This thread startin’ business is all complicated & shit…
Everybody read the Spin article, right? All of a sudden Tommy has done a 180, & it seems the fabled reunion isn’t so much a fairy tale but a possibility.
I would never fault anyone for a pay check. & If it happens, I’ll go, probably on more than one occasion. Still, I can’t help being turned off by the idea. The Mats have been many things over the years, but an oldies act sure-as-shit ain’t one of ‘em.
& I’m sorry, fuck precedence, it’s just not the Mats without Christopher Mars behind the kit. If the man don’t wanna play, the man don’t wanna play.
However, if Paul & Tommy went into the studio/basement together & cut a new record…Then decided to tour in support…Now, that’s something I could get behind. I could care less what the called themselves. Y’know they’re gonna bust out all the oldies, but the new material changes everything.
Even more than that, between Paul & Tommy, I think there’s real potential for a fantastic album. & I would love to hear it.
Curious about everyone’s opinion in regards to a Mats reunion. & Let’s hear a little noise regarding a Paul & Tommy record.
Side Note: Lately whenever there are rumors of a Mats reunion, the Pixies are inevitably mentioned. I just watched “Loud, Quiet, Loud” & the Pixies are the most un-fun band in the world. Sesh, what’s the fucking point?
