If that's true, it's disgraceful that Omar paid his bail and kept him in the band.

I like the story about Omar posting bail for Thomas in NYC. They went straight from police station to recording studio with Frusciante. Thomas tracked all the Octa drums in one take in the middle of the night. John was in shock.

Would love to see the source on this.

No digital source afaik. It was Rock-A-Rolla magazine, Issue #21, July/Aug 2009.

 

Octo drums were tracked in three days. Teflon and Cotopaxi were recorded at 2 am after Omar bailed Thomas out at midnight.

Hahahah what did Thomas get booked for that Omar had to bail him out? Always a weird situation with that dude it seems.....

I mean we’ve known that Omar took that “under the gun” approach to recording since FTM - some guys were fine with it, others hated it, etc. I don’t buy most of the first take stuff - guys had to have at least rehearsed the part with Omar, otherwise dynamics and verses/choruses would have all sorts of different parts/feels because the player would literally not know what’s coming.

That said, nocto does feel rushed and like first takes - if you listen to live dyslexicon v studio version, drums are way more dynamic and cool than the studio version. I dunno album does just have very jarring, abrasive production but I mean that’s what Omar is going for I guess. We’ll see what their next album is like - nocto being the last for them as of now just kind of feels like them limping to the finish line...

Could you share the other pages please? Looks like there might be some interesting facts about De Facto and Crypto on the other ones.
