If they can't play professionally as the Mars Volta what makes you think they play can as At the Drive In?

Definetely not for a while. The Mars Volta are at the height of their career and in the middle of another album.

I don't think they'll ever re-unite. Sparta and Mars Volta have gone in such completely opposite directions.

ATDI is better than both Mars Volta and Sparta. Mars Volta is way too pretentious to me.

Well, you don't have to like them. It's not like you're having fucking dinner with them. You're listening to the sounds they emit from their musical instruments.

Mars Volta>At The Drive-In>Sparta

Sparta are lame.
The Mars Volta are better then At The Drive-in because a)Cedrics voice is better, b)Omars guitar is better, c)They arent border-line emo, d)they have bass solos, e)they have bongo drum solos.
I hope At The Drive-in never reunite. Cedric and Omars time is better spent with the Mars Volta, rather then with those lame wads in Sparta.

Haha Tom, I like the Bongo drums pics.

Also, if At The Drive in reunited, I would probably go. However, I would much rather go to a Mars Volta show.
I would also rather stick forks in my ears than listen to Sparta.

Maybe it'll happen...
Cedric said this when asked about reuniting,

I don't know what to say about that really. We've been making amends with a lot of the members and having some really good talks with them. And we've been trying to get our financial business in order because a lot of people have been ripping off that band really badly...as far as the business side goes. I wouldn't mind it. Y'know, it might happen, we just have to iron out a lot of personal things. A lot of it we've dealt with already and I've apologised for a lot of things I've said and the way it ended...we'll see what happens.

You are mistaken. You're thinking of Jeremy Ward. He was the sound tech guy for Mars Volta.

QFT.

Everyone has their own opinions, but if you ever had the chance to have seen them live before the break-up, you would've realized what a lot of the somewhat newer cult fans did - that they can take the songs on their studio records and turn them into monsters live. The energy was astounding and their interaction with the audience was always a plus. The point is to judge them fully when you've experienced them in person. If this reunion ever happens, you should try it just once.

The funny thing about an ATDI reunion is that from what i've read Cedric and Omar seem like the most down for it, but Jim Ward is so focused on his other projects and moving deeper and deeper into country and folk music now that he really isn't interested at all and gets pissed off when interviewers ask him about it

I'm sure that now that Sparta is pretty much done the other guys would be happy to do it, but without Jim Ward I can't see it working. People don't give that guy much credit when they talk about ATDI, but he was a HUGE force on those records

He's such a fool about all of this, it's probably why that even worse new band of his, Sleepercar, isn't even mentioned on the At The Drive-In myspace. It's rather frustrating when only one of the members is needed, yet he holds off as if to just say nay to the fans. As if his new group's going to get anywhere. It's all about self-satisfaction with Ward. He's simply lost it.

I completely disagree about Sleepercar. i thought that record was absolutely stunning. his solo stuff is really good too

I got some good napping on listening to it, some of it was okay though. He's still got the artistry in him, but it's nothing compared to the live performances ATDI would put on.

it's definitely extremely different. i happen to really like alt-country, and Jim's very good at it. He's a good lyricist and storyteller, and there is some great playing on the album

it's not really comparable to ATDI, they're in totally different sonic worlds

Don't get me wrong though, I would go completely bonkers if I got to see ATDI live again

For some reason, I always thought Sparta would fit in with Coachella, and forgive but I can't recall if they played or not but I believe they did, yes? Nonetheless, I support them all, but the least he could do is take a break from Sleepercar since Omar seems more than willing to take one from the Mars Volta.

Where are you reading this?

Where are you reading this?

Okay, he doesn't necessarily put it that way, and since looking back, I acknowledge he sort of debunked it a bit, but concluded by stating this: “We’re both smart enough to never say never, because you just end up putting your foot in your mouth.” At some point, I feel they'll pull it together one more time, just for the fans. I doubt they'd make an album again, but lots changes once you've done a reunion tour so who knows. The Mars Volta are scheduled to play throughout Europe and Australia until the end of January, 2010, so after that, it's all up in the air with what could happen.

Sparta played Coachella in 2004 before Pixies. The crowd was dead. I even though their performance was weak.

They were good in a small club, though.

j was asking about where you heard that Omar seems more than willing to take a break from the Volta, PTA.

I guess you were just talking about the fact that way back when, Omar said maybe a reunion would be possible and that something like that would then require them to stop touring as the Mars Volta for awhile. You didn't mean that he's wanting to break up the Mars Volta. Right? 'Cause whether people dig 'em or not, it seems like Omar is committed to the Mars Volta for the long haul. (I say hooray, but some....don't...whatevs)

No, you read it right, and there's no way the Mars Volta is ending anytime soon, but at least Omar's openly said he's not ruling it out at some point, meaning he's open to put Mars Volta on the side, which Jim Ward seems unwilling to do given his dedication to continuing making his own music. I'll give him credit for not caring about money or fame - all of them. If they do it, it will be at the right moment and purely for the fans, which is another reason to like the guys that made up At The Drive-In.
