New interview. Bad news for those holding out hope for a Quicksand reunion http://www.brooklynvegan.com/archives/2 ... w_w_4.html
I would imagine that would also hold a ton of sentimental value as well. So we have seen the reformation of Gorilla Biscuits and Rival Schools, but what about Quicksand?
Walter: We actually reunited pretty soon after we had broken up and it didn't really work. I think that thing is best left in its own little world. Well, you know I'm doing my solo stuff... I have my acoustic guitar. Other than the fact that I love playing with other musicians, Rival Schools gives me that chance to be in a rock band... so I don't need to be in Quicksand.
Why doesn't Walter pull an Axl, hire a bunch of touring dudes, and go on the road and play Quicksand's greatest hits under the Quicksand name? It's great he's starting Rival Schools back up but you tell me which band will draw bigger crowds? Walter + other dudes as Quicksand would draw hundreds to the Newport I would imagine. As Rival Schools, they'll be able to play the Basement.
