Cool. but i'd rather listen to old at the drive in tracks. my bother knew Cedric and Ced gave him some old 45 vinyl At the Drive in Lps way back in the day. I didn't mind Mars Volta but it's a lot of noise really.

They had a few good songs but, when you compare how 'processed' their whole image was to what they were making, it just seems too fake for my taste. When they decided that everyone in the band had to start using 3 names is about the time that they lost my interest. And not to mention it was like some of the members almost seemed ashamed to be tied to El Paso in any way. I know I heard a lot bitching about that. But then again, it is El Paso. Who knows? Maybe that was the secret to escape El Paso.

Think think the guys from ATDI should do a song or two. Just to give everybody what they are hungry for.

The only reason I'm not crazy about the Mars Volta is because its just a bunch of noise to me. I thought At the drive in and Sparta were much better bands. But thats just me..I understand that band need to experiment but I think the Mars Volta went a littel over board. I only like one song from them..
dont care

the reason I don't care for the cedric and omar is becuase they support a women beater and deadbeat dad!

Hmmm, hey Pedro, could you please define "never did anything and never went anywhere"? How about winning a Grammy Award in 2009, in the "Best Hard Rock Performance" category for "Wax Simulacra." TMV was also named rock music's "Best Prog-Rock Band" of 2008 by Rolling Stone magazine.

Too many haters in El Paso which creates a major image problem.

I myself perfer Sparta.
