Built to Spill are playing the 2nd ATP! And fans get to decide who else can play! I'm going for sure.
is already a news story over there ->
I'm still going.
I was all excited about Built to Spill playing over here. I have never seen them live and now I can't wait. I can't understand why there albums don't get released over here. Center of the universe is possibly the best pop/rock song ever written.
I mean, they were one of the best bands of the 90's, and then they just chose to forget about anywhere outside the US, like stop releasing albums outside the US and never tour anywhere else.
Its been 7 years since they last played a UK show (I was at both of them - Dingwalls and Glastonbury).
But now I have to thank ATP for picking them - inspired choice guys! I need a ticket now.
Modest Mouse I was talking to there tour manager who knows Doug Martch. He doesn't like touring anywhere other than America because he doesn't like being to far from his son.
I'm wondering if Built to Spill may support Modest Mouse at that Earls Court gig.
as well as seeing Built to Spill again, was if Calvin Johnson was invited to ATP as well for a Halo Benders set. Him and Doug are a great team and they've never played the UK. I think it would be quite a coup for ATP.
are amazing. i have to go to this. broken chairs live might be a bit overwhelming!
on the Live album is bloody brill. I will listen to that on Christmas day and get drunk with my dad.
