Pigmy Love Circus

Pigmy Love Circus – features Danny

Volto! gig, Pigmy pictures, ‘Busy” band members

Blair posted several updates to Toolband/Army today.  The first lot where a bunch of pictures from the recent Pigmy Love Circus gig.  Some nice work there with several shots take by Danny‘s girlfriend RynneToolarmy members get a close up of Danny in action.

Also mentioned is that there is a Volto! gig coming up on Friday the 6th of March at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood.  Blair mentions it will be the last Volto! gig for a while:

as certain band members might be busy with other projects in the months ahead.

Read into that what you will…

Meshuggah Live DVD, Pigmy Love Circus

According to a recent post on Blabbermouth, Meshuggah will be releasing a live DVD later on this year, and will also be recording an album for release in 2010.

Danny’s other band, Pigmy Love Circus are playing a gig tonight with bands Sturgeon, Sextapes and Hectors Revenge at the Key Club in Hollywood.  Sounds like fun if you can make it!

Pigmy Love Circus Live!

Pigmy Love Circus play a rare live show in February with bands Sextapes (featuring Chris Pitman) and Sturgeon (featuring Kent Brisley), all of who apparently played in a band in Kansas called Ibizabar.  The gig will be held at the Keyclub Hollywood on February 4th.  First 50 through the door get a free Sturgeon CD!

Pigmy Love Circus return!

Mad_Sweeny616 from Toolarmy posts that the mighty Pigmy Love Circus (featuring Danny on drums) will be playing with Killing Joke at the House of Blues (LA I presume) on the 9th of October.  If you can, you should definitely go!

Danny Says….

Tigran contacted me the other day, saying he ran into Danny at a Jazz Show at the La Ve Lee club in LA. Apparently, Danny suggested the Pigmy Love Circus may be doing some stuff in the next few months (possible some shows and/or recording) before Tool start up again in April. Tigran presumed this meant more shows, but I guess in light of recent news it means they may be starting writing songs then.

Whatever they do in April, be it song writing or tour, I’m sure we’ll be happy with the results!

Chet Zar on Alterati

Today’s post on Alterati features an interview with long-time Tool collaborator Chet Zar.   He discusses several aspects of his art in the lead up to a could of shows featuring his work.  The second part of the Pigmy Love Circus interview can also be found on the site.

Pigmy Love Circus Interview

Part 1 of a 3 part interview with Pigmy Love Circus is up on Alterati.  The interview is with Peter and Mike.  Parts 2 and 3 should be coming soon I hope!

Triumph, Notes from the Crew

Blair tells us that Mike Savage from Pigmy Love Circus has triumphed over hs bout of throat cancer.  Apparently he’s ready for his next challenge, which I’m sure some hope is a new Pigmy’s album.

The Notes From The Crew section in Toolarmy finally got a start today, and it’s been revealed that Eric, the bands stage manager is writing it.  In his first post he talks about how Tool’s equipment is transported from one continent to another.  Hopefully the first in what will be in interesting journal. Thanks to Adam for suggesting he writes these notes for us.

Drummers Digest speaks to Danny

Drummers Digest have posted an interview with Danny. Not a bad interview, though it really doesn’t reveal much we don’t already know either:

Danny: “The record companies are in trouble, it’s getting harder and harder to sell records. That was why we tried really hard to come up with a cool package that can’t be downloaded, that’s like a piece of art that people want to hold in their hands. So that was kind of the philosophy about the package for 10,000 Days.”

He also mentions that making a type of bird extinct to create his latest drumkit was a joke, and that he’s looking to record with Pigmy Love Circus again in the next year.

From John Ziegler

John Ziegler from Pigmy Love Circus has written the following regarding the new Tool CD, presumably on his Myspace site, though I haven’t had time to check that. Thanks to Bastardometer on Toolarmy for the heads up.

the tools have put in a good year and a half working on the songs for this one.
mjk even has words and melodies for the tunes already!
and to be honest, i’ve heard all the demos for the cuts that are going on the album…
i was even asked to critque em a few times…haha(danny is nuts)!
and i can safely say this….
with a few epic 15 minute plus tunes in the program…
IMO… think “meddle” meets “master of reality” meets “discipline” meets “undertow”.
on top of that, with joe barresi engineering….it’s gonna be KILLER!
prog rock is gonna be crunchin’ and slithering towards the masses once again in a few months!


thanx and cheers,
john Z

Sounds good to me….
