Retro band slots 17 January 2012 21:06 (permalink)
Just seen that Dodgy have reformed with the original line up  - I guess they'd be ideal as a Latitude retro act
 
But who else to fill the Adam Ant/OMD/James/Squeeze etc slots
 
I see a lot of people are guessing Big Country will play - who else?
 
BAD, PWEI, The Wonderstuff?
 
Any thoughts

    no offence to you all but all those bands are ****ING ****
     
    these would be good, if we're gonna do that whole thing:
     
    - BLACK TAMBOURINE
    - Chris + Cosey
    - Dead Can Dance [actually are this band good? i've never listened to them]
    - R Stevie Moore!
    - Jeff Mangum
    - Godspeed You! Black Emperor
    - Jonathan Richman 
    - The Pop Group

        Never heard of Black Tambourine
         
        Jonathan Richman would be great, but most of those you mention don't actually fit in with the general retro slots, you're just going for obscure (other than Richman, and to a far lesser extent DCD)

          R Stevie Moore would be absolutely great.
           
          again, Todd Rundgren
           
          and Colin Blunstone

            No offence to you, but all of the bands I mentioned are absolutely massive within the Latitude language + far more suited to the festival than Big Country or Pop Will Eat Itself

                Big Country are quite Latitude friendly, surely. Not that I like them.
                 
                PWEI are (i.e. were) of course incredible but I'm not sure that their current lineup would be up to much.
                 
                I would like Melv to book Fleetwood Mac performing Tusk in its entirety.

                  hmm, looks like I was getting Big Country confused with something else.

                    R Stevie Moore is definitely not "Latitude Language"
                     
                    neither is Black Tambourine.
                     
                    the forum is a very small percentage of latitude attendees, and only a percentage of the forum like that music. me included (well, i don't know Black Tambourine).

                        I have a feeling we might be seeing the never-that-much-cop-live New Order headlining this year.
                         
                        Aside from them:
                         
                        Thomas Dolby
                        ABC
                        Wire

                              Well, with The Cure headlining and Kate Bush doing the sunday lunch slot I'm not sure we need too many other retro slots.  ;-)
                               
                              talk talk, Propaganda and Cocteau Twins would be good, though might be slightly tricky to arrange!
                              I am short, young and wildly inaccurate.

                                Isn't Claudia from Propaganda married to one of OMD? (unless I dreamt that or something).  Hubby maybe gave her glowing reports from last year...

                                    How about MIKE and the MECHANICS think they would go down well at latitude.

                                      probably the only person on here hoping for another Bow Wow Wow reformation like this one
                                       
                                       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fekqp-gMUq0
                                       
                                      still, reckon Dexy's Midnight Runners will be a safe bet...

                                        Would love to make time for a bit of Bow Wow Wow & several of the others for another look - just, please, not the Enid. Never got on with their miserable music or their pretentious followers.
                                        No offence, actually, no go on, I REALLY didn't like the Enid ':-)
