Jon has been fired from Refused. Messages from the band and Jon are in the replies.
I was fired from Refused a while ago. I wasn’t given a reasonable explanation and wasn’t even invited to sit down and talk about it, so I'm not completely sure why they decided to go on without me. We’ve always been better at punk rock than democratic processes and dealing with conflicts, so I guess I’m not too surprised it went down like this.
Yet late last year, Mr. Simpson surprised even himself by mulling a reunion to mark what would have been the band’s 20th anniversary. He had spoken very little with his former bandmates, the bassist Jeremy Gomez, the guitarist Scott McCarver and the drummer Gabriel Wiley, even though they all live in Austin. But after a few rehearsals, the band announced in May a series of reunion dates culminating in a hometown appearance at next weekend’s Fun Fun Fun Fest. In September, they played three sold-out nights at New York’s Bowery Ballroom and two dozen standing-room-only shows on both coasts.
We love Taylor Swift, and our more than 40 million users love her even more – nearly 16 million of them have played her songs in the last 30 days, and she’s on over 19 million playlists. We hope she’ll change her mind and join us in building a new music economy that works for everyone. We believe fans should be able to listen to music wherever and whenever they want, and that artists have an absolute right to be paid for their work and protected from piracy. That’s why we pay nearly 70% of our revenue back to the music community.

There is nothing in this world like gypsy punk. Gogol Bordello played a sold-out show in Austin last night at Stubbs Amphitheater. Normally the crowd at this venue is kind of ass-holey, but last night everyone was singing, dancing, stomping, and as they say "thinking locally, and fucking globally". Check out some photos as well as a link to the full gallery below. ¡Viva Gogol!
Ghost Thrower frontman Travis Alexander is part of a new mockumentary about the life and struggles of a nonexistent band on the road called Soft Sevens. It's kind of like The Office meets Spinal Tap. Watch the first episode in the replies.
