That is awful.

How much musical/writing input did the two members who left have?

Zero.

The new album was written solely by Kele and Russell, and was recorded only by Kele, Russell, and various session drummers and bassists.

Matt and Gordy had absolutely nothing to do with any of the new album.


@Cobbler Yeah, to me it basically sounds just like Kele's solo stuff.

No I meant like how much input did they have on past Bloc Party records, because that song sucks and I'm wondering how crucial the gone members were to making them good.

Oh, sorry.

I think it was similar to how U2 does it: I think Kele came in with the basic strong structure, riff, melody, whatever, and then all 4 of them would finish writing the song together. I'm pretty sure Matt was in charge of his drum parts and Gordy was in charge of his bass parts/keyboards/etc.

But, from everything I've read or gleaned over the years, I felt like they said the albums were always a full band product by the 4 of them. Every one of their album to date have the writing credits listed as all songs written and composed by Bloc Party.

The new songs I heard live weren't bad. Based on reactions, though, I'm not ready to hear this new one, I don't think.

You would've been even more in love, GAF, if you had been with me when I saw them in Pomona at the Glass House. That was their first show with the new lineup and she drummed the entire show wearing a tank top.

Yeah . . . all the straight guys went crazy.

My excitement is very much tempered, but I hope to be pleasantly surprised.
