El-P says new Cannibal Ox record unlikely

    (Via: Done Waiting)
    Okay, so this isn’t exactly a surprise, but it certainly is tough to hear from someone who isn’t just some jackass on an Internet message board who says he knows someone who knows someone who plays Madden with Vast Aire’s publicist.
    You can read the full interview with El-P here, but let us just rip the band-aid off for you:
    Interviewer: Is there a new Can Ox album coming out any time soon?
    El-P: I really doubt it.
    Interviewer: Really?
    El-P: The fact of the matter is that everyone has been crossing their fingers, including Def Jux, hoping that Cannibal Ox would get their shit together as a group, even to the point where I resigned them. I really hoped and prayed that they would get their shit together, thought they were at a certain juncture in time. At this point I can”’t pretend anymore or cover for those guys. They haven”’t been together for a long time, but they tried to get it back together again, but it”’s proving to be an impossible task.
    Interviewer: That breaks my heart.
    El-P: You”’re not the only one buddy.
