Maybe a stretch but.. Fiona Apple: Eleven Months Wait - For the second time the release date of an album of her's was pushed back, this time almost a year. For Entry To The Prestige - at one point mentioned that she was waiting "until her label found a new president and that she didn’t want her work to be mishandled amid corporate disarray" The First Rejected - The first time she was faced with release problems, it was speculated to be because the record label didn't feel that Extraordinary Machine had commercial appeal, or a hit single.
Doesn't T.I. have an ep called 11 months and one day?? Can't really figure out any of the rest but I figured I'd throw that out there
Edit: After looking into it he was in jail for 11 months...maybe the second line represents getting back into the real world? Can't figure out the third
This is a stretch, but so is everything in rooclues. The third line could be because he's up to sign with a new label and since he's been on the same label this whole time (?) it will be his first rejection turning someone down?
TI is in my projected lineup and it fits the Atlanta rapper a year theory.
2/6 The Vaccines
2/15 A Silent Film
4/12 The Mowgli's
4/16 The Black Crowes
4/23 Fitz & the Tantrums
5/10 Cracker/Camper Van Beethoven
5/19 The Shins
7/19 Pearl Jam @ Wrigley
9/13-9/15 Riot Fest
Oh, something I didn't think about yesterday either with the Mumford thing. Their first single off Babel was "I Will Wait". Which helps with the first line a little more then onto the 11 month wait for the Grammys because the first was rejected and the whole Babel/Babylon prestige/heaven thing.

People see "months" and immediately think Decemberists because its the only band they can think of with a month in the title.
Again, it's "Eleven Months Wait." Unless they're being extremely careless with their grammar, that doesn't mean "a wait which lasted 11 months," it means "there are eleven months which wait/are waiting."

I dont think an apostrophe makes any difference. I'm not the best at english though so I could totally be wrong. I think the difference is this Eleven months wait or "An" eleven-month wait (if we were actually speaking about an amount of time that has passed)
I love Inforoo grammar debates. My point stands: "11 months wait" sounds like 11 months who are waiting, not a wait that lasts 11 months.
Of course, we may be nitpicking. I'm still trying to figure out a way to fit FOALS or Horse the Band into this.
i never EVER thought i would see horse the band mentioned on here. i quacking loved them growing up. they are some of the craziest people i have ever met. always put on a great show. i don't know how well they'd go over on the farm. plus they always seems to be touring japan.
