Wow, we're on page 1000

 

Anyway, here's an interview with Guitar World where Tom proudly says he hasn't a clue what gear he uses anymore because computers do everything. 

to guitar world.

Fucking moron at times.

"But by the time I hand the music over to Ilan, fuck! Knowing him, it’s probably old Les Pauls and weird stuff – well, Les Pauls aren’t weird, but I just mean shit I don’t use. "

 

Please tell me this does not mean he gives the guy the tabs to his song and then they record, not him

It sounds like he writes some stuff and gives it to Ilan but it could be that Ilan does an alternative rhythm track, as most rhythm tracks are at the very least doubled if not like, quadrupled in some cases for different tones and such. 

Still doesn't sound encouraging though, Tom can't be assed to record his own guitar parts?

he also trotted out the old "Fugazi, Quicksand and CIV" influences line that he's been saying since press for BCR. when none of his shit sounds anything close to those bands.

also "New Order didn’t know what they were doing. If you listen to their songs, it’s like one finger on the keyboard at a time!" are you fucking kidding me tom? jesus. such a stupid thing to say.

Most of this interview made he sound like an idiot. Like seriously, considering how long he's been a musician, I'm baffled by half the dumb shit he said here.

not even close. you might not enjoy their music, but it's really stupid thing to say about their discography.

I think they're great! But they're great because they're unconventional and lack conventional music training.

Yikes - that’s mad. Hooky is one of the finest bassists of our times. Think I might swerve the interview

I’m kind of sick of Tom talking about marks cancer. He talks about it more than Mark does and it’s his fight. And he’s saying things that seemingly aren’t known yet, like the cancer is being eradicated from his body. A few months ago it doesn’t seem like Tom and Mark were still friends and now it’s a talking point for him every interview promoting his new album. Idk it’s starting to rub me the wrong way. You don’t see marks other friends doing this or even Travis.

Yeah I kinda get what you mean. At first it just seemed sweet and supportive but the overdoing of it feels very... PRish.

So we’ve heard clips of every song now. A fire in a nameless town and no more guns (discount American idiot Green Day) sound terrible so the only song left I haven’t heard I’m interested in is automatic. This will be my least favorite ava album, maybe it could be better than love 2. I like rebel girl, kiss and tell, timebomb, losing my mind, and automatic. The other five songs seems like Im going to be able to never care about hearing them again. And rebel girl and kiss and tell I still don’t even associate with the album so I feel like I only got three songs this year I actually like.

i don't think tom would stoop as low as using mark's cancer to promote the album. he repeats a lot of the things he says in every interview these days. he probably also knows that everyone is always happy to hear when mark is doing well or whether the two of them have talked recently. i don't know. just trying to give him the benefit of the doubt
