Ugh ugh ugh, I should avoid reading the Interpol tag quite so much.
Some idiot on there saying “sack the keyboard player and get Carlos back” just made me do a RRRRRRRRRAGE, like, are you fucking kidding me? Seriously. Sack Brandon, the immensely talented musician they all get along with, and respect and enjoy spending time with, and in fact, sometimes seem to squabble over who gets to hang out with him that day (I’m not even kidding).
And bring back that one guy that quit, who every single one of them has unapologetically deemed “an asshole”?
(I mean, yes, I do selfishly often wish that Interpol didn’t dominate *quite* so much of Brandon’s time and attention because I would like to hear that Cosmicide record some day, and indeed, the last Secret Machines album. But for real? The band are pretty resolute that they’re experiencing the best personal chemistry they’ve had in a decade, and enjoying themselves again, and you think they should give that up because … ???)
