Interpol to carry on
Interpol "aren't afraid" to carry on as a band in the absence of bassist Carlos Dengler.
The 'Slow Hands' rockers - who announced the departure of the guitarist in May -will miss their former bandmate in terms of his creative talent, but think the remaining members will cope without him.
Speaking about Carlos' songwriting, drummer Sam Fogarino said: "He kind of guarded that territory fiercely. He felt like that was his baby, which was fine, because he's a really good arranger and really good with harmony. But it's kind of a stupid question for us to ask. Who's better?
"It's just a different take. Any four of us can get behind a keyboard and - not to dismiss his talent - come up with an interesting harmony or melody. I don't think we're afraid to work on music without him. But it's just so far away. Who knows how we'll feel in a year and a half or two years."
The 'C'mere' hitmakers - who recently announced their new tracks would be going back to the sound of debut album 'Turn on the Bright Lights' - admitted they will miss Carlos on an "emotional" level,
Sam continued to Spinner: "As to whether his talent will be missed, yeah, how can it not be? The band will just rely on other strengths in the future. We're far from even thinking about new music. Emotionally, it will be missed but pragmatically, no. We're all pretty capable musicians."Posted on 28 Jul 2010 07:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
