I think this thread exists so we can daydream a favourite band appears on next year's bill all because we posted they should here
Print it off, and send them the roll call of honour ;)

I think it's a fairly redundant thread,* but i look forward to your collating of the list in a month or so, and Stuart asking the top 15 or something.. It's what makes the year ahead easier to cope with.

I presume there WILL be an Indietracks next year, are we all taking it for granted that Stuart wants to keep at it, it can't be easy, esp. with the behemoth it's become, and i guess the railway have to give the go ahead, although quite they wouldn't is beyond me.. Basically, i'm not letting myself get excited yet just yet.


*yet one i'll be posting sporadically in and reading with interest for the next year.
and that snare drum, that drum roll
means we've got a winner

Good call.

And how about the Buzzcocks too? The cover of 'Ever Fallen In Love' by Cooper on Sunday had me dancing like a loon in the rain*.

I concur on Betty and the Werewolves - a fabulous live band - and The Give It Ups too, who seem to me to personify very much of what is wonderful about indiepop.

Standard Fare seem a very obvious stand-out pick for next year - it's a shame they sort of appeared maybe a bit late for the 2009 event.

I'd love to see The Just Joans back - they're a captivating live band, I'm a huge fan and I bloody missed them last year!

Jam on Bread would be great in the church, as would Withered Hand.

The Hi-Life Companion deserve a spot too - brilliant, classic indiepop songwriting and a band somewhat unjustly neglected by the indiepop community thus far.

For a glamorous import with a touch of intrigue I'd go for South Ambulance, one of the best Swedish indiepop bands of the last few years and, again, one that seems underrated or unfairly overlooked. Sambassadeur would be lovely on the outdoor stage as the sun's going down too.

Finally, the guideline that bands shouldn't play two years running should prove no barrier to a 2010 appearance by The Pete Green Corporate Juggernaut, who have no connection with this year's star turn Pete Green and The Corporate Juggernaut.

Great call on Edwyn Collins

Also;
Hello Saferide
Darren Hayman
Pelle Carlberg
Brakes
Hafdis Huld

and a Labrador stage with Sambassadeur / LoveNinjas / Acid House Kings

I like how the outdoor stage moving back meant there was more room and so it never felt more crowded despite their being more people but im not sure how you make it even bigger.
Big headliners are nice but i wonder how many out there either understand the festival (Camera Obscura / Art Brut / Los Campesinos) last year or link back to the history of indiepop (Wedding Present / TFC) wouldn't want a bigger band there just filling a contractual obligation. Its nice when you see Gareth Campesinos or Eddie Art Brut wandering around enjoying other bands.

At the smaller end of the scale I'd like The Transmittens, Allo Darlin', The Seven Inches, Bishop Allen (or have they split up now?), The Legends, The Crayon Fields, Electric Pop Group, Bishop Allen and Math and Physics Club.

Oh, and there was talk of Prolapse getting back together a while ago, apparently. If anyone could persuade them for next year, that'd be amazing.

It seems almost inconceivable that Jeffrey Lewis HASN'T played yet - he's played pretty much everywhere else hasn't he? Also Superman Revenge Squad would be GRATE, and The Phil Wilson International SuperGroup feat. Pretty Much All Of The June Brides would be MENTALLY good. I have a feeling they'd be up for it...

As for having Bigger Headliners - i think it's brilliant to draw in new people that way who then stumble off and discover new things, and the HMHB crowd, while they DO contain their fair share of Grumpy Middle Aged Men (imagine!) do also have a large contingent of very broad minded music fans who will have NO traditional prejudices about other bands. Every time we play with them my online shop goes PING for several days afterwards!

Tullycraft
Professor Pez
The Lucksmiths (I do not care that they're splitting up; make them come together again)
Jens Lekman
Ladybug Transistor (as I am in love with Gary Olson now)
Pants Yell!
Blind Terry
Saturday Looks Good To Me

And of course Pocketbooks. Pipas would be good, too.

Ah yes, and the Pines! Failing that, the First Division would do, too. Or even that Pinefox geezer.

How could I forget Rose Melberg?

Yes, Tullycraft! And Professor Pez!

(The former might be a bit hard, seeing as they're on a hiatus, but we should at least have asked. And then have asked some more. Professor Pez are, I have been told, an awesome live band.)

The Cannanes would be great too.

The Pines would be great in the church. So would Rose Melberg. And Pipas.

Freezepop to add an electronic twist to the festival. And Persil.

And some new bands with young people I haven't heard of before that'll blow me away. I think it'd be great to have one stage dedicated to bands that are really new, even to us indiepop-connaisseurs.

The Coffee Van thing... I didn't even note their name, I was too busy checking out the menu and blowing raindrops off my nose

They did things with whipped cream and marshmallow pieces that may well be illegal

Please come back

Of Montreal to headline on the outdoor stage? Their thing with the costumes would look amazing on it.

Other than that- Spencer McGarry Season, Sweet Baboo, The Voluntary Butler Scheme...so just people I'm friends with so I can make an arse of myself playing tambourine again please.

That coffee van had something called 'pussy energy drink'. I didn't dare try it.

I'd like to request more sunshine next year, please.

My friend did and she was buzzing like a fridge. It had enough caffeine and other stimulants in it to revive the dead.
