"SOUNDGARDEN Live Album Planned; New Music 'Very Likely', Says Guitarist KIM THAYIL - Dec. 2, 2010

Bookie of the Toronto, Ontario, Canada radio station CFNY-FM, broadcasting at 102.1 FM, recently conducted an interview with guitarist Kim Thayil of reunited grunge legends SOUNDGARDEN. (Check out the above Blabbermouth link to listen to the interview courtesy of JeffGarden.com).

Regarding SOUNDGARDEN's decision to reunite and the band's future plans, Thayil said, "We're doing little projects here and there. The guys have other commitments but this is the thing we're most excited about.

"I don't know at what point we could say we were back together — it was so gradual.

"The band were in talks about attending to our catalogue and merchandise, which had been neglected over the past decade. We wanted an e-commerce profile and we'd never maintained the website we had, and wanted to start a new one. We wanted to take advantage of the way the market had changed — iTunes, Facebook and so on, and put out the records we always promised we'd put out. That's what started the awareness of our legacy. From there it blossomed into the suggestion that we jam together, and perhaps play a live show.

"We had a live album in the can just waiting for someone to mix it. We wanted to do B-side albums and that might be two or three albums. We'll be doing other shows and working on releasing some albums from deeper in our catalog."

According to Thayil, it's unlikely that the resurrected SOUNDGARDEN won't wind up writing brand-new songs. He said, "When we get together to rehearse, it's natural for us, being guys who have a rapport, to start jamming and inventing. We've come up with instrumental, and certainly on occasion, lyrical ideas.

"I'm not confirming anything, but it's impossible for us to get in a room and not come up with ideas. It's very likely in the future, perhaps sooner than later, we'll get together and de-emphasise the rehearsing part and emphasise the jamming part." "
