My thoughts exactly. The fact that they knocked this out so fast gives me the tiniest bit of hope. If the songs are terrible, at least they won't sound overthought and overproduced like the TbK/Oceania/Monuments songs.

I guess it just makes me seriously question how much James was actually involved in writing this album.

I doubt James was involved much other than "hey show up and play some parts over these songs I wrote" like always. James looked pretty miserable in that one studio pic. He's probably already regretting being involved after the reunion became DOA because of the D'arcy drama.

Starz on 45!
Which could mean a new Teargarden by Kaleidoscoop - aera...

So not that it matters (and it doesn't, but me riffing on an idea is not easy evidence that a conceptual fissure does), but I've noticed an interesting trend these days where I will say something and the thing that is said becomes the foundational basis for some untruth. (I mean, I have a checkmark!) So, I mentioned here recently that I have 26 tracks in various stages of completion (I will go one further and say the number is closer to 45, actually). From that number (the aforementioned 26) a monster 'tis spawned, and suddenly I am making things I never intimated. The good news is there is energy there in the lie, a curiousity, or even the gross set-up for hoped-for failure (and take that on the face of it, as much media apparatus exists to build, fete, or destroy). The not-so-good news is that you (and I will be personal in saying you) have to decide from what is said here with pace and revelation (I mean, that's show biz, for we sit through a long movie to get us to a strong finish and if lucky, a sequel) and this kind of ****-echo that says, 'no, the truth is what we wish/decide/deduce it to be' (that just happens to be tied to clicks). So the point of this jag? My clicks are pretty good, I think, and ultimately more fun. Last point: when I throw shade, you'll know. Everything else is said in jest or with love.

does that even mean anything besides that the album will have less than 26 tracks? i'm moderately well read and cannot fucking understand at least half of what he says. reading that shit is physically painful, but it is kind of funny how he thinks people making assumptions is a trend.

-People take things that I say and make running assumptions about them without confirmation
-I said 26 tracks but I never said I was making a double album, also it's closer to 45 by the way
-This instagram is the only place you'll find the truth, media outlets reporting on what's going on with us are running their versions of the truth or assumed half-truths for clickbait purposes
-I'm not insulting anyone. If I was you'd know because I'd say so.

So maybe all the bass player business is innocuous?

I still say he's recording a solo album that just happens to have James, Jimmy and Jeff on it. This isn't a reunion, he wasn't mocking D'Arcy, and now he's just fucking with people who believe clickbait news.

For some reason I just feel bad for Billy now

He had a rough childhood, did lots of drugs, has mental health struggles. I think he's trying, he's just in over his head now, trying to keep up with social media and netphoria and everything

I thought the same, and still kind of do, but the photoshoot threw me a little. If it's a solo album, why does he need a "band" shot?

He did say solo album followed by band with Jeff, followed by Pumpkins album. So far we've got one of those three.

i'm only critical of what he willingly puts in the public eye. that's fair game when someone is a celebrity.

Zwan live sounded like a total mess with three guitars. I've always said they didn't need to add Paz. Should have stayed a four piece with Pajo on bass but leave it to bobo to fuck a good thing up.

Because it's a photoshoot for Billy's solo album that features Jimmy, James and Jeff on it.
