"You greedy rat head fuck"

A Guy Called Gerald is a righteous dude... when he played after Sandwell's District's Boiler Room set recently, you could tell he was awed by the collective's storming of the room. But he's got less time for Deadmau5 (about whom Rory had words to say yesterday.)

Writing on his blog under the post title "Message to Rat Head", A Guy Called Gerald had this to say: "I know who you are. You are some record company or failed journalist asshole left over from the last century who is jealous of the way electronic music is working in this brave fast new century. The only button you and people like you are interested in pushing is a nuke for the Palestinians. You come into our system that we have nurtured for the last 25 years, trick hardworking people into giving you their money, con honest promoters, take large sums of money out of the system and then spit back into our faces that YOU are tricking everyone.

"I agree there are loads of people like you who do fake it. It is easy with the software you are using. Don't worry we are going to find ways of stopping you. You greedy rat head fuck."
