    You are right, I should have ignored it or brushed it aside or played devil’s advocate like many, many people in here, right?

    Ignored what? We weren't on the topic.

    There’s always a need for good and positive discussions, but some people just aren’t equipped for that and just want to get people going and start an argument.

    Discovering the block feature HD made this site a lot more enjoyable for me.

    Haha, you'll have to forgive me by getting riled up last week and then seeing that schmuck post about music. Forgive me, because I don't follow him, but has he posted anything about the events last week?

    Okay, so I don't feel too bad for dunking on the dude for being silent on that and posting about music when he has nazi friends and nazi imagery on his social media

    Fair enough. You don’t need to feel bad or not. I’m just suggesting we keep the posts factual.

    Always do the right thing. Supporter

    I doubt Matt supports Trump or anything like that but he’s clearly a dumb shithead who has a weird Nazi fixation and when confronted about that or his pro-cop shirt or the alleged abuses or Nazi fixations of his friends he was a complete ass about it every time so if someone like that is in a band, it’s fair game to remind people of it, even if it’s unpleasant. Matt’s shitty, vague, and ill-defined views are worse.

    Looking back, most of your posts on the matter are attempting to play devil's advocate about the situation, so I am happy to not engage.

    A 60 second scroll on Skiba’s IG shows that he has posts making fun of Trump and the Proud Boys, and talking about his days in the ‘80s Chicago punk scene fighting Nazi punks. He also has repeated and continuous references to supporting law enforcement and veterans.

    There is absolutely zero that suggests he was either part of what happened last week at the Capitol, or that he needs to post something in the aftermath distancing himself from it. Or that he shouldn’t post about music because that stuff is going on.

    Do you really think I think he was there?
     
  12. I mean, Skiba was part of the Mob that tried storming the GC News Studio calling for Coleman Reese’s head.

    I love how SCR is a company you either love or hate. I've never had any issues with them at all, haha.

    I have had one 'successful' order with them. That one was 4 months late. The rest of my 3 orders resulted in charge backs because their customer service would not respond, yet all the sudden after the charge back is initiated, they somehow reach out.

    They will also market a release date for presses that are no where near their actual ship dates. I can not explain how much I dislike SRC.

    Back to the discussion about the Nine rollout.. when comparing that to the rollout of California, I’m wondering how much of a roll the labels had in it. California was on BMG and Nine on Columbia. California went to number one, they had huge tours with extensive production, even did a Vegas residency. Nine never got a true album release tour (pandemic considered of course) and we can all agree the rollout was just not what you’d expect. Idk, to me it seems like they did much better with BMG and had more focus on them from the label folks whereas with Columbia they sort of got lost in the fold.

    I just enjoy learning about how labels and management operate so thought I’d share my lonesome thoughts.

    Somewhat related, I wonder if they signed with BMG while Tom was in the band and that’s why AVA signed with Rise (a BMG subsidiary).

    Cheers!

    I agree the NINE roll out was poor especially compared to California. I think not having a stronger lead single hurt. Bored To Death was universally loved while Blame It On My Youth was very mixed (to the point where Mark isn’t even sure they will play it live again because of the non reaction from the fans when they played it). I think the band was expecting BIOMY was going to be a much bigger radio hit than it was.

    I also think not having the album out in time for their summer tour hurt too. I have to believe the band planned to have it out by June when the tour started and they kept pushing the release out because they were still working on it.

    Even when the album was released it wasn’t really promoted compared the California. It was kind of forgotten about a few weeks later.

  20. I feel that’s kinda been the M.O. for a lot of music releases in recent years. Hype and build up followed by 2-3 weeks excitement and success then moving on. At least that’s how it is with me, aside from a handful of albums I consistently listen to. It’s not that these albums are bad, but I’ve totally noticed that most albums just don’t stand the test of time like they used to for me.

    It’s kinda sad thinking about it now.
