    At Coachella a few years you complained about the waft of burning flesh from a nearby barbeque. Has that been a problem since at outdoor shows?

    Not at all, and interestingly the agents for Coachella offered a 100-per-cent vegetarian event for the following year if I would agree to headline with Johnny Marr as the Smiths. Fascinatingly they made it clear that they would 'not require' the Smiths' bass player or drummer ... which I thought certainly said something.
    No gyro bowls? Fuck that shit.

    If this happens, I'll be cooking a lot of bacon at my camp site.
    And I'm a vegetarian.

    Here it is fwiw, and I suspect not much:

    It’ll just be a field full of people in DM shoes, crying
    Mon, 01/10/2012 - 15:28 by Tim Chipping
    We’ve now heard from several credible sources that The Smiths have agreed to reform in 2013 for four UK shows. And despite such rumours turning out to be total balls in the past, this one has enough weight to it that we’re prepared to call it confirmed, and hang the consequences.

    What we learned before we stopped watching The Newsroom was that you have two sources before you run with a news story. And we’ve got more than that, so…

    What we’re hearing is…. The Smiths will reform in 2013.

    It’s a done deal.
    Dates are booked.
    Glastonbury is one of four dates, presumably the Saturday on the Pyramid stage.

    However, we have conflicting reports on who exactly is reuniting.
    One report says it’s all four. Another says it’s only three (which would mean Mike Joyce still hasn’t been forgiven).

    To add even more intrigue, let’s not forget that Coachella Festival promised to go 100% vegetarian next year, in an effort to attract a Smiths reunion. Morrissey himself made the following withering comment about the offer: “Fascinatingly they made it clear that they would ‘not require’ the Smiths’ bass player or drummer… which I thought certainly said something.”

    The same festival dangled several million dollars in front of those other dysfunctional 80s indie legends the Cocteau Twins, only to have Liz Fraser pull out of the reunion a month before. So we know they've got the cash and the inclination.

    And that’s all we know. What we think is that this all makes complete sense. Despite turning down $75 million for a Morrissey/Marr world tour in 2007, that was before Steps The Stone Roses had reformed. And wouldn’t it please Steven immensely to overshadow their third coming by doing the one thing he always said he wouldn’t do? There'd not be a bigger story in music. In 2013, a Smiths reunion would feel like Mozzer’s last laugh, rather than a reheating of past meat-free glories.
    And there are few things more guaranteed to get everyone to stop calling you an arsehole than reforming the band everyone likes (it worked for Mike Love. For a bit).

    Our guess is they’ll do V Festival too, as they pay the most (Glastonbury pays relatively little) and Morrissey played there in 2006 and 2011. And some kind of secret gig in Salford would probably be appropriate.

    So there you go. We’ll still believe it when we see it. The slightest sniff of a pork scratching is likely to send him scurrying back to his castle.

    Meanwhile Craig Gannon keeps refreshing his Hotmail page in a state of desperate optimism.

    that vegetarian article has been going around for a few days, but i just didnt want to believe it.... if this happens ill be slangin' meat back at camp.
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    ehhh... Sounds too gimmicky. I think he's screwing around with the interviewer. The logistics and the potential money lost if you have to suddenly abort 80% of the onsite menu would be substantial. I would imagine GV has contracts with food vendors that cover multiple years.

    That just a pedestrian's take on this. I hope I'm wrong and I very well could be. A Smiths reunion would have to be one of the anticipated headliners in Coachella history.

    Smiths would guarantee a sell out both weekends especially if it was their only stop in SoCal. Like Caifanes, the Smiths will draw many Mexicans who will buy all of the tickets.

    Oddly enough, I ate mostly vegan that whole weekend (Coachella 2010) that would have gone "100% Vegan."

    The curiosity factor and getting a set of just Smiths songs makes me want this to happen, but at the same time I wonder if a Smiths reunion would be worth the sacrifice of barbecue and crab fries. I had a great time seeing Morrissey in '04 and '07, but that Coachella set was uninspired. I've watched some performances since then on youtube and I got the same lack of feeling.
