Was sad to read that Animal Collective are curating ATP this May and that it will be ATP's only festival in May.

http://www.neonfiller.com/wordpress/?p=937

Don't get me wrong I like Animal Collective, its just I've seen them and many of their selection before at ATPs of the past. I like the eclectic quality of ATP but also some good old fashioned indie rock and sadly it looks like Animal Collective's is not for me this year. That's just my view.

Indietracks....hmmm, now there's a thought.

The Frogs, Dent May, Lee Perry, Meat Puppets and Broadcast looks like a pretty good line-up to me!

i was holding out for GBV curating though. GAH.

Obviously it's down to personal taste, so I take your point, but I have personally found the more interesting and exciting bands at recent ATPs to be the ones who diverged from the 'good old fashioned indie rock' template. So I'm pretty happy with the diversity of the announcements so far (also I love Animal Collective) and shall definitely be attending. You never know though, maybe future announcements will contain more of the things you want to see there.

I hope you don't mind, but I've changed the title of the thread so that people can post words of appreciation as well as criticism in here.

its pretty good but like being stuck in groundhog day for me...as seen Lee Perry many times before, Frogs at Breeders ATP and Animal Collective at the Explosions one.

I too thought GBV was a shoo-in. But then I remembered that Robert Pollard is like BA Baracas and Denis Bergkamp and hates flying.

My dream one is XTC ATP, which for a number of reasons will never happen.

I'm very excited about this ATP. I've been hoping for an AC-curated one for a while, and with Broadcast, Group Doueh and the Sublime Frequencies people added it's already looking good enough to make me want to buy a ticket.
I'm glad they're not going the 'indie rock' route (I would have been surprised if they had), as that and curators basically just inviting their mates along is what put me off a lot of ATPs. I realize Gang Gang Dance, Ariel Pink, Black Dice and probably a few others on the line up are obviously friends with AC, but I fully expect them to come up with a more varied line up that your average ATP. Also, for once there should be plenty of things to dance to!

That would be excellent. There do seem to be fairly limited criteria by which ATP choose their curators, and XTC would fail the first couple of those:

ARE YOU AMERICAN?
/ \
NO YES
/
ARE YOU NICK CAVE/DIRTY THREE
\
YES

I don't want to slag it off though; I get more excited about ATP than any other festival.

haha, i like your ATP curation criteria!

didn't know Pollard hated flying. that'll be why GBV (or even Boston Spaceships) won't come over here then. bah!

although i do enjoy good ol' fashioned indie rock, i think ATP works best when it mixes it up a bit. e.g. the Pavement one this year, though lots of fun, had a lot less acts that blew me away than previous years (not including ones i'd seen before: TNV, Mission Of Burma, etc).

i think it's a pretty decent line-up though. Frogs and Meat Puppets match up with the indie rock criteria pretty well, and there's plenty of other ace-looking stuff too, some of which i'm totally unfamiliar with, so i reckon it'd be a pretty good do.

my opinion is pretty moot though. i'll be back in college then, and don't think i'll be able to afford it anyway!

(unless by some miracle GBV do get added, which i guess they almost certainly won't, and then i'll have to find the money from selling one of my livers)

Aw, how good would that be! Make it happen, someone.

If Animal Collective could get the acts on their Rough Trade mix CD to attend, I'd be down there like a shot. Ralph Lundsten? Justin Heathcliff? Sand? Definitely! Won't happen, though. Pih.

I know what you mean, but there's lots of good stuff in there. I'm gutted to miss the GY!BE ATP in December - the best and most varied ATP line up I can recall, with some properly weird stuff in there, and some excellent and surprising inclusions.

A few years ago Andy Partridge seemed to lighten up and it looked like he might even get over his stage-fright issues and get the band back onstage, but then something went tits-up between him and Colin Moulding. You'd think after 35 years of working together they'd have a pretty solid relationship, wouldn't you?

I have a space for one in my chalet if anyone wants to come to this.
I can even give you a lift from London, Sheffield, Cardiff or Bristol (It's a long story!)

Drop me a PM if you fancy it.
