Not as long as I wanted, but I should be have some bigger names confirmed in the next week or two weeks.

Anonymous said...

hey Monk, would you mind bolding the new names on each addition? Cheers.

Rats. Many questions left unanswered as of now.

Tom Tom Club! Animal Collective!! Duran Duran! Names I did not expect to see. This is why I spend sooooooo much time checking out your site. Great work!!!

Do you think Das Racist will make an appearance?

EmT said...

on a scale of 1-100 how sure are you about these artists coming to Coachella? What are your sources?

Anonymous said...

Monk,

Would you please tell these DP doubters to shut up please?

If it's on the list, it's on

Monklish said...

@EmT Every artist would receive a different confidence rating. Not going to to rate them all, because it angered people when I did this the first year of my blog. My sources enjoy their jobs, so I am not listing them.

CHUCHOEFINCA said...

Good update Monk. One thing.... in the list there's only one headliner right?
Also, any word on Scissor Sisters or Royksopp?

Monklish said...

@CHUCHOEFINCA Not sure about the billing, yet. I would say that the list has somewhere between 0 and 2 headliners on it depending on how things play out.

No, the Neil Young update from this blog from a few hours ago. I visited earlier and at the end of Monk's December list it said "Update" and there was an embedded Neil Young video there. Told a buddy who's a big NY fan to check it out half an hour later and it was already gone.

Monk, could you comment on this please? Any info would go a long ways

groove on her list does not = fail...why would goldenvoice NOT try to get Groove Armada to play...especially now. They could very well still be there...the only band I'm concerned about being on her list is Daft Punk...either she knows something the world doesn't..or she's committing blog suicide...but to have that up there really does ignite too much hope in too many people.

Do you really want to defend your Daft Punk post monk...I say take it down now and ease off the gamble.

We got the afternoon
You got this room for two
One thing I've left to do
Discover me
Discovering you

One mile to every inch of
Your skin like porcelain
One pair of candy lips and
Your bubblegum tongue

And if you want love
We'll make it
Swim in a deep sea
Of blankets
Take all your big plans
And break 'em
This is bound to be awhile

Your body is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I'll use my hands)
Your body is a wonderland

Something 'bout the way the hair falls in your face
I love the shape you take when crawling towards the pillowcase
You tell me where to go and
Though I might leave to find it
I'll never let your head hit the bed
Without my hand behind it

You want love?
We'll make it
Swim in a deep sea
Of blankets
Take all your big plans
And break 'em
This is bound to be awhile

Your body is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I'll use my hands)
Your body is a wonderland

Damn baby
You frustrate me
I know you're mine all mine all mine
But you look so good it hurts sometimes

Your body is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder(I'll use my hands)
Your body is a wonderland
Your body is a wonderland

GA should be on the list, and are not retiring.

From a news item on http://www.groovearmada.com/ on September 21st:

"Groove Armada have today revealed that their forthcoming tours of the UK and Australia will be their last ever shows as a full live band.

This doesn’t mark an end for the boys of course - there are big and exciting DJ performance and production plans for 2011 – but rather the start of a whole new chapter."

So of course they could be there. I trust Monk is leaving them on for a good reason, and if she's wrong, it doesn't matter!
