See? We told you it was long, didn't we? Nigel R from the reactivated Church of Me points out that there's nothing quite as delicious as Vanilla Ice in this year's line up, although we can't help noticing perpetually irritating real ale flavoured Waterboys spin-off World Party are in there; we're slightly happier to see that amongst the bright young things is our erstwhile next-neighbour Pete Wylie and the Mighty Wah! (his version of Pete Burns' Big Brother appearance, we expect); he'll be kept company by Ian McCulloch and the Bunnymen - that's only a Julian Cope short of a potential Crucial Three reunion right there in Texas.

And while we know Stan Ridgeway probably shouldn't be seen as on a par with Joe Dolce, we still have him firmly pegged as a one-hit novelty wonder.

Still, a cracking line-up - we hope they're doing a music dump through the filesharing netwroks this year.

If it keeps growing at this rate, they'll have every band in the world playing by 2010.

Am I the only one who remembers Stan Ridgeway for being in Wall Of Voodoo, rather than his hit "Camouflage"?
My highlight on that list is Blue Aeroplanes- I'm glad to see that they're still a going concern.

Doh, I knew I worded that email poorly -- the Church of Me was and is Marcelo Carlin's blog, not mine (which was Amblongus). Now I look like a chump.

My fault, Nigel - I was getting my blogs muddled in my mind...

Damian said...

The Blue Aeroplanes are very much a going concern - if very slowly most of the time. Their breakthrough album "Swagger" is re-released today, and there should be a new album on its way in a few months. They're also playing at the Borderline in January.
Cue spontaneous rock 'n' roll concert!

Did you see Swagger get 5/5 in the SUN on Friday! What the feck was all that about, I thought I had undergone a Life on Mars transformation.

Hang on, don't nick that, I am putting it up on my blog :-)

“ Lindsay Jane is that rare artist that comes along from god knows where and blows away everybody she encounters. She is a writer of great depth with the ability to get right at the heart of things with an insightful mind that examines truth and presents it in a simple and most poignant manner. Lindsay Jane's songs move people, there is no way anybody can be indifferent. This isn't background music; her songs hit the target dead on the money.”

I heard Lindsay's music on her website. When I get to Austin from th UK, I'll be in on Tuesday morning. I'm going to see Lindsay at her showcase on Wednesday night. This is the first time I've heard of her. Judging by her lyrics, she's going to have a song or two in TV and Movies. There's one tune "Gasoline" that's definately unique. If you hear a Brit crying on Wednesday night, that's me!

Cheers!
