Initial Electric Picnic line-up announced

Here's the first of them y'all straight off

Jape, Sex Pistols, Underworld, Hayseed Dixie, The Gossip, Cormac and BSQ Band, Sigur Rós, Adrian Crowley, Sinead O'Connor, Micah P Hinson, Grinderman, Blitzen Trapper, Lionheart Brothers, Silver Apples, George Clinton and the P-Fuck allstars, Tobias Froberg, Josh Ritter, Tindersticks, Constantine, Teitur, Cathy Davey, Midnight Juggernauts, That Petrol Emotion, Yacht, New Young Pony Club, Turin Brakes, The Breeders, Tartitt, Christy Moore, Noisettes, Kila, Faust, Goldfrapp, The Yard Dogs, Michael Spranti & Spearhead, One Day International, The Roots, Boss Volenti, The Waterboys, Foals, My Bloody Valentine, Lisa Hannigan, Wilco, CSS, Juana Molina, Tinariwen, Mark Geary, Franz Ferdinand, Dublin Gospel Choir, Absentee, Duffy, Dawn Landes, Conor Oberst (somewhere Rob is wetting his pants), Candi Staton, Large Mound, Emmy the Great is basically whats been kicking around the rumour-mill minus a few additions that would have moved it from "Quite Good" to "Damned Good". Sigur Rós and MBV together in the one place is something to look forward to but no bloody sign of Cornelius which was really blowing my skirt up seeing as I haven't seen him since Witnness 2002. Perhaps there will be more juicy stuff in the further announcements but I don't predict a quick sell-out this Friday.

They seemed to have changed the design of everything as well so I suspect this will be the last time you see the sun image above used in any Leccy Piccy stuff. In fact, I feel redundant already.

Tickets are gettable here.

I hear that there are a few others to come, including The Flaming Lips, Moby and Fat Boy Slim. Reading an interview with John Reynolds in The Irish Times, its not making me want to go any more so however, even with their "Cooking Stage" erected. least it will be better than Oxygen eh Bob?...
