I really don't like RHCP either but Yorke+Flea is a good duo judging from the live clips I've seen.

Now Flea can use his talent in actual good songs.

Maybe Thom put together a band that included people he likes to hang out with and could go on the road with. Flea always seemed like a soulful guy to me, regardless of RHCP's cheesiness (I always thought they were fun, but I also understand why people hate them).

Flea is hugely talented regardless of what you think of the RHCP.

Hardly anyone here used to like Red Hot Chili Peppers, I remember they were one of the most universally disliked groups in Bang and Clatter just a few years ago. I felt like I was far more apologetic of them than most everyone else was. What happened?

I concur. I find them insufferably boring.

I liked their 80's stuff as fun music and BSSM was also a fun album, but once One Hot Minute came around, that was it. I just find them so incredibly boring and saccharine ever since that album.

I will agree he is talented, but I don't think everyone (and by "everyone", I mean everyone I've talked to about it) would be making such a fuss over Atoms For Peace's basslines if FLEA! weren't the one playing them. I think the hype of his name is lending much more weight to the "awesomeness" of the basslines, than the actual basslines deserve.

Oh, without a doubt. And they haven't been all that spectacular anyway. But I've always loved most of the Chili's work and I'm super duper excited to be following a band with the wacky dude from that band (who does a lot of extracurricular stuff that isn't so cringe-worthy) and Thom Yorke, the frontman from one of my favourite bands ever.

So you guys do realize that "punishing bassline" is a meme/quote from that highly aroused chick who premiered What The Eyeballs Did on XFM radio?

I did not realize that.

Do you realize we're floating in space?

I am aware of this fact, but it directly contradicts my day-to-day experience of reality.

When I saw Thom and these characters live a while back, at least a third of the people I heard talking at the show were there to see Flea and not Thom.

Is it bad that I can't discern flea's contribution and that the tracks I've heard sound just like Radiohead?

B-side Radiohead at that. By no means bad, not at all, and I rather enjoy Default in particular. The Eraser was better.

Default is amazing. I loved it from the moment I heard it. No so sure about the other two tracks. Eyeballs is, IMO, rightfully a B-side. Judge is good, great rythm, but not really great. Still, can't wait for the album. And yes, I'd prefer a Radiohead tour again as well, though I'd probably go if Thom, Flea and Co. went on tour. It's almost impossible anyway that they'd be showing up in my corner of the world

Yeah. B-side material if that.
