Born to boot.

One Louder reports on the ATP Festival's "Don't Look Back" series, coming this fall. Various bands have been invited to perform a classic album live, in it's entirety:

8.30 The Stooges - Fun House - Carling Apollo Hammersmith
8.31 Dinosuar Jr. - You're Living... - Koko
9.15 The Lemonheads - It's A Shame About Ray - Shepherd's Bush Empire
9.16 Mudhoney - Superfuzz Bigmuff Plus Early Singles - Koko
9.17 Múm/Cat Power - Yesterday Was Dramatic.../The Covers Album - Barbican Hall
9.21 Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Orange - Koko
9.24 Gang of Four - Entertainment! - Barbican Hall
9.25 Belle & Sebastian - If You're Feeling Sinister - Barbican Hall
10.04 Melvins - Houdini - Koko
10.05 Dirty Three/Sophia - Ocean Songs/The Infinite Circle - Barbican Hall

That's some odd line-up. If you mapped out the highs and lows graphically it'd look like an EKG of a cardiac arrest.

Makes you wonder why they picked that particular B & S album. And how the band feels about it. I mean, that's a great one, don't get me wrong -- but I'd much prefer to hear FOLD YOUR HANDS, CHILD or THE BOY WITH THE ARAB STRAP, arguably better products. Wonder if B & S would agree. Ah, well, a paycheck's a paycheck.
