YEAH! I hope this is true, no offence to pridgen but I've never liked what he turned tmv into, he ruined tmv for me, I hope they get a jazz drummer next time, someone with real taste in sound, dynamics and so on... no-one can top theodore though, althought i think he brought everything he's got on the three albums already. but youknow there's so many so AMAZING drummers out there... they should try like an older european jazz gezzer out, i hope they now understand that chops isn't everything.

chris dave has crazy grooves, but i think he's a bit too r&b, they need someone with a more out of the box flavor i think.

hell bring JT back!

No thomas pridgen is not Fired

That Ikey twit is no longer on his profile


Well color me fucking surprised. Ain't that convenient. :rolleyes:


This never happened.


But I saw you leave...



..through a thread of reposted facebook updates.

this never happened......

It's too bad Phish is too busy with their first fall tour in six years, or the Volta could do the sensible thing and hire Jon Fishman.

Maybe they could let him sing, too.

iam pretty sure Fish yelling "Olive Loaf" during the end section of Roulette Dares might piss off somebody...that and TMV has no need for a frock...girl pants maybe but not a frock

For a band that talk (or at least used to) about Can every chance they get (before they started talking only about themselves) why have they moved in a direction that seems to be about every band member overplaying (apart from Juan and Ikey, who should be pushed upfront)?
As impressed i am by Prigden, and that the Bedlam show I was at was far better than the three times I saw them with John, there is definately a lack of dynamics since Jon left. He knew when and what to play which is more important than being able to fill every bit of space with noise. Omar knew this once too (listen to how much space their is on Tremulant) before he began soloing over every really-cool-on-its-own-leave-it-as-it-is riff. Although, listening to Xenopehenes there aren't as many two-note tremolo-picked wah solos as on other solo records - its an excellent album!)
Dynamics-wise, the drum thing wouldnt matter too much on record if they weren't smothered by every sound being the same volume and all of them effected by the same delay and reverb. Dynamics should work on a song basis, not per album.
Having said that, still the best band going, the most adventurous (apart from Octahedron - but kudos for doing it), exciting live and I always look forward to their records. I just hope they remember that they are a band - working together to create great music, not each of them (or some of them) playing like a virtuoso all the time.
