Life goes on……As it does…..
So……here’s the sitch. We were at a kind of stagnated point with the band at the end of 2014. Wizard Boots thrives on spontaneous chemistry and making unexpected things work when they shouldn’t work……and of course this is hard to maintain over long periods of time. Tony Aparicio has lasted longer than anyone else ever in the history of this band and he was the goddamn engine, so respect and love to him. At the end of last year I was feeling like we needed to rip it up & start again and likewise, The Aparicios were wanting to break away from Wizard Boots to work on their own project. This pair of folks….and Tony in particular…..have been irreplaceable parts of the ongoing story of Wizard Boots…….surely they will most likely be involved again at some point. We won’t speculate…..we’ll just see what happens. So…..we wish this lovely couple luck & prosperity on their excursion as we here at Wizard Boots HQ stay the course and continue work on the problematic new album. It’ll be done when it’s done. At the end of the day, I just want to be able to say we did it our own way and threw it up in the face of everything else nonsensical and commercial and bullshit in the music industry scam. You should never compete for anything when it comes to making music……..just prove yourself when you know you’re right………and then you’ll be ok.
