    Fred Durst appears to be hungry like the wolf. Though busy redoing Limp Bizkit's next album with new guitarist Mike Smith, he's been finding time to devote to a solo side project called Pacifica.

    A debut album from Pacifica — an '80s, new wave-influenced batch of songs that Durst has described as reminiscent of Duran Duran — is still in its "very early stages," according to an Interscope Records spokesperson.

    "It's very '80s," Durst told Rolling Stone. "I don't want to say it sounds like Howard Jones or A Flock of Seagulls. Maybe it sounds more like Duran Duran or Soft Cell — this will be a more polished, modern takeoff of those things." The album is not currently on Interscope's release schedule.

    The recording of the Pacifica album is not expected to hamper sessions for the next Bizkit album, whose latest title is Panty Sniffer, according to a recent online post from Durst (see "Revamped Limp Bizkit Album Now Due In September"). The album's release was pushed back from May until September to allow the group to record new songs with Smith, which has also affected Bizkit's summer tour schedule, according to a band spokesperson.

    To the man who shoots Fred Durst I will bring cartons of cigarettes in prison.



    EDIT: I had one too many to's.
     
  3. At first I thought that "Panty Sniffer" would be a great title for a Spinal Tap album, but then it occured to me that they are much more clever than that.

    Is this guy (Durst) for real? I'm sure he's been keeping all his primo tunes for his solo album.:rolleyes:

    the reason everyone has something against limp bizkit it durst himself. A solo album is just wrong. The dudes from Bizkit should make an album without him, then I bet they'd be more popular than ever.

    sort of a new album similar to the old-school days of Bizkit, but with a replacement for Fred might be nice.

    :meh: I think my first post got deleted. I don't know why it would have though. Maybe it just didn't go through.

    Boo on durst I say. Limp bizkit definately is not one of my favorite groups, but I think they would be much better off without good ol' Fred. This new solo album will probably make many people vomit in the cd store as they browse through the racks of new releases...:D
     
  10. He should change the band name to Durstran Durtsran.


    Is it just me, of does the world feel like it's spinning backwards?

    Soft Cell and Duran Duran, huh? $10 says his "original" new wave songs include the titles "Tainted Glove" and "Thirsty like the Wolf".

    Don't be shocked if you hear your riffs on panty sniffer or "I heart the 80s "

    Hopefully there will be enough room in the used/cutout CD racks in stores across America.

    Ha! I actually was running the auditions in New Orleans, and I figured after I heard 100 really crappy guitar players, I'd give it a shot. My little brother would have killed me if I didn't at least try, so I did it for him. I played all my Crimson/Meshuggah inspired stuff, so I doubt they will be able to rip me off.

    My buddy, on the other hand, played some riffs in 4/4, one of which you can hear on the new Limp song on the website.:spit:
