Okay folks here's the latest for you. Many of you will be very pleased to know that the mighty KILLING JOKE have confirmed to play your side of the bill!
Their reunion shows last year were tremendous and we're very excited to have them. This is the original lineup; the same that recently released the excellent 'The Peel Sessions: 1979-1981' and were highlighted as a featured artists on the new EMI Sessions website (EMISessions.com).
Two more confirmations from your side of the line-up come in the shape of:
THE MAE SHI
SCHOOL OF SEVEN BELLS
Unfortunately of course we have to tell you that some of the bands approached recently won't be playing. Wolf Parade won't be; they'll be back in the UK in 2010. Sadly Neurosis wanted to play but there are scheduling difficulties so they'll be unable to. M. Ward also has scheduling problems. Pavement won't be playing as they're not a band right now, and Neutral Milk Hotel also won't be performing.
However we still have offers out to Jesu, Harvey Milk, Wolves In The Throne Room, Casiotone For The Painfully Alone, Lords and Eels at various stages of development. More news on those when we have it.
Some more news for today is the addition of the following to the ATP side of the lineup:
THIS WILL DESTROY YOU
We're also very happy to tell you that PETE FOWLER, who many of you will know from his work for Super Furry Animals will present an art exhibition at the event and will also design the latest Clownshoes DOLBEE toy for this ATP.
