Thank you everyone who voted for The Russian Futurists on Steve Lamacq’s BBC6 show! “Paul Simon” totally destroyed the other 2 songs. Hollaaaaaaaa!
Okay, seriously, just when we are about to unvail our first official Cadence Weapon video for “Black Hand”, some genius “Redsatyr” on YouTube drops this masterpiece on us of “30 Seconds”…….
And while we’re on the YouTube (best thing ever) topic here is a shot of Islands, Cadence Weapon and Busdriver doing “Where There’s A Will There’s A Whalebone” live at The Opera House last month in Toronto!
Furthermore, there are some new Cadence Weapon and Russian Futurists Canadian dates in the events section, we’ve got a big fat update coming to you soon regarding the release of The Russian Futurists “Me, Myself & Rye” in UK/Europe August 7 and some deadly live dates over there, lots more Cadence Weapon news and all that! We are happy to report that progress on The Cansecos sophomore album “Chinese Democracy” is steady and positive. Bill “Axel” Halliday and Gareth “Slash” Jones reportedly have over 6,000 hours of material recorded for the record. Due on Upper Class Recordings sometime this or next year, the reported length of “Chinese Democracy” or “Juices!” as it’s code name has been (to keep it under wraps) ((code name has since been changed to “Jussi” to shout out to the Edmonton Oilers)), is to be between 1 and 72 discs long. Paul “Duff” Prince, the band’s infamous bass player recently commented on the rumour that Halliday and Jones were spending the next 5 months an ocean apart (Halliday in Dublin, Jones in Toronto) to let the in-studio intensity simmer down, “Man, we’re cool, we’re all talking, who’s Dublin? You better come out to my fucking prog night at The Embassy in Kensington Market, that’s all I know”
