Title: Zane Low on 4/22 BBC Radio 1:listening to new music by "four fantastic dudes"
Post by: fresno dave on April 23, 2013, 01:08:44 PM
 Zane Low on  4/22 BBC Radio 1 Sarah Cox show,audio, 1:39ff:


"I'm off to listen to some new music by one of the world's biggest rock bands, who I'm not allowed to mention, but are BACK, so I'm going to hear music by them for the first time in some time. So I'm excited about that, so... If I'm allowed to talk about it tonight, I will probably talk about it from about 7, but I need to double check with management that I'm allowed to even mention it. That's happening this afternoon, so I'm really excited to hear that, cos it's been a few years since we've heard from these four fantastic dudes... and it's exciting!"

Oh I've just realised who that Zane Lowe fella is.  He's that annoying p**** who thinks he's one of U2's mates, when in actuality he's a useful strategically place tool.  Well just wait till Bono & Co hear that he only described U2 as "One of the world's biggest rock bands"; he'll be lucky to get a seat right at the back of Wembley Stadium on the next U2 tour.

I'd settle for the trio to tour their last album, Collapse Into Now.  In arenas, of course.

don't know Zane, so please update. it's not too early i don't think for some initial reviews and the, perhaps, eventuality of leaks?
that said, i'm pretty sure this will be a highly calculated 'e' type release, ap, itunes etc.

"We went to listen to new music by arguably the biggest rock band in the world, cant even tell you who it is or what it is, cant even talk about it, not ready yet. All I can say is that it's amazing..(chatter)...We just did an interview with arguably the biggest band going around right now and can't even tell you who it is or when its going out or what's happening with it, cant talk about it !"

"...Everyone's just like, 'we'd love to talk to you, cant tell anybody about it ! We'd love you to hear the record but can't tell anybody about it yet!'

He seemed very frustrated he couldn't say anything about it, but the main pieces of new information we can take from this is if this is U2 which I would bet any money it is then they are now doing secret previews of the new record and interviews with the band as we speak !

..and I definitely think it is them due to the element of secrecy surrounding this project which is on a scale we haven't seen in some time from them, I think that they are willing to share what they have (which is pretty much the finished result) and get second opinions from (not surprisingly) radio dj's and the like. I think they are just holding back for a end of year release so it can fall in to their common schedule and I am willing to bet they this will be out by October.

I'm about 90% sure this is going to be the Kings of Leon considering they've been in the press recently about their new album which is set for a September release.

Also Adam seemed skeptical about an album release date in the interview he done a couple of weeks ago.

I think it's got to be U2, there is so much secrecy involved with these recordings. He is bat sh** crazy about the band. I've met him, he did voiceover on a tv programme I worked on last year, nice guy, good attitude. I can understand people don't like him but he loves U2, so he's fine in my book.

haha yes pretty much..
but positive is that if it is them, this means they are letting people within the music business listen to a somewhat 'complete' record and it cant mean too long before we here more from them.

..but I think there are even chances this could be Kings Of Leon because they said they finished recording there new album at the start of this month which wouldn't be completely bad news because I love there music.

I don't know if it makes them the "biggest band", but U2 are the biggest live band. 
If other bands could go out and break 360's attendance record, they would.

That was ages ago. I'm talking about now. No new music (for god knows how long), no live shows, no news, no nothing. They are NOT the biggest band in the world right NOW. Plus their relevancy (whatever that means) is apparently at an all time low.

hopefully he says something during this broadcast, but if he was allowed to say anything I'd imagine he would of said it at the very start of the show.

You can argue a lot about whether U2 are the biggest band in the world now. (I'd say not at the moment and probably not since 05/06)

But put it like this; if someone like Zane Lowe referred to them as the biggest band in the world, it wouldn't be particularly surprising. It's not even close to an obvious statement, but no-one's going to think "Oh HELL no" in the way that they might if he was referring to, say, Gorillaz.

There's a possibility he said something in the first 20 minutes when I wasn't listening...but I kind of doubt it...feel like it would have surfaced to this forum anyway by now.

Zane lives up to his surname. He won't be getting any favours from the 'four dudes' in future.

Now I have the Big Lebowsky in my head. Which member of U2 would be The Dude?

well he refers to them as 'one of the worlds biggest rock bands'
where as U2 usually comes under the category of 'one of the worlds biggest bands'
so I'm almost sure now after pondering on this that its Kings Of Leon.

So have we confirmed this isn't U2? Honestly I think they strongly fit the description this guy detailed, however I do realize other bands more or less fit the criteria too. Too soon to be optimistic?

Doubt it's U2. They are not the biggest band in the world. Not sure who it is.


actually, yes, they are. Metallica's the only band that's even in their league.

Well, Muse and Coldplay are getting close.

Wait.... Coldplay has four members...

Not really.

The world's biggest rock band has been the same band since about 1987.

Looks like it's happening... here's a blurb from a Globe and Mail interview with Lanois...

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/awards-and-festivals/gg-winner-daniel-lanois-talks-u2-peter-gabriel-and-hockey/article12285375/#dashboard/follows/

And then the connection with Eno led to your work with U2.

Yes. Actually, Bono just came to my place in L.A. a few weeks ago. He let me hear the new record that they’re doing with Danger Mouse. It sounded amazing. Very, very big and powerful-sounding. Some of it was adventurous. There were shades of Achtung Baby. A couple of songs I was familiar with, because we worked on them before but had not completed them. Now they’re back on the burner. Bono is very excited, and he’s singing beautifully. He makes me jealous. Those barrel-chested Irish tenors.
