I’ve been asked a few time why on earth I keep posting about this dude and his former band. The truth is some form of twisted duality… To be honest, I can’t for the life of me figure out why people are intrigued with the current front-men of this severely comprised and ultimately bastardized ‘scene’. To take a slight look into the past, I can say that this whole falsetto singing with the quasi-transsexual look ordeal has been done time and time again, and truth be told when Freddie Mercury (literally) and David Bowie (figuratively) died, so did that whole concept. Besides, those dudes had 2 things going for them: raw talent and no pitch correction. These two cent rip offs like Radke or the Tokio Hotel guys are blatantly going by the whole ‘Just fake it til’ you make it!’ process, which is great to make a quick buck (in which I’ll applaud them for), but kills off any chance of retaining any integrity… as if these current group of scalawags had any to begin with.
The second reason, of course, is because it keeps the fat scene girls coming back to our humble blog site, which earns me the big bucks.
Anyways, onto the meat and potatoes of these shenanigans: if you haven’t heard or have been fortunate enough to not have RSS feeds from crappy online music journals, Mr. Radke has formed a new band, entitled From Behind These Walls (as said prior, playing off of his super creativity and is passion to let everyone know he’s in jail earning ‘street cred’)… I guess the U.S. Judicial system is now letting their inmates start rock bands during their 1 hour of rec time each day. They’ve apparently had some makeshift demo up for a bit, and according to everyone on the internet who’s ReAlLY kEWl!!!one!1, they’re the next Velvet Underground. Well I’m proud to announce they’ve put up a new demo, featuring none other than Ronnie Radke’s vocals. I honestly don’t know weather to take it seriously or not, because the ‘lyrics’ (and I use that term with it’s most liberal of meanings) are just laughable.
In other Radke news, his fans are doing just about the worst thing they could possibly do, which is writing into his parole board. I swear to God, I think I would actually pay money to read some of these letters, which would almost definitely read “Dear Parolez, Hai! I jest wannt’d to sez that Ronniez is a-Mazing singer, and iz SuPpr HaWT! Plz leT him Out!!! Luvz, xxPatriciaxx”.
So How many of you want Ronnie out ASAP!!????? Well we think we figured how you can help… When Ronnies parole hearing comes up, we want to be able to show them all the love and support that ronnie has.. How many fans, family, and friends that want and need Ronnie to come home.. Not only that but he does NOT deserve to be in there.. and the sooner he comes home the sooner we can start recording!!!!!
So help us out and lets work together !!!!
Here’s what we need.. We need you to write a letter to the Parole Board.. so title it “Dear Parole Board” – Regarding Ronald J. Radke 1023230
.. and then write your hearts out.. Please don’t be vulger or rude.. no cursing, or anything of that nature, just the kind of stuff you write us on here.. From the heart and meaningful.. Show these people how Ronnie has affected so many lives and why we all need him out to come back to his people and to sing again..
You will be sending the letter to my girlfriend and we willl be taking that to the parole our selves to show them (and ronnie, cause he will be there) all the love and support..
Love to you all, NaStY
The only thing that can truly make this whole situation better is that some people replying to the blog are convincing each other to hand write the letters; convinced that the I’s dotted with hearts and stars and the spritz of their Hot Topic brand perfume is really going to wow over the Parole Board. I love it.
Maybe I’m just sobering up from reading a collection of speed-induced, depressive music essays written by the late Lester Bangs (check it:Mainlines, Blood Feasts and Bad Taste), but the current state of music has me a bit bummed out. Fuck it, I’m in Cabo for a few more days, I’m going to go hunt down Audrina Partridge and see if I can get lucky (i.e. roofies).
