Warren Oakes Leaves Against Me! – We Are Upset (that is to say, fightclubsandwich and I)

Fightclubsandwich says (16:47):
WARREN OAKES LEFT AGAINST ME!
Ripper says (16:48):

HOLY SHIT NO
Fightclubsandwich says (16:48):

It irks me that this band already uses an exclamation mark
it feels like I should add in a special one
to connote my shock
Ripper says (16:49):

You have to add double, yeah
Because AM! without Warren is like a pirate ship with no beard.
Fightclubsandwich says (16:49):

okay then, WARREN OAKES LEFT AGAINST ME!!!!
Ahaha, quite the apt imagery
Ripper says (16:49):

I love his beard. BUT NOT IN A MEXICAN RESTAURANT GEEZ
Fightclubsandwich says (16:49):

It’s so weird. I mean, in a way I kind of feel like… now that they’ve had their first line up change, they’re a real band now?
OH GOD YOU’RE RIGHT, HE WOULD SHED IN ALL THE FOOD
Ripper says (16:50):

They’ve had lineup changes before now, I swear. But it’s like, the first major one since Andrew joined.
Fightclubsandwich says (16:51):

Oh, duh
you’re right
I need to go back do some Revising Axl Rose
Ripper says (16:51):

Ahahaha, for reals
Fightclubsandwich says (16:51):

You enjoyed my bad pun?
Ripper says (16:51):

I did indeed, I’m probably the only person in the world who would
Who’s gonna play drums now, anyway?
I forsee sad times ahead =(
Fightclubsandwich says (16:52):

Mr Hot Water Music
George Rebelo
Ripper says (16:52):

Oh, that might not be so bad.
Fightclubsandwich says (16:52):

sounds like he may be a bit of a rebel
shake things up a bit
Ripper says (16:52):

But tricky for both bands, I imagine
Fightclubsandwich says (16:52):

hmm
are Hot Water Music even together, still?
Ripper says (16:53):

Yeah, they reformed last year
Fightclubsandwich says (16:53):

Not gonna lie, I know little to nothing about Hot Water Music
Ripper says (16:53):

Chuck’s doing a load of solo shows at the moment so I don’t forsee much HWM activity right now
Fightclubsandwich says (16:53):

I mean, I’ve liked what I’ve heard, but… geh.
Didn’t Chuck play solo shows with Tom Gabel?
Ripper says (16:53):

Yeah, Tom supported
That I would have loved to have been able to see.
Fightclubsandwich says (16:54):

You would have a beardgasm
I suspect
Ripper says (16:54):

It would be heaven
Anna Is A Stool Pidgeon live, I’d just lose my shit right there
Fightclubsandwich says (16:55):

The Tom Gabel solo album is totally on my List
Ripper says (16:55):

I love it, it’s awesome
Fightclubsandwich says (16:55):

but I am poor and also need the latest Trophy Scars and the latest Morrissey ones
Ripper says (16:55):

Pfft, nobody needs the latest Morrissey, hahaha.
Oh, and further investigating…
Fightclubsandwich says (16:55):

What, is it really bad?
the new Morrissey, I mean
Ripper says (16:55):

AM! are bringing out an EP of older material
and no, but it’s SUMMER and you need happy music
not Morrissey, ahaha
Fightclubsandwich says (16:56):

Ahaha
SHUT UP
I HATE SUNNY DAYS
I MEET PEOPLE AT THE CEMETERY GATES INSTEAD
Ripper says (16:56):
YOU COULD NEVER LIVE IN GAINSVILLE
Fightclubsandwich says (16:56):
THEY COPY SHIT FROM POETS
Ripper says (16:56):
FOR SHAME
FOR SHAME
Fightclubsandwich says (16:56):
AND TELL ME THEY MADE IT UP
AND I GO BANANAS ON THEIR ASSES
Ripper says (16:56):
Not gonna lie, that actually sounds like fun.
Fightclubsandwich says (16:57):
It is from the song Cemetery Gates
I forgot you don’t know much about The Smiths
Ripper says (16:57):
No, I’m a Cure girl instead, haha
Fightclubsandwich says (16:57):
did I put it on your mix CD?
Ripper says (16:57):
Yeah, you did, but I didn’t listen to that so much, I was rockin’ the Armalite and Cher
omg, that Cher song, best thing to put on a mix cd ever
Fightclubsandwich says (16:57):

Gotta love the Cher
Every mix I ever make is full of hardcore punk and cheesy guilty pleasures
and other bits
Ripper says (16:58):

I don’t make that many, so yours was an interesting experience for me
Fightclubsandwich says (16:58):

