However these 3 very talented guys and 1 very talented gal are surely not going to disappear off the radar for long, especially given Chloe's statement that they'll be back in one form or another. So given what we know of them, where do you think we can expect their work to pop up?
Jon is the ultimate studio junkie and production perfectionist. Dismayed at PRR's slow output? Blame him. But he also made it rockin' awesome. Jon's immediate future could lie in mixing and producing. He and Tom Bellamy teamed up again recently to produce a Christmas album which Anders' wife Soose sings on: www.vineyardrecords.co.uk/vruk-shop/christmas-vineyard-cd
Hmmm, Gaudete. Familiar much?
Chloe I don't know so much... will she do more design stuff, or more music stuff? Opinions please!
As Paul already posted about, his drumming skillz are in high demand. I guess he knows where he's heading!
Jamie's passion is thrashing a guitar to bits. No doubt he'll find like-minded people with which to do this.
What do you guys think the ex-PRR members are going to do? What do you wish they'd do (besides getting back together, obv)?
Paul is with Scroobius doing live stuff, and apparently he has a new band called Red Kite. They have one song out, and it gives me an Arcade Fire vibe. redkite.bandcamp.com
A friend from another forum over heard Chloe tell someone (maybe Ryan) about a new project that sounded a little like PRR - although he didn't hear the answer to "what album?"
I think Jamie just mentioned something on twitter about studio... I hope is doing more than just remixes though.
As for Jon, he's such a talented writer, I can't see him giving up writing so quickly (maybe he'll take a break?). Either way I think that he would keep any new projects under wraps until a release was close..

Chloe's defs writing and recording stuff, I believe she's doing some of it solo, some with tom and some with other people. Jamie's got new band projects in the works. Jon is going to be writing/remixing but maily producing and teaching and other things involving a reasonable rate of pay. Paul is super drummer who everyone wants in their band.But there's really very little use in speculating further as I don't think even they know many more details than that. Let's sit back and wait for some news...it's not like we haven't had loads of practices with that as prr fans!!!
I do wonder if they'd ever entertain a reunion album, or getting back into in ten years or so.
It is going to be exciting listening to all the new projects which come from the PRR camp, but I'd have to say it was probably Jon's production and writing which most drew me to the band, so I'm most keen to hear what he comes up with.
If there's been any silver lining to all this, it's that I've really invested a lot of time and cash in discovering new music, as kind of compensation for my favorite band no longer existing.
Erm by moving this to a new section of the forum, I wonder if the old sections will ever get used now...
Well, we discussed it and we decided it would be good to have a dedicated board for this, so it's clear the forum is still relevant now the band have parted ways. We also thought it'd be nice to have discussion about all the new projects that (hopefully) will come from the 4 of them together.
Realistically, the other sections probably won't be used that much anymore, that's just how it goes but people may still want to reminisce/talk about the albums, or old live shows etc at some point.
Did I hear Jamie tell someone he planned to do something with Tim from A Genuine Freakshow?
Yeah, that's something I heard too, though I don't know how far along that is at this stage!
I heard that Tim, Simon and Jack from AGF may all be involved with Jamie doing something together in the future. Given that PRR are no more, this is obviously pretty much the next best news I could possibly have heard to cheer me up at the final gig - that would be a supergroup indeed! (Albeit no bassist?) Really, REALLY hope there's something in this.
As an aside, and for what it's worth, I think Jack AGF is possibly my favourite drummer that I've ever seen play. I'm no musician so I can't tell you whether he's a genius from a technical standpoint or not, but I've certainly thought "Wow, these drums are fucking amazing!" during some of Jack's playing more than any other drummer I've seen. And I like 65daysofstatic and The Mars Volta, who both have some crazy drumming going on on their records. Top lad.
I like what AGF have going on, but can't quite get into it. Something along those lines with "bigger riffs" (which Jamie seems to enjoy) could be interesting.
I get what you're saying, despite clearly clicking with AGF more than you have. I think they're at their best when they're in their post-rock mode rather than some of their more ambient moments. Take a look at the live versions of Luckmore Drive (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDwLZIOCL_A) and She's Got A Shooter (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRRgHP6j4j8) to see them at their more muscular best. So yeah, if a project had Tim, Simon, Jack and Jamie involved it might be a bit more riff-tastic than AGF's standard sound, and I agree that that could be a really exciting prospect.
