    A few weeks ago, some of you may remember how I got in a bit of a stew over certain things a group by the name of Warm Audio were saying about my band via the miracle of their website. Well, I went down on the bounce to see their singer, and asked him what exactly they were playing at. Basically, he admitted that he had done it, and told me that it had been a joke. In fact, his exact words were "It was just a bit of fun... you should be able to take it."

    Fair enough, I thought. I had overreacted. Anyway, today my drummer saw their guitar player and got talking to him. Apparently, their singer is now upset because someone emailed them with abuse, mentioning the "prefuse spelling errors", or something like that. In fact, the guitarist me of doing it because I'm the only person he knows of who'd use the profuse. Which seems a bit strange to me.

    Well, I certainly didn't write the message, and seeing as I went on a big tirade about them on here, I reckon one of you is responsible. C'mon, own up, and show me the message that rattled their singer so much! :D

    (By the way, thanks for doing it, whoever it was - after he told me not to take critisim so personally, this gave me the biggest laugh I've had since the days of WHINEY GUTTERS! ;))
     
  2. Geez you would think the guy could take it.

    You have to love people that can bust balls but not take it when there own get busted. Maybe you should send him a box of tissues.
    Wasn't me.

    Who are you, Sheepman or something? :D
     
  8. Yeah, what he said! That's my job! :D:p
     
  9. I HAD to take it, okay? It just lept out at me, and it would have been a sin to let it go like that.

    Rock on

    By the way, what exactly did you write? I'd love to know just what upset him so much. And thanks for the laugh! :D

    I do remember this and I remember going to their site, which I thought was one of the worst I'd ever seen. I did send them some comments which were honest and probably very critical, but I can't for the life of me remember what I said!!

    I wouldn't have been rude, but it could have been sarcastic :rolleyes: - you can imagine the sort of thing, no doubt! ;)

    I just say what I would in real life and try to be as honest as possible - some people don't like honesty? :(

    Yes, I can imagine what it would be like to be on the end of a LINDFIELDING. ;)

    Actually the only thing I can remember is that I faked my email address and details so it looked like it came from Paul Weller - which I thought was a touch of genius! ;)

    But they did ask for feedback! :D
