    Seriously. It really did seem that Sweden and Britain were demographically over represented this year in the bands, which I liked.

    H.M. I thought Destroyer killed it despite the small crowd. They sounded really good despite the lack of energy from the lead singer.

    5. I'm waffling on this one, but I'd probably put Gotye in the last spot... aside from the drummer totally losing the beat in the first song... to the point that the rest of the band turned around looking at him like "what the fuck, man?"

    What was atrocious about it? Ginn was having fun, but it wasn't anything special. Not horrible by any means.

    I respect Greg Ginn as a musician, but I just couldn't tell what he was doing up there.

    Because the Brits and Swedes still prefer Rock 'n' Roll over Hip Hop and Electronica, not that way anymore in the States. If you want a decent Rock 'n' roll portion in a festival line-up these days, you almost have to look oversees to fill a whole bill. Not enough rock 'n' roll talent in America alone to do it without bringing back half the same acts every year.
