Look at the look on your face--the internal struggle is apparent. There is no hiding behind those sunglasses, obzen. You can only look in the mirror to find the one is "frontin'" in this fool's game.

Haha. Naw dude.

But the person who showed me the recording really didn't have a rep for frontin' and I sincerely believe it was Thom Yorke's voice in that rendition,becuase it definitely wasn't Chino's - that much I know for certain(plus,the arrangements were totally different). Also, I find it odd how listeners would've mistaken Deftones' acoustic version of Be Quiet And Drive(the one recorded in DJ Crook's room) for Radiohead in the first place when it clearly isn't so, I mean it was news to me when it was brought to my attention today,know what I mean? I've been privy to that version of the song since it was released as a b-side for a single during the Around The Fur days,so I never got any false impression from it. Still, I can't help but wonder if the recording I had heard was in fact the impetus of the ensuing mislabels/misinformation.

Having said that, if it in fact it wasn't what I thought I heard, it was a really air-tight impersonation of Thom/Radiohead covering Deftones, that's all I really could say. It is what it is.

And though I'd like to get a hold of my buddy sometime, I'm not tripping on it. I'm actually tripping on the prospect of Deftones being on the polo fields next year more than anything...

and Radiohead playing that Deftones cover too.

Oooh yeah.

"Exciting." My favorite part of CoS is when Alex comments in response to people who complain. "If you can’t comprehend the fact that we will self-confirm several artists, then I suggest you find a different place to visit. We’ve been doing this long enough." I don't know why that amuses me so much.

I noticed they're pretty defensive on there. I was reading their list of best albums of the decade and every time a reader left a snarky or critical comment about something on the list, a couple contributing writers would reply back about how unoriginal the comments were. My two cents is that you have to expect that from readers in a comment section to begin with, and if you can't accept that, then don't bother writing a review. Their responses to these comments weren't all that rude but still had that "fuck you but not really, but really, fuck you" tone.

guess how much fail i am full of. i, shhh, recorded the set with my cam. a few months ago i was going through my dvd-rw's and was cleaning them up so i could reuse them. pulled out one that i thought was "roger", deleted it, looked at the sticky again and realized it said "rage". fuck. there was a problem and i never could get it to transfer to my computer because i recorded it in the wrong format. the whole start of the show. was being all artistic and started out backstage and as the house lights went down and the first notes hit i proceeded out the gate into the massive crowd stage right. all of it gone. whoops.

Fuck that sucks, sorry to hear. Hey is there any chance you could PM a list of the stuff you've shot/recorded at Coachella (even if it hasn't been shared)? I remember you telling me before about how you get the camera from costco and end up taking it back, and now that I think about it, I remember you telling me about shooting Rage....I never listed any of these on my site, but I would love to if it's okay with you.

In all honesty, what could they tell us this early that would cause such a ripple of excitement? Chances are it's a confirmation of something we are already expecting.

And their list/comments/response to comments of their best albums of the decade made me chuckle out loud. Responding to people's dislike of the obvious subjectivity of their selection only seems to perpetuate the amateurish nature of the site. Not that the high-brow style of pitchfork makes their selections any less subjective.

I'm not for or against CoS by any means, but I'll say this:

Last year, they confirmed Paul McCartney as an independent confirmation about a week or so before the lineup dropped. No source to go with it.

It should also be noted that if they wanted to create a traffic spike, they would publicly advertise a big announcement as opposed to "respond to someones email with that kind of info".

It should lastly be noted that CoS isn't a minor or less-known blog. To the festival world, they are a decently known blog now and they are trying to build up their reputation. They know that people are watching and checking the site. This means that they know they will always be held accountable for big mistakes they make. They'll also be held accountable for successful confirmations they announce.

Basically, they won't put it on their site unless they know it's going to happen. They are aware of the backlash that will be thrown their way if they're wrong. To recap on everything, they would not have confirmed Paul McCartney unless they were sure it was going to happen.

I'm just stating blunt facts about how they (and other independent blogs in similar positions as them) operate. You would do it too if you were in their shoes.

Like I said, I'm not trying to endorse them. I actually dont like their writing style. Their review of Prodigy's "Invaders Must Die" was downright stupid. I also disagree with most of their lists. But to each their own I suppose.

