I read this as Morrossey stopping by his label’s office.

On the plus side, he doesn’t have that shitty ICP tattoo anymore.

Last year I was in a Guitar Center and Korn was there. I assume they work there now.

Ouch. Seems kind of unnecessary to not only quit Death Cab, but also announce out of the blue that he would never join the Darkness.

Arcade Fire are shit. Flume should stick to remixing decent artists like Rustie.

DJ sounds like a tool on twitter, but then again so does Kanye. I wouldn’t be surprised if he just starting to fuck up intentionally cause when I saw Kanye at roo this year Kanye was definitely calling the shots and fucking up the flow of is own show. He’d often let the crowd almost get built up then Kanye would tell the dj to awkwardly cut the music and he did this a lot. I expected rants, but he his rants were kind of disappointing cause it wasn’t just an awesomely ridiculously silly stream of consciousness mix of sense and nonsense, it was just kind of half-assed and filled with more dead space and silence then hilarious complaints

Hahaha, yeah right, there’s no way he could make this worse than it was when Arcade FIre played it. One of the worst bands in the world, pretentious shit for pretentious shits.

You’ve got to be kidding me. My girlfriend called me in from the other room because this was so ridiculously horrid. The misuse of percussion at the end is downright offensive. That’s not how you’re supposed to play a guiro unless you want to break it.

ATP is the rare gem of music festivals and I hope they don’t disappear. Having been to a number of them in New York and in the UK (full disclosure, I was once in a band signed to their record label and played a couple of those fests), and they were so much fun. You’re not outside in shitty weather amongst many many thousands of people, but in these kitschy old holiday camps and resorts which lend their own charm, and the bands are all staying there with you. It’s so communal, incredibly unique and quite memorable.
I hope they sort this stuff out. My own dealings with the people who run ATP were limited (I wasn’t the point person for that stuff) and I’ll leave everything else out (long story short, the band parted ways with the label), but they were nice people who really care about music and putting on festivals and remaining independent of corporate money.
This kind of thing seems not surprising given the current state of the world economy, but it’s a bummer. I hope they survive.
