It was at short notice, but Danny was the guest on today’s Children of Saturn radio show, which I was lucky enough to hear most of today. The show has been on a break for a couple of months, but started up again this morning and should be back to normal, hopefully with some interesting guests in the coming weeks.
Danny played a range of cool tunes, and spoke about a bunch of things which may interest you guys, even though none of them are huge revelations:
- He played us a track off the new Volto! album – which was fantastic in my opinion
- Mentioned that Volto! are playing another show at the Baked Potato this weekend
- Just waiting on artwork for the new Volto! album. Vinyl lovers will be happy to hear that their format of choice should be available.
- Pigmy Love Circus are having a reunion show in August.
- On Tool – “Me, Adam, and Justin are banging away. Trying to get Maynard in there, but you know, no wine before its time.”
- Bill Bruford from King Crimson recently sent him a miniature snare drum
So there you have it, it was a pretty cool show, plenty of prog rock was played and the chatroom was fun. Looking forward to tuning in again next week provided I’m not working in the office.
Rynne mentioned that a podcast of the show should become available soon, so stay tuned to their Facebook page for details on that.
Robert Fripp loves Taco Bell.
Yo quiero Taco Bell.
Great! Now I can’t stop thinking about Taco Bell. Thanks!
That FB link isn’t working.
Works now, thanks!
I wish I’d heard that Volto! song.
For those interested this is a snippet of the Volto! song played:
nacho average song
Holy shit, that is awesome.
That is a damn good song.
dammit, i always remember CoS is on after it’s over!
I hope all this time without Maynard means they’ve written a double album.
Wow, love the Volto material….can’t wait!
Any updates on MTVOID??
“no wine before its time”….No new Tool music till its right. Can’t force it.
But, I bet Maynard will put wine, puscifer, APC, and godknowswhatelse as a priority over Tool. He better lay down his best work yet on this album. The only thing that keeps my hopeful is that Maynard has realized that he is most creative when he is multi talsking with different projects and kinds of music. It might be a much slower process but i think he is cranking out some brilliant shit.
or “no wine before its time” means maynard won’t go work with Tool until his wine work is done for the season. I guarantee the rest of the band would love to have maynard at the loft to try out these songs. its really hard to pin down a complete structure for a song without knowing what the vocals will be doing.
I couldn’t really tell if Danny meant that as a semi-relevant metaphor or if he was really talking about Maynard’s vineyard schedule. Maybe its a little of both.
Seriously, no one gives a fuck about Volto! or Pygmy Love Circues. Cut the crap. And Maynard is just growing past what Tool stands for, it’s sad really. He doesn’t want to fill the role of prog-rock frontman hero to everyone, he just wants to have peace of mind and slow down and enjoy life now that he’s grown past his angst, thanks to Tool. Although, Tool has the highest potential for eternal and legendary influence on the world so it should be his main priority, although in the back of his mind Maynard knows this, and is quite possibly… Read more »

Volto! track is sick!
@ThatGuy or “no wine before its time” means maynard won’t go work with Tool until his wine work is done for the season. I guarantee the rest of the band would love to have maynard at the loft to try out these songs. its really hard to pin down a complete structure for a song without knowing what the vocals will be doing. That’s not true at all. The band has actually been quoted many times declaring the opposite; That the three of them work out these complex pieces and the vocals virtually *have* to come last because of the… Read more »
^Go listen to what Danny actually said.
“We are trying to get enough to get Maynard in there”
