Zin's Club

I have actually been thinking so from the beginning, though it's possible that he was promised backing by a party that pulled out last-minte.

Well, Zin's departure from Jupiter was obviously pretty rushed--they wouldn't have announced that single back in September if they'd known that he'd decide to leave two weeks later.

Even so, he had a full 6 months between his announcement and him actually leaving. Surely that's more than enough time to find band members and maybe start on recording a single/EP, especially when you're known as the face of a pretty prominent band in the VK scene. And that's only if it really was just a spur of the moment decision and he hadn't been thinking of splitting for months prior. We're now more than 5 months removed from his departure, and even after two live shows, he's still for all intents and purposes in the "proof of concept" stage. That is TERRIBLE.

Well to be fair, there is that one live single. But I agree with you. You'd think he'd at least be past the covers stage.
Occasionally, I write music reviews.

I'm talking a non-acoustic single/EP, with a full band rather than two guest musicians. As far as we know, it's still just him with those two doing acousitc stuff, and the next live single looks to be more of the same. If he's really looking to do some heavier stuff (at least in the rock catagory, if not full-on metal), then wouldn't it make much more sense to have that be our intro to his solo work? To let us know up front what direction he's really interested in pursuing. All these months later we still don't even have a clear idea of that.

Honestly, I doubt if he has a clear idea of it himself. The whole thing just reeks of an identity crisis.

It's really disappointing. Jupiter have clearly been putting that intervening time to good use, so why not him? He had to have given this some hard thought before taking the plunge. Maybe you're onto something about his support pulling out on him last-minute, because he's clearly doing little more than treading water now. He needs to put together a full backing band and get this stuff he has written properly recorded the way it's supposed to be. Hell, if he needs another guitarist, I'd be tempted to throw my hat in the ring for consideration.
