I feel Raw Power were keen to use Skullflower's name to give their weak festival some credibility, but then they realised that stabbing Bower in the back would give them plenty of free publicity, I'd never heard of them before this.

AKA before half the internet PE goons assuming Raw Power is some clueless 'hipster' noob festival had even discovered Whitehouse via youtube links they found on 4chan. :D



Internet PE Goons, that's too funny. :D , I can't argue back, I don't mean to be rude, I am too amused and that made my day.

It's not true that he's some 'hipster' 'SJW' outsider, and it's not true that he's cynically kicking up a fuss for publicity. Whatever you think of the decision he has simply seen material and statements he personally finds unacceptable and, as he has absolutely every right to do, has cancelled an artist because of it after first giving them a chance to respond.

To formulate an accurate opinion it would be necessary to know how exactly he got cancelled and what was said. It is hard for me to believe the ignorance in suddenly finding out about some "questionable" (whatever the fuck that means) shitposts by an artists who is already on your bill and then cancelling them because of that. That seems like such a douche move to me but if the majority of your target audience applauds this then I don't think it's too far fetched to speculate a publicity motive. Censorship in art is atrocious in my opinion and promoters these days are fucking pussies backing down from anything that could potentially cause backlash. People act like it's a virtuous thing to deplatform artists as if their performance would turn the whole audience into nazis.

I was having a private discussion with John Doran (Quietus, BBC, Vice mag etc etc) in the days before he decided to run with the piece. We managed to remain civil with each other - we have a number of real life friends in common.

Fairly convinced that the motives for this series are purely financial, unlike the ideological reasoning of previous dissenting voices calling for self-policing in underground (Christoph Fringeli/Datacide, Andy Wilson/WMTN, Stewart Home, John Eden etc).

Most recent interview with Bower clearly states that his star of origin is Sirius.

We are the opposers of the sun god and white bread family

Thanks for the notice S.

In what regards to the rest of this mess of a thread I cannot care less. Still there is an option for those whom want and cannot reach by iron fist. Utilize guerilla internet tactics and hit Quietus and related folk where it might hurt - in the 'cash-in internet clicks'. Would love to see a wave of social media reporting of their posts as spam, bullying, etc. Posts are at your disposal to be removed if you really care. Music is war.

Music is war.

Consequences for Hicham Chadly for his continued Skullflower support and involvement may be more serious than butthurt feelings bearing in mind where he lives. Excellent interview re: the Nashazphone label is at https://madamasr.com/en/2017/04/04/feature/culture/music-industry-conversations-hicham-chadly/

Collateral damage.

I hadn't even heard of the Quietus either, I checked the article at the time and it was laughable and weak.

This one is quite enjoyable if I remember right:

But I guess the new one received more clicks in a week than this one ever.
