Who do you NOT want to see?

Who do you NOT want to see?
February 05, 2006 11:42AM
I know this is going to piss people off, but I'm more curious about who you DON'T wat to see this year. My list is as follows:
1- Franti, please no Spearhead, no trio, no Franti
2- Maxi Priest- its sad when people leave during the headliner
3- Steel Pulse- same tired show since 2003- mix it up huh?
4- Shaggy- no explanation necessary
5- Sean Paul- great in studio- horrible live
6- John Browns Body- without a doubt, the worst live performance I've ever seen in any genre of music
7- Luciano- for no reason other than the fact that I've seen him too many times and haven't been impressed since 2002
8- Bambu Station- too many shows on the west coast over the last two years, 6-8 shows in tahoe alone, not to mention how many fests
9- Midnite- just puts me to sleep or at least into a trance
10- Elephant Man- too much dancing, too much hype, not enough music

Hopefully I didn't just piss everyone off, but I know I pushed some buttons

I dont ever need to hear or see beanie man, elephant man, sean paul, shaggy, or Michael Franti at any reggae show or festival for the rest of my life. This is not reggae its stray-ggae and we dont need them when there is real roots and real dancehall. Big up Sizzla, luche, Capelton, anthony b, and above all, JAH. Let praise be his name. Blessings

Beenie Man a Boss, whether you like him or not.
Re: Who do you NOT want to see?
February 05, 2006 03:41PM
Funny to hear the mention of Sizzla. Seems like he fell off the map at festivals since joining Damon Dash's hip hop group and moving to NY. So much for the big break unless it is yet to come.

Re: Who do you NOT want to see?

It's been some years since Santa & Tony were hired on for the purpose of giving BM some reggae legitimacy. They were playing with the Toyes (no pun intended) too, but I won't hold that against 'em either. I'm sure Sly & Robbie have been hired for many projects they weren't all that proud of.
What rhythmsize said. We did a show in AZ with Reel Big Fish where the singer and their fans in the audience greeted each other with these words of love and respect for their collective spirit: "YOU SUCK @$$HOLE!!"

give thx for the shout @ Tahoearmada....will be forwarding the relevant press kit info and sounds along the chain of reggae command shortly.

Personally, as long as i dont have to see a shirtless Shaggy gyrating hips and thrusting his pelvis.... anything else will do fine.

The wknd up there in mendo is looking like an I-ditational retreat the more and more i visit photos of the place.

excellent!
Re: Who do you NOT want to see?
February 06, 2006 10:52AM
Maxi Priest
Rocker T
I vibes unless Apple comes back
Barrington Levy
Franti
Toots
Mr. Vegas, or Mr. Lex
Eek A Mouse

Any trance hippy crap with Sitars etc.
In my opinion, I'd say any world music, and yes I know it is a world music festival, but who really comes for world music?
Re: Who do you NOT want to see?

lol, so none of this girl?


Re: Who do you NOT want to see?
February 06, 2006 12:32PM
No world music? So it isn't so. Surely you can think of some...
Johnny Clegg? Apache Indian? Unfortunately just like everywhere, for every group you like, you probably went through 10 you didn't. SNWMF is a rare opportunity to see acts you otherwise wouldn't see. Viva la diversity!
Re: Who do you NOT want to see?
February 06, 2006 06:04PM
Wow, JohnnY Clegg- thats one I haven't heard in awhile- great singer and band leader- sad that savuka passed away, their early stuff was amazing. They played ROTR in like '99 I think- wish I had made that one.
Big up revolutionaries like Johhny Clegg- not too many white men fighting for freedom in South Africa- especially 15-20 years ago.

Amen to that...those guys riding around on ATVs last year were not cool. Let's hope the Mendo cops (if they are even there) are better....
Re: Who do you NOT want to see?
February 06, 2006 11:16PM
No more Franti, yellowman, lee perry, steel pulse, maxi, frankie paul, eek, the tired "BIG name acts" that just don't try so hard any more...but hey,World music.... remember Baaba Maal at Marysville (awesome!), i love the energy and new music styles out of Africa...and there's little chance for that xover exposure. I come for the world music..but my first love is reggae...roots and dancehall. and reggae is world!

Just wondering..builder...whats wrong with hippies?? and what is a Fake Rasta?? lol!! I think its funny how people feel the need to pass judgements..

the fest is what it is, and everyone here will be there this year. Get over it, no doubt there is bound to be a group or 5 that you don't like. THe vibes are always nice, see a lot of the same people year after year (this will be 7 straight for me).

just stay Irie and enjoy, but since we're on the topic, PLEASE keep the Bacon and Franti outta there. (unless he plans to sing "hole in the bucket" his whole set) just my $.02

I don't know, I'm not very excited about most line ups these days. While I love the new stuff, I still long to hear some very rich authentic old music, with a new twist. Linval Thompson, Yabby You, Jah Stitch, I'd love to see artists like this at SNWMF!.
Re: Who do you NOT want to see?
February 19, 2006 09:41AM
Toots- Enough, but it would be his every other year appearance.
Pulse- Last years set said enough. Stale
Barrington- Is he still doing the 50 cent thing?
Burning Spear- Guy has put me to sleep many a show. Any act with spear in the name.
Groundation- Get enough of their spam on this board. Cruelty to elephants.
Reggae Angels- Back up or lead. Fenton should be banned from local shows, keep him outside handing out flyers. Ras James is being groomed to lead this sound into the future. Big tings a commin.
Ozo- They are not world music. Unless east la is your world.
The Manson Tea House- AAA puts it best.
Natty Wailer- This may turn interesting if he could be booked, Dancehall?
Sol Horizon-Tricked me once with yammi but that will not happen again..

>The Manson Tea House

that is so funny and its exactly what that place reminds me of. beware little girls, its all fun and games now but next you will be squatting in death valley. i already detect a bit of manson cultishness among some "rasta" gals i see around, they seem to just be looking for a charlie to lead them.

no offense in particular to the casbah, its just how it strikes me too...

but i have to differ with you on the spear aspect. he always brings a good performance no matter how often i have seen him. and you cant say last time was boring what with the surprise appearance of jr tosh.

one love
