I want to know why he was kicked out of the band. Then, it will all make sense.
 
2013-11-11 02:15:52 PM
Sounds like the band went all Yoko Ono on him and then he went all Kamikaze on them.

An update says he pawned their instruments and gear, without the rest of the band's permission.

If this is the band from SXSW, they were The Clash meets The English Beat. On my tablet so not going to look them up.

I actually knew a Brooklyn musician before she was famous. (Does having a Wikipedia page make you famous?) But this isn't her band. In fact, I've never heard of this band. So I went from hipper-than-thou to old fogy in a decade. Time flies when you're on the internet.

Latest update says it wasn't a band member. It was another musician they had a "personal conflict" with in the past.

Ironically, the caption on the photo in TFA would make a great band name, 'Bloodbath in Brooklyn.'

They were on 'FMU.   Linker.

And a Daily News article with pics and stuff.  Sorry 'bout the survey thingy, I don't know how to avoid it.

This is the most farked up paragraph I've seen in a while.

"Early Monday morning, a musician from Iran reportedly shot and killed two members of an Iranian-formed rock band before killing himself at an East Williamsburg, Brooklyn apartment. Another Iranian musician was also killed in the attack."

Did the writer consider an "Early Monday morning, an Iranian musician reportedly shot and killed three other Iranian musicians and then himself"?

If he was a bass player, it's probably because he tried to write a song.

I'm guessing there's got to be three or four albums worth of "unreleased material" that a manger / record company / family member can make a quick buck on.

Do you want me to shoot you too fast or too slow?
 
2013-11-11 03:58:30 PM
Huh... it's usually the damaru players.

Likely because of all the stupid jokes:
drummer: hey, when's the next gig?
bassist: oh, maybe damaru?

The real question is not why they did it but rather how can we get all the rest of the hipster douchebag bands to follow suit.
