Robs - Blog from L.A.


Blog from L.A.

Sitting in the Hyatt on Sunset Blvd with a broken foot bored out of my fucking mind, and I've just realized the Australian / NZ tour is over.

Thanks to everyone who came out - we had a great time, and the crowds at our Perth & Sydney shows were some of our best yet. Apologies to folks in Auckland again for the shorter-than-average set - we were having some serious technical issues...we'll make it up to you next time.

Next stop - Coachella Festival!!! Our first US appearance...you ain't ready :)

- rob s

(P.S. for all the folks asking us why we didn't play "Tarantula" live - did you see the mighty 6"3 Black Tarantula or Tenor Fly on stage?)

If u knew the shit that goes down regarding the pendulum live situation! God its amazing. 9 computers worth. Enter shikari use 1. Puts it into perspective if you want to compare the shit that goes down behind the two bands live shows.

The synths and programming behind the songs is immense and well you cant appreciate it until you see for real what gos on behind the scenes.

Tbh rob is probs one of the best musicians ive ever met.
I mean if u check out pendulums background and what they have done / can do. That gives u your answers.

Ive been lucky to meet the kind of people i have in life. Ive met a lot of musicians that i dont like to rave about but by FAR. I can confirm that Pendulum i see as the hardest working musicians that i have ever met. FACT.

Ah they know the truth just dont want it to come out. ;). Wanted to keep the mighty pendulum to themselves in the underground drum and bass purest world ;).

:lol:

This forum is now open so i do not want any bitching going down regarding our situation with DOA.

Ive been in the studio today for endless stressful hours and i now want some sleep.

Well I'd see Pendulum as a band who either do things to their best ability... or not at all

Rob broke his foot by falling down some stairs whilst drunk. Or so the interview says...

and i believe Ben broke his ankle by jumping off a speaker stack.. But i could be wrong...

I get news as it's posted on here.. I read and watch most of the interviews... I know Rob broke his foot falling down some steps.. But as for Ben. I think he either stage dived.. Or he did his trademark "jump with knees tucked into chest" from a speaker stack and broke it.