Come 3pm, if they don't have something to show, then call them out on it.

valid points. i guess my enmity towards them is less related to their confirmations (although the way they define "confirmation" is pretty dubious) but more towards the (crappy) content of their site (reviews, lists, etc) and lack of knowledge about venues, etc they espouse to know about in some of their pieces.

on the other hand....the fact that i/we're talking about them says something. like i said...happy to eat my words if they come through on something interesting in a bit.

somebodytoldme
11-19-2009, 11:22 AM
Their site is really a mixed bag. There are times you find useful info or news on there since they don't leave a single type of music out of the cold, but then there are times when you scratch your head and think about what was going through their minds when they attended a wrote a review for a Taking Back Sunday show. When I picture their staff, I just picture a bunch of college students or new grads with musical tastes that range from slightly embarrassing to somewhat refined but still Pitchfork-inspired and oblivious to that.

As for their festival updates, they're probably the big reason I still look at the site thanks to last year's good calls. I don't know how they get their info, but my guess is that Alex is a yuppie whose made good contacts during his education and by being another aggressive and annoying music journalist wannabe.

The part that gets me in that post by Alex that someone reposted on here is when he says "We've been doing this long enough." Two years of them covering festivals that are nearly decades old is as far back as I can remember. Even then it wasn't until last year did they produce anything remotely fruitful as far as info. They haven't paid their dues and made me a believer yet.

Interpol is gonna headline a night


Interpol haven't released a new album since 2007's middling Our Love to Admire. Since then, the members of the band have been pretty busy with extracurricular activities: singer Paul Banks' solo project Julian Plenti, bassist Carlos D's short film, drummer Sam Fogarino's band with Swervedriver's Adam Franklin, Magnetic Morning.

Now, Fogarino tells Paste that the snappily dressed NYC brooders spent spring 2009 recording a new album, which is due for release via Capitol early next year. According to Fogarino, the new LP will recall Interpol's debut album Turn on the Bright Lights, Pitchfork's #20 album of the decade.

The band recorded the album at New York's Electric Lady studio, and they've focused on returning to the stuff that people loved about the band in the first place. Fogarino says, "The new record falls back towards the first. In trying to move forward, there was an unspoken realization that you can't let go of your sonic-defining tag. There was an effort in Daniel [Kessler]'s guitar tone; he rediscovered it playing in his loft space for a year without anybody. The quality of that tone, played in a big room, is just beautiful. It creates an atmosphere ... That big wash of reverb? It's back."

Fogarino also tells Paste that the band doesn't have any illusions about the relative wackness of Our Love to Admire: "[The album] was not our most cohesive moment … It was when reality kicked in as to where we were and where we were never going back to." Perspective!

New Monklish update. Don't think it's been brought up yet.



You can start holding me to this slightly
I'm more or less saying that these bands will be there:

1) As Tall As Lions
2) Avett Brothers
3) Bonobo
4) Craze and Klever
5) Deerhunter
6) Devo
7) Dirty Projectors
8) Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
9) El Gran Silencio
10) Faith No More
11) Florence and the Machines
12) Fool's Gold
13) Free Energy
14) Girls
15) Hot Chip
16) Iggy Pop and the Stooges
17) Imogen Heap
18) Little Boots
19) KiD CuDi
20) Major Lazer
21) MGMT
22) Micachu & The Shapes
23) Miike Snow
24) Muse
25) No Age
26) Panda Bear
27) Pavement
28) Perry Farrell
29) Phoenix
30) Pretty Lights
31) Quantic
32) Sleepy Sun
33) Spoon
34) Tallest Man on Earth
35) Tegan and Sara
36) The Antlers
37) The Dead Weather
38) The xx
39) Vieux Farka Touré
40) Vitalic
41) Yeasayer
42) Zoé

Muse is headlining one of the nights. My gut feeling for the other two are Beastie Boys and Pavement. I love Pavement, but I would prefer seeing them get the Pixies slot and just try to catch them on their inevitable West Coast tour.

