Phoenix?

Recommended Posts

What do we think about the possibility of Phoenix returning this year? Headlined the John Peel stage in 2013. Have prepped website and social network pages to the television test pattern, typically implying a channel or transmitter is active but is not yet broadcasting anything. Have announced their first festival date for next summer with Bilbao BBK Live.

Anyone else see them getting an early-ish Pyramid slot?

They've got the tunes for it, although I would worry about whether Thomas's voice would carry well enough, he's not the strongest of singers

Best set I've seen in 2013. It was too short. But absolutely incredible.

They were so so good. I was pretty far back, but was a great spectacle. Love it when the singer gets involved with the crowd!

P-h-e-o-n-i-x, regardless of what the Oxford English Dictionary tells you.

 

Thou shalt not express your shock at the fact that Sharon got off with Brad at a club last night by saying "Izzit".

I would say subbing other stage or Headlining West Holts

No chance they're big enough to headline WH

that would have nothing to do with it.

What would be the additional reasoning? Save for the bookers of that field not fancying them anyway 

Do they fit with any of the other acts which have played that stage? I'd say very definitely not, unless their output has changed radically in the last decade (cos i can't be sure I've heard anything in that time).... and it's no coincidence that they've played JP previously.

Could arguably put them alongside someone like Hot Chip?

If you go by last years lineup I suppose they still fit the JP stage the most. Bankrupt didn't have as big an impact as Wolfgang did but was still a great album. I sort of saw them playing a bigger stage almost out of long term respect.. If you will.
