No Age think Shag is a prick

Shag

Last week No Age dropped into FBi for a little interview. Apparently, it didn't go too well with the interviewer (a fella named Shag) offending the band on several occasions - repeatedly getting their names wrong, serving up with "backhanded compliments" and asking strange "dickish" questions.

Of course (because we live in the digital future) the band immediately blogged about how bad the interview went. The original blog post has now been amended with a more positive (or maybe sarcastic) spin. The editing was apparently brought about when one of the commenters pointed out that the group's Sydney sideshow was actually sponsorted by FBi. Punk rock?

Luckily, the wild kids over at Pedestrian saved a copy of the original rant/post. In all it's (whiney) glory...

This Motherfucker was the biggest Asshole. Check out his ironic shirt that says "I Love Being Black". He is apparently a DJ at a radio station that I am sure has better DJ's than him. He continually said weird backhanded complements and asked these bizarrely dickish questions. The best part was while our song was playing he said he "just read what other people wrote and repeated words he read, like Fidelity" WTF!!! Also, as a kicker he called us Jerry and Ray. Which I actually thought was pretty funny.

Look at him with his arms crossed! What a Prick!!!

Not to whine too much. It is just funny how after the fact you realize what a dick someone is being after you think about all the shit they said to you. At the time we were just psyched to be on Australian radio. Whatever, most of the radio interviews were AWESOME!

No official statement as yet from Shag's people.

I don't think shag's a dick, he's a really nice guy.

apart from accidentally getting their names wrong, it doesn't sound like he did anything at all? 'weird backhanded compliments' and 'bizarrely dickish questions'... what does that even MEAN? sounds like they are making drama out of nothing.

did anyone actually hear the interview? some of the comments on that blog are vicious... CALM DOWN INTERNETS.

This is pretty funny. I like the part about his ironic t-shirt and the whole saying "fidelity" thing.

Sure Shag is a really nice guy, but he does have the ability to say some really dickish things sometimes...as do we all, I guess.

I'll see if I can hunt down the interview. Oh and Bella your absence was noted at No Age on sunday :(

yeahhhh, maca and I were still at the annandale watching jordy. I will see no age one day... although it would've been hard to watch no age when my catchphrase that night was, "OMG WE SAY BAMBOULEE ARE THE CUTEST BAND IN THE WORLD EVER." (they so are.)

ha yeah jonny, that was probably me. I didn't see you though? it was really crowded and I felt epic amounts of intimidation from all the trendy art folk, hence social awkwardness.

ah, the josh pyke free wine night. those were simpler times. nevermind... someday we'll actually talk in "real life."

an apology to fbi but no real apology to shag, who has probably been hurt more by this than no age.

I doubt Shag is that cut up about it, everyone seems to be putting it down to No Age being dicks, rather than Shag being dickish....Anyways, Shag could used a good slice of humble pie.
