IIRC it was Brendan coming up short against Mac. But, you know. It's Mac.

Sometimes when threads get bumped, I get excited and hoping for a show announcement of some kind.

Ever Since The A.O.L. reunion, I think the same thing.

Damn you FUGAZI! Throw us a bone.

For a band that's been strictly about making a ton of money since before their inception, they could certainly cash in on this AND sell a ton of merch.

Hey, this seems like a decent place to mention it.
I had Brendan Canty on Protonic Reversal, we talked about a lot of stuff. If hearing from a very awesome member of fugazi that you don't see tons of interviews from interests you, you can hear that here:
Episdoe 81 - Brendan Canty - (Fugazi, Deathfix, Burn to Shine)
stream/download

It was pretty funny having him on the day before those unfunny fugazi reunion posts.

I have listened to this unfortunately-titled Messthetics track a few times, and consider it beneath every Fugazi instrumental. Including "Joe #1" and "Number 5."

I don't mean to compare this band to Fugazi, either. I understand the guitarist is of a different school, but this track does not succeed on a prog level or on a punk rock level. Every time he stops licking and soloing and repeats the riff, it's like the energy of the song reverts to 0. They need another melodic player - guitarist or otherwise - or a singer.

Oh, cmon. "Hate" the guitar? This is pretty cool:

I feel like THIS is how they start a new band...add Ian, Guy and second drummer and go for it...instead of just doing a reunion.

I would be kinder if I knew anyone in in the band, but since I don't, I'll say this is bad music. Totally forgettable, unremarkable, uninteresting music.

Nah, they just need a SONG(S). This would be totally fine if they actually wrote a song. The one I heard was barely even an idea.

I've heard the record and it's fantastic! Gorgeous moments mixed with fun, exciting parts. I think when you hear the entire record, that song fits in a cool way. "Serpent's Tongue" is sort of the "Pull the Cup" of the record.

If you're not into instrumental, 3 piece, guitar-based stuff, it might not be your bag.

Haven't heard the recorded album yet, but I listened to this last night...

...and thought it was... pretty darn good, with some great moments. Did occasionally want someone to grab the microphone and yell a funny or provocative couplet or two on top of it, but all in all I think the new band is Not Crap.

Naysayers, let's see what you guys are doing creatively when you're that age.

I never understand this argument. I cannot play an instrument to save my life. Should I enjoy all music by all musicians because I can't create a song with a gun held to my head?

I love these dudes, but it's not my bag...even though I don't have an album I recorded to fight it with.

No, you're entitled to your opinions, like everyone else. But if someone's doing the "heavy lifting" of writing songs, playing in a band, making recordings, etc., it carries more weight somehow. I guess I find it more admirable to play in a pretty cool band in one's fifties (when that's very uncommon where I live) than to readily dismiss it on the internet after hearing one song. Granted, listening to that whole set was what sold me on the group. Wouldn't mind seeing them live.

I'll give you that. Playing in a band is indeed more admirable than making comments on a message board.

Therefore, logically speaking, "Serpent Tongue" is good song after all!

(BTW, snarky comments aside, I will be thrilled if the album is good...just not feeling this first song! Ever hear some of them recent Devo records?)
