I guess Greyhound bus ran an ad in XLR8R using the photos above of Dan Deacon, Baltimore laptop-noise act Wzt Hearts, Japan’s Ruins, and a crowdsurfer at a Team Robespierre gig.
All the artists got pissed because they weren’t contacted about using the rights to their photo and band. None of them endorse Greyhound as Dan Deacon has flawlessly explained:
“greyhound bus company is one of the worst run, bullshit companies i have ever had the misfortune to use. they are a total monopoly and take advantage of that with poor service and price hikes and route cancellation. they have bought all the other smaller companies and run them out of their office in dallas. they treat both their employees and customers like shit. they are a cancer.
since i do not drive i used to use them to get to shows (when nothing else was available). on many occasions i had to cancel shows because the bus would be late, my luggage would get lost/stolen, the over sell their buses, and fuck i fucking hate them.
it really upsets me that i am being used to promote them. if i had my way i would see all their buses transport guns to all the people they have fucked over.
like many evil companies they are trying to use subversive advertising and i will not allow myself to be a cog in their wheel of lies and deceit. these rats stink like rotten cum. fuck them with 1000 fires.
in case this message finds its way to someone in the advertising department of greyhound: eat my shorts you dickless pig fuckers.”
