Saw the D in Brisbane on Friday night in accoustic mode and they were mighty fine. Kyle Gassman is an incredible guitarist and Jack has a voice that extends several octaves and could replace easily most rock frontmen. He sang effortlessly and responded to the crowd singalong. Whilst the D's greatest hits were greeted most favourably by the largely gen y crowd, I really appreciated the musical mastery displayed on the killer covers
including Zeps Rock and Roll and The Beatles You Never Give Me Your Money and The End. All in all a seriously good show musically and bloody funny as well. The D play huge festivals in Europe and would not be out of place at BF 25 especially with full band and Dave Grohl on the kit. One downer was I had a nasty BF flashback with all the dickheads blocking the view with their mobiles held aloft filming. Buy a video you idiots.

Totally agree that BF can use a little humour along with great musicianship which is why I liked the Wagons so much at a couple of previous fests.

In this vein I reckon Flight of the Conchords would go down a treat as well . Funky grooves that would have pholk wetting themselves.

The D are awesome!

I dont think alot of people realise how talented they really are! KG is a master of the Guitar!! And JB vocals are incredible Rize Of The Fenix Is a Great Album!!

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

If it stops Jack Black from "acting" then bring 'em on.

I thought he was great in Bernie.

Jack is a much better musician than actor

They got the cocaine, oxycontin, mushrooms, marijuana
Vodka, plastic pop-off, twist one off
Yesterday I smoked, today I don't
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Henry Wagons solo album 'Expecting Company' was one of the albums of last year.
It featured Robert Forster, Alison Moshart from the Kills, Jenn Grant, & Sophia Brous.

He toured it this year through February and March with Patience Hodgson from the Grates singing the female parts and was amazing.
Definitely should of been on this year lineup, but fingers crossed for next year.
