OK, being in a band and getting dropped is always bad (unless you're Jimmy Eat World, in which case you party like it's 1999), and I'm not going to laugh at them, 'cause that just plain stupid.

However, and it's a big however, I still think this band really fucking suck.

Shame they've been dropped, but it may be for the better, Island are a bunch of arseholes.

Island do seem like idiots, especially the main guy who sits and watches everything from a tv and goes......"yeah theyre okay but theyre shite!....change everything!!!"

THP were kinda forced to write radio-friendly songs, which they obviously hated. So it sucks that they got dumped, but at least they've now got a chance to try again and do what they wanna do

And I heard the sample track on the Portobello website. And its safe to say that Island are shit. Although they publish the Mad Capsule Markets stuff over here I think, so they're not all bad...

hahaha

"forced"

They weren't forced to do anything. If they had any integrity at all, they wouldn't play songs they hated just to appease their record bosses who in turn only care about sales.

Perhaps their plan was to start all friendly and stuff, and once they held some sway they could start with the dope shit, yo. Then again, maybe not...after all, they did go on TRL, or so I hear.

If this Breaking Point thing is a pop-orientated thing, then why are the Tokyo Dragons in it? I mean, from what they look like, they're not really McFly, are they?

i liked the holiday plan, i had their ep from when they were on UNIVERSAL so it just goes to show they were signed before that shite programme,

foolproof were good too,
though tokyo dragons sounded like a bad datsuns clone and portabella were just plain shit


covered in spunk indeed

I may have worded that wrong. I meant forced to release. I suck at words. And if tehy didn't play that sorta style, they'd have got dumped a lot sooner...
