Topic: magrudergrind- scion (toyota) sponsered new ep...

I only read about this today, but apparently Scion have paid for all the records costs in exchange for advertising on the label (i think just as a label or something).

Thoughts on this? Obviously it's kind of weird that a band like Magrudergrind would do it given what i assume they've stood for and it's not exactly within the diy spirit of things, but it's not that far apart from a band releasing something with a subsidery of a major label, except they get fucked over a lot less and actually get a decent deal out of it. But you can only get it in the US so fuck those guys...

Re: magrudergrind- scion (toyota) sponsered new ep...

The band made a long statement about their decision to release a record with Scion and they've been much more involved in DIY as individuals than a good 90% of the so-called DIY punk scene. One may agree or not with their decision but people shouldn't make up their mind on the matter too quickly, I think.

More power to me.

i am a sick man... i am an spiteful man. i am an unattractive man. i believe my liver is diseased.

Oh my, an irrelevant band made a lame decision.

yup, that's the part that is more bemusing.

yeah. that was the strangest part for me as well, especially when i had a look at the other releases by scion and they're all hip-hop/electro and mainly comps. very odd.

Re: magrudergrind- scion (toyota) sponsered new ep...

the new magrudergrind ep, it's all like KAAKOOOOOW!!

boosh.

Re: magrudergrind- scion (toyota) sponsered new ep...

from what i've read i think scion have been involved with some of hardcore/grind/metal shows in the US for a while, just sponsering it and making it free or whatever. it is weird though as generally i wouldn't have thought it was the most fertile market for car buyers.

There is also Scion Garage fest http://www.scion.com/garagefest/

they've been much more involved in DIY as individuals than a good 90% of the so-called DIY punk scene.

yaawwwn.

Re: magrudergrind- scion (toyota) sponsered new ep...

Well, I actually couldn't care less about anyone's opinion on the issue here nor about Magrudergrind for that matter, but I was just saying it's too easy to judge them for that. Whatever.

More power to me.

This is just a good mantra for dealing with any issue!
