Bowlie 2 is looking like an amazing weekend.
in very different ways. Tricky one bruv.
As long as you look sour-faced and srs during the bands, that’s okay. When they’re not, you can have a party.
Ain't much of that at Godspeed, bro, as far as I can tell.
To be honest, I'm not really sure what that is, besides something people think is featured in The Wire.
Godspeed lineup has fun, experimentation and awesome in equal measures. Imma go.
There's not a whole lot of po-faced stuff at Godspeed at all. Emeralds' stuff is crazily euphoric, plus we win in the fun stakes by virtue of having Weird Al...
I'd say the 'fun' stuff almost outweighs the droney-noise stuff. And even in that respect, Black Dice and Growing should get the crowd going if their last performances are anything to go by.
I don't know what 'free-noise' is but noise/drone stuff can be great live and really make you feel a lot more awake and lively afterwards, as opposed to trying not to droop off to sleep, adjusting your back posture, and generally awkwardly fidgeting around while Sons and Daughters trudge through their back-catalogue. ANOTHER SAFETY WINK
I do not trust anyone who thinks otherwise.
Beyond Dirty Projectors, who are ace and I'd like to see at the Godspeed one pleasethanks
I was thinking that but I didn't want to say it so as not to hurt the twee Belle & Sebastian fans' feelings SAFETY WINK
To be fair, Trembling Bells are great...
Although I wouldn't be too harsh towards Bowlie as what started as a reasonably dull looking line-up has thrown up a fair few decent bands.
One request- Can someone from Godspeed sort out the Neu! Michael Rother thing from In Between Days for the Godspeed ATP? Would be great even though I just bought Barbican tickets. Definitely fit in nicely next to Cluster.
do look good (especially berg sans nipple - saw them at Colchester Arts Centre once, absolutely amazing!) but probably too much for a whole weekend of noise and experiments. Fortunately bought Bowlie before Godspeed was announced and the line-up is simarly full of great bands with the addition of plenty of good-time bands....
Four or five bands I like, four or five bands I've heard OF but haven't heard, and a hell of a lot of excellent new music to discover. I loved the fact that at Camber (and at, say, Thurston Moore's ATP) you could wander into either of the stages and find someone you'd never even heard of making incredible music.
That's why Godspeed's so much better - I don't necessarily think ATP's that fun if it's wall-to-wall bands you know. The joy of ATP was always about hearing new and weird stuff that was still utterly brilliant. That's why I don't tend to worry too much about listening to many of the bands I don't know before I go.
each is pretty much the opposite of the other, which is brilliant really. i can't really see the pavillion being open for godspeed one though, who the heck could really headline or even play that (especially in turns of noise limits, like the patton atp which only had two stages) and i think b+s is missing top heavy bands... but it's all looking good, and again, hardly any bands that i have seen before in either (or, for the case of godspeed one, hardly any i have heard of, ha)
Which is a bit odd, as normally I get highly excited about even a sniff of them.
I don't love that many of the Bowlie confirmations thus far and in all honesty don't even know of many of the Godspeed ones.
Tony, can I come to Primavera with you next year instead?
of course you can come with me / us. As for the above I don't currently have tickets for either but there's only myself and one other friend interested in going so will check the inevitable deluge of offers on the Festival boards nearer the time for space.
The B&S weekender is incredibly safe & I would probably get bored at it. If I go to a winter ATP its going to be Godspeed
Best news I've had in ages. BOOM!
