The Mars Volta

Recommended Posts

marsvolta_scabdates188x175.jpg

 

Maybe I'm just out of the loop but I stumbled upon The Mars Volta's new live album last night by complete accident. It's rather impressive how their live shows consist of lots and lots of impromptu jamming. Really makes it more than just a standard live album.

 

Kind of makes me regret not going to see them when they played here with System of a Down. But then I remember that tickets were $60. And they were playing with System of a Down.

 

Anyway you can check the whole album out on streaming media here.

man, at the drive in was an awesome band...

 

You ever seen the dvd? Rediculous. A lot of their early shows in el paso. I would have loved to have

seen them live. A friend and I have had many discussions about the transition from ATDI and The Volta.

I sorta feel like eventually had ATDI stayed together they would have started doing the same stuff as the

Volta, but by just ending the band and starting anew with the different concept they just skipped right to

this point in time without all the bullshit fame in between...

they ended atdi because of musical differences that they just couldnt deal with anymore. thats why some formed sparta and some went to volta.

Yet another band that I feel are great fucking musicians who make amazing music, but for the most part I can't fucking stand listening to them.

I could be way off, but I think the "new tracks" are all improv...

Dazzle- I'm not sure, I'll ask my boy and get back with you

 

Boxcars- I know they broke up for musical differences, but shit nearly all the members of ATDI are in Volta.

Albeit the drummer does the effects now right? and they picked up like two new people while dropping like

one?

 

Thats why I feel that the Volta is the next progression of what ATDI was doing. You can here so much of the

weird noise breaks that Volta has in a lot of the funky later songs that ATDI started doing. Either way, they

both rock, and Sparta blows... end of story...

sparta doesn't blow

if you asked me, I'd say sparta sound a lot closer to

the 'traditional' atdi sound (like one armed scissor)

than TMV do

 

 

sparta went the sort of emo route though.
