Maynard speaks to Triple J

Maynard and Mat Mitchell had a chat to The Doctor on Triple J today. The 10 minute interview covers a range of A Perfect Circle and Puscifer issues, Maynard’s autobiography and even has a sneaky Tool question thrown in (hat’s off the The Doc for that one). Reveals nothing new, however it is quite funny in parts and Matt and Maynard are both in fine spirits.

Update: While re-listening to the interview on the way home I realised it was actually Mat Mitchell, not Matt McJunkins! I like the photo of the double-t’d Matt, so that will stay for now!

Man Puscifer is lucky the music stands up live (is in fact about a billion times better live) because with the fucking militant atmosphere they had created at the Enmore last night, ppl were resenting them HARD.

For the record, my experience at the Enmore was the polar opposite of Snaggle’s. Everyone around me had an awesome time, the last way I’d describe the atmosphere would be “militant”, I spent virtually the entire gig on my feet, as did everyone around me, and noe one was seen to being disruptive. Security was pretty reasonable (everyone taking photo’s got a tap on the shoulder and a warning, not “immediate eviction”) But that’s me, each to their own, and I can only vouch for the area around me, down the front left corner, so idea what was happening elsewhere..… Read more »

Was at the Brisbane show last Friday. Thought the vibe was pretty good. Sour Grapes was a fantastic opener!

Sounds like Maynard might wrap up the TOOL project and then be done with it. I’m kind of hoping this is their last album because his other projects aren’t very impressive anymore. Maybe one more APC project would be nice but who knows? This Puscifer shit is out of control. I normally wouldn’t judge a band until I’ve seen them live but their antics in addition to their shitty recordings just don’t interest me at all. The only thing of theirs that has sparked my interest in the slightest has been “Potions” and that’s because it was related to Trent.… Read more »

I’ll make sure I don’t completely write them off until I see them live. I’m not sure I’m going to see them live ever though haha. Too many other bands I’d rather pay for. We’ll see though… if the stars align perhaps?

I am not sure how I felt about the gig at the Tivoli last Friday night. Massive hour + long line to get in (security was way over the top and slowed down everything) only to have a metal detector waved around you, then given numerous warnings by different people to not take pictures, videos or even if you pull your phone/camera out that you will be unceremoniously thrown out with your stuff confiscated. After finally getting in, grabbing a beer and heading into the stage area the lights go down and a couple of video screen light up and… Read more »

Over an hour? < 25 minutes, more like. And would rather that than a support act on a night like that. The show's were always billed/advertised as more than just a normal "gig". And it;s not like the video came at the expensive of music – they still played a full set. nothing was stopping people going and getting another beer or having a smoke outside. Besides, doubt those people who complained would have done so in 2001/2002 tour when Tool took a 20 minute intermission half way through the set and Tool film clips played on the big screen.

all that overly hardcore security is a turn off for me. possibly cause i audio tape i wouldnt want to deal with that (got popped at a Danzig show for the same type of security to deal with) but even without that i find it to be a bit much for a concert. plus i dont like puscifer much anyway.

man, its all negative posts these days it seems. haha
