Tool August 2014 Newsletter published

The Tool August 2014 Newslettertopolband has been published by Blair, and it has a couple of interesting points which, as usual, are open for interpretation.

Firstly he talks about Tool fans misinterpreting some recent posts, including confusing the recent Sturgeon album release party with that of a new Tool album. I admit the thought did cross my mind, however I refrained from emailing Blair about this. He also mentions that some expressed concerns that Danny joining Primus would create a considerable delay. For those not paying attention, it’s worth nothing he’s only lined up to play 3 shows with them. Oh, and word is the band have been practicing some Tool tunes, so expect more that just the usual Primus set…

He also talks about entomologist Rance Q. Spartley and something called the “Hoola Effect”. In the past references to Rance have often coincided with tour planning, so perhaps things are being set in motion for tours in 2015 (presumably post album release).

Finally he discusses the Loft, and it’s recent upgrade of soundproofing in a couple of rooms. With that he posts another photo of some “lenticular keychains” which appear to be some DAT tapes with recordings of No Quarter and You Lied on them, as well as some “final mixes” from 2000. Presumably this all relates to Salival.

I thought it was an enjoyable read. Lots of hints (apparently) about things going on, but nothing that I’m gonna bust my brains fretting over. Good stuff.

Yes, we wouldn’t want you busting any of those sexy, sexy brains of yours. Especially over something as inconsequential as a Tool newsletter.

So The Blair mentions Hoola quite a bit and the mark the lizard-thing leaves behind as being an infinity symbol. Two O’s in Hoola make an eight, the infinity symbol is an eight… Problem 8 solved!

Waiting for a website to falsely publish an article announcing Tool’s new album as PHARAWA…

A yes the Hoola…infinity…lizard….problem 8….Artwork in lateralus resembles an infinity symbol pulsing from middle out. Problem 8 has to do with how Adam recycles guitar riffs so that they can be placed over one another in some sort of cross album puzzle of time signatures. Bacon?

PHARAWA sounds a bit too much like “far away” for me to get excited. but clearly the work is continuing so i’ll continue to patiently wait.

What is a sturgeon? It’s a fish. Who likes fish? Seagulls. Tool’s going to release a cover of A Flock Of Seagulls ‘I Ran’ sometime in the near future.
