      Agreed. Festivals are traditionally tiring, poorly-organized, uncomfortable, and often badly equipped. It can be difficult to get around, let alone actually see the performers well, and you never get to see every band, and usually only a fraction of them. There are also usually medical emergencies, especially if it's 100 degrees outside with no shade (like one Lolla I attended, it was a total mess, surprised no lawsuits came out of that waste of time).The mega-festivals are the worst offenders. In theory, outdoor music shows can be great, and often are, under the proper circumstances and with good organization. But paying a huge amount of money to get sunstroke and dehydration and to have the right to get ripped off for $10 bottles of water is best left to the sheep out there, who are apparently suckers for any con that comes their way. They can be stupid all they want, it won't add any cachet to their lives.--- In theboredoms@yahoogroups.com, scott davis <sjofarthotellet@...> wrote:

      > Yes, there are some who seem to think Boredoms should follow a genre or something, which is pretty shortsighted. When I saw them on the Nirvana tour ages ago, they were doing WOW2-type material (which I still don't like as much as, say, Chocolate Synthesizer) and sloppy acrobatics, and did not hold onto the audience interest, but on the Lolla tour, they rocked. Trumpet-playing drummer? Brilliant.And they've changed so much since then.--- In theboredoms@ yahoogroups. com, "hortonstrip" <hortonjupiter@ ...> wrote:

One of the remixes is a bit like a horrible ethno jig, and the much touted Lindstrom mix doesn't get good until about two thirds of the way through when it goes all 70's disco vocoder-funk, but the Boriginal version is excellent, as are the Altz remixes - one of which has rocked the dancefloor both at fuckest uppest electronic / freak / kraut discos AND in Discos full of "cosmic" disco kids AND pretty straight ahead people, yet the thing still retains an essential Primal B.O.R.E in a "just keeps gettngi more and more exciting" fashion.
