Apology To Daitro & Thursday
2009-10-26 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 76 Comments

Sputnikmusic would like to apologize unreservedly to the members of Daitro and Thursday for a breach of privacy that may have caused unintended offense to all parties.

Private e-mail correspondence between a member of French hardcore band Daitro and a Sputnikmusic staff member was inadvertently posted on the public forum, causing some friction between members of the French act and American counterparts Thursday.

We apologize for this breach of confidentiality and have taken measures to ensure it will not be repeated.

Daitro declined to comment directly, however they have kindly agreed to accept our apology.

thursday rep asked daitro to tour with thursday daitro said 'we'd rather not, thursday kinda sucks'. daitro's coments get leaked. geoff accuses daitro of being elitist posers.

the emails were in late July and no one significant saw it, but then some _____ re-opened up Pandora's Box Oct. 10th-ish in a Thursday forum and thought it was pertinent, in addition to being legitimately important. It's the equivalent of someone posting an AIM convo, but you take out all of the important details that give the convo meaning

hi Ryan

sorry but we declined because we hate this band, we just can't take them seriously and they totally suck with their promo photos, booking agent, tourbus, major record company and all that crap we feel too much far from. Sorry to disappoint you but fortunately we don't need these kind of offers to tour the US
!!

all the best
julien

-------------------------

Geoff Rickly replies on the Thursday fan site, Thursdizzle.net:

DIY is and has been alive in the US for a long time... I think a lot of the ethics of DIY are great(and I've been involved in that scene in many aspects for years[thanks lost in Paris]- as a promoter of house shows, putting out indie records, playing in bands that play DIY, community based shows and working to help establish a DIY network [allagesmovementproject]) and a lot of the people who espouse them are sincere. And a lot of the people that preach DIY just want to look cool and self-righteous. Great. Just what the world needs.

Thursday has been touring for ten years and played all over the world. We've had people help us, we've employed our friends, payed for their healthcare, made tons of music and art. It's been a full time job and we've loved it. If we had stayed diy and done it all, we would have done 1/2 the touring or less... How many chances have you had to see daitro???

I could also learn to make my own clothes and build my own house but I don't. Neither do most people. When you break it down we all choose what we want to make. Thursday chose music over business as a job.

Thursday is pretty fantastic and Daitro is pretty good,
I think whether they like Thursday that much or not, declining was a stupid move.
And it's not like Thursday is credible, Geoff is also a very respectable guy.
