I don’t know where or when this happened but apparently Scott Vogel of Terror isn’t feelin’ this Refused reunion. The prolific front man is known for many things, one of which is his amazing stage banter. Normally his banter consists of the cliché hardcore sayings like “let’s move this shit”, etc, but this time Scott took a stab at the recently reunited Refused. This is what he had to say –
“A lot of bands that come around, they do their thing, they tell you how much they care, they write their songs, they write their lyrics, couple of years later, they disappear.They disappear, they don’t go to shows, they don’t support new bands, they don’t buy demos, they don’t give a fuck about me or you. But for some reason, we give them the mighty dollar to come back and play for us, a fake shell of what they once were. And yes, I’m talking about Refused. If you wanna support Refused, that’s up to you, but I don’t support that shit!”
Wut is this bro talking about?? I guess he doesn’t realize that dudes in Refused have been playing shows with The (International) Noise Conspiracy, TEXT, and AC4 since Refused broke up… I guess he doesn’t see the irony in calling a band with almost all original members a “sad shell” while there are only two original members left in his band.
Whatevs, I actually was lucky enough to attend the first North American Refused show in 15 years and let me be the first to say that is was fucking KILLER! I think they definitely out performed Terror (I’ve only seen Terror about 12 times over the past 10 years, but what do I know, right?). Don’t believe me? Check out this footage I got of Refused, it was taken on my shitty old cracked 3gs, but fuck it still sounds good……. Thoughts? #Butthurt
