Volta became The Onion version of themselves, no help needed :) And yeah, PF was rumoured to be about Juan. "you couldn't be a spic if you tried" etc

I was intrigued so I just listened to Pineapple Face, and I have no idea what the lyrics are. I think I could only make out one word towards the end ("motherfucker"?).

 

Also, wow, what a dreadful song.

Omar re-records Juan's bass parts from his solo records. Omar calls him a sociopath on the Dean Del Rey podcast. Omar writes and records Pineapple Face, jesus fucking christ those lyrics. Omar anglicises Juan's name on Volta represses and move his name to the very last of the band credits. I can't think what he might have done to provoke such horrid treatment, but it is a petty and childish way to deal with it. If he's done something awful, explain it. Don't just call him a sociopath like we're hanging off your every word and take it verbatim. What is it? Did he fuck your sister? Did he sneak smoked pancetta into the steamed broccoli? Was he trying to unionise the Volta? WHAT TEH FUCK

Simple explanation: Omar is a sociopath

It does look like Juan added "Mars Volta" back to his Instagram profile. he had removed it a few months back.

 

 

I mean, yeah.... But that might have more to do with his pre-head injury gig being extremely tainted due to all the allegations against Marilyn Manson.

 

Manson and TMV are two of his past associations that have the greatest brand recognition, and one of those is currently for all the wrong reasons. Most people absolutely love his bass work with Volta, and unless something similar to Manson emerges against Cedric/Omar (never impossible with any artist/individual, as all kinds of recent stuff has shown - think Bob Dylan just a few days ago), then why not advertise some of the best work you've done regardless of the intra-band issues that seem to exist between certain members.

 

Obviously the above is just speculation, though. Would be great if him and Omar could patch things up sooner rather than later, but we know nothing much about why they had such a bad falling-out after seeming to be so tight. Still feel that Dean Delray dropped the ball a bit by not pressing Omar harder on that 'sociopath' comment. I know it came out of the blue, but I just feel that you can't let a comment like that pass so easily, however surprised you may be; at least return to it down the line before recording has finished  :shrug: . Easy to say from behind my keyboard, though....

It only amused me that Del Rey immediately assumed it was "the drummer". Anyway there are plenty of horrendous band fallings outs, from serious shit, that don't get half as petty as this.

Did Cedric ever said anything about it?

Or is it Omar only?

 

While stuff with Pridgen or Blake Fleming have been mentioned multiple times and by multiple band members

I totally missed the part where he had his basslines rerecorded. Also Pineapple Face, but I haven't kept up with Omar's solo output. Not everyone grows up, I guess!

Cedric never said about it but he has been in unsubscribed to Juan social media for a while, and sent his blessings to Juan when the head injury happened

That might have been because of how Juan kept playing with Juliette Lewis, the scientology thing and all that?

Omar is a dick.

 

I've also unfollowed Johann on all social media.

 

Fed up of his bullshit claims and also making sure he is in every single photo promoting whatever doing his sombre duck bill face.

 

Mate you're just some rich lad cosplaying a label, pipe down.

That's what I assumed was a major catalyst, but who knows honestly

Yeah, like no point in getting angry further, I think the boxset rollout has been fairly disingenuous and misfired in almost every way. Clouds Hill's social media presence just became too annoying also. My fault for continuing to follow for too long. 

 

Ho hum. 

 

Feels like Omar and Cedric have run the well dry creatively at this point also.

Yeah he was thanking Discogs because he had to go on there so many times to prepare the release of that rack of white label records - one can assume that's ORL lenghty solo discography.

These reissues come out 1-2 months apart with landscape being final on January 7 (I don't get why couldn't they make an actual artwork for it???). Maybe we get LP7 in march-april 2022? (Probably not though)

Why is everyone here assuming so much? You admit to knowing nothing yet stir up the drama and play up non existent scenarios in your heads. Lol its like the current narrative is to be bitter and assume you understand who these people are.

 

I wish the releases and information we are getting got more attention, FB is the only place where people seem to enjoy themselves and the art. I guess I'm glad I never got stuck here instead    :yesss:
