Wind-up?

Recommended Posts

Guest Jake Wifebeater

Just picked up a message on the Cryspace from someone claiming to be Joe Odber from Northsound. The message said that 2 Labour politicians are trying to get Wifebeater banned from playing live due to the lyrics and there's going to be something about it on the radio tomorrow. I'\d say this has to be a wind-up but you know how stupid some people can be so does anyone know anything about it?

Well, if it is true, they cant do that. Free speech, I think, but may be wrong (and I'm aware this country has no first amendment)

Also, how would labour politicians come across your music?

Chris Harvey maybe recommended them, but not to the desired effect.

I hope this is true, but not because I want wifebeater banned from playing live, quite the opposite. You's could ride the crest of a wave of infamy and notoriety, people could play your CD in rebellion like "Anarchy in the UK" never happened.

Any chance of a lyrical excerpt?

nah, buy the CD when it comes out. we'll probably get all 12 songs on a CD at some point as well so it wasn't a complete waste of time.

Jesus!

A small report just came on Northsound about this! Some stupid bint claimed "my understanding is that their music is not ironic."

Shame Wifebeater have split up - maybe you could have written a song about beating her up.

What a bunch of sad twats.

Wifebeater should reform and play some anti-Northsound gigs. And anti-women gigs or whatever.

Dedicate your band to a certain Northsound 1 DJ.

Good to know that with the economy in tatters, unemployment rocketing and Aberdeen's finances in the red to the tune of millions of pounds that the Labour Party is concentrating on the important issues of the day.

Shame it's over. Would have liked to check out the live show.

It's interesting to watch the reactions of certain people when presented with material out-with their own comfort zone. If there's no obvious message of condemnation they automatically assume the opposite, a good security blanket.

ANGER OVER ABERDEEN PUNK BAND

There are calls for an Aberdeen punk band to be banned from playing live. They're called Wifebeater and they have songs like "Take That and That" and "Where's my bleeping Tea." They're currently on tour around Scotland, and Labour politicians are urging councils to stop them performing.

Seconded. I'm loving the added stupidity of these clowns trying to ban a group that has already disbanded.

They'll be trying to ban The Beatles and T-Rex next.

He asked for his account to be deleted.

I'd imagine "they" finally caught up with him. He's probably being executed in Bolivia as we speak.

This whole episode just goes to show what a diverse range of idiots there are in the world.
