    Default The Horrors!

    Very happy the Horrors are at Coachella. They did an amazing show at the El Rey some months back. the lead singer looks like a tall Julian Casablancas.

    One of my favorite albums last year. I went to the Detroit Bar show and I will be back for more.

    Loved seeing these guys open for the Kills a few years ago. Their album last year was one of my favorites. Would love to see them on the Outdoor, but I think they're going to land in the Mojave.

    I'm a little iffy about seeing them this year. Their prevoius Coachella set ('09?) was lackluster at best. Singer even said between songs that they'd rather be over at (forgot which band) who was playing at the same time. Maybe they're just not outdoor festival material. Saw them at a club months later and they fuckin killed it.

    I'm psyched about seeing them. Their albums are so sick.

    They were upset about playing during My Bloody Valentine.

    You're right. Couldn't remember to save the life of me. I was so disappointed. They were my must see act that year and they ended up sucking balls.

    They were dicks. Moped around and berated the audience for being there.

    I would have seen the Horors in 09 if not for the conflict with My Bloody Valentine.

    On the other hand they worship MBV so i can kind of understand. But I guess it's unprofessional.

    Dude, did you start a thread for every band you want to see at Coachella this year?

    I agree with the earlier post that The Horrors are a much better band in a dark club then at a sunny festival. That being said I'll probably still be catching their set.

    Listening to my new Coachella playlist I've formed and the Horrors song "Wild Eyed" came up. It sounds really good, curious to listen to more of them as they come up on shuffle.

    The board was not up for a few days, so I wanted to start threads for a bunch of good bands to stimulate discussion. I would not have needed to do that if the board was up the day the lineup was announced.

    lol I think you and I have a similar taste in music. I've been wanting to see the Horrors for a couple of years now. They're getting a lot love in the UK all of a sudden.

    All of a sudden? They're from the UK. All 3 of their albums have been Top 40 on the UK charts. They've always had love there.

    I watched part of their set and they were being arses so back to MBV for awhile they refused to play some of the best stuff off their first album so I gave up on them.

    To me, it reminds me of the sound that the Church and Catherine Wheel have.

    I really like these guys on record. They were dull as hell the last time they played Coachella, though. That turned out to be for all the best, because I left their set half way through and wandered over to that jaw-dropper of a set from MBV.

    Have they gotten better since?

    Saw them a couple times in 2009 and they were a bit on the dull side and completely forgettable.
