Just kidding. That’s impossible to imagine. Today however, it is totally normal for a shoegaze indie band to be dropped from their label for laughing at a dude with tits in a rival band. 

Some band named Whirr got dropped by some label called Run For Cover because they made fun of a band called Girls Living Outside of Society’s Shit.

My column on the subject is HERE

    Your link isn’t to your column (1:44 Eastern)
    Reminds me, did you ever follow up on that Asian band ‘The Slants’ controversy?

  2. definitelymaybe says:

    Sounds like it’s time for another DIY revolution!

  3. Alec Leamas says:

    Seems like the label(s) missed an opportunity to do a Biggie/Tupac East Coast/West Coast feud thing and sell otherwise unmarketable shitty music.

    Oh, and what better way to spend one’s free time than transphilic feminist agitation punk rock. That’s Rock and Roll, man.

  4. John Pittsley says:

    Link fixed. You can stop YELLING now!

  5. Dino says:

    I’m guessing if people were saying mean shit about Christians or right wing politicians the label would applaud them for speaking the truth

  6. dun says:

    “Chicago Collective of Punks Of Color”

    get ready for a rip-roaring good time!

  7. Dad Religion says:

    A tiny band got dropped by a tiny record label. Said record label doesn’t have the reason but has the right. This is free market capitalism in action. Whirr should start their own label, which would also be free market capitalism in action. I don’t see what all the fuss is over. Starting your own label or even self-releasing stuff isn’t that hard to do. This is all a storm in a teacup. The record label should be shamed, but who has the time to do that when you’re out starting a record label, promoting your business and playing a bunch of shows.

    I laugh at a guy with tits all the time. 300 lbs. and rising. Eating a lunch of Doritos and Mountain Dew can do that to a fellow.

  9. The Clash reported called Tom Robinson a queer etc at Rock Against Racism. xoxo
