But you’ve got to remember that Simon did a lot of ambient-experimental stuff in the years preceding Shpongle, and so I’m definitely certain that the demise of Shpongle would result in the genesis of a NEW, FRESH project, maybe working with someone new.
Did you know, a lot of the songs from the ill-fated Metal Sharon project were dub style?
How cool would it have been if he were able to complete that?
Shpongle has been done, I want Simon to stretch his legs a bit.
I understand…but a full album is quite different than a single track collaboration.
I think it needs much more effort and time and chemistry etc to create a full album project that’s why i mentioned Shpongle & Younger Brother only.
But Metal Sharon was supposed to be a full album too; they’ve got more than one track under their belt, it’s just they havn’t been released yet.
Your comments about effort, time, and chemistry are correct though, and thats exactly why I’m worried about Shpongle 4. The first three albums had at least three years between each of them, and it was as if each of the albums was ‘meant’ to be…
Meanwhile, Younger Brother isn’t going to be released until the middle of the year and the Twisted crew are predicting Shpongle 4 to be finished by the end of the year! And the only reason it’s being made is because “Simon and Raja have a bunch of spare time due to the live show cancellation”
It just doesn’t sound as poetic as it should be, I mean are their hearts really in it this time?
