After hearing his first solo stuff on GSL, is anyone else pumped as hell for this?
Discuss.

"FBR: Looking at the number of solo albums Omar makes, he's clearly constantly writing. In terms of songs, how does he differentiate what's for one of his own records and what's for the band?

CBZ: Some stuff he just feels passionately about, and that's for Volta. Or I'll stick my head around the door and ask if we can use something for the band.

FBR: And can we expect a Cedric solo album any time soon?

CBZ: Yeah, there's a lot of music that's ready. I just need to get around to singing on all of it. I've been working a lot with a friend of mine called Deantoni Parks, a drummer who's spent time with like, Tom Waits and John Cale. He plays in this band Kudu who are pretty much a modern version of Vanity Sticks, and he toured with Volta for a while. Omar's made a couple of electronic records with him. He's known as like the live drummer that can sound like a machine."

Yup, I'm surprised so many people hadn't heard of it before when it was mentioned earlier here:

The interview says that:
-Cedric is on an alternative project with Deantoni Parks

I felt a tingling in my loins when I heard about that, but they'll be touring off of Octa, when will he get around singing on it? Next year?

I agree. I can't wait to see how his songwriting has adapted with the better part of ten years of Volta under his belt now. And with Deantoni on the skins, I hope we get to hear more of that Afro-Carribbean vibe that left TMV with Jon Theodore (not a slam on Thomas).

@itsgonrain -- They always seem to find time on tour to record. They were recording a lot of Octa on the 2nd leg of the Bedlam tour. Frances was recorded like all over the world. I'm sure that he'll find time.

I feel like it'll be a cross between Octa and Thom Yorke's solo album... a lot of slow songs and a lot of electronics... just an educated guess.

The Eraser with latin grooves and non sensical lyrics would be amazing!
