Re: Flesh and Blood delayed til 2019


Joel indicates there are 15 songs on the album written as follows:

"3-DC, 6-DC & me, 4-DC & Reb, 2 DC, Reb & me. So 8 for me total. I will say DC writes all the lyrics and melodies, so my contributions are only riffs/progressions, etc. Some songs I wrote all of the riffs and some, just one or 2 riffs."

Does anyone remember Slide It In? Due out in 1983 and then put back a year due to production issues with Eddie Kramer. They did however release Guilty of Love in 83 well ahead of the delayed album. I wonder if they will do the same with Shut Up and Kiss me and release the track and video ahead of the American Tour?

I would, to stir up interest, especially if it's any good. :-)

I would expect a proper statement from David by now so that's a bit strange although Joel has been very vocal and helpful about the issues.

Re: Flesh and Blood delayed til 2019


DC tweeted on the day of the announcement to keep an eye out for press releases- or words to that effect. But, yes, I'm surprised he's had nothing else to say, although Joel has been really forthcoming and positive in what he's been saying.

I guess you have to accept that the 'technical issues' Joel describes (first the board, then the computer) are possible when you're effectively recording the album on a DIY basis. I get that this is how DC likes to work and it's close to home etc- but the amount of time and effort that they've apparently put into this album is incredible (they've been working on this for a long time) and you begin to wonder whether it would have been easier and quicker just to use a proper studio/producer.

I'm sure Frontiers operates on a shoe string (small label, music business aint what it used to be) so DIY album production is probably more common than we think. Not sure Frontiers would pony up much for a proper studio/producer to work the album which would leave it to DC to pay the producer and studio time.

That can be enormously expensive nowadays.

Now ... technical issues. It seems like this particular album is cursed based on DC's illness and all these other issues. We shall see the state of David's voice on this tour. He hasn't toured for two years so it may be ok to start off with. Who knows?

it's clear that in some way the finished product just wasn't good enough.

Maybe if DC didn't tweet a torrent of garbage everyday they might have got it finished earlier

Re: Flesh and Blood delayed til 2019


Thanks for posting Snakehead- I've been hoping we'd hear something from DC. Losing 'pretty much all of the new album' is most definitely a catastrophe. I've seen people joke that perhaps someone accidentally 'pressed delete' and it kind of looks like that's possibly not a million miles away from the truth! I just can't even begin to imagine quite how this has been possible.

I just wonder where they go from here with the album though.That's a huge amount of time and money effectively down the drain. Do they start all over again at Hook City or would it be worth paying for a studio and letting someone else have responsibility for the technical side?

Let's face it, the band are out on tour soon for the next few months so they'll do well to have it out early next year if they've effectively got to start again.

Re:


Assuming they’re using pro-tools etc on a Mac or PC I cannot believe there isn’t RAID based redundancy and backups on the system they are using! If they shot a video then the mixed audio for that track must exist. I cannot believe they have lost everything, it makes no real sense.

agreed, I find it hard to believe this would be possible, but wonder what motive DC would have to misrepresent the situation.....
