Jimmy Kimmel Tricks Coachella-Goers Into Gushing Over Fake Bands [Video]


Jimmy Kimmel Two Door Cinema Club

Ok, so there's plenty of serious music fans at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, though there's also those who have no idea who they're watching, where they are, or why they're there. You've seen them wandering around - they chose their festival outfit about 6 months ago. Anyway, Jimmy Kimmel skewered plenty of fake music fans at this year's festival by getting them to gush about bands that, err, don't actually exist. "Music fans in general love knowing about bands that no one else has ever heard of," Jimmy Kimmel said as he introduced a Coachella edition of his 'Lie Witness News.'

Sending his cameras into the maelstrom, Kimmel caught one guy saying of the completely fictitious Obesity Epidemic, "I just like their whole style. Their whole genre is great. They are very innovative, and they're new." Other fake bands included Get The.Out Of My Pool and our personal favourite The Chelsea Clintons. "I think they just give off that energy, like you can just tell they're doing it from a good place," said one reveller of the band. 

The reporter was keen to push, Doctor Shlmo and the GI Clinic, which one gig-goer said she was "really excited to see them live.." and Shorty Jizzle and the Plumbercrucks were described as "unique for sure". Two Door Cinema Club were the only real band used in the segment, though one music 'fan' said he'd enjoyed their album 'DJ Cornmeal'. Doh!

Arctic Monkeys Beatles Cover Soars Up Itunes Singles Chart


Arctic Monkeys Beatles NME Danny Boyle David Beckham Rowan Atkinson Underworld Two Door Cinema Club Frank Turner

Arctic Monkeys' cover of 'Come Together' by The Beatles is quickly climbing up the UK singles chart, according to NME.com today (July 30, 2012). The band played the track as part of the Olympics opening ceremony on Friday (July 27, 2012) and it's currently risen to number 14 on the iTunes chart. Rumours had been circulating for some time before the ceremony took place as to who would be performing in Danny Boyle's extravagant ceremony but most of the bands were able to keep their involvement under wraps.

A compilation of all the music played at the ceremony has been made available and is entitled 'Isles of Wonder.' The album is currently number one on the iTunes chart in France, Britain, Spain and Belgium. It's also at number five in the US. The album was released online not long after the end of the televised ceremony, which featured a number of musical performances, as well as appearances from the likes of David Beckham and Rowan Atkinson. It also featured a pointed celebration of the NHS, which many have interpreted as Boyle's protests against the government's plans to dismantle the National Health Service.

Also doing well in the charts is 'Caliban's Dream,' the track written by Underworld and sung by Two Door Cinema Club's frontman Alex Trimble. 'Caliban's Dream' is currently at number five. Frank Turner's 'I Still Believe' is at number 32 and EMILE SANDE's 'Abide With Me' is at number 26.

Alex Trimble Almost Missed Out On Olympics Performance


Two Door Cinema Club

Two Door Cinema Club frontman Alex Trimble almost missed out on the chance to perform in the opening ceremony of the London Olympics because he was convinced the job offer was a joke.

Director Danny Boyle, who put together the near four-hour epic, approached Trimble's manager and asked if he would be interested in taking part in Friday's (27Jul12) big event, but the singer didn't believe the news and hung up on his representative during an early morning phone call.

He tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "The call woke me up and I was half asleep and hungover. He told me Danny wanted me to perform a song at the Olympics. I listened and then went back to sleep. When I woke up I actually thought the call had been a dream. But when my manager called back, I obviously said: 'Yes'."
