Yesterday on The Mars Volta fan forum The Comatorium, what many speculated to be a leaked track from the band’s upcoming 6th album slipped out into the open.
While it’s not technically a Mars Volta song, 1S2PFB (“one in the stink, two in the pink, flicking the bean”) was written and recorded by its core members for a fake band in a film, with drums by Deantoni Parks or Dave Elitch (we think). Either way, the track is missing Rodríguez-López’ frantic Latin mathrock and Cedric’s trademark wail, so scrutinizing speculation is sure to follow.
After much debate over the MP3’s origin, weirdo & Volta vocalist Cedric Bixler Zavala took to Facebook to shed some light:
“ok here is the real dirt you little doe eyed queefs …. the song which is titled 1S2PFB(THANK U THANK U) is at least 2 years old….and…..press roll please….is not a volta song. now wait before you start losing your little blood filled boners…it is from a movie directed by mark rufallo. i think its called sympathy for delicious…it might have changed so don’t get your adult swim panties all in a knot CULOtorium….it is d on drums and omar bass and guitar(look out son!)…. we were asked by mark to write something for it…or rather omar to write something for it….juliette lewis is the bass player in the movie version of the band…. orlando bloom is the singer…so the version you hear with vocals may not even be my vocals because what i wrote for orlando to sing was actually duplicated by him.”
Here’s a little bonus video from Volta’s psychotically deranged, fantastically fucked frontman:
There’s a whole world of this on Cedric’s YouTube account.
