    sure why not, was a pretty big fan of theirs back in high school. i remember reading something that they were open to the fact of getting back together for the money, so omar and cedric could pump more money into mars volta.

    Sure. Why not. Hopefully it would be better than the last Mars Volta gig I saw.

    yes yes and yes.

    i really don't care for At The Drive In but it seems more likely that it will happen.

    Jim Ward was at a recent TMV show in El Paso about a month or so ago i guess setting things right with the guys.

    another thing to consider is that Omar is starting up his new production company so i am sure they could use the money from something like this.

    it seems more and more likey that this could happen.

    Jim Ward never hated the Mars Volta guys that left. Paul clearly didn't hate them, since he joined TMV eventually. Tony, if I remember right hate the TMV's excessive drug usage and blamed the demise on ATDI for Cedric and Omar being addicts. Cedric blamed himself because he was too "above" ATDI. Cedric also said that he'd totally reunite for a meaningless going-through-the-motions ATDI for a boatload of cash.

    but I wonder if they just did it for cash...would they have the same passion that they did on their records?

    FIXED

    and the answer to my own self-posed question is a "probably yes." Omar & Cedric have stated, post-breakup, that the reason for their craziness on stage with ATDI was a) boredom, and b) the style of music called for it, whereas, the Volta call for a little craziness on stage but much more concentration. So: the energy is still in them, and quite likely, they'd be just as bored.

    But my personal feelings? Even though they're one of my all-time favorite bands (granted, so are the Volta), I would be pretty iffy about the idea, I certainly could not trust that it would be awesome no matter what. When it comes down to it, Omar, Cedric, and now even Jim (Sleepercar anyone?) are completely different people musically. So if anything, it would just be flat out awkward. They broke up the band when they were in their mid-twenties because they said playing ATDI made them feel like they were 17. Now? They are well into their 30s!

    Want some immediate proof of how awkward of a show it would be, right off the bat? Just compare the vocals on the first track off of In/Casino/Out with the first track off of The Bedlam in Goliath. COMPLETELY different person!

    based on their last shows before they broke up, they avoided most In/Casino/Out tracks besides Napoleon Solo and Lopsided. Occasionally, they'd bust out Chanbara, but that was about it.

    TMV played the KROQ Weenie Roast "for the cash" and just ad libbed for 40-minutes with more than one typewriter solo.

    This seems like a matter of inevitability rather than when/if.

    TMV is in decline, and Cedric and Omar will do anything to support their drug habits, er, creative endeavors.

    I saw TMV in 05 and 06... and they were fuckin amazing each time. They pretty much sucked at Sasquatch this year though.
