Fair point.

Cedric did say this in one of his IG drawing stories. (paraphrasing) “we could make new shit based on the early style and enjoy it for a while but I know us...it’ll ware off really quick and we’ll get stuck”. Then he went on to say that they have to make new material and explore new ground because that’s what Volta was always about from its inception. That it might lose fans along the way but they’re kinda used to that.

I didn’t hear anything on Interalia that sounded like a retread of past ATDI songs. What are the comparisons exactly? It had the Punk energy, but besides that, it sounded completely different.

It made sense to toss all the Volta work out of the way and make the follow up to Relationship of Command. Without repeating RoC. Same thing applies to Volta. They shouldn’t be thinking about following up the recent album they did (Interalia, Diamanté). They gotta follow up Noctourniquet.

it sounded like they thought too hard about what atdi "should" sound like after ROC. Like they were trying too hard to be punk, rather than what the music they wanted to make 15 years later would actually sound like

Noctourniquet has more genuine "punk energy" imo, with songs like Whip Hand, Dyslexicon, Malkin Jewel etc

I mean I think when they said same head space for ATDI, they meant coming up with something that logically sounds like that band. That said; I think they wrote awesome tunes on that album: no wolf like the present, governed by contagions, hostage stamps, ghost tape no 9, etc are all great songs that I’ll listen to any day of the week, especially at the gym. Then the diamanté EP all 3 songs rock - that one you can tell they totally did for fun and it was amazing.

With TMV - we have no clue what it’ll be like. Maybe ATDI scratches that “rock band” itch for the guys and TMV is where they get weird? I did find it interesting that ATDI 2016-present started to add jams and solos to songs (enfilade, quarantined, etc stretched to like 10 mins). Then again, for all we know TMV will have Jon Theodore and they just had to work around his queens schedule.....we simply don’t know at this point.

I’ve never gotten the impression that Jon is interested in such a thing or is even really friends with them anymore.

He and Eva went to a ATDI show, and hung out win Omar and Cedric so they’re all on good terms now. But Jon doesn’t seem interested. And he’s busy. It’ll be Deantoni.

Maybe someone has better ears than me, but I tried using this to isolate Cedric's vocals on Aneidolon (Postulate) and still couldn't make out any more of the words:

I've been taking morphine for a few days now, thank you hospital. Point is, I have no idea whatsoever how Omar wrote Deloused on heroin. I couldn't even read sentences yesterday. I put Relayer on vinyl and passed out immediately. Anyway mad respect to Volta's astonishingly productive opiates phase.

Tolerance builds quickly. First, you can't do shit on it, then, you can't do shit without it.

recalling what i've heard and read, i believe Omar first tried heroin before joining ATDI, as an 18/19/20-year-old runaway. it's not clear to me at what point Cedric (let alone Jeremy) got involved.

We don't really know how intense their consumption actually was while they were active in ATDI/early TMV. All I know is that during the fall 2000 american tour with Murder City Devils it escalated when a friend who was dying of cancer gave them his stash of medication. Cedric got a nickname "Prince Valium" on this tour.

Valium is delicious but boy oh boy your tolerance ramps up so quickly. I still don't know how Ceddy was smoking 1000 dollars of weed and a week and was even able to get up off his couch let alone be on his fucking A game.

I'm a radiation oncologist. We somtimes prescribe like completely nuts doses of opiates/ morphine. Especially if the patients have a history of drug abuse.
They sometimes need doses that would instantly kill a normal person and don't even notice a big effect.
