Petition in support of Ghomeshi's alleged victims signed by F*cked Up, Constantines

Posted by johng on Friday, October 31, 2014 at 3:00 PM (EDT)
Image As you may know by now, CBC star Jian Ghomeshi was recently fired by the radio network after receiving reports that Ghomeshi exhibited violent behavior and unwanted sexual actions towards multiple women. Now, a petition has been started to support the alleged victims of Ghomeshi.

In part, the petition states, "We condemn the PR attempt to make you out to be a "jilted ex” and we see through the deplorable strategy of re-routing a conversation that should be about consent and assault to one about BDSM. No one should be abused anywhere - not on a date, not in a workplace. No one should be intimidated out of coming forward with their own stories."

Notably, the petition is signed by several prominent musicians including Fucked Up, The Constantines, Owen Pallett, Jennifer Castle, Katie Stelmanis, and many others. See the petition here.

Charges dropped against man jailed for posting Exodus lyrics

Posted by johng on Friday, October 31, 2014 at 11:00 AM (EDT)
Image As you may recall, earlier this year, a man was jailed for posting Exodus lyrics on his face book. James Evans posted lyrics from the Exodus song "Class Dismissed" on his Facebook page and was jailed by Kentucky police for making terroristic threats. He spent more than a week in jail before being released (without having the charges dropped.)

Well, recently, the charges were dropped against Evans. Represented by the ACLU, Evans through an ACLU attorney stated "Evans is relieved that these very serious criminal charges have been dismissed, and he is grateful for all of the support he has received during this difficult time. A conviction on first-degree terroristic threatening could have landed Evans in jail for up to 10 years."

The police and DA's office have not released a statement.

Interviews: Jack Terricloth (World/Inferno Friendship Society)

Posted by johng on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
Image Jack Terricloth of The World/Inferno Friendship Society is contemplating death. You see, when he first moved to New York he became infatuated with the band-du-jour, The Paranoid Style. Fronted by the lovely Grace Talicious, The Paranoid Style perfected the difficult combination of sophisticated elegance and radical art.

Terricloth pined after Talicious for years, only building up the courage to finally contact her last year, just before World/Inferno’s annual Hallowmas concert. But, just as Terricloth was about to reach out to Talicious, she was struck dead. Instead of Hallowmas being a celebration, it was quickly converted to a wake for Talicious (although, it was still a big party).

Now World/Inferno is on the verge of releasing This Packed Funeral out November 11 via Alternative Tentacles Records. The album features Terricloth and the rest of the band, speaking at Talicious’ wake, reflecting on what was, and what could have been. Days before the band’s annual Hallowmas show (the details of which the band is keeping hush-hush, though surely, it will play into the album somehow) features editor John Gentile spoke to Terricloth about life, death, and pagan gods.
