Omar Rodriguez-Lopez mentions Speed Dealer Moms in an interview

The Mars Volta's Omar Rodriguez-Lopez is surely busy these days - releasing album after album, about to premier his film (that John is the executive producer of) and being interviewed pretty often.

In his most recent interview for the Argentinian magazine Rockzone, dated 15th January 2010, he's asked about working with John and he happens to spill out some words on what obviously are Speed Dealer Moms. It's not new compared to what we were told when Bang Fest was canceled, the duo's still working on their music and it is not known when we'll have an opportunity to hear them. But don't forget, this all comes from a third party.

Once again participating on the album is John Frusciante, who's another very prolific musician -except when he's with Red Hot Chili Peppers- and puts out albums when we least expect it. Do you feel he's something like a soulmate?
Yes, just like Cedric. We have a very strong connection, we're cut from the same piece of fabric. We have the same concepts of what music is and why we create music. He, like me, makes music because he loves the process and has much more music than he's ever published. He's now in a time where he's not putting out anything, but he's working a lot with a Canadian guy from the electronic music scene. They've done something like 80 songs, but he's not publishing anything because he thinks it's just creation time. Just creating and not thinking at all about business. That's really good from him.

    Thanks for post that =)

    "he's not publishing anything because he thinks it's just creation time. JUST CREATING AND NOT THINKING AT ALL ABOUT BUSINESS . "
    I love Frusciante's attitude...

      but it's so bad for the fans... 😉

      Honestly, he should release some more stuff, more frequently - it's almost sadistic of him keeping everyhing back. If he doesn't want to think about business - just put some free samples on some website. We've heard nothing from Speed Dealer Moms yet!

      I miss 2004 so much.
      Omar should be an idol for John - in terms of releasing records. 😉

      (I know, this is pure egoism speaking out of me, but hey!)

        1) Nobody ever said they aren't going to release anything.
        2) Nobody ever said they aren't going to put anything somewhere online. If things are moving slowly, that doesn't mean they're not destined to happen.
        3) Nobody ever said that there won't be another 2004.

        So, why worry?

        This one is from The Simpsons, "The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show" episode, when everyone was disappointed by the new character.

        Bart: Hey, I know it wasn't great, but what right do you have to complain?
        Comic Book Guy: As a loyal viewer, I feel they owe me.
        Bart: What? They're giving you thousands of hours of entertainment for free. What could they possibly owe you? I mean, if anything, you owe them!
        Comic Book Guy: Worst episode ever.

    I was hoping Speed Dealer Moms were not dead, I really want to hear something from them! Isn't it strange though that John who is 'just creating an not thinking at all about business' (which I am not at all doubting by the way, I totally believe John doesn't think about business when creating music) is the executive producer of Omar's film, don't they deal with the business side of things? Didn't think that was his sort of thing really...

    yaaaayyy the page is BACK. I've missed it so much : )

  • Banesword

    Sounds like he is doing precisely what he wants.

  • I think it's awesome, but wouldn't it be more awesome if he released the stuff, or part of it, online and free, like the Internet album? Pick a selection of their favourites and put them free. If they are not planning of ever release it commercially, they can still share it.

  • Mr. :-/

    Please John release some of your great music to us 😀

    Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙁

  • Femme Fatale

    hopefully in time john will share the music maybe in the form of a internet album, but i'd still be willing to pay for an physical version

  • Manu1236

    Fuck, I didn't know that here are a magazine called rockzone (that may be because I didnt read magazines), I'm going to buy it.
