My Vitriol


#1522

so future of the left were setting them up the whole time? damn


#1523

We’ll see how this goes:


#1524

Cheers mate. Look forward to reading their response!


#1525

I know the author, I’ll ask


#1526

That is actually raw, disgusting, fucking reprehensible behaviour. Like a human ooze of shittiness percolating your way. I sort viewed all their fuck-ups and delusions as being cute foibles beforehand, but that’s pretty sinister, even if they are throwing around imaginary weight.


#1527

I’m pretty ignorant about technical matters but is that why it takes forever for the CD(-R) to actually start playing?


#1528

was this to Ryan or Tallah (music editor) or both (out of interest)?


#1529

I sent it to Tallah and the hello@ email (as they were the contact emails on their website!)


#1530

Ok, I’m guessing she hasn’t replied? I can message her if you like!


#1531

They’re probably pretty busy so leave it for now, but maybe message her this time tomorrow if we’ve not heard anything?


#1532

Might start charging this for my DiS Mixtapes


#1533

Just to say that I heard back from them and to the best of Tallah’s knowledge they’d not heard anything from the band or their management so I guess that’s good? She said she will check with the guy who writes the piece.


#1534

Ditto.


#1535

Ryan hasn’t had anything but I’ve linked him to @ma0sm’s post


#1536

Absolute scum down the line then: CDRs, threats of legal action against negative reviews, sockpuppets and fake managers. Incredible.


#1537

Any band that has a ‘legal team’, but no stand in bassist, proper drumkit and who thinks CD-Rs are acceptable for a professional release (took me 30 seconds to find a UK manufacturer like http://www.tradeduplication.com/cd/cd-jewel-case) has their priorities seriously screwed up.

I can only imagine after a long day serving writs to daft pseodonyms on internet message boards, the lawyer submitted payment for their time…only to be met with “INVOICING? WHAT’S INVOICING?”


#1538

“Sorry, we don’t accept payment in form of a blank 99p CD from Woolworths containing your signature on it.”


#1539

You can still buy the CD as a limited, numbered release

I wonder what number they’re on now?


#1540

Som is a nutjob, isn’t he?


#1541

Bit confused where is som?
