    I'm hoping the Fantastic Planet album shows do happen someday, because that would be an experience to say the least. I won't be making it to the LA shows so I'm hoping there's a bigger tour at some point but I'm just glad they reunited because I got into them so late that I thought they were a band I'd never get the chance to see. It'd be amazing to get new material from them now and see what they'd come up with after over 16 years, but at the same time I'm just as satisfied with them touring.

    Jesus Christ. So much for my hopes of finding one for a reasonable price. I can only hope it gets reissued at some point or a used copy pops up at the local record store.

    But yeah, the Magnified record does sound fine. Aside from the missing segue, there's really nothing "wrong" with it. The circumstances through which it came about just suck, especially presuming that the band didn't see a dime from this release.

    Edit: Just wanted to take a minute to appreciate how awesome this song/album is. The second I played a couple songs off of it for this girl I was talking to a while back and she said, "What the fuck? This is so bad," and THEN told me about how good dubstep is, I knew it wouldn't work.

    Bad news, QotSA is playing in Vegas the night of the Failure reunion so it doesn't look like Troy will be part of the live act, although it has been confirmed he has been writing with the band. It is so weird because it is the last night of a leg of the tour for Queens and a one off show for Failure, why not just have one of the shows the day before or after? Oh well, either way I really hope they end up doing an actual tour and come EAST

    I'm going through stuff looking for things to sell and stumbled on something interesting. I have this cardboard box with a black frog silhouette on it. It says "Dissect This" on it, and contains a cassette tape with selections from Magnified. Seems like a neat little promo item. There's still a shipping label with Slash Records' return address on it.

    Anybody know if it's worth anything?

    I'm currently saving to see them 10 times on a hopeful tour and $150 mega deluxe version of their hopeful new album otherwise I'd be glad to take that off your hands! I'm sure you could fetch a bit for it on ebay, I've never seen that item before. Would you be willing to post a photo of it?

    Sorry they're rotated weird.

    If you can't read it, it's 4 tracks - Frogs, Moth, Undone and Magnified. The other side of the tape is totally blank, no label on it or writing of any kind.

    Looks pretty cool, thanks for the photos. Not sure what something like that could go for, tbh. Maybe ebay list it and post a link on the failure tribute page on facebook?

    So I'm here in the venue and the merch available are shirts and posters with the guy with the gun from Fantastic Planet album cover.

    The exclusive vinyl is also available.

    Would try and grab a picture when I can.


    And no opening band tonight.

    Okay technically one can't buy the vinyl as you need to have a specific ticket to do so.

    Anyway the show was great. Lots of Fantastic Planet material but equally balanced out by the first two albums.

    Sorry no set list from me, I couldn't remember them all. Troy missing did have some effect on the live show as both Greg and Ken had to constantly pause between songs to switch instruments and tune them. Oh for you guitar tone crazies, they both were using Fractals. And they played an hour and a half so I got my money's worth.


    Overall it was a great show. Can't wait to see them again in May with A Perfect Circle.

    HEY! SOMEONE POST THE SETLIST!

    Wow............mind blown and I wasn't even at the show. Sounds like theyre a ways off from releasing a new record from the sound of the interview. Wonder if theyll end up doing a tour before that would happen.

    Sunn Model 12 Amps. I was mesmerized by them during the show. I saw the Sunn logo but had no idea if the cabinets were real or props until I just did an image search. They fit the feel of the band perfectly. Very Kubrickian.

    The show was awesome. The band sounded great. I was hoping they'd play one of those new tunes, but I can't complain. They hit all the highlights and sounded great for a band playing its first gig in almost two decades.

    I liked the film clips before the show. It actually did help put the pieces together of their inspirations for the band.

    Cool, thanks for posting about those cabs! Never seen anything like that before in my life. What clipswere they playing before the show? I saw on youtube just a glimpse of the fantastic planet movie. Also, would someone be so kind as to pm/post a boot of the show if they come across one in decent quality?

    I believe these were the clips (not in order):
    Andrei Tarkovsky's "Solaris" and "The Sacrifice"
    Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey"
    The opening sequence of "The Spy Who Loved Me" spliced with parts of Failure's "Stuck On You" video
    A clip from "The Ren and Stimpy Show" were they are in space
    "Fantastic Planet"

    Before the clips started they had a short explantation stating that in lieu of an opening band they decided to share films that were an inspiration to the band.
