please FSOL, go back to your Lifeforms/Dead Cities/ISDN incarnation.

Autechre, please make something I'll actually want to listen to repeatedly (instead of a one-off head-fuck experience).

I think the others can do no wrong :)

Any news on the Cocteau front hinting at a comeback or a full-scale tour?

I wish the same for FSOL, especially in the Lifeforms vein.

.. agreed w/ Autechre as well, they've been far too focused on unlistenable noise lately.

I haven't heard anything about Cocteau Twins touring further. I'm not sure if I would see them live, I've heard some pretty mixed things about their performances. Perhaps I would go just because they're the Cocteau Twins, though.

Ah, key words on the DCD website: "worldwide tour". I was so afraid that they'd only tour the UK. I will be seeing them...

It'd be wonderful if the Cocteau Twins decided to do a new album, too.

I'm very, very curious about how this new Kate Bush album will turn out. I don't think she'll ever top The Dreaming or Hounds of Love, but anything new could be fun. I'm refraining from getting too excited, though... I got myself so hyped up for that last Skinny Puppy album after waiting for years, and it was such a turd.

In any case, this year does look to be shaping up to be something interesting, at the very least.

DCD are playing in London in a few months, tickets sold out immediately so they've added another London date. Not sure if they're sold out too, but I will certainly try. My mother saw them live before they broke up last time and said it was incredible.

I'm much more excited about the prospect of a new Cocteau Twins album than a tour.

I think most of the artists mentioned above have most likely already reached their peak, but I'm still happy to hear any new material from them. Kate Bush is a goddess to me and as long as her voice hasn't suffered from age I think whatever she produces will be enjoyable.

Yes, the last Skinny Puppy abum left me pretty cold.

I'm envious! I'm crossing my fingers and hoping I can get tickets for their upcoming London show. Out of all the artists touring I'm confident that DCD would give one of the best live performances.

Awesome!
FSOL? Excellent!! I have all of their albums. I loved "The Isness" (even though it wasn't popular) and also own "The Otherness". You could call me a casual fan. *heh*

Boards of Canada too? Wow. Looks like a great year coming up!

Re: Awesome!
My favorite FSOL album is Lifeforms, it is such a wonderful meshing of organic and electronic sounds. I've listened to it so much over the years that it's pretty much embedded itself into my memories.

I really wonder where they'll go with their new album. I felt slightly let down by The Orb's latest, I hope FSOL is different.

OMG OMG Kate Bush! I just heard about this on the radio half an hour ago. Kids who weren't born when The Red Shoes came out are practically old enough to drive!

But you must add The Wedding Present with a new album due Valentine's Day. Cinerama was fine, but this is Gedge's real band.

I hadn't heard about The Wedding Present, added!

My Bloody Valentine? I had no idea they were together again. Excellent news. The MBV track in the soundtrack to Lost in Translation - well, that pretty much made the movie for me, possibly the most perfect use of music in a film I have ever seen/heard.

And Kate Bush: I've been listening to Wuthering Heights by "Jah Wurzel" (actually Morgan Fisher, ex-Mott the Hoople keyboard player, from his Hybrid Kids album), it's possibly the most bizarre cover version of any song ever. Imagine a reggae version of Wuthering Heights, sung by a Zumerzet farmer. Kewl.

The reports about MBV came out sometime last year, but I wasn't sure if it was just a rumour. It appears it's not, I can't wait to hear their new material. I loved the use of the MBV song in LiT too, I can watch it repeatedly (with sound cranked).

That Wuthering Heights cover really does sound bizarre. Do you have a copy of it available on slsk? I'd love to hear it if possible.

Wow's classic 80's artists unite.
Kate Bush and New Order. Yum!

Hope indi-electronic heros Múm produce something a lil more speccy than the last. Awesome live, though, so maybe a tour to promote? Take note morrmusic!

Portishead and MBV big shocks for me. Too long between drinks for both of them, maybe they will fizzle, but certainly surprise.

BOC and ae, i feel sorry for them, already so brilliant, where do they go now... I'm saving my pennies to find out.

Out of all the artists listed above I'm most curious about how Kate Bush sounds these days, there's been hardly a peep from her for so incredibly long.

I'm pretty confident Portishead and MBV are going to come out with some awesome material. I await in anticipation.
