Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan revealed that the word ‘cock’ was his favorite moment from the original UK version of The Office in a new Kerrang interview.
When you listened to comedy records when you were younger, did you consider that more rebellious than music?
“Yes. If you have any Irish-Italian blood in you, you definitely have a contrarian wiring. Comedy was always about the things you weren’t supposed to say, like in Fawlty Towers with the line, ‘Don’t mention the war,’ and of course he fucking mentions the war. The whole foundation of the script for Curb Your Enthusiasm is about what Larry David is not supposed to say. In The Office [UK] it’s about saying the thing you’re not supposed to say even after saying the thing you’re not supposed to.”
What’s your favourite moment from The Office?
“It’s a single word… (Recreates the moment the character Tim calls Gareth’s phone while sitting next to him) ‘Cock!’”
Tool guitarist Adam Jones has confirmed that he is back in Los Angeles with stunning photos of the sky, so it appears that Tool have finally completed work on their new album, as they have returned home after doing mastering work in Portland, Maine with Bob Ludwig.
Unless Ludwig still has additional work to do on his own, it appears that after 13 years, the new Tool album is finally done. It is expected to be released in mid-May to mid-July.
Tool also announced new 2019 spring North American tour dates recently.
