i was saying on the way back in the car, i don't think stuart can possibly top the lineup this year. i think we should have all the same bands again.

from the queue outside the church clearly pete green and his jug corps should headline on one of the nights

I think it's important that as Indietracks gets bigger and, inevitably, changes, they should hold on to some traditions to keep the original plucky spirit going. For that reason I definitely think there should be a policy of re-booking any artistes who've played all three so far... i definitely definitely think that would be a good idea. For the sake of The Kids, if nothing else.

pipas and sambassadeur would be pretty awesome. i'd say the cribs too, but then all of you would beat me up so i'll leave it at that.

edit: oh, and the hidden cameras. YES!

Pains would be good. I'd like to see Standard Fare play the Church. My perfect Sunday night would be Billy Childish in the shed followed by Acid House Kings main stage*

Yes to Standard Fare. Anywhere. They'll be too big for the church this time next year if there is ANY justice in the world!

just thought of another band that would be PERFECT for the Church: The Wendy Darlings. They're brilliant live, from france, and super fun.

I wouldn't be surprised if POBPAH are arranging their 2010 plans around it on the offchance. And HMHB headlining, which'd work on both a business (a few hundred on the gate) and personal (amazing) sense. A long list will occur to me given time.

ok, a longer list:

I agree with HMHB. They'd be perfect for the sunday night.

Cause Co-motion
Sarandon
Knight School
Boy Genius
Cheap Red
Jonathan Richman
The Loves
Nobunny
So Cow
Cars Can Be Blue
Hotpants Romance
Horowitz
Keith John Adams. Perfect for the Church.
The Second Hand Marching Band
Withered Hand

Loads of these probably aren't even practical. But hey, it is a WISH list.

ugh! a weekend spent with a few hundred hmhb fans, heaven forfend!

I reckon this year's festival will have convinced a lot of people that it's a festival worth going to and it's one that delivers surprises, indietracks has a personality all it's own, why run it like every other festival pulling in people who probably aren't interested in the other turns? I'm not sure a big draw headliner's needed, is it? I like that stuart's said that the festival 'can't grow too much'

damaged goods is 22 years old next year, I'd love to see them given a stage for the weekend

Fair point! I think it needs a few 'name' bands to draw in a few who can then be surprised, amazed and enthralled by it all for the first time. It's the mix of those that know what to expect and those that are there for the first time to see, say, Teenage Fanclub or the Wedding Present that help make it such a top weekend!
