Oh, and this'll probably mean nothing to most people, and most of the rest'll probably hate them, but I just got back from seeing Carter USM's 10 year reunion gig at Brixton Academy. loving hell that was good.

What the gently caress, they're still together? What an awesome rock and roll band.

To note, I only have heard 1992: The Love Album but it is awesome.

They did sell some of their bigger hits to commercials and use the money to backstab the focus of the commercials (GM), which in my mind is pretty sweet. I still don't get why they went with dance music though, that completely baffles me.

I keep thinking about getting a conflict tattoo, but with all the drama since the no power/carlo records and the music videos (which I have to say were pretty wild) I kinda don't want to. I saw them live a few years back and they still rock.

I don't mind Chumba's new stuff since it's not like their ideology has changed or anything (plus I don't mind dance music )

What's this about Conflict drama, though?

EDIT: Also so Henry Rollins talk tonight. He's a really funny and amiable dude, but he should stay away from preaching because his anecdotes are a lot better.

Matt, what is the general opinion over in England (especially I guess amongst the '77 crowd) of American hardcore from the 80s? I ask because when I saw Henry Rollins talk he was talking about his experience lead singing for the Ruts farewell show and he thought it seemed that they thought he couldn't pull it off initially (obviously changed their minds afterwards).

Against Me! are playing here in the UK in April, they are headling the Corp in Sheffield, which I've been told is a pretty small venue. Now, do I get tickets or not? Are they likely to play alot of New Wave crap, or will they stick to the older material?

When I saw them in November 2005, all they played was their new crap and a couple songs off Axl Rose. Absolutely nothing before then and I imagine it's only gotten worse with them having a new album out.

Interesting response, one I didn't anticipate. Statutory rape is morally higher ground than pedophilia? The latter includes in many states people in longstanding relationships not even engaging in actual sex when only a few years apart.

No, he's about as un-PC as they come, in a really innocent way. I love him to death. When I first met him he played my house with Get It Away and kept asking me where he can find a project girl, because he has problems getting girlfriends and he heard project girls are easy. He didn't know it referred to the projects aka public housing/HUD/section 8 etc. I love him, but he hangs out with some real retards (incl. me). He isn't aware of the problem with his roadie though.

Their roadie is wanted in Indiana.

Well, it looks like Against Me! continues to lose whatever shred of credibility they had, making Plan-It-X stop issuing their Crimes as Forgiven By EP so they can reissue it themselves, except it doesn't have Burn on it. Here's what Chris from PIX has to say:

quote:

hey.
okay, so you know that against me asked me to stop repressing the crime EP right? i would just like to clear up a few things. they never order me to stop repressing it. there was no threat of legal action or anything. they just asked me to stop...

they gave me 3 reasons.

1. they never knew the status of the release, if it was in print or not etc?
2. they didn't like the packaging.
3. they thought it cost too much in the no idea catalog.

i wrote back and addressed these three issues:

1. it has been in print since day one. it has never gone out of print. everytime i repressed it i sent them 200 more free copies. they have my email and phone number and could check the "status" at anytime.

i said i would be more than glad to give them reports on this.

2. i allow bands to have any type of packaging they want. the first pressing was in a case. when the 2nd pressing came up i was in gainesville and i ask tom if there was anything he wanted to change, we agreed that the sleeve/bag package would be better since it would make more room in the van.

i said we could change it back to anything they want

3. the no idea CD-EP is cheaper in the no idea catalog because no idea released it. it makes sense, i sell the crime ep to them for 3.50. since PIX sells all it's cds for 5 or 3.50 wholesale or 2.50 to bands, i can't afford to have lower prices for EPs. normal record labels can do that. no idea makes enough money off of their full length CDs to sell eps cheap and to sell LPs. that plan doesn't work for PIX. cheap cds limit what we can do.

there was nothing i could do about this.

so i told them that i really wanted to continue to release the CD. and i told them that it meant a lot to me to have it on plan-it-x and that i really loved the songs (i do). i told them that i really did not want to quit repressing it. i told them i did not agree with their complaints and that i would also do anything i could to make them happy and keep the release. i also told them the decision is theirs since i DO NOT own the music. they do.

i didn't get a response for a few months, then jordan wrote me and told me that they had repressed it already.

needless to say this hurts my feelings.
this is the first time a band has ever done anything like this to me.

i love the record and the music and it means a lot to me.

i don't really understand the argument that they just really want to release their own records and be DIY since they have a lot of releases on other labels and don't seem to be taking any of them back.

if they did take back all their releases and start only releasing their own records i would have great respect for them. but in this case it's hard not to take it personally. i think they dislike the rift that has grown between them and the DIY punks and somehow they think i am a part of it.

i don't really understand. i am hurt.

it took me a while to think of what to say about this.
i didn't want to say anything really but at every show kids ask me.
i hear kids saying dumb stuff about against me, taking be to court, or ordering me to stop repressing the CD.

it wasn't like that. but it was sad regardless.

i love the crime ep and i love the people in against me. let that be known.

this is not a complaint, this is just information.

i hope no one from against me takes it the wrong way.

i just wanted to explain this deal to the kids.

i still have about 300 crime eps and will sell them until they run out. the new pressing on sabot does not have the song: BURN BURN BURN. so if you want that song, get the CD before it's gone. i'm sending 200 to no idea soon, and will sell the last 100 myself.

please stop asking me questions about agianst me.
they (by their choice) are no longer a part of the PIX family.

i miss them.

-chris

I know it's kind of like a broken record now, but they were one of the first bands I got into whenever they were dropping releases like Crimes and their Vivada Vis demo tape so I still keep up with whatever news is surrounding them.
