Danny confirms that Tool remasters are in the works?

On Reddit the other day some chap called cptsweatpantz decided to start an online petition to get Tool to re-release their albums on vinyl.  A noble suggestion, however was met with the usual cries of “online polls don’t do shit!” – something I agree with despite signing anyway.

Lo and behold the creator of the petition receives an email from Danny Carey (screenshot of which is below) in which he says:

The petition won’t really matter.  We are already in the process of remastering all of our albums for release on vinyl in the near future.

Thanks for your enthusiasm Josh,

D.C.

Good news on the surface of things, since I suspect many would embrace the opportunity to grab some legitimate, and reasonably priced Tool vinyl.  “Near future”  can be taken to mean anytime between now and End Times.

It should be pointed out that it’s pretty easy to spoof email addresses, so I’d suggest some caution here (though I have no real reason to doubt this random Reddit guy).  Fingers crossed it’s legit though.

Complete Set of Tool Vinyl for sale

Evildiscokid from Toolarmy has a complete set of sealed Tool and APC vinyl up for sale, and wants to avoid putting this up on Ebay.  If this sounds like the kind of thing you’d be interested in (not sure if he’s willing to split the collection at all) then let me know, and I’ll put you in touch with him.  Alternatively if you’re a Toolarmy member just PM him.

Signed Cesaro Summability on Ebay

Amer emailed me the other day, letting me know that he’s being forced to part with his signed copy of the “stupendously rare” (his words not mine!) Cesaro Summability picture disc.  Apparently only 25 of these signed items exist in the world, so for you die hard collectors this sounds like a great opportunity to open your wallets and grab a copy.

Current bidding on Ebay puts it at $222 + shipping, and the auction has another six days remaining.  Amer mentions he’d rather this go to a genuine Tool fan rather than a re-seller, so check it out!

Aenima Promo Vinyl on Ebay

Amer emailed me today and mentioned that he’s selling his Aenima Promo Vinyl.  He mentions on the auction that it’s the “Holy Grail of Tool Collecting”.  That may or may not be the case, but anyway, it’s currently bidding at over US$200.  Those of you who are keen to get a copy of the rare piece of vinyl, check it out!

Puscifer News

News from the world of Puscifer…

New music is in the works, Maynard talking about where the collective is in the process:

“We’re starting to pull together some new pieces. Josh Eustis,  Lustmord, our visiting Irish Bass Player, Tanya  and I are indulging in some new ideas, old ideas, recipes, bad jokes, and the occasional 2 on 2 ball game. Not much to report quite yet, but soon.”

A behind the scenes clip from the making of the DoZo video:

Mer De Noms Vinyl Re-issue

According to this article on Blend Music, vinyl is making a comeback, and EMI/Capitol will be re-issing it’s top 15 selling albums on vinyl in August. Amongst this list is A Perfect Circle’s Mer De Noms. Amongst the other releases are John Lennon’s Imagine, Jimi Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys and Beach Boy’s Pet Sounds. Vinyl collectors should keep their eyes peeled.

“Please be advised…

that A Perfect Circle and Tool are still alive and well”

Or so I read in an email from the Puscifer Mailing list:

Hello, APC fans.

As many of you may have heard, Billy and I are engaged in our own little projects for the moment.

His is called Ashes Divide and mine is called Puscifer.

Puscifer is perfect for those of you who suffer from ADHD, Obsessive Compulsive Accessory Purchases, Vinyl fetishes, Turrets and/or An Irreverent Sense of Humor. You will need to bring one, severeal, or all of these disorders if you seek to embrace/understand Puscifer.

We’ve included a number of websites for you to browse so you can determine if this is in fact your flavor.

If not, no harm done (you can remove yourself at the bottom of this e-mail).

We’ll hopefully get along just fine without you, although we’d of course prefer to have you along to join us for the giggles.

Please be advised that A Perfect Circle and Tool are still alive and well.

This is simply MORE.

Because as you know, MORE IS BETTER. ALWAYS. God bless America.

Peace,

M J Keenan

Personally I hope Tool is more alive than APC, though as long as it’s not another eMotive, I’d welcome a new APC album.

Maynard talks about V is Viagra

Straight from the Puscifer Myspace Blog:

Just finished listening to the first ruff master for the V is for Viagra, remix collection. It’s so inspiring to hear how others musicians re-interpret these songs. Good times. There are for sure a few stand outs, but I won’t ruin it for you.
Lots of stuff about to be hatched. The video for DoZo is almost done. Meats is chain chugging power drinks to get it into the mastering studio on time. It will be released on April 29th, along with “V is for Viagra, the Vagina Remixes album”, a 7″ vinyl version of Queen B, a 7″ vinyl version of DoZo, and the 12″ vinyl of V is for Vagina. Patton Oswalt re-wrote the Airline Safety card information for the 12″. He’s a hoot. Love that guy. And we’ll be releasing an iTunes deluxe version of V is for Vagina with some bonus tracks. Yippee.

Soungs good!

V is for Viagra?

Several members of Toolarmy have mentioned that a new Puscifer remix album called V is for Viagra will be released on the 29th of April. This is news to me, and there’s no confirmation of this anywhere I can see, but I’d reckon it’s safe to assume there will be a remix album eventually.

Update: Turns out it’s on the Coming Soon section of the Puscifer website. Here are the details:

V is for Viagra, the Vagina remixes $13.99
The Vagina Remix album. Remixes from Paul Barker, Danny Lohner, Dave “Rave” Ogilvie, Josh Eustis, Lustmord, Mat Mitchell, Richard Devine, Joey Jordison, Michael Patterson, Contradicktator, Aaron Turner, and 8mm. Release Date: APRIL 29th, 2008

Other products also available on the 29th include Queen B, Dozo and V is for Vagina vinyl, as well as the Dozo DVD.

Thanks to gnjasmkr for the details.

Puscifer Update

According to a recent post on Maynard‘s Myspace site, the Queen B DVD will be available on Tuesday, and is a limited edition so don’t delay in ordering it (presumably from the Puscifer website?).  No word as to what’s on the DVD apart from the Queen B video, but it’s safe to say there’s probably no live Tool tracks.  Meats Meier is continuing work on the Dozo video, and according to the post is coming along well.  Also mentioned is that Lustmord is working on some Dub remixes that will probably be released on Vinyl and/or on iTunes.  Finally there are a couple more unreleased tracks being completed, and these are expected to appear on the V is for Vagina vinyl release.
