– We hope the best for all segments of life..off course in their/our own way..
oukay guys, we finish this shit. sorry if my question was boring hehhe. any last word for
salahcetax die hard reader?
– Yeah,I would like to say these…
We’re in underground scene..in a special case,like example..we always see slogan “support your local band/scene/distro”, but the fact we never really support them,in other way we give a shit about them,see what I mean ? If you really suppor them, buy local band original cd or cassette (don’t copy their mp3 most of the time),or you buy local band licensed merchandise,or you buy tickets for underground shows instead of buying alcohols, and don’t make fights at show..if you do such things,there you go..you are supporting guy..above are the best way to support scene/band. So how come you support here,support there ? but the fact you don’t do such things above..make fights at show,don’t buy tickets at show,never buy local band original cd’s and licensed merchandise,that sucks man..that’s why underground in here stucked? has never grown up..No wonder our scenes here are very close to death..that’s all n I want to say,I still hope our scenes/bands get better in the future.We really have to think twice again for what we say about supporting your local scene/band or even distro..because it is not happening for right now.
And for you tom,you really have to work on your grammar man,he..thanks for this interview..it’s been an honour,dadah..
