when the hells your birthday, Siobhan?
On the Kristin Hersh forum - her husband says Tanya Donelly would rejoin Throwing Muses at the ATP show if asked. Jamie, can you ask your boss to tell the Breeders people to sort this out, please? Thanks.
(PS - A Belly reunion and Tanya Donelly solo show would also be great, while you're doing the asking. Ta!)
I actually tried to post on this very subject before, but the internet wouldn't let me.
I am sure I have heard that Kim Deal is totally into this idea, also. If it happens, I absolutely swear, I will shit my pants. Then I'll take them off, put them on again inside out, and shit them again.
to the other one in may now!
...am I sharing a chalet with you again if you do this.
They should ask adam green to show up though, but kimya dawson is still a good 1 to have all the same.
added to the lineup. fucking aceness.
it's turning out to be a real 4AD fest. Now can we have Stereolab please.?
yes, and while we're at it, any chance of healing old wounds and getting the cocteau twins back together come may?
SHELLAC (house band)
I was completely set on buying tickets for Fans Strike Back tonight, and now this happens. As long as Trail Of Dead aren't announced, I'm all about the 'fans' one.
I am assuming House Band means they are gong to play between every other act every day.
I. Can't. Wait.
get in there quick if you want ti
Six berth booked for Breeders-stock. Don't suppose that means we're allowed to vote for the other one? I don't mind if none of the stuff gets booked, I just like voting for things.
sixer just booked here too. Can we have the chalet next to the wolfpack party please?
Am hoping that the she-let has been shamed into ticket action too.
has gone hard quiet, but i am sure it will happen. They bloody love pit-er-pat or whatever they are called.
was attempted here last night. I was pushing for the cha-ladies to go to the Vs the Fans weekend instead/as well. Want to see what their votes would be. Cud, Echobelly and Lenny Kravitz never played ATP before did they? We'd have noticed.
right, I'm going to write you a letter.
Oh and the residents of the babe-bunker seem to all be emailing now. Bloody copy cats.
check the site!
I'd like to see ZH though.
Did anyone go to ATP NY? Worth going next year?
to the lineup, check the site
I see from flyers handed out at the roundhouse show last night that they are over in May as support for the rescheduled Counting Crows tour. And they have free dates on 15th and 17th May - around the cardiff show. Ideal opportunity for them to play ATP, yes?
That has to be a shoo-in right?
chalets are selling out/sold out on seetickets and wegottickets
and Supersuckers added to lineup
is it 2006?
but if it were, at least they would still be worth the attention.
Call me an ungrateful cunt, but that's one pair of underwhelming selections Kim + co have made. I do hope it's cos the big offers are still under consideration...
Buck 65. Playing in Redz. Late.
Hope the Hold Steady play...
although I hate to also sound ungratefull but I hope there are less foals/css type selections as I can always skip a band I'm not into, but I fear it may attract a proportionate amount of twats to the audience...
Er yeah but other than that can't wait to see Deerhunter and Teenage Fanclub! More 4AD lovelyness such as Cass McCombs and It Hugs Back would be ace, would love to see Fog play an ATP too.
Beach House, The Fall, Wedding Present, Stereolab, Besnard Lakes, Low etc
Any of those would fit right in I think.
doing a twentieth anniversary Paul's Boutique 'Don't Look Back' set. Thank you very much.
big brouhaha about it on their website, might as well pop over to Minehead while they're at it, right? I want it to happen so much that I've made it a fact in my head.
50 Foot Wave
The House of Love
Land of Talk
I was at the Patton/Melvins atp and the pavillion wasn't in use for bands.
It seems like a shit place to have bands on.
Does it become the second stage? and Reds the smallest stage then?
Is it not really echo-ey and drowned about by the arcade machines at the back and all the people trudging past?
Are they even using it for the May ones? I hope not.
It worked out fine at the last NBC and that had 40+ bands on.
that was just for the patton thing as they didn't sell enough tickets. I read somewhere on this site that the pavilion is back for the may events.
because a lot of the bands were too loud to play in there so we had to drop the capacity so that everyone could see them in the smaller venues.
it'll be back for may.
can you also book:
School of Seven Bells
She & Him
Joy Wants Eternity
Summers - Swervedriver.
No messing - Swervedriver.
Breeders and Bon Iver are two of the pavilion stage headliners?
any tasty morsels for this on the horizon?
It's all gone quiet now I've bought tickets!
check the site
Hope it's a more accordion-based set than last time!
then ATP had better book the latest signings... Camera Obscura!
