Hey Tim. What do you think?
Hey Tim. What do you think?
I was REALLY hoping that Doves, Super Furry Animals, The Bees, and/or Massive Attack would be on the line-up; so I'm a little bummed about that, but not that much.
I have a lot of research to do though. I know a good amount of Friday, but not a lot of the other two days.
What do you think?
I'm very pleased. That list is full of things I already love, and pretty stacked with things I have been meaning to pay more attention to. I don't see a way that I'm not going to die of conflicts. Or at least contract a nasty infection of conflicts.
It's not actually something I have a lot of experience with. I don't dislike britpop, but I haven't ever really gotten into any of it. I mean, who has the time. I have eighteen kids, and neglecting them keeps me pretty busy.
I just watched Cocaine Diaries: Alex James in Colombia right now on BBC America. You guys should check it out. It's pretty interesting to see Britpop stars out there on the front-line doing anthropology.
And just for fun:
Ahem.. remember these guys?
SUPER FURRY ANIMALS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM
Digital release 16th March on the band's own website -
www.superfurry.com, physical release 13th April on Rough Trade Records,
21st April for U.S. release.
"It's recognisable as a melodic SFA record, but is very focused
musically as a cohesive album. And no country rock as Daf has
developed a pedal steel phobia. Which has confined the great
Nashvillian instrument along with the Saxophone to the banned
instrument directive of the SFA board.
and the US release date is just in time for coachella!
sorry for blabbering but this thread just made me go through all my high school cds.. blur, ride (oh god), curve, pulp, suede, adorable, lush, elastica... i'm old & very happy right now
I loved these guys too
I still am not over Oasis breaking up. Maybe it can lead to a Ride reunion now that that one guy is free.
Yeah. Boner Jams 2011. See you there.
I spin straight up east coast thug hip-hop....mixed with brit-pop.
"All of you coachella 'regulars' have nasty boy pussies and itchy dick4's on your asses.
Why don't you all make like a tree and get chopped down and die. You all have been dreadfully mean to me.
I Hate you. All of you. None of you will ever get to see a womans chest meat or finger blast hott cougies like me.
Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.
Fair the well, you elitest scumbags."
— Faxman75, who has clearly had enough
WOW. Talk about coming out from the dead.
1. 24 hour people has been playing in my head for the past 26 hours.
2. I hope any brit act coming over has taken steps to ensure their passport is valid and that they have plenty of time to avoid being held up by any type of natural disaster.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
sometimes I miss britpop.
the rest of the time I realize it was never nearly as good as I thought it was at the time.
reminds me, I am still forgetting to go to Leisure here in SF...
Anyone remember Lush? Shoegazers went a bit Britpop for their final album.
4/8 Ride @ The Roxy, 4/10 St. Vincent @ The Cosmopolitan, 4/14 Barry Manilow @ Staples Center, 5/2 Desert Daze, 5/8-10 Levitation, 5/16 The Juan Maclean @ The Regent, 6/10 Emmy the Great @ Hotel Cafe, 6/12 Emmy the Great @ Hotel Utah
haha. I liked that song.
Mark Gardner from RIDE will be headlining The 5th Annual Clean Air Clean Stars festival up in Pioneertown Ca. (Pappy & Harriets) this year 9/23-9/24 The performance will include classic RIDE songs as well as a special guest ensemble and material spanning Mark's solo career. I've been going to this little fest the past few years and its a blast! Plus this is probably closest we get for a Ride reunion for a while.
Check out Emma's post-Lush project if you haven't already. Really poppy and fun with some dark edges. Works well with open landscape driving...like in California deserts. It probably works walking around Paris too though. Fuck, it just works, okay.
this is retarded
Liam Gallagher sues Noel Gallagher for libel
The Gallagher brothers couldn’t agree while Oasis existed, so of course they can’t agree about the band’s spilt. Or, more specifically, how the band split, which took place back stage at Paris’ Rock en Seine festival in 2009. As Rolling Stone reports, Liam Gallagher is suing Noel over comments he made in the aftermath of the band’s breakup.
“I have taken legal action against Noel Gallagher for statements he made during the Electric Cinema press conference on July 6th during which he claimed Oasis pulled out of the 2009 V Festival Chelmsford gig because I had a hangover,” Liam said in a statement. “That is a lie and I want Oasis fans, and others who were at V, to know the truth.”
“Noel also falsely stated that the demise of Oasis followed a massive row in which he claimed I demanded to advertise my clothing range Pretty Green in the Oasis tour program. The truth is there was no such discussion or row between us. There are many reasons why Oasis split. But it had nothing to do with my clothing range.”
Liam added that the lawsuit is not about money. Rather, he’d like an apology. “I am used to being called all sort of things by Noel and I have in the past said things about him, but what Noel has alleged this time went way beyond rock-and-roll banter and questioned my professionalism.”
Sounds like the beginning of a great film script. We’ll keep you updated.
