And then, suddenly, they were gone. No shows, no updates, no interviews — nothing. They didn't even issue the typical and ominous "we're taking a break" memo. The line had simply gone dead. Then, in earlythe band released a cryptic statement through their record label expressing their desire to "bow out Stella Maris - Moby - Destroyed the mass appeal madness"; declaring they wanted nothing to do with the "glossy culture" anymore.
And that was it — again. Not another word for the rest of the year. Truth be told, no one really knew what to think. Something was definitely up — but they weren't talking — so, inevitably, our imagination ran wild. They didn't have any songs for us to hear just yet, but they had a title: "Do Not Resuscitate". Would this be their last goodbye — their final album? Was the band telling us that they would deny CPR if they stopped breathing or their heart stopped beating?
What did it mean? The band had fired their publicist, their manager and just A Danger To Myself And Others - MPB* - Do Not Resuscitate everyone else who had been working for them and for the next two years they continued to randomly transmit cryptic missives regarding how they felt about the state of underground music coupled with the progress of the new record, potential release dates, song titles, their "new direction" and so on.
It was the first time in a long time we thought there may be a light at the end of the labyrinth after all. Their contemporaries were falling apart or breaking up, no one was buying CDs anymore and the club where the band had played its first show CBGB was now a high-end fashion boutique. Suffice to say, in the Internet age, it wasn't very hard for fans to work themselves into a lather conjuring up the band's whereabouts or future plans. The less we knew, the more rumors grew. But as soon as their fans were about to exhale, the web site Es Cando - Machucambos* - El Canto Libre this way for the next year Duke Ellington - Duke Ellingtons My People without any further updates or press releases — and we were back where we started: wondering.
Was this what the band had so proudly alluded to years prior when they said they were "bowing out of the mass appeal madness" and wanted nothing to do with the "glossy culture" anymore? Maybe this was all part of some brilliant plan to throw people off their trail? Either way, they sure were confusing us — but we were hooked and waiting to see what would happen next.
What's that saying about how you won't know what you had until it's gone? We're patient because we know they're real. We wait because we know they'll deliver… eventually.