I wouldn't expect Lady Gaga to play. For the same price that it costs to book her latest show, you could have Tool, GWAR, and the Arcade Fire play back to back to back. You'd get the spectacle, the catchy songs and the bad makeup. Personally, I wouldn't be heartbroken if Gaga plays in the Sahara. She has some fun outfits.

-----------------------------

Here's my now annual boring whining section that's not recommended for those that only care about the lineup.....

I'll probably delete some of these between now and January as I find out that things weren't true or didn't work out, and then people will call me a fraud. People will say that I'm stealing "confirmations" from the Coachella Message Board because someone made a wishlist that said Yeasayer months ago, so that means that they thought of the idea of a band playing the festival first. Wash, rinse, repeat.

I am still on a Sabbatical from posting in the Consequence of Sound comments section, so just a friendly reminder on the same old disclaimer: It's not me. So, while there's the standard internet douches that like using my name on there, this year brings a weirdo who posts as me defending myself. Creepy, a bit, but it's better that they troll me (or fake me or some concept of me) over there than here, right? There is also some aggro dude that's kinda sorta defending me, but mostly just pointing out how much of the Coachella Messsage Board internet stupity has overflown to Consequence of Sound. Alex runs a pretty good site, though.

Last complaint. A few of the message board people are a really self righteous sounding. Internet communities are usually skewed demographics of normal society, but they really could use trying the "eat their own" approach to make things more accessible for outsiders looking for information. They attempt to be informative by offering the same services as Consequence of Sound's Coachella confirmation and rumor section, but every single effort devolves into unreadable garbage. Then they have the brashness to complain in situations such as one of their members finds a Billboard article on Google News that says such-and-such band is playing Coachella and Consequence of Sound posts this found information without citing them as the source instead of the Billboard article. When presented with my makeshift blog and Consequence of Sound's easy layout, is it any doubt why people would choose not to sift through their mess? (And yes, I'm aware that "everything is on the first page". If it was deemed newsworthy enough, stick the thread to the top of the message board, change the title to something similar to "2010 Rumors: Updated Nov 17th", lock the thread, delete all but the first post, and have a moderator update it). Damn, you all frustrate me when I try to figure you out.

I'm not for or against CoS by any means, but I'll say this: Last year, they confirmed Paul McCartney as an independent confirmation about a week or so before the lineup dropped. No source to go with it... To recap on everything, they would not have confirmed Paul McCartney unless they were sure it was going to happen.

...


Paul McCartney was pretty well known before they announced it...I could have told you people he was playing 100% weeks before that. I even predicted it way back in October! I know a confirmation is different than a prediction, but still....pretty much anyone here with a brain knew macca was playing by the time CoS confirmed him.

^THIS^


the Ryan Seacrest lineup confirmed Paul McCartney nearly a week prior to lineup announement also..

the Ryan Seacrest lineup also confirmed acts that CoS hadn't called, and was correct with many of them..

GV issued a press release calling the Ryan Seacrest lineup 'completely wrong'

just sayin...

Done, I'll take this bet if you're serious about it. The terms:

I win if: Interpol are given Headlining or first subheading status for any day (main stage).
You win if: Interpol get anything else any day.

This is obviously void if they don't play this year. And we're going to need to define first subhead. I'd say it would have to be based on what slot they play on the main stage (because I believe we can agree that's where they'd be). I say this in the event that they're third on the poster under a massive act in the Sahara i.e. Daft Punk, Underworld or whatever. But if they're second billing that day I'd obviously win.

thirdly, how does it make sense that Interpol would not at least subheadline? they sub'd in 07 and headlined the Forum that year...and you people think PAVEMENT would be billed above them? wow

THIS. on the split poster Love & Rockets were billed 2nd and they played Outdoor, so i'll only go into this upon seeing set times.. (we had this same argument this year over Franz and in the end, they were bumped down upon set times being released; and in my mind, one could say that FF was more known and bigger upon their return, wheras Interpol is pretty much the same, at best, popularity/sales wise)

that's because they're playing 4/20 Fest, which is put on by the same people that put on Smokeout (Guerrilla Union), whom Cheech & Chong JUST played for.. which is also why Snoop isn't playing Coach..

http://www.guerillaunion.com/420harvest/

technically, only Cypress Hill and Snoop are confirmed, but i really doubt GV would be cool with acts playing Coachella & their competition, considering it takes place two days after Coachella and is more or less in the same county (considering GV's stance on acts even having LA dates near the fest).. regardless, Sublime (who followed them), blew them out of the water, i was pretty disappointed with Cheech & Chong's set to be honest, and they were my biggest reason for going..

