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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Toolarmy has a post indicating that a limited quantity Signed Lateralus Vinyl was available earlier today. Unfortunately for those of you reading this for the first time, they appear to be sold out. No word on if any more of these will be made available at any point, though I’d suggest there wouldn’t be many more hidden away in the TA warehouse.
Maynard posted a Puscifer Update on his Myspace site today. Not much we don’t already know, but here’s the list:
- Meats Meier is doing a Dozo video
- A Queen B DVD is in production
- There’s a Suicide Girls interview available
- There will be interviews and/or reviews in the December issues of Spin and Rolling Stone
- V is for Vagina will be available in vinyl, possibly as soon as 6 weeks.
I’ve been back up in Queensland this week, so things have been a little slow on updates for Fourtheye. Things should return to normal next week. Here’s a couple of items that have come across my desk:
For those that have missed the various comments, there is an interview of Maynard done by Patton Oswalt. Check it out here.
Ryan tells me that he’s selling his Signed Lateralus Vinyl on eBay. Bids started at $0 so it’s quite cheap at the moment. Don’t expect it to remain that way though!! EDIT: Link has been changed to a relisted auction!
Finally, Blair has posted on Toolband/Army about the recently discovered Salival Vinyl. He assures us it is a bootleg and in now way officially sanctioned by the band. Buyers beware! He also mentions that there are no plans for 10,000 Days vinyl, but if and when he hears there there are, he will post it.
Rare Records in Melboure have a copy of Salival on Vinyl for sale. According to their website it is:
12 Inch Vinyl
EXTREMELY RARE!!! – Only 350 Made!!! – Double Clear Lime And Grey Marble Vinyl – Picture Sleeve – Comes In Vaccum Sealed Silver Pouch – Sticker On Front
I’ve never heard of Salival being pressed to vinyl at all, so suspect it may be some kind of bootleg. Anyone else out there seen one of these before? Anyone have a comment on whether or not this is an official release?
Thanks to Raymond for the tip.