I'd love it if they were there. They'd fit right in.
New album soon too...
they've just joined the rosta
to see more female oriented stuff at this really.
Stuff like Evangelista, Laura Veirs, Amanda Palmer, Camera Obscura, Nina Nastasia etc
In mah opinion.
please book superchunk, kthxbye
the same weekend (well, close enough)
They'd be fantastic in Reds.
Although i would Bok them for sure.
I really wanna book my tickets this week.
beginning to worry we're going to the wrong weekend... two bands I love and four I've never heard of would be brilliant.
I've got the ATP fever, keep checking for updates too bloody often.
It's not good for me.
A good handful of bands to keep us quiet please!
we are indeed trying to get a handful ready to announce at once
Def need a bit of a pep on this one. Dunno maybe something that rhymes with pervdriver would suffice....
I'm gonna tear some shit up. I'm far too excited.
That would be nice, wouldn't it?
for Cocteau Twins
is the day for an update. it should be, anyway.
I am so ready. Jonathan Richman and Shearwater on their way I reckon... Wish it was May today.
we could try and get them for Pasties on the Thursday?
We would happily make way for them. You are still headlining though.
you owe us at least another 22 bands for this festival.
Please announce the next batch of confirmations.
If you are stuck for ideas, may I suggest asking the Wedding Present as they are currently booking up shows.
I think David Gedge would like the Lazy River.
Also, will you be showing the ATP film?
Has it come to this?!
I reckon we'll get our announcement tomorrow/thursday.
And yes, Wedding Present would be amazing.
Gedge said somewhere that they've never been asked to do an atp! Shocking.
Depends if Breeders are even into them of course.
Hopefully they are, and Stereolab for that matter.
I'd kill to see the master list of bands they submitted for this.
Where you with me for that Wedding Present show at Portsmouth Pyramids where Gedge was talking about the flumes? In conclusion - Gedge bloody loves a fun pool.
It is all some of us have to live for.
Is it bad that I've never heard of X?
These 'legendary punk bands' that they always get for ATP are almost always rubbish, no matter how good they were in their day.
with Whispertown - they have girls in the band and everything.
excellent, shame i'm not going to this one.
something I might like, will have to investigate these.
A bit of rockabilly/punk wouldn't go amiss at all!
Can't say I'm not underwhelmed though. My initial reaction was 'who?' aswell.
Might we get some more by the end of the week?
don't take that as writ
Keep 'em coming!
I just breathed a sigh of relief that Xiu Xiu can't do vs the fans.
That would have pissed me off. There's still a bunch on that line-up I'd like to see though that will hopefully play Manchester aswell.
Can you not lock Grails in their chalet for a week and make them play at this one too?
of this fact
Kim Deal's little black book
Who did the artwork for the Breeders ATP poster? Is it Tara McPherson? If so - will she have an exhibition with prints for sale at the event?
not sure of an exhibition, haven't been told anything at this point about that
...have conspicuously ATP-shaped holes in their respective May UK tours. I'm sure they'd love to play if asked...
have got Def Leppard and Limp Bizkit. Please could we have those too? Limp Bizkit in Reds, Saturday night at 1am would be great.
Playing Luminaire in Kilburn on 19 May - in the UK to do ATP? Hope so!
Anyone have any experience of the Taunton Station to Minehead bus service that runs? Does it take ages? How big are the queues? Can you book tickets in adv. etc - TIA
people complain about waiting but if you book in advance and turn up at the right time it's never a problem. takes about an hour and a half depending on traffic.
thanks jamie - will check the site!
Blood Red Shoes - good choice.
Why is this not up on ATP site? (Band have confirmed on their site)
on their site or myspace page anyway.
was removed from BRS' website yesterday afternoon - maybe they were told not to say anything until ATP had announced it?
Tricky, Blood Red Shoes and some hip hop stuff.
you announced all the good bands first. In future please start with Tricky and then build up to Teenage Fanclub please.
at a recent gig?
According to a few people on lastfm, Melt Banana are down on the flyer as playing at this.
No offical confirmation yet but this happened with Harvey Milk for the fans one the other day and they've since been confirmed for that.
If it is true then it's excellent news! They're definitely the kind of band we need at this. It's gonna be mosh pit time again like Taraf De Haidouks and The Locust at the last one!
that would be incredible!
on chalet situation, lots of options running out at the moment
Go on, press buttons, click some things, actually do it, make it so.
Thank you muchly, that's made my day.
I think they're now the band I'm most looking forward to seeing at this.