He was implying that CoS has a certain degree of journalistic integrity to uphold and that being the case, wouldn't post something they didn't feel had an appropriate level of truth to it. Otherwise they risk their credibility and thus could ultimately lose followers.

Seacrest deals in tabloid nonsense. He obviously dumbed his way into a decent list and posted it. I doubt he gives a damn about Coachella but was very interested in the extra traffic to his blog. So it goes.

yeah, i'll give you that about CoS, but that doesn't change the fact that most of their confirmations come directly from this board, and my point was to show that complete bullshit guesses tend to be just as accurate (if not more so)

Sometimes we beat CoS to the ball, sometimes they beat us. Nearly all of the "confirmations" that both we and CoS link to are just sites on the internet. It's all about who stumbles upon them first. It's not like either of us are making up lists - both this thread (only the first page obviously) and CoS are making confirmed lists based on info we find online. My point was that they confirmed - not heavily rumored about; actually confirmed - Macca before anyone else confirmed it. If you think they confirmed it just because it was a big rumor that made sense and it was cool and all, then you're mistaken. they did it because they learned it from an appropriate source.

point is, CoS isn't "full of shit" like people like to claim. People just seem to hate it because they post the same info that we post here. Right now, nearly all of their confirmations link to sources that we link too. It's not like they're saying "ooh we at CoS were the first and only place to bring you the news!". If they are saying that, then by all means direct me to it.

If you want a bullshit list of names thrown around, look no further than Scoop's threads from last year.

i'm the 2nd most vocal on here about Asobi, and i wouldn't ever claim they could headline or sub..

that being said, i dont' much care for Beasties anymore, but would admit they would headline anywhere they played..

i'd say Interpol falls somewhere in the middle.. and frankly, subs are usually a household name or 'hot at that moment'.. and as good a band as Interpol is, they're not either.. now if we had HUGE headliners this year, yeah weaker subs could occur, but i don't think that's likely.. i think we'll get smaller headliners but bigger, better subs and i think Interpol will get bumped down by a larger act (ala Franz this year)

for the record, i don't think Interpol isn't good, i'm just being realistic about billing.. i'll watch them if they play, barring conflicts.

I'd say that Interpol has dropped a bit since their last album. It didn't sell nearly as well as their first two. I still think that they are a good draw, and probably would sell the same number of tickets playing the same venues as their 2007 tour, but I don't that they've done enough to climb higher than their last Coachella billing (unless their future album is groundbreakingly fantastic).

Our Love To Admire dropped off in US sales a little compared to the previous two but worldwide is their highest selling.

and with bigger subs in '10 than in '07.......

i really can't see them being billed over a FNM reunion or Blur or Pavement or Muse or maybe Iggy level of sub
(i know Iggy was billed 3rd in '03 when they were a bigger deal but they were billed under White Stripes, and Interpol is no White Stripes (even '03 White Stripes)

Well, Franz got bumped due to the combination of the biggest headliner of the weekend and a strong sub I suppose. I don't remember anyone talking about Franz's second album though.

the ONLY way they sub is the weak day, likely a Pavement or Muse headline (i could see a Who/Interpol with Orbital or Underworld in the tent possibly though)

Muse/Interpol i really don't see happening .. unless there is a lower billed Daft going on last or something, which could throw a kink in the bet as far as who's headliner and sub based on set times if Daft is billed 3rd but goes on last, is Interpol billed 2nd but going on 3rd to last still a Sub?

but if Daft plays and closes out Main i'd buy you both a beer anyway.. so let's just hope there isn't a Black Star type booking that skewers this..

This is why we can't have nice things.

I knew I was friends with you for a reason.

