"You greedy rat head fuck"

Add your comment »

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."

Slightly low-hanging fruit, Gerald. Deadmau5 is popular, people stump to see him, how's that conning anyone? He wrote a blog about it himself - - you pays your money, etc., and other platitudes.

Making assumptions about Deadmau5/Zimmermans race/religion, then making the further assumption that this race/religion are uniformly in agreement about the policies of a certain government most of them didn't vote for - in a country most of them don't live in - is frankly pretty ignorant and not very righteous. Also pretty depressing. I agree with everything else he says though

Can anybody on here, without recourse to Google, actually name a Dead Maus track?

'Course not.