It's gonna be ACE!
I want to go home now and stick Cell Scape on stupidly loud.
Th' Faith Healers
Madlib & J. Rocc
Tara McPherson art exhibition
According to the site?
I cannot read.
if you want to be on a waiting list to get one of a bunch of 2 berth chalets that were previously held back for production purposes, email email@example.com
like the wolf
gotta be at least 10-12 more bands to come eh?
still holding out hope for stereolab...
anyone as good as the first six bands to be announced. Cos, let's face it...
The last lot was pretty underwhelming.
We might have to wait though, everyone's got boners for the fans one at the moment This Breeders one seems to be taking a back seat.
have suspiciously ATP-shaped hole in their UK itinerary. Admittedly, their spare UK date is down as London TBD on their site, but Americans think everything south of Glasgow is London, so mabe they can be duped.
Just thinking that Low would be a great addition! Seeing as two of them will already be in the country with RGC....
RGC are in Spain that weekend, having played the Fans ATP the week before...
ah well, it was worth a shot.
but The Hold Steady still have the 15th and the 17th free.
times new viking
el mariachi bronx
thanks for the update
confirmed; their first ever UK show and its also a uk exclusive
How many more left to be confirmed? 10 or so?
taunton-minehead coaches should be on sale next week
to the final batch of bands this week.
any chance the fuck buttons can do both?
my last chance wishlist as follows:
tv on the radio
well, i can dream can't i :-)
They're having a bit of a break, apparently.
I'm hoping for The Fall, The Wedding Present or Beach House.
We shall see.
one of my favourites from last year!
for people selling a 2-birth apartment?
what are the chances of finding one at this short notice?
Dianogah, Buffalo Killers, Distortion Felix confirmed. ATP, have you forgotten to book bands we might have actually heard of!!!
on all the other bands we have heard of!
Dianogah and Distortion Felix both sound very promising from their bio's though.
How many more artists should we expect to be announced, roughly?
i am looking forward to seeing lots of new bands, but jamie please could we have an easter treat and have the final few bands being more of a popular draw? wedding present are twiddling their thumbs now that their appearance at red live festival is cancelled.
it's about time they played an ATP.
I was hoping for at least 1 more band that I'd heard of. Still a good line-up
discovered them at the shellac ATP. if you've never heard of them, it's worth taking a punt.
that Dianogah are ace. You lucky buggers.
please,doing the crazy rhythms album.
I'm thinking of starting a rumour that Pixies will be playing at Minehead - would you be able to confirm whether or not the value in doing so will be in:
a) It actually happening and me looking like a semi-coherent Nostradamus, or,
b) That there's not the slightest possibility of it ever happening but I will be able to wind up friends and acquaintances good and proper.
... say it ain't so.
This rumour has got in my head and stuck. Would be so cool for them to wait for it to sell out then announce this.
... but as with all great plans there's always the possibility of some collateral damage.
Of course, the only way to effectively protect yourself from the rumour is to spread it.
I have convinced myself that much, that I am now telling everyone and anyone.
By the way, see you down the front for the Pixies!
Are the Pixies there?
I must go and tell everyone.
When are the final few acts going to be announced? And will they make me do a wee wee?
...that the ATP website refers to the three venues as Centre Stage, Reds and Crazy Horse - so, nothing in the Pavilion this time then? Does this mean the capacity of the event is smaller this time (compared to EITS, which was the only other Minehead one I've been to)?
that the Pavilion is in use. Phew.
we'll fix it. we will be using the pavilion.
it's high time this here barn dance got wrapped up, no?
but this doesn't count as a proper addition.
Please, Jamie. Please complete the list of rock.
please ATP could you wrap this up, finish the line up and release the set times, thanks!
(PS - Wedding Present!)
Wedding Present or Gravenhurst even, they're only down the road in Bristol. Yeah, I know, dream on....
Oh, I got my tickets the other day. Has everyone else got theirs through yet?
and stage times on site
frickin pleased about this forthcoming weekender
knitting with kelley + scarlett thomas competition announced
cinema times soon?
gimme a few hours ;-)
I didn't watch anything at the cinema at the last NBC but I may end doing this time.
Seeing as it looks like it's going to be raining all weekend.
So the beach is out then, ah well, atleast there's shitloads of decent bands to be watching indoors!
My goodness. Can the cinema be converted for a mass viewing? I only spotted this Saturday night clash the other day.
as a clash?
Mind you, I am more bothered about the collision of a reformed Faith Healers set and the fateful events taking place at St James' Park.
