With hints of a Bloc Party hiatus being dropped multiple times over the past few months, Scottish electro DJ & producer Hudson Mohawke has let the cat out of the bag concerning a Kele Okereke solo LP.
During an interview with BBC Radio, Mohawke claimed "It hasn’t been finalised yet, but I’m doing a bit of stuff for Kele from Bloc Party’s solo album. He’s doing a record with one of the guys from Spank Rock.”
As expected, this is likely to suggest that the upcoming solo album will have an electro/dancey style similar to Bloc Party's most recent releases.
Aww Davey you stole mah news.
could be awful or brilliant.
Depends how you liked Intimacy, I'm guessing it'll be more of the same.
yeah, i'm thinking it'll be a lot like Intimacy. in other words, shitty.
Digging: Queens of the Stone Age - ...Like Clockwork
i would hope not exACTLY the same because then it would kinda say, "look how redundant the rest of the band were on our last record."
in a couple of years kele will be testing out songs with john frusciante in front of small audiences
I hate bloc party, particually intimacy, so I'll stay well clear of this.
And yeah, hard to see this not being at least very simialr to 'Intimacy'.
Digging: Conditions - Full of War
i really liked intimacy for the most part i gotta admit, honestly though who couldnt see this coming eventually. Fingers crossed he delivers the goods
Intimacy's actually my favorite Bloc Party album, so I'll probably like this.
I still thnk these guys are/were one of the best bands this decade
Oh cool, im seriously intrigued by the Spank Rock reference...
Digging: The Dillinger Escape Plan - One of Us Is the Killer
self titled was amazing, then got worse after every album. still curious about this one.
I loved Intimacy so I'm not fussed if he continues down the electronica path.
Thought Kele was a girl's name
Band never did much for me, so maybe his solo will be better than Bloc Party but I can't see it
...so maybe his solo will be better than Bloc Party...
i guarantee it won't be.
thats your opinion.
it could very well be the best thing hes ever written
Here's to hoping.
