    So Oxegen is only 20 days away ,what are ppls recommendations for the must see bands.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,592 ✭✭✭Ro: maaan!

    Hmm... Good thread. Cant say I know many of the smaller bands playing this year. Of the mainer bands I'd reccommend Feeder (always good live), Flogging Molly (They wouldn't be my favourite, but they'll surely be fun to be at), Interpol, New Order, Green Day, yada yada...

    I would hope to check out

    new band stage
    The Magic Numbers [sun]: they sounded good on jools
    Tom Vek [sun]: Heard good things about this guy

    Green Room
    Biffy Clyro [sat] : havnt heard any of their stuff but interested to see what they are like
    Interpol [sat] : few good songs, might be good live
    Rodrigo y Gabriela [sat] : should be brilliant live

    The Ticket Stage
    The Prodigy [sat] : Legend
    Kasabian[sat] : some good tunes - worth a look
    Bloc Party [sat]: heard good stuff about these guys, might be crap live though
    Doves [sun] : last broadcast is a great album - they should be good

    Razorlight[sat] : great album
    Kaiser Chiefs[sat]: not a super fan but they should be wicked live, loads of moshing
    Queens Of The Stone Age[sat] : must see
    The Killers[sun] : some nice poppy tunes
    Foo Fighters[sun] : classic stuff here

    knowing my luck half of these will be on at the same time in different stages :(

    Yeah I'd back up the flogging molly recommendation. I'd say they could be this year's electric6. Also Mundy, alway's liked him live. A lot of people I know are recommending Audioslave, I've never heard em really.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,800 ✭✭✭voxpop

    just been listening to a bit of flogging molly on their site....they will be great live - loads of hopping around and drunkin irish dancing :) Wouldnt buy the album though

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,008 ✭✭✭rabbitinlights

    Maximo Park.
    Bright Eyes.
    Death from above 1979.
    Tom Vek.

    And the obvious ones:

    Bloc Party.
    Kaiser chiefs.
    The bravery.
    The Killers.

    Oh, and I will be the happiest man in the world when I hear "Blue Monday" live by New Order, and Payback by James Brown.......

    THE greatest band in the world, revolving door policy is their only negative, you never see the same band twice... I haven't anyway!

    Also see Rodrigo y Gabriela (amazing guitarists), Mundy, The Frames (brilliant entertainers and a right auld irish laugh), The Killers, The Prodigy, Snoop Dogg, Foo Fighters, Ian Brown, Feeder and Audioslave. That's my weekend mapped out, I just hope none of them clash!

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,213 ✭✭✭✭therecklessone

    Go and see The Go! Team, The Bravery, Death From Above 1979, and yourcodenameis:milo.

  • Registered Users Posts: 746 ✭✭✭skregs

    Interpol and New Order. to hell with the rest of them.

    I suppose Queens of the Stone Age too but they just havent been that great since Nick left

    You have to see Audioslave if you like metal - they're doing RATM covers at the moment - so they're UNMISSABLE

    Also, the Saw Doctors are fantastic craic, they're well worth seeing, particularly if you're half-cut already.

    Saw New Order last week - they were absolutely crap - completely failed to connect with the crowd and came across as a shower of arrogant ****. Left after 10 mins to see Queens of the Stone Age who really were rather good.

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,450 ✭✭✭dimerocks

    Did they play "blue Monday", and was it at the start of the set or the end?

    I dont really want to watch the whole set........
