what was that J-Pop covers album like?
I really didn't actually expect that to happen :)
I AM SO EXCITED RIGHT NOW, I DID A LITTLE JIG AT MY DESK AT WORK
You offered him as much as Autechre, GGD and Passion Pit!?
Get. The. Fuck. In.
OH, HOW MUCH AM I GRINNING RIGHT NOW? TOO MUCH.
ARE TICKETS LEFT ON SALE?
some 2 berths on gigantic right now, 4 and 6's on seetickets, wgt, stargreen, lastminute.com
but i'd take a guess if you have a look at the shoutbox on the event page somebody's already moaning.
not to mention all others, only three weeks away.... omgomgomg
But this means that only 1 band got added from the 2nd round of fans voting... and that was Fuck Buttons, doooh...
first choice yay PARTY HARD.
for one of his motivational speeches. Surely.
Cannot wait !!!!
I hope this doesn't just mean him arsing about with a keyboard. Full band?
... surely a solo show suggests just him and no band...
it's not funny any more.
Don't make it happen again.
so I'm just going to hope Mr WK proves me wrong. I'm happy for everyone that's happy, anyway.
he was GREAT then, so I'm hoping for good things.
So no Autechre or Gang Gang Dance?
But did ATP seriously spend the budget for Sophie's choice, Autechre and Gang Gang Dance on Andrew WK?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUOvnbCtnVQ&feature=channel_page - I posted this in the other thread, but it's certainly worth seeing.
was Sophie's choice, from what I gather.
I am pretty gutted that the other 2 didn't even get a look in but ah well.
I'm enjoying the fact people keep using the phrase 'Sophie's Choice'. It's like I have to choose which of my chalet mates to sacrifice to the Nazis.
Yeah, AWK was my choice, I didn't vote for those others.
WOULD you chose to be sacrificed to Nazis??
maybe atp should have got insane clown posse to perform?
i'm glad James is going away this weekend now :D otherwise i would be listening to AWK FOR THREE DAYS STRAIGHT.
every day that i AM around :D
LINDA LINDA LINDA
LINDA LINDA LINDA
for someone who has only ever heard the "hilarious" I Get Wet album, what advice do people have, or other albums that I should listen to to change my opinion here?
Seriously very very good. Very.
is absolutely amazing.
atp's not-enormous budget being spent on dis in-jokes.
i think you'll find that the percentage of people going to ATP aren't members of DiS and AWK was consistently in the top 10 of every voting week.
We singlehandedly kept him in the top 5 for the last few months, didn't you know?
i forgot DiS members get 17 votes each.
Someone needs to take that Jamie Summers down a peg or two.
Luke Leighfield would be headlining.
anyway, he's not a DiS injoke, I liked him in 2001 or whenever and I couldn't even use the internet then!
I was busy being part of the team that gave him a Jamaican flag to put on his drum riser at Reading. Then I sent an email to a fax to my Twitter about it.
so that I could hand them to people and tell them what I was currently doing/thinking.
I'm glad that this has made a lot of my friends happy.
gang gang and autechre were both unavailable.
it says on the website that you reached your budget limit which means that you couldn't have booked them even if they were available. Unless you are suggesting WK costs the same as Autechre and GGD combined?
Presumably ATP were going to keep going 'till another fan artist confirmed? However, ATP reached the budget limit, so they spend that money on Andrew WK?
they said no.
we went for him.
"special solo show" is code for "spoken word set"
2 bands from our round two list AND one from Sophie's list. Not either.
To quote you Jamie "we will continue down the list until two bands confirm". The goalposts have changed, don't suggest otherwise.
Especially after we were told there'd be two from the final round 1 selection and only !!! confirmed (and then WitTR declined from the previous chart) so we're two down on round 1 and now one down on round 2.
I do like the lineup, but that's twice we've ended up with fewer than we were told.
Unless AWK costs four times as much as the likes of !!! or whoever, there's an unsatisfying degree of short-changing going on here.
you lot will grumble about anything won't you?
Summers, tell them Buttmuncher have been added, playing in the Arcade at 5am on the monday morning and put everyone out their misery.
going back on your word is such a tiny, unimportant thing
not getting what you pay for from a company you really trust is also tiny, should have not brought it up!
is def the strongest line up of the summer
An absolute classic of the genre. I'll be chuckling about that one for years to come; it's so apt, witty and clever.
So of course if a festival has a great lineup no-one should be allowed to be annoyed at being misled. How foolish of anyone to expect better.
but that should mean two other bands from the list :p
I think I chose wisely not to buy.
Just to go off on a tangent, this is surely the worst ever ATP line up? Or can people offer others?
May ATP doesnt look particularly good either.
This is great news, but I do feel a bit short-changed with regards to the number of bands playing.
there are now 41 bands confirmed plus 6 on the spoken word stage.
"We will be going through it one by one until two of them confirm."
ATP used the second round of voting as a way to create excitement and sell tickets, and failed to deliver their promise. Seems like a very un-ATP like thing to do.
they would probably have been one of the top picks anyway. So it's not too much of an issue.
This is why you should never let the public vote for anything. Errr... I better be careful what I'm saying here...
seems as if they spent more than they were anticipating on the competition winner's choice! Other bands were dismissed due to budget constraints, it's a shame AWK wasnt rejected on the same grounds.
I suppose the exchange rate hasnt helped with either of the May ATPs, given that most of the bands must be paid in dollars.
and I'm not going to ATP
But all his Live videos are amazing for different reasons
This is my favourite I think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7a9jhTNrMUo
you can all piss and moan about the line up, yes its kinda crap here and there...but never ever never will i get to see
The Jesus Lizard, Sleep, Electric Wizard, Grails, Devo, Edan and the rest all on one bill, 30 mins from my front door, with a pool, 24 hour bars, nice people and i dont have to sleep in a shitty tent. im threw with moaning about the votes...at the end of the day this is utter priceless fun and you young kids should stop moaning and start your own fucking festival and lets see who would go to it. chumps.
One-off Sleep reunion in the UK? I'd £150 just for that. The fact that I get Grails, AWK, E Wizard, Harvey Milk, and Devo on top just sweetens the deal. And I can stay in the pub whilst all the whiney indie shit is on. Result.
wish people would stop moaning. Its an interesting line up: our of 41 bands, i only think !!! and Andrew WK will be rubbish, which is a good ratio by anyones standards. And the fans voted for half of them!
Wash your mouth out.
think they were boring a earls court suppport RHCP. Altough i acknowledge that prob wasn;t the best place to watch them...
they're one of, if not the best live band I've seen.
!!! where amazing the twice I saw them at glastonbury.
i heart you! i will join you at the bar.
You've changed your tune!
I don't mind so much. The line-up was incredible already (Devo! Killing Joke! Young Marble Giants! etc etc) and AWK is just the icing on the delicious, delicious music cake.
I WANT ANDREW FLIPPING WK!
and I'm really, really excited about going! That second list was just arriving at the the best bands though.
