These are the bands that I’m looking forward to checking out at the 2015 Coachella Music Festival. In the unlikely event anyone cares, here’s the list so far.
It’s always interesting and fun when the countdown hits the Top 19.
#11 = The Cribs
The Cribs are an English indie rock trio that formed back in 2002. The band consists of the Jarman brothers, Gary, Ryan, and Ross. Between 2008 – 2011 the group employed Smiths’ guitarist Johnny Marr. The band has released six studio albums in their career, including their latest effort For All My Sisters which dropped last week.
Recently, the Jarman brothers have stirred up this nonsense about “old school dinosaurs.” The band claims “We’re one of those bands who have seeped into public consciousness just by being around such a long time. There are still some old school dinosaurs in the UK who just have a grudge against us. They just don’t give us a chance to get bigger or actively block it…so we just have to put out another record that’s better than the last one.” If you have an idea what they’re talking about, please discuss.
The Cribs will be making their first appearance at the festival since 2007, their 2010 scheduled appearance was cancelled due to the Icelandic volcano.
