    Default At The Drive In Reunion?

    Are they even a Coachella band? How would that go over?

    Goddamn fuckin hell yes it would.

    But.. uggghh.. not going to happen.
    I think The Mars Volta have their heads too far up their asses to reunite At The Drive-In. (I like TMV, but.. come on.)

    I was just looking for a video to post...
    Here's one:



    They... kinda... suck ... live.. though.
    Much like TMV.

    Why can't they just calm down a little bit and do it right?

    Cedric has stated that a reunion wouldn't be out of the question.

    this is from 2-22-2008
    RF.net: Obviously you guys have strayed further and further away from your origin in At The Drive-In, but seeing how so many seminal bands seem to be reforming these days we'd just like to check if you've ever considered doing an At The Drive-In reunion tour or something like that?

    Cedric: Erhm.. As fucked up as it sounds - Because this band only operates with a lot of money behind it, I would only do it for the money. Simply because I knew I could spend the money I'd earn with At The Drive-In on bigger and more elaborate backdrops or being able to record more stuff. Putting more money where money needs to be put, not spending it greedily on ourselves but spending it on making The Mars Volta go around, because that's one of the biggest obstacles this band has to climb, that it takes so much money to make it work. If we did do it, Omar and I would need our own bus and we would unfortunately need a certain amount of money to do it.
    http://www.rockfreaks.net/index.php?...erviews&id=150

    not out of the question, but lots of money would be involved.

    also this is from Geek magazine recently

    Geek: There’s a lot of pressure on you and Omar to reunite At The Drive-In. Do you grow frustrated with that, or do you feel honored?

    Cedric: I can’t really say I feel honored. It’s great to have the attention, but I really feel that was a band that pulled the wool over a lot of people’s eyes. We got credit for a sound that we were pretty much the 20th generation of. I would have no problem with reuniting and doing a show personally just because I would honestly do it for the money. If I got money from it I could put it back into The Mars Volta. I could get better production without the use of the label. How could that benefit TMV or me artistically? It wouldn’t be about the performance or the nostalgia. To me, it would just be getting into bed with someone who wanted to lend me money, pretty much. I’m not interested in the music really and all the kids who are really into that band, if they would just do the math, they would realize that people like Drive Like Jehu, The Jesus Lizard and even Fugazi, who everyone does know, did it first and they did it better.

    ANYTHING that would be put an end to Mars Volta. ATDI! Let's make it happen.

    a reunion show of ATDI would probably only make TMV bigger, at least money and production wise.

    I think that if there ever was a reunion it would be pretty shitty and lame. He said he would only do it for the money so they wouldnt be into it.

    I am against ATDI reunion now, simply for the fact that it would prolong the Mars Volta as a band....that being said...fucking ATDI owe me a show since they broke up a few weeks before I was supposed to see them in Las Vegas

    I would gladly stab out my own eyes if I could see At the Drive-In just one more time.

    Ok, maybe not.. but I did have the extreme pleasure of seeing them live twice, and if they ever do a reunion show, I will be in the front row.

    Fugazi reunion at Coachella would never happen. They might reunite, but not at Coachella. They've never charged over $15 for any show of theirs, and they're not about to start.

    But as for an ATDI reunion, I say FUCK YEAH!!!

    I doubt they'd ever reform. I know when Rage reunited it was a big deal, but I just don't think the whole controversy between Cedric and Omar and Jim will ever be put to rest.
