I saw them too in 2011, they were good for the most part but went on the verge of self parody at times. Not a bad show by any means (I've seen ten times worse) but I know a lot of people who saw them same show I did were not too impressed. Anyone heard the new album yet?
I've seen them in a packed house and with maybe 20 people at the venue and each time they played their hearts out.
Ya'll are some crazy fools if you think they're horrible live. (coughcoughhayzozocoughcough)
Really?? Saw them in London last summer and they were absolutely incredible, one of the best live shows I've ever seen. The sound was amazing, they got the whole audience involved, and nailed some killer jams. They were clearly having a great time, so we all did too. Sorry they were a disappointment...
"Crass font/circle, bastard logo, and Vonnegut quote triple rip on one shirt without any acknowledgement." Er, the acknowledgement seems pretty blatant in the ape-ing itself. I think whether you're a Crass, MITB, or Vonnegut fan the A/Family respects your intelligence enough to know that name-dropping is beyond your fancy. Oh well...this is all just a bad parody of life.
Crass font/circle, bastard logo, and Vonnegut quote triple rip on one shirt without any acknowledgement. Yet people still support them? Akron is the bastard and they always will be. I'm sure you'd all be singing a different tune if you were the victim of plagiarism.
Boy, some people. But hey, it's one of those things. The reaction was so strong in the beginning that even if it was a misunderstanding, they're not going to stand down and say "oh, right I see, sorry for causing a fuss..." Should have gotten permission I guess.
I'd love to see these MitB die-hard fans supporting ACTA. They're on the right path. Nothing's original in this world, even that skull is way older than Eric Wood's own grandma. Punks are amusing. Love and Space to them all.
I somehow don't think A/F are making any more money because of that skull logo than they would've anyway . . . sorry, MitB fans, but A/F have a lot more fans. They aren't making extra money by using that image.
They should've had the foresight to ask, though, just in case Man is the Bastard turned out to be bastards.
