Tool singer Maynard James Keenan rarely opens up in interviews, but he's spoken to MTV News and Rolling Stone about his long-in-the-works project, Pucifer. Die-hard fans of Keenan's work with Tool and A Perfect Circle will be surprised to hear that his new music is way funkier than the heavy prog-Rock they're used to.

"This is absolutely just put-it-on-and-move-your-butt and get-completely-out-of-your-head music," Keenan explained to MTV. "This is purely body candy. It's meant to make you feel like I feel when I hear James Brown, when I hear some old Jackson 5 or Aretha [Franklin]. It's just that good feeling music that makes you feel good. There's no math. Nothing wrong with math, but sometimes, it can be exhausting to be that forced, that focused. I'm a big King Crimson fan, but only when I have the energy to be. Sometimes I just want to hear Gnarls Barkley."

The debut album from Pucifer will be out some time in October, and finds Keenan collaborating with everyone from Primus drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander to actress Milla Jovovich. Rolling Stone reports that the new tunes include a cover of the Circle Jerks song "World Up My Ass" and a redone version of "Country Boner," a song originally written by Tool guitarist Adam Jones and Rage's Tom Morello for their old band Electric Sheep. Other new songs include "Queen B" and "Dojo."

He also hopes to release the Pucifer material in a variety of mediums, not just the traditional album format. After an initial full CD release to show people "this is what we sound like, this is what I sound like, I'm working with different people," he'd like to "abandon the album format; just come out with two tracks every three months or every five months." Keenan continued, "Because this is not only a musician collaboration, but a visual- artist collaboration as well, I want to put out limited runs of CD singles, with specific artwork by specific artists, and a full-length CD as a collection, but I'm not married to that idea."

Continuing with the visual theme, Keenan even envisions some outside-the-box thinking on Pucifer merchandise. In terms of band t-shirts and clothing, "I want to do small runs of stuff 50, 100, 150 at the most and move on to another thing. That'll make it more special, more unique. I don't want to end up with a warehouse of stuff no one wants. If I make a thing and there's 100 of them, and nobody wants them, then I'm only stuck with 100 things, and now I've got some Christmas gifts to unload on my friends."

discuss please. i am totally interested. just heard about it, myabe old, new, i dont know.

Puscifer has been around for at least 5-7 years. When he and Adam were on Mr. Show, they appeared as Puscifer. It was also on the Underworld soundtrack.

it seems to be more of a collaboration than a band. he says. i read the release date is set for oct. 30th or so.

Puscifer is Maynard's band, but since he only plays piano it somewhat requires that he bring in other folks to fill out the rest of the instruments, which is just as well anyway. The "Puscifer" that consisted of Adam and Maynard on the first episode of Mr. Show doesn't bear any resemblance to this one I don't believe, but I'm not sure whether the name was Maynard's or the work of Bob Odenkirk/David Cross. It is hardly move your ass music, however.

Somehow, he will fucking perform at Coach 08.

The Mr. Show Puscifer is a small picture of the Puscifer of today, of course things progress. Ever hear "ass kicking fat kid"? And the name is definitely Maynards. I see this as his attempt to pull off a Trent/NIN type thing.

I have a feeling he wont be touring Puscifer, but I sure hope I'm wrong.

M Sparks...WTF?

Anyways, I love Puscifer. I am really excited for this album. Just in case anyone doesnt know, the new album is titled "V is for Vagina." Maynard is a crazy bastard. Anyone heard his song "Bring Me The Disco King" w/ David Bowie? Great tune.
I am still pulling for a Vegoose addition. But thats not likely to happen. I would LOVE to see Puscifer at Coachella 08 though.

V is for Vagina. hehehe.

RotationSlimWang

Maynard has a fucking great line when they're interviewing the fake Puscifer about Ronnie Dobbs in that first episode. Something like:

"Yeah, of course he's guilty. But he knows it. We're guilty and we don't even know it, so who's really in jail, huh?"

He doesn't get blurred anymore, and it's a radio show not a TV show, primarily. Sadly, the TV show did a really shitty job of representing him, all the funny stuff is audio. But, you know, fuck yourself.

I think you'll find Buck Angel's "juggs" are actually quite small.

It depends on what you mean.

If you mean a hip-hop project, then no.

If you mean something completely different than anything he has ever done. You decide for yourself... (https://store.puscifer.com/frameset.html)

"This is purely body candy. It's meant to make you feel like I feel when I hear James Brown, when I hear some old Jackson 5 or Aretha [Franklin]

I saddens me that they had to put [Franklin]. Are there actually people in the world who don't know who "Aretha" is? don't you kids know anything? sheesh.

I am halfway through. I like it, but one main thing is bothering... Maynard is not using his entire vocal range.

The album is worth buying just for the packaging. Its hilarious.

After a few listens, I have decided I really like the album. I wasnt sure at first. But now I am. I like original version of the Undertaker much better though. My favorite songs are Indigo Children and Sour Grapes. I <3 Sour Grapes.

I have also decided Puscifer must be at Coachella next year.

Has anyone found the dvd for Queen B? It came out Tuesday and I can't find it anywhere. I know he said it was limited but, damn. The kid at Best Buy said that they only got two copies to sell, now it is on backorder and he doesn't think they will get more any time soon.
