  1. All press is good press but, with that said this was a really awkward read. I don’t even think the writer understood the message he was trying to convey.

  2. Wow, that Paul Lester guy needs to die. It was supposed to be a music review of sorts, not a barrage of personal attacks.

  4. I’m a little late on commenting on this, but I don’t think he’s referring to you as “sexually deficient”. Paul Lester’s writing style can be a very hard to read and follow at times. If you read the article again, he started the sentence, “It’s an enticing thought…”

    “It’s an enticing thought: a black Morrissey or Elvis Costello, a rap nerd, a miserabilist hip-hop doofus, who is sexually deficient, suffers from a shyness that is criminally vulgar, and in terms of the gamut of emotions only understands revenge and guilt. We’d love to see one of those, we really would..”

    To me he is describing an ‘imaginary’ artist he’d like to see. I think you triggered that ramble in him, but he’s not describing you or your music.

    Either way, I really like your music, the ‘fusion’ of some many genres but still being very ‘audible’, funky, hip, etc. Sometimes you hear people try to mix a bunch of styles together but it just ends up sounding like ‘noise’.

    Rock on! and al the best for 2010.

  5. He’s crazy you’re AMAZING…end of story!
