Really excites me. Can't wait to see the production they must have lined up and the new stuff. I hope they're playing Brixton soon!
Sean - must be really tempted to travel this year? Phoenix, Postal Service AND Stone Roses!
Near the bottom of the bill. -biffy clyro!
Looks nowhere near as good as last year, think I'll just hit Primavera instead.
Did Phoenix become big enough to headline???
And I thought grinderman were over?
to see the return of La Roux - and the Faint playing; forgot they existed
have they even released an album since 2009?
Even that (20,000 capacity?) venue felt like a stretch. Fair play to them though.
Right there. Near the middle of day two.
OMD on the sunday!
I have no way of going to this (or interest really) but this news (and The Make Up still playing gigs) please me greatly. It's a good friday so far
Nick Cave on before the Chili Peppers :'''D
given Cave's previous comments about the Chili Peppers.
the chili peppers won't come into contact with any other band who's playing anyway - they're (well, kiedis is) the sort of cunts who'd insist the entire backstage area was cleared before they came on so they could be carried to the stage on their golden thrones
but you can see why having the two side by side on the bill would raise a smile.
this pleases me
Or The Time.
Hope that means he's going to do some more solo shows.
I just wish festivals would stop booking RHCP. Sure-fire way to kill a festival
primavera is miles better and miles nearer
And it is just as fun.
Some of my favorites: Metric, The Stone Roses, Blur, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, How to Destroy Angels, Stars, Tegan and Sara, Purity Ring, The xx, Phoenix, The Postal Service, New Order, Hot Chip, Bat for Lashes, Richie Hawtin, Wild Nothing, Booka Shade, Red Hot Chili Peppers, La Roux, OMD, Paul Oakenfold, Dinosaur Jr., Jessie Ware.
Would give less of shit about everything else.
also polica, gaslight anthem
