JAD FAIR!!

this is number 57 in my ongoing list of suggestions and a theme is emerging: suggesting people that are older than me, I figure it'll make me seem youthful (in comparison) rather than decrepit... a dastardly ruse on my part

Also, anyone up for a "punter's sing off" - unaccompanied voices of the fans sing indiepop hits of yesteryear. This can be post platform gig ;)

I bagsy "Holland, 1945".....

On the same premise I'd have nominated Marston Street Space Invaders-era Kid Carpet, but his newer material hasn't quite worked as well for me.

I'm resigned to the likelihood that Bob Wratten's latest retirement from playing live may well be a permanent one, otherwise, yes, a Trembling Blue Stars headline slot on one night or the other would be an excellent addition.

One name not mentioned as yet is Laura Cantrell - not janglepop, I appreciate, but a firm favourite of Mr Peel and a fine live performer. Moreover, whilst she has just released an album on the interweb, I believe she's not touring it as yet as she's either about to or has just had a baby.

It doesn't seem unreasonable, though, to hope she might be back on the road next year, much less that she'd be hugely appreciated at Indietracks. If she is unavailable, other entirely serviceable country-tinged alternatives would be either Tennessee Twin (fronted by the twin sister of one of Bratmobile) or Piney Gir.

Other nominations from me at present comprise;

Lucksmiths
Misty's Big Adventure
Elliot Jack
Liane Hall
Humousexual (obviously!)

And if the rumour of the Halo Benders recording together again and playing gigs comes to fruition, then they would truly be an awesome addition!
This is a Pound Sterling suggestion, however it might be close to What The Heck again for Calvin to turn up. But who says that Calvin cannot play a complete solo set in the Johnson's Buffet bit?

What a lark that would be!
Is there love in the sound of a closing door?

Thanks for all these suggestions, which will be noted!

Next years festival will again be the last weekend in July (25/26th), and I'll talk to the railway about having a full day Friday as well.

In the meantime there'll be Christmas Twee on Dec. 6th, and I'll get back to thinking about the Indietracks Mystery Tour concept I've told some of you about, but that'll likely be about April-ish now.

Full day Friday will be awesome - and as a music fan I'll be happy to volunteer my pair of hands where they're needed!

Grrr, i'm going to miss my first indietracks event due to sodding sludgefest 2008 (aka The Melvins/Mike Patton ATP) but i think deep down i always knew i would.

Anyway, indietracks 2009 is locked in!

Can't wait.

(although a full day friday i think may be too much, i liked the chilled out, nice friday night lead in, but that just me)
and that snare drum, that drum roll
means we've got a winner

Black Heart Procession really do look out of place for that at the moment!

BHP are slo-core, but more diverse than the likes of Bedhead et-al. "The Spell" has a dark mariachi feel to it, and they also share members with the likes of Pinback, System's Officer & Three Mile Pilot.

Last saw them supporting A Silver Mount Zion and everyone that I was with who didn't know them sudden ly found a new favurite band (until ASMZ played!)

I got to see him w/Daniel Johnston a couple of nights before and, man, he doesn't disappoint! For that matter, neither did Mr. Norman Blake, so if they haven't been mentioned: Teenage Fan Club for headliners, por favor! And, heck, while I'm at it and we're talking about people older than us and they seem to have reformed: The Feelies!

Oh, yes, Craig, definitely The Ballet! Oh, that'd be just too much for me to bear. I would combust.

I'm sure they've all been called out several times--I'm being lazy!:
Okkervil River
Bunnygrunt
Shocking Pinks
Bishop Allen
The Little Ones
The Garlands

Oh, and for the 67th time, maybe so much so that you'll not want to book them out of spite, Eux Autres!
