Make that 129 bands: Swervedriver to reunite at Coachella, and again at the Fonda
Swervedriver was the roughest, heaviest, least wistful of the early 1990s British guitar-band invasion. Yeah, like their compadres, the Oxford-born band's stages were, too, filled with effects pedals, but where Ride, Pale Saints and, to a lesser extent, My Bloody Valentine, accented the pop over the rock, Swervedriver kicked out the jams. To wit, their hardest, heaviest single, "Rave Down."
So that makes 129 bands playing Coachella.
Swervedriver will reunite for a full tour, and will gig at the Music Box at the Henry Fonda Theatre on May 31.
