John Frusciante unofficial – Invisible Movement

Sargent House founder sheds some light on upcoming Omar/John collab

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and John FruscianteSargent House management company/record label owner, Cathy Pellow, was responding to questions on the label's formspring.me and, amongst other things that might be more interesting to people who follow artists signed to this label; she shed some light on something we could be interested in:

A while back you might have mentioned something about an Omar/John Frusciante collab coming soon, is that true or am I just doing some wishful thinking?
Omar said that would be something we would be putting out sooner or later, but honestly I don't know what stage it's at. he's got the Trio album coming next and then some other really big surprises so don't know about the JF album status or when it will arrive.

You have responded to the question regarding Omar/John collab, but just to make it clear: whenever it's published, would that be an album/EP or just a song or two on an Omar recording? Thank you. ^_^
I don't have the information to tell you definitively on how many tracks or what format it would be released at this time.

Since JF is out of the Peppers (getting out of Warner/RC, I suppose), is there any chance of his next solo albuns being released by SH? (by likeapisces)
Not that I'm aware of.

So, I assume that it's the right time to say that a bunch of people emailed this website during the second half of the summer to say that the guys were recording. Now, knowing how often it takes ages for something to come out, don't jump around on your tiptoes. At this point, knowing that it exists is a blessing already!

  • This is fantastic news, I absolutely love the two songs they put out together before (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rw6Flzw8h6E), and can't wait for more. John and Omar are two of my favorite guitarists, hearing them on each other's records is like a dream come true every time.

      I totally and whole heartedly agree with you. Omar is just a brilliant composer, the stuff he comes up with is just genius, and we all know how unbelievable John Frusciante is. I have their two tracks to, they're like my most listened to tracks on last.fm lol. I can't wait. Cheers to Iva for yet again, making my day. (Making my day should totally be Iva's job description, she does it so often :P)

      Thanks Iva! <3

    hey iva shed some light on Josh being the newest Chili Pepper!

      Errr....you're being disrespectful by sending an off topic comment instead of an email and I am asking you not to do that ever again. Also, when talking to people you don't know, regardless of who they are, you might not want to talk to them as if you spend your whole life sheering the sheep with them.

      Who am I to get involved with things that shouldn't be my concern? =/ Based on others' examples (not only in this niche), most people are missing the point of what an owner of an unofficial site should do. Invisible Movement won't follow anything RHCP-related unless John is mentioned (which I can imagine will be the case in many interviews, retrospectives etc...). If people like him only for RHCP, it's their own loss, lack of an "open mind" - or, simply, a matter of taste that might cause them to drift away from here if they're not interested in the other things he does.

    Wow an Omar and John album? This is brilliant! I've always wondered what it would be like them two writing together, since usually they're playing something that the other has written! But there's one thing it says there 'getting out of Warner/RC I suppose', why would him leaving the Chilis mean that he would leave Record Collection? I'm probably just reading that wrong though, since The Empyrean came out after he left the Chili Peppers, and I don't see what the Chilis have to do with Record Collection

      I think Record Collection used to be associated with Warners but isn't anymore.
