DROP OUT OF LIFE WITH BONG IN HAND......
ATP

BrooklynVegan: A lot of your US fans are wondering why [Sleep] aren't doing a US tour or even a show in San Francisco and NYC. Whats the reasoning? Is that mostly due to Chris?

Sleep's Matt Pike: I think the dude just wants to retire.... He lives up in the hills and he's got a lot going on... I don't think the rock lifestyle is really for him. Chris is really a "to himself" kind of guy... he's an awesome guy and an awesome drummer. But yeah, I don't think that's the lifestyle he wants... and me and Al... both of us are obviously lifers. But he still wanted to [reunited Sleep for shows in Europe] genuinely to wrap up what we started so long ago... and for our fans. I mean we played Jerusalem as Dopesmoker for a long time on tour, but people didn't even get into it until we broke up.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Kutscher's is going to need a fumigator and a team with some SERIOUS HVAC experience. Sleep has announced that they will perform all of Holy Mountain at ATP New York 2010, right beside Iggy & the Stooges performing Raw Power, Mudhoney doing Superfuzz Bigmuff + Early Singles and The Scientists (their first ever US show) who will preform all of Blood Red River!!!
To continue our year-long celebrations of Ten Years of ATP we are thrilled to announce that All Tomorrow's Parties will return to Kutsher's Country Club, Monticello for it's third ATP New York festival over Labor Day weekend, running from Friday 3rd September - Sunday 5th September. Weekend and Day Tickets are available, with a Layaway Ticket option available. [ATP]
The "Iggy & The Stooges" lineup (as opposed to The Stooges) means the addition of James Williamson back into the fold, who Iggy collaborated with on Raw Power, Kill City, and New Values. The Raw Power announcement isn't much of a surprise, as Iggy let it slip last month.

Al Cisneros of Sleep/Om recently played NYC as part of Shrinebuilder along with Rwake and Liturgy. Pics from that show are here. Matt Pike of Sleep also played NYC recently, as part of High On Fire. Dig on pics from that show here and here.

Another flyer, more info on this year's fest, and some videos from the Sleep reunion in the UK are below...

I hope all those sissies who were slinging shit in the Jesus Lizard thread stay the fuck away.

I hope this festival is loud as fuck like it was the first year, had a lot of fun in 09 but the ear bleeding in 08 was better....so far no complaints with Iggy, Mudhoney, and Sleep

juuust right

the stooges are one of my favorite bands, but i'm not sure if i can shell out all of that cash just to catch them... may have to wait until/if they tour themselves. i find mudhoney to be slightly annoying, and i have no idea who sleep are...

Iggy Pop has turned into a cartoon character, especially when considering the recent (and potent) resurfacing of Jesus Lizard.

Posted by Anonymous | November 20, 2009 2:09 PM

Sleep doing 'Holy Mountain'! YES!!!

Posted by brian roach | November 20, 2009 2:18 PM

Not sure how Jesus Lizard has anything to do with Iggy's cartoon character status...

@ too heavy :(


I'm sure that you can head over to the comedy stage...maybe Paul Reubens or Louie Anderson will be performing.

I love ATP NY and will be there again this year. Totally fun and great experience

Posted by Anonymous | November 20, 2009 2:44 PM

i hate fun. if this is going to be fun, i don't want to go.

If Louie Anderson's set conflicts with Mudhoney, I am going to be as steamed as a clam!

Dude, it is not an if. Of course they are going to play a show after ATP in the city somewhere. They just cannot announce it for a while.

@2:03, the festival is never about just one band.

Posted by Anonymous | November 20, 2009 4:47 PM

I'm not against heavy by any means, but these four bands all in a row just seems like it would be exhausting.

Just heard that Gallagher is curating the comedy! FTW!!! I'm taking some acid for sure...

Who cares about watching some gigantic piece of leather and a bunch of dinosaurs plowing through boring garage rock? I laugh at all the people pretending they heard of The Scientists and Sleep before today.

got my ticket/room. so pumped!

Posted by Anonymous | November 20, 2009 8:50 PM

sleep did holy mountain in the uk! why can't we get dopesmoker?!?

Posted by Anonymous | November 20, 2009 9:21 PM

@8:39, do you really not own any records from The Scientists?

Next you'll try to tell me that feedtime isn't a real band.

Posted by Anonymous | November 20, 2009 9:46 PM

Are you really so insecure about never having heard of Sleep or the Scientists that you have to accuse people who have of lying?

Posted by Anonymous | November 21, 2009 4:16 PM

The drummer for Neurosis will be playing with Sleep. Chris Hakius will not be appearing. A bit of a bummer, but I will still most likely attend.

Posted by Anonymous | November 22, 2009 4:51 PM

This will be awesome! Sleep is such an amazing band and its great to see they reunited and are playing tour dates. If anyone knows of the tour dates that sleep will be performing please post them!
