    Declan O Rourke, Audio Bullys and Bob Mould have all been added to Sunday's bill. I wouldn't mind seeing Bob Mould just to hear a few songs off Copper Blue but the other two are desperate.

    saw Audio Bullys before in the Red Box - really entertaining. Still in two minds about their remix of 'Bang Bang' though, it was a great song before they got their hands on it. Maybe too good to ruin though. "hopefully there will be someone funny in the comedy tent when o'rourke is on." - excellent!

    I think my problem with their version is that it's just really uninventive. Anybody could've made a mix like that, yknow? Ah well, I wonder who else is going to play EP. They're going to have to plump up the line-up substantially if they want to get the punters in. I can't imagine how much they're spending on it already.

    Probably not, there will already be someone to laugh at on his stage.

    The Magic Numbers are the only good band there. And they're already playing Bud Rising, so, like, WHATEVER. Not really gone on Maximo Park - dude's voice takes getting used to. The Subways are brutal live, although 'Oh Yeah' is a great tune.

    Just letting people know. I'll miss The Magic Numbers in June so hopefully catch them at Oxegen and will judge The Subways when they support Weezer in Vicar Street.

    Editors are a class band. Munich and Bullets are both brilliant singles. And Apply Some Preassure by Maximo Park is a quality tune, as is Love Vibration by Josh Rouse. You're right about that Nancy Sinatra remix though. It's f*cking muck! There was actually a great bootie of Bang Bang floating around last year with the beats from Fix Up Look sharp underneath it.

    oh didn't notice the Editors on that post (was edited I think - the irony. That's not irony). Yeah Munich is a good song, a lot of peeps say it's an Interpol rip off, but I say NAY. Love the guys voice, bit Ian Curtis-esque. They're supporting The Departure during the Bud Rising bonanza. Think the gig is at Whelan's. Yeah, that Bang Bang mix was on the Hanzo Steel Record, you know that one that basically looks like the cover of Kill Bill? Good record, if a bit gimmicky.

    I cant understand what problem ye can have with the line up for oxegen. Having gone to everyone of these since the first witnness, I think this years line up is probably one of the strongest yet ...

    don't you understand Kloot? Everyone who likes rock music will complain about the lack of invention of the line-up, yet still go and enjoy it beacause they like the bands. duh.

    I remember not being overly impressed with last year's line-up before I went but had a great weekend. And the majority of the better acts I saw were in the New Band Stage, and that stage hasn't really been announced yet (despite Super Furry Animals and The Tears headlining it). There will always be about ten or so acts worth seeing at any festival.
