Interpol

Hey gang,

We'd like to take a moment to introduce you to our new editions:
Two fresh faces who will be joining us live on our upcoming tours.

On Bass: Dave Pajo

Pajo has a vast body of work. He was the guitarist for Slint. He has recorded as Papa M and Ariel M. And he has worked with Tortoise, Will Oldham, Zwan, and numerous other artists. So, you know....do the math.

On Keys and Vox: Brandon Curtis

Curtis is a member of the Secret Machines. Enough said.

We are very excited and honored to be working with such talented individuals.

Come and see why.

Interpol

Enough said?

Dave Pajo, the new Carlos D, was also recently a member of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Interpol recently cancelled most of their upcoming tour dates.

Papa M is playing ATP New York in September.

"guess they didnt do many english classes at nyu."

I guess CUNY didn't help you much, either.


As Steve Martin once said "Some people have a way with words. Other people...er...not have way."

I guess when the auditions for Enuff Z Nuff didnt work out, so they got a haircut and this is the result.

i got a 720 on my SAT verbal and went to a top 20 university. there is a difference between using internet shorthand in an internet message board and spelling a word completely wrong on a blogpost/press release that will be reprinted on hundreds of websites.

New Edition joined Interpol?

can't wait to hear Bell, Biv and DeVote sing along with Paul Banks for the "PDA"/"Poison" medley!

I don't even think the Interpol website covers Interpol as much as Brooklynvegan does.

Impressive. And your use of a lowercase "i" is a nice touch of humility, too

Posted by Anonymous | June 7, 2010 2:15 PM

I got a 720 on my SATs too, but I sure as shit ain't bragging about it. It's downright embarrassing.

Posted by Anonymous | June 7, 2010 2:15 PM

Well now you are bragging 2:15!

Posted by Anonymous | June 7, 2010 2:40 PM

it's kewl to know that smart ppl who got 720 on their sat verbal read bv.

Posted by Anonymous | June 7, 2010 2:57 PM

Was that 720 Oral or verbal?

Posted by Anonymous | June 7, 2010 3:59 PM

It was anal.

Posted by Anonymous | June 7, 2010 4:09 PM

I'm willing to forgive a lot so long as they don't pull another "No I in Threesome".

They're on musical probation, basically, far as I'm concerned. One more bad album and it's back on the bus to proverbial Ohio with them.

Posted by Anonymous | June 7, 2010 4:39 PM

i prefer oral over anal

Posted by Anonymous | June 7, 2010 4:45 PM

I take my teeth out when i take the oral exam.

The anal exam is just too damn painful.

Interpol's first NYC show will be at The Creators Project NYC Event on June 26th.

Here are the details:

The Creators Project event series—a roving global celebration—launches this summer on June 26, when The Creators rolls into 80,000-square-feet of display and performance space honeycombed throughout the legendary Milk Studios in New York’s Meatpacking District.

The event is going to be a groundbreaking combination of interactive art and installations, panels, workshops, screenings, and live performances. As much as The Creators Project is a digital archive of our digital world, it is also a testament to the enduring appeal of the Real. Many of the artists within the program explore the way that digitally manipulated images, sounds, and motions converge in real time, in real spaces.

As we’ve noted, there will be performances and/or installations from a large portion of our stable of Creators, including Interpol, Nick Zinner, Takeshi Murata (the piece above is from his brilliant Melter series!) Spike Jonze, Mira Calix, Radical Friend, MOS Architect, The Rapture, N.A.S.A, Mark Essen, United Visual Artist, Gang Gang Dance, Neon Indian, Muti Randolph, and tons more. (The full itinerary will be rolled out in this space in the weeks to come.)

So, please, go to the website now to make sure you’ll be joining us on June 26 at the Milk Studios in Manhattan.

Free Interpol show at the Waterfront?

Posted by Regular reader | June 7, 2010 5:59 PM

Interpol on the Waterfront would be great, just not free. Too many people would show up.

@red totally heart u :D

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
