Yep according to GV they walked away from that show without being paid a dollar, that being the very definition of art, but I'm sure they cleaned house on the rest of the tour.
I tried every year since 1999 to get Daft Punk. That was a last minute fluke, and why our ad was late. I told their manager, "Here's how it's going to be. It's going to be in the dance tent, and it's going to be legendary. I'll do anything I need to do. Tell me what we need to build. Anything." They put that whole pyramid thing together. But it took a whole lot of money to get that going. The cynic in you thinks, "Well, maybe we offered too much money." But I realize what it was. We offered them enough to make the pyramid, and that's what it was all about. They spent every single dime on that production. They walked away from that show without a dollar from what we paid them. That's true art.

I'd love to see Gorillaz, but I don't think it's happening. Damon said in a interview with Q magazine that his top priority for 2008 "is the next Gorillaz thing, but it won't be called Gorillaz. It's got a name but I'm not going to tell you what it is."
the good, the bad, the gorillaz?
So it a Gorillaz project... but it's not Gorillaz? Ummmm. Another new band?
In related news, Gorillaz D-sides comes out next week. Its up on their myspace right now. It sounds good. It includes the Soulwax remix of Dare.
Oh, and congrats on being officialy Old School.
I don't think it's something with Gorillaz, but other project similar to Gorillaz. Don't know who besides Damon would be involved, though.
The D sides look nice. Bananaz will come out early next year hopefully.
Animal Collective looks mildly promising:
as you have seen we are playing ATP in may (thats the Explosions In The Sky show i believe) and hopefully doing some other european shows around that not to mention playing a few shows in japan (in march) and perhaps playing at least one show in april in the USA....
Though that could technically mean that they'll play Stubb's or a barn in Idaho.
*based upon tedious fact checking.
where is this legendary post by Dani that Radiohead will not be playing?
i need a link. i must see with my own eyes.
Click on her profile and search all her posts? Probably on the second or third page by now.
Cat Dirt Sez is claiming The Verve will be there. These people (person?) were right about Scar Jo and the Friday set times leak, so that gives them credibility.
God damn it. I hope I don't have to sit through bittersweet symphony for someone good.
The White Stripes 9/18
Actually, all bands at Coachella will perform nothing but "Hotel California" over and over again.
I really hope they are there next year.
the verve? i guess. makes sense and i dont have a strong opinion either way though in britain, they have had some huge success so i guess id b interested..
I have the feeling Stars of the Lid will be there next year
