Grinderman Reform For Coachella

The hotly anticipated 2013 Coachella line up has dropped this afternoon, sending all sorts of people into fits of hysteria, and while there is no Rolling Stones, The Smiths or Fleetwood Mac as some suspected, there are some curious reformations on the bill.

The Nick Cave led Grinderman are one of the main acts listed for the Friday nights (it runs over two weekends) of the festival, the band have only fairly recently split with news that their performance at the 2011 Meredith Music Festival would be their last.

Another surprise reformation is the Violent Femmes; the band split for the second time in 2009 after Tasmanian based bassist Brian Ritchie sued bandmate Gordon Gano for allowing the use of their song Blister In The Sun on a commercial for American fast food chain Wendy's.

Favourites of Australian audiences Jurassic 5 have also come back together after a half a decade or so apart, the positive alt-hip hop legends performing together for the first time since 2007. 

A few Australian acts besides Grinderman have made it onto the 2013 bill with Perth's Knife Party, the legendary Dead Can Dance, Cave's main project Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, electro hot shot Tommy Trash and the band that almost everyone loves, Tame Impala, all scoring slots on the Californian festival.

The event will be headlined by Blur, The Stone Roses, Phoenix and Red Hot Chili Peppers and you can check out the full line up at the Coachella website (if you can get on) right now.

Coachella 2013 happens in Indio, California from Friday 12 April - Sunday 14 and Friday 19 April - Sunday 21.
