  • BlushfulHippocrene Glad to hear it. Yet to hear Slowly Slowly as a full band, only seen Ben solo. I listened to a bit of Sincerely, Grizzly since you last mentioned them, so that's amazing, man. And I saw that, too, kinda rushed to grab mine when I found out they might actually sell out. I've not seen The Smithies promote it yet, but I've a feeling it'll sell out when they do.

  • BlushfulHippocrene Anyway, you're right, we'll have to wait and see, it's going to be interesting how it all transpires. Did you end up snatching those Ceres tickets for August, man? And did you end up going to that Slowly Slowly gig? ((:

  • BlushfulHippocrene Between this and the PWR BTTM scandal, I think a dangerous precedent is being set. Even if the allegations are true in either case, it's demonstrating that it isn't hard to bring down an artist via social media. I've seen people writing things like, "This band makes s*** music anyway," as though it justifies the potentially ruining a career.

  • BlushfulHippocrene Might sound controversial, but whether the claims are true or not, it's shrouded in ideological phrases. A lot of people throwing around vague but heavy language, "serial rapist," "abuser," "abuse," etc. I suppose I'm just going to have to wait, I think preemptively taking sides is dangerous. If you side with the band, you might be dismissing legitimate victims; if you side with people trying to take down the band, you might be unwarrantedly ruining a career. Sorry for the rant. :P

  • BlushfulHippocrene It's so difficult, because I'm aware of a lot of unfounded similar allegations against artists in the past, and I'm going through the Facebook posts now and a lot of the people posting are making non-specific, dismissive statements -- a lot of people who aren't involved -- but at the same time I'd rather not dismiss the people coming forward, because at this point it's literally he said, she said. At the same time, the hate lobbied at Triple J is just dumb IMO...
