Re: General Tool Discussion

Fun fact: One of my senior projects in culinary school was a food truck called “Vision Quest Catering” and it was designed to followed Tool (and other bands) on tour, setting up in the parking lot before and after each show... turns out all the licensing and laws that The Man enforces kept that dream from ever coming to fruition. Following Tool from show to show has always been a dream of mine.

It was pretty rowdy but also kind of nervous scary. TJ was a really adventure in those days.

The local cops confiscated EVERY SINGLE cigarette on the way in. I'm like HA cool no smoking.

Then inside the same cops had a table set up and sold the ciggys back to the group.

Lol.

This is how I felt at Knotfest 2014 in San Bernadino. Made me throw my weed away going into the campground, even though I had my doctors recommendation on hand... then there was a medical weed booth in the festival selling 8ths at a premium price. Disgusting.

Tool in TJ sounds cool, though.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Author & Punisher opening for next leg? I Put him on Spotify this morning... and I think like it. I guess he’s an engineering dropout that builds his own instruments to create doomy rhythmically layered industrial tracks. Distorted, grinding, pulsing, agonizing and at times climatic. Interesting. Similar feel to 3Teeth, but for some reason I like A&P a little more. We’ll see how he does in an arena setting.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Author & Punisher seems better suited for film scores. It's dark and creepy and would fit in nicely with a horror film.

Yeah. Not super stoked on this. I guess I'm happy for a fellow San Diegan but I may have to skip him.

Me neither. And hearing it is anything like 3Teeth is not exactly a ringing endorsement. They were not my thing at all... bring back Melt Banana!

Author & Punisher are much better than 3eeth - a different style of industrial.

FWIW though, I think the latest 3eeth album was pretty good

I do find A & P to be more interesting and less pretentious than 3Teeth.
I didn’t mind 3Teeth’s cover of pumped up kicks. After sitting through them in San Fran and San Diego I hadn’t really revisited them until that came up on my Spotify radio.

Looks like A&P are in Seattle next week with Cattle Decapitation. I may have to go check out his homemade setup up-close.

Re: General Tool Discussion

The producer is freaking out because they had to remove most of the iconic tiny-desk and the cubicle behind it just to get “the essentials” back there for Danny. The neighboring offices have to close early due to overcrowding and fans taking over the rest of the complex, and out of nowhere, a group of 4 guys start selling armfuls of poorly screen-printed Fool shirts. Nobody thought to dial back the fog machines, so they keep blasting the rented office-space with arena amounts of artificial fog bringing visibility down to mere centimeters. Normally, the staff/audience would be concerned but earlier in the day someone spiked the coffee pot with a heroic dose of LSD25 and everyone is just starting to realize the room has detached from reality and is soaring through a dimension of fog and shifting colors. The music cuts the dancing prism to give canvas for Maynard’s message. The set is a brutal 45 mins consisting of only 7empest, Undertow, Hooker with a Penis, and The Grudge. The station has been off-air for hours and the sponsor’s messages have just been playing on loop, but the NPR staff is nowhere near ready to regain control of their psyche yet. After the show silence fills the room as everyone is struggling to put their heads back together and regain control of their bodies. It feels like we’ve been gone for hours. The only audio recording of the performance was on the single microphone from the webcam that was rolling since soundcheck, however it’s video was completely masked by the fog in the room. As the room begins to air out, the scene of destruction is unveiled. A couple of the younger assistants lay giggling on the floor among the coffee mugs, staplers, binders, and other office-debris that got scattered in the chaos. For some, this was their first NPR Tiny Desk concert and it will take them some time to process everything completely. For others- They realize this was the wildest and most meaningful NPR Tiny Desk concert they will ever witness. They’re overwhelmed with a sense of satisfaction, completeness and understanding that this marks the end of their career. They can retire now, living a life of humble solitude and meditation.
