Live Ate

Holy shit - 2 MMM updates on the same day. About as rare as an unassisted triple play!

Not sure if I am going to want to
see this this weekend.
Mad Richard is going to be on stage with Coldplay singing "Bitter Sweet Symphony" - I don't hate Coldplay as much as Peephole, nor do I like them a whole lot, but this is going to turn that song into the shmaltziest thing ever. I'd much rather see Chris Martin attempt to play Primal Scream's "Movin' On Up" with
Bobby G - I can only imagine the invective that Bobby would direct at Coldplay if given the chance . Quickly on that flare up by Bobby G at Glastonbury - so not surprising. The guy is nuts - N.V.T.S. - and for any of you that came to see Bobby not make an ass of himself? "Fuck yous!"

Bob Geldof is a fool for not signing up any of the following:

the versatile Erol Alkan, who could have either bugged out the crowd, or bugged them in. For the London shoegazers out there, Erol is
playing a "shoegazer set" at the Sonic Cathedral (a weekly party that plays everything from My Bloody Valentine to Ulrich Schnauss - not that diverse, but quality!) on July 7. Autolux, who is opening for part of the NIN/QOTSA tour, wil be playing that night too.

the G.O.A.T., Underworld, and given them the chance to test out their new line up. Apparently the rumors that Darren Price, longtime pal and warm-up DJ for Rick and Karl is now going to be the third live member
are true. Not sure if he was involved in the writing of the new album.

why richard, why? do you think years of excessive drug use have eroded his ability to distinguish right/wrong?
