Do you guys think we'll see any incarnations of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez this year? He has been to a few Coachellas (2012-At the Drive-In, 2011-ORL Group, and another as the Mars Volta) and he has been touring with Bosnian Rainbows (they just put out an album). Personally I hope he discards his Bosnian Rainbows band (which is pretty bland in my opinion) and tours as El Grupo Nuevo de ORL again with Zach Hill and Cedric. Zach will probably already be there with DG and Cedric is never far from Omar. I'm gonna cross my fingers.
No one actually cares and I don't need to listen to more than one song. Well no one who has any real discerning or good taste in music. Lemmings, know nothings etc will flock to wherever they're playing next! Could this band be any more UNORIGINAL? A dash of Edward Sharpe, a pinch of Mumford and more than a spoonful of Arcade Fire. Perfect sound a like crap for the sheeple of today...
Not all bands from Iceland are unique and creative I guess..
3rd rate watered down Arcade Mumford Fire!
ps Frankly I don't care if you listen to them or not. Just making my point!
Perhaps Blur will do an actual North American tour?
Even if they do come up here, they'll only play a couple shows (LA, NY, Chicago, Toronto and etc). And remember this....
“Blur is planning a relatively extensive world tour next year, including Europe, Japan, South America and Australia,” explained Ian Huffam of X-Ray Touring, who has already nailed shows at the Primavera Sound festivals in Barcelona, Spain, May 24, and in Oporto, Portugal, May 31.
Looks like no Starfucker. I'm sad that these guys get absolutely no festival love. I'm assuming it's not intentional on their part because they were all excited to play their first festival ever last year at Outside Lands.
It's true that his mom died some days before the festival, not blaming/judging him for that. I guess my point is that he half-assed it at every ATDI reunion show, not just Coachella.
I mean we have to realize he is no longer the feisty little Puerto-Rican he was in his ATDI days, he doesn't go crazy any more. As far as his music performances go, he is still a very good musician, and a figurehead for progressive music. In terms of sound Cedric was the only one that sucked at the ATDI performances, the rest of the band was spot on. I would not mind seeing ORL as long as it isnt with Teri Gender Bender.