Our Love to Admire was the first Interpol album I bought -- actually, the only one I bought; had the other two uploaded to me -- and there are some incredible tracks on there that I would put up against anything off Turn On the Bright Lights and Antics. "No I in Threesome" and "Rest My Chemistry" were two of my favorite tracks of 2007. I hate that I missed them at Coachella since that was the first and last time I've had a chance to see them so far (although Faithless was fantastic and they'll never come around again, so good decision all the same), but if they were to headline, I'd be there. And after headliners like Jack Johnson and the Killers, you bitches are really going to get your panties wadded up over Interpol?

I don't understand how Interpol is only a "barely squeak by on the second line" since, y'know, they already played on the second line and all. But I have a question for you guys:

How many US rock bands that've come out since 2000 that fit the Coachella aesthetic (meaning indie rock, stuff like Daughtry or whatever doesn't count) can you guys name that have gotten more press and sold more albums, do you think? They haven't even sold that many, maybe barely 1.5 million over three albums, but I'm just curious. How many others can you guys name?

I mean I can think of The Strokes, The White Stripes, YYYs, Franz Ferdinand I guess, Modest Mouse, Wilco (were they around or known prior to 2000?), Arcade Fire... I dunno, help me out. The Killers, but, y'know, they suck shit. Who else?

Muse I didn't even bother throwing up 'cause they're already confirmed in my mind. Clearly way bigger than Interpol overseas easily, and I'll even go so far as to say that despite me not really liking Muse all that much yet I don't doubt that they should be above Interpol in any setlist just for the scale of the show they seem to put on. But at the same time, their last album didn't sell much more than Interpol's.

My original intention in saying "US rock bands" was more to eliminate British bands from consideration.

Monklish
11-20-2009, 02:01 AM
That being said, last time Muse toured in 2007 they played Verizon in Irvine which is 16000 capacity and Interpol played the Forum at 18000, so it looks like they're about equivalent draws. ::shrug::

I don't understand how Interpol is only a "barely squeak by on the second line" since, y'know, they already played on the second line and all. But I have a question for you guys:

I'm sure that the latter part of my list might lose to Interpol on some of the categories (sales, press, etc), but they're all relatively similar (2nd/3rd line sans Muse and Gorillaz, begrudgingly).

Monklish
11-20-2009, 02:09 AM
Yeah that's about right I'd say. Killers, Muse, Gorillaz (probably), and The White Stripes are all headliner material, of them only the White Stripes are really a solid lock (I mean, Killers too apparently). Aside from that, I don't see any of those bands really ranking as clear bigger draws than Interpol. Raconteurs after another album maybe? It also requires at least three or four albums I'd say to be considered as headliner capable. And I don't even think that Interpol is a headliner--although if this album turned out to be a real crusher and had a single as popular as that fucking Are We Human Or Are We ****** shit, I see no reason why not--I'd say it's crazy to say they're not popular enough to definitely not fall below second place on a set list.

My point is, there aren't too many bands of the last decade that have been much more substantive. A lot of you aren't fans apparently, but for me Interpol is one of the few acts that's spanned the past ten years and felt like something I could hang on to. Turn On was an awesome relief from the age of shit that was the turn of the century. And they were also a welcome hiding place from that pain in the ass wave of The Strokes imitations, not to mention The Strokes themselves. Ugh. Fucking garage rock crap.

Good point on Coldplay, I guess they're the biggest act out of all of those. But then again, they suck too. APC naturally outranks them but sadly they're not available. Also they only had two real albums. Nonetheless there's almost no band I'd rather get reunited. And Bloc Party sure, but they've steadily dropped off in recognition over these last couple albums by a lot.

if MUSE does play....as CoS is alreading confirming...they will probably be the Saturday night headliner. Muse is the big KROQ radio band to sell tickets to people outside of the message board.

Daft Punk will reportedly play live shows in the UK next year.

The French dance duo are famed for their incredible live show and toured festivals in 2007 with their pyramid stage in tow.

Over here DP headlined Wireless in Hyde Park, Rockness in Scotland and Oxegen in Ireland.

Leaked dates- which have not been confirmed by the group- claim the group will play Wembley Arena and Manchester MEN in September 2009 as well as the Dublin O2 the month before.

The last Daft tour saw them play in Robot helmets and leather jackets with a lavish light and lazer show.

