DOOM: Official Statement 22-04-2015
We would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support & positive messages that we have received from all over the world. It is extremely humbling to receive such heartfelt love & support, from not only our friends & families, but also people we have never met; including the family & friends of those tragically killed or injured in Santiago. This is the true spirit of the DIY Punk Community/ethos that we love & that inspires us to do what we do.
We will continue to work with the friends & families of those killed & injured to try to help as much as we can. This is the focus, not defending our reputation against those who will use any situation to attack us and make despicable accusations & lies about us.
The victims & their families in this tragedy deserve as much help financially as we can help with, so we will be setting up various ways of fundraising, including a benefit download release of our new EP when it is finished. We are in contact with people in Chile & want to ensure that any money donated by the band or our fans will be distributed to the relevant people. If anyone can help with this, please contact us, it would be greatly appreciated. DOOM
Spending the day on the continuing great vinyl sort out... Boxes of thousands of different kinds of vinyl/CD ... Going to be a year going through this stuff. A lot of it is ex-shop stock from my dad's record shop (Record Village, 1976 - 2007 sadly missed)... He's selling this stuff off...
Listing are going up on Ebay, and there's going to be some good stuff too (if you zoom in you can see some gems already found just in the last couple of days... Atom Heart Mother original-pressing, signed by all four members of that era Pink Floyd ..anyone? :) .... look out for the listings if you're into vinyl or physical music products of genuine age.
I’m sick of Trophy Hunters trying to excuse their grim sport by saying they provide a service. They exploit the needs of the poor. They pay lots of money to go and shoot a magnificent animal because the authorities need the cash, and then claim they are doing a good deed. It’s not a good deed. Those authorities would rather have the money AND the animal still alive but they can’t afford to. So they’re forced to take money from rich psychopaths who get their cheap fucking thrills from shooting a giraffe or elephant in the head. If they were providing a service THEY would be the ones being paid. Imagine a vet paying you to put down your dog and then taking a selfie next to the corpse. And as for “the money goes to saving there remaining animals”..Oh dear. Where will it end? Can you pay more to kill the leopard with a hammer if that’s your perversion? They’re already killing with bows and arrows for fucks sake. And would we allow some billionaire sicko to shoot one cancer patient if he gave a million dollars to cancer research? No. Of course we fucking wouldn’t. If they really wanted to do a good deed they would donate the money, and NOT shoot the animal. They would be heroes then. As opposed to murdering scum.
