I just found this press release waiting patiently in my in-box, and although I usually don’t just quote press releases, this certainly seemed newsworthy. So, here it is:
“Apr. 25, 2012 — Meet Palms, a newly formed Los Angeles based quartet featuring three former members of ISIS (Aaron Harris, Clifford Meyer and Jeff Caxide) with Deftones’ vocalist Chino Moreno.
‘Clifford, Jeff and I started Palms a little over a year ago out of a desire to continue making music together after ISIS ended,” explained Harris. “Chino joined shortly after and our sound took shape from there. We’ve worked really hard on this first release and are excited for people to hear it. It’s nice to be back behind the drum kit, and with this line up.”
“Being a huge ISIS fan I’ve always dug the moods these dudes convey with their sound,” added Moreno. “I am excited to combine my sense of creativity with theirs, and to have fun doing so.”
Palms’ debut album will be issued by ISIS’ former label, Ipecac Recordings, and is slated for a 2012 release with a release date to be announced soon. The album was recorded and mixed by Harris, and produced by Palms.
Palms is Jeff Caxide (bass/keyboards), Aaron Harris (drums), Clifford Meyer (guitar/keyboards) and Chino Moreno (vocals).”
I haven’t heard any music yet, nor seen any info about the musical direction of this new band, but given the names associated with the project, it’s bound to be interesting. We’ll keep you posted when we find out more.
This is either a really bad April fools joke, or they just named their band after every junior high nerd’s girlfriend.
Huh. I guess people started naming their daughters after tropical trees a lot more often since I was a kid.
I’m talking about manual appreciation of the bone flute, and you know it.
Is there anything better than taking a good, solid dump and then jerking off?
Answer: yes, doing both at the same time with a good friend name Mr. Daniels.
Is that even possible?
I don’t know that it’d be easy, and you certainly wouldn’t be able to enjoy the wonderful peeing-while-pooping maneuver, but you’d definitely be able to get a few good pumps in.
Might not want to take it all the way though…you’d end up with fun juice in your eye or on you knees.
You have reached new heights of disgustingness. Bravo!!
Is disgustingness a word? Disgustingism? Disgustavomitousness?
You flatter me, good sire!
(That’s right, not “sir” but “sire.” Because I’m gonna use you to fertilize mares.)
One would like to add that ending up with teh fun juice in one’s eyes or knees is
less likely while using a squat toilet – which are the norm in one’s country.
One would like to add that one has been able to accomplish the said feat while taking a dump only twice in one’s lifetime, having tried about a dozen times.
This is why the NCS comments are renowned throughout metal blogdom. We can have an innocuous little news post about Isis members and Chuck Moreno getting together to make a record, and in no time at all the comments are about the best toilets to use for pumping the cum gun while taking a dump.
I didn’t think about squat toilets….
Those motherfuckers freak me out because I always expect my wallet to fall in the toilet right after I get done taking a dump….but now that you mention it, it does seem much easier to play the one-handed slip’n’slide while plopping a big, brown stinker with a squat toilet.
Maybe I’ll try it in the park next week….
Also, his name is Mr. Daniel. Common mistake.
FUCK! Does this mean I lose my alcoholic license???
Actually I think getting it right would be a point against you.
That is a pretty stupid name. I’ve been on about stupid band names for the past few days, though, so I won’t get any further into that.
Anyway, yeah, normally a press release isn’t worth simply quoting. But this IS news. All you have to do is put Chino in front of Isis, and you’d have a fantastically great band. I assume they will change things a bit more than that, but they wouldn’t have to.
Also, the part about it being issued on Ipecac Recordings is giving one a good feeling. [It should, right? O_O]
as an isis fan and a fan of music in general. i hope its a really bad joke.
No, the really bad jokes are the ones in the comment threads above yours.