It’s claimed they’ll also play other major cities including Paris, Amsterdam and New York next summer.

The group have recorded the soundtrack to Disney’s forthcoming Tron sequel and will also make a cameo appearance in the movie.

I thought Human After All, nay, almost all of Daft Punk's library was pretty boring to listen to as individual tracks (repetitive, etc).

That being said, their live set and the mixing of the tracks was masterful and created something that was way more listenable and enjoyable than any of their individual tracks were.

Therefore, it's completely reasonable to be excited about a Daft Punk live set even though you may not dig their studio albums that much. It's no different than a band you don't dig that much on record who completely tweeks their tracks for live performance and give you a different experience.

the reason they are having the softer headliner on Saturday's from now on is due to the lower ticket sales on every friday since they became a 3-day.. Bjork was the only day not sold out, JJ's day was the lowest attended of the wknd, and having Macca on Friday this year made it so people were more likely to come all three days (even with a weak saturday headliner) as opposed to just showing up the last two days of the fest like tens of thousands did in '07 & 08.. people aren't gonna come on friday and sunday and then just kick around in their hotel room on saturday.. and more people all three days means higher revenue from food/beer/merch etc..

1 year out of 3 does not make a rule, dipshit. McCartney had gigs in Vegas on Saturday if I recall. Please don't speak on behalf of Goldenvoice as if you fucking know anything.

that being said it does make sense to have your biggest act on Friday and your weakest on Saturday.

I'm not so sure that it does considering that a lot of people physically can't make it out there on Friday night. Most people don't buy 3 day passes.

right and people who buy 3 day passes look at the whole lineup so we aren't really talking about them. Since Friday is a more difficult day for people to attend you have to give them extra incentive to go (headliner being extra important here because they might only be able to get out there for a couple acts)

I think Paul McCartney is stronger than The Cure in terms of headlining.

Exactly. By putting the "weakest" headliner on Saturday, and the stronger ones on Friday and Sunday, it will be more on an incentive for people to buy 3 day passes.

It does make sense in the sense that Saturday is the day that's the easiest to attend. Friday means skipping work, and not everyone can or is willing to do this, and if they are, wouldn't they be more choosy? For example, if every concert ticket was as pain in the ass to acquire as Radiohead, I'd probably see one or two shows a year because the level of inconvenience and expense isn't worth it to me for just anyone.

Your perception of 3 day passes is slightly skewed though. They account for a fairly small percentage of the overall tickets released.

Daft Punk? Been there, done that...next.

not on Main Stage with new material you haven't..


I wonder how many of you would all be Daft Punk fans if there was no pyramid.

i wasn't there & i've never seen the video of that set, i fell in love with the audio bootleg of Daft Punk @ Coachella..

and in the bootleg, there is no pyramid.


I would. Been a fan since 97. And I didn't get to see the pyramid.

This too.. i remember when 'Around The World' debuted on X103.9..


how about Amy Winehouse or Jack Johnson on the crucifix

you guys are still basing this on only one year in which Friday has had a strong headliner.

ticket sales and the limited amount of single day tickets would say you're wrong..

the only days you could buy single day tickets for up to the day of the fest were Friday in '07 and Friday in '08, which is why you will see more & more Saturday weak headliners.. i feel confident that Muse will be Saturday (although Daft Punk closing Main after Muse would be cool)

Hey remember that really lame argument about the use of the word "the" in regards to bands like (The) Arcade Fire and which was correct? I totally disregarded it but I was wondering if anybody used this as in defense of THE Arcade Fire being correct. Its the 2005 and 2007 Coachella posters:

It looks like "the" wins.

hmmm.. i would say you're right except they also misspelled Boys Noize on the poster initially.. so while it's not concrete proof, it's certainly strong evidence..

Its the other way around. From what I have read, there are 55,000 3 day tickets available. Then 5,000 single day tickets for each day.

Just to conclude so that it doesn't go all weird again, Arcade Fire's "the" is entirely optional and they include it and omit it on a whim. On the EP, for example, the front says "Arcade Fire", the spine says "The Arcade Fire".

The important thing is what's right for you, and what you're comfortable with. Don't let anybody force their lifestyle choices on you.
