    Primavera Sound 2019

    Dirty Projectors? Are they not more of a Primavera or Pitchfork band? Confused about the idea that MIdori Takada isn't big enough for that stage. She seems to me to be totally in keeping with previous triumphant Auditori acts like Lubomyr Melnyk. Do people think the New Normal is going to reduce the audience for those acts?

    He's not in their league though. He's more of an aging Mac DeMarco and we know what a flop he was.

    Not really End of the Road material though is he?

    Can't see that. They're over in May/June time - first European gigs in 15 years. Given Bob Pollard's dislike of flying, I can't see them being here in September too.

    I thought he handled it quite well. Not making a big deal but calling the out. I suppose they are a band that say a lot quietly. In Iceland he talked about going whale watching and how they were beautiful "and I hope you'll come to see it that way too". There's a place for Patti Smith style tubtumping but there's a place for quiet challenge too. At the end in 2015 he thanked EOTR for having them and said he was surprised to be invited back after last time.

    Was that the show where Jeff stage dived?

    Primavera Sound 2019

    Just spotified her lp. It's far more interesting than the National or Arcade Fire. I'm beginning to this that the absence of Indie / Rock bands at the top of the bill isn't that bad, since I never listen to those bands anyway. Although I'm an Indie kid at heart, I'd rather watch good pop or hip-hip acts than lazy stadium indie any day. It's just finding the good pop and hip-hop in this line-up.

    I'd say Bee Thousand and Alien Lanes for GBV. Primal Scream - I think my next Favouritest is Sonic Flower Groove, but they won't play anything off that and it's not representative of the band now. Vanishing Point is the best of the post-Screamdelica lps but I think they'll draw heavily from Give Out But Don't Give Up given the recent release of the alternative Memphis version, which is probably where I'd start if I was you.

    To be honest, I expected not to be going this year, the direction of travel beginning with the Radiohead year, has been fewer and fewer interesting acts each year. However, there are enough wow factor acts this year to make it worthwhile, so I've just bought a ticket. I probably wouldn't get to see all of Stereolab, Guided By Voices, Liz Phair this year otherwise.

    Sonic Youth.

    Stereolab and Pavement would make me consider returning this year.

    Stop having rotten headliners on both main stages one night and crackers on both stages the next.

    2018 - Your Thoughts

    Someone else has posted a link to full description of the Ariel Pink set. TA were ace. Totally passionate it was mostly Titus, but Ron Icus joined him for a few numbers. Supposedly a stripped down acoustic set but he had an electric guitar. Began with a tape of some American broadcaster saying that they were the bees knees, then he does a punk rock Karoke song in the style of Father John Misty but without the irony. Played mostly to an empty field, maybe 100 at the front even the usual burks in lawn chairs who plonk themselves in the main field all day left. At the end Titus shook the hands of the 30 people that loved it.
