a little kid show....like some mickey mouse happy hour stuff. Yet at the concert people were about to riot if she didnt come back out on stage. She kinda like regina spektor (i think thats her name) kinda dont get her either...i guess weird is good?

    Didn't Dubya ban her from the US for one of her song lyrics? I think it was line about the PLO or something...

    regina spektor = sings with a piano

    M.I.A. = dancehall

    regina spektor <> M.I.A.

    I don't think they allow terrorists in America.

    Except those in Washington.

    Bring back M.I.A. and Lady Sovereign, and add in Shystie and the Streets. Lady Sov is touring with gwen, I am sure she can come over for a day (in Ca and AZ during Coachella). All of those with Lily Allen, would be a great euro set.

    M.I.A was amazing when I saw her in Bakersfield while opening for Gwen. She was great, but like you, a lot of the audience didn't get it. She was a great opener, but the audience didn't know anything else but gwen. Damn rude audience!!

    yeah, i WORKED the m.i.a./stefani show in bakersfield and i was so happy to make up for missing her at coachella. all the people over here have no idea what good music is. surprisingly, the kids in my area (single-digits) were asking about the artist and the songs. there is hope for the future.

    M.I.A. , Shystie and The Streets would be the shit. Lady Sov is cool and all but I have had to choose between her and M.I.A. It'd be M.I.A. for me

    Why haven't the Streets been at Coachella yet? Has Mike Skinner just turned Goldenvoice down or have schedules not made it possible? A Grand Don't Come For Free is packed with terrific songs -- I need to see him!

    I remember that! I was like George Costanza running out of there knocking old women and children over trying not to get stung! Hahah, fuck I hate bees! Good times though...