I PUT YOU GIVE LOVE A BAD NAME ON THE MIX I MADE FOR MY FRIEND ROB
Ripper says (16:58):

YOU HAVE TO
IT’S THE LAW
Fightclubsandwich says (16:58):

HE DID NOT LIKE IT
I WAS SHOCKED AND APPALLED
Ripper says (16:58):

Everyone needs some Jovi!
My mum would kill me if I didn’t like that song, ahahaha
Fightclubsandwich says (16:58):

I don’t even like Bon Jovi, but that song is awesome
I despise Living On A Prayer
I mean, seriously, if you could stab a song…
Ripper says (16:59):

Livin’ On A Prayer is overplayed, that’s the problem
but it’s the best thing to do on Guitar Hero
cause everyone just screams it out
Fightclubsandwich says (16:59):

That sounds like my hell
Ripper says (16:59):

Then I’ll put you through it one day, and you’ll love it, it’ll be like masochism
Fightclubsandwich says (17:00):

NO THANK YOU
What did you think of the Neutral Milk Hotel songs, incidentally?
Ripper says (17:00):

Fuckin’ ace
Fightclubsandwich says (17:00):

I adooooore that album
Ripper says (17:00):

I’d listened to SOME Neutral Milk Hotel before, but not from that album
and I love it, I’m gonna have to buy that one
Fightclubsandwich says (17:01):

If you want, I can copy it for you?
I would trade you for Balzac, maybe?
Ripper says (17:01):

Haha, go for it.
Balzac are like the Japanese Misfits
but their singer is nowhere near as foxy as Danzig
Fightclubsandwich says (17:02):

I WILL ASSUME YOU MEAN OLD DANZIG
not… now-Danzig
Ripper says (17:02):

YES BECAUSE NOW HE IS OLD
Back in the day Danzig when he was still skinny, ahaha
Fightclubsandwich says (17:02):

Does he still go topless?
Iggy Pop style?
Ripper says (17:02):

Yes, he does
Fightclubsandwich says (17:02):

Oh no
Ripper says (17:02):

It’s not as terrifying as Iggy though cause he still has muscle
Fightclubsandwich says (17:02):

Iggy Pop has muscle, but it’s like, cover it up, Grandpa, I don’t want you to get a cold!
Ripper says (17:03):

Iggy Pop looks so gross though, on account of the drugs
Fightclubsandwich says (17:03):

yeah
and the smashing broken glass into his own body
Ripper says (17:03):

Yeah, not so fun
Danzig’s just built like a tank
but I could take him
Fightclubsandwich says (17:03):

AHAHA
I would like to see that
Ripper says (17:04):

I COULD SO TAKE HIM
Remember the video where he just got owned?
Fightclubsandwich says (17:04):

… no?
In what way, “owned”?
Ripper says (17:04):

Oh man, gonna have to find it
he picks a fight with this guy and gets punched in the face
Fightclubsandwich says (17:04):

oh
I could probably go without seeing that
Ripper says (17:04):

Check it out
It’s hilarious, you need to see it
ahaha
Fightclubsandwich says (17:05):

my favourite is the video where he talks about his library
Ripper says (17:05):

YES!
and he’s shirtless
in the library
Fightclubsandwich says (17:05):

“this is a book about angels of death”
“this is a book about how Christianity is a religion founded on death and murder”
Ripper says (17:06):

What was his favourite?
I can’t remember
Fightclubsandwich says (17:06):

me neither
it was probably about demons possessing children
Ripper says (17:07):

Most likely
Fightclubsandwich says (17:07):

or perhaps I’m thinking of the song Teenagers From Mars
Ripper says (17:07):

Either way, I’m watching it now
Fightclubsandwich says (17:07):

haha

OH GOD SO TRAGIQUE

Ripper says (17:08):

OH NO
When will they learn?
Fightclubsandwich says (17:08):

This is the most horrible band…
that I have ever experienced
I’m sorry, Bon Jovi, all is forgiven!
Ripper says (17:08):

Not to mention that Decaydance just sign any old shit these days
Fightclubsandwich says (17:09):

Poor Vinnie
I know he left FBR like… two years ago?
But I bet he still winces when he reads about shit like this.
Ripper says (17:09):

He got out when it just started to go downhill, yeah
I know, right?
Fightclubsandwich says (17:09):

Didn’t Discount used to be on FBR?
Ripper says (17:09):

Yeah
And Jimmy Eat World, for a brief period
Fightclubsandwich says (17:09):

DISCOUNT
THESE BITCHES
LIFETIME
Ripper says (17:10):

It still breaks my heart that Lifetime are the only good band on that label.
Fightclubsandwich says (17:10):

it’s just kind of blowing my mind
it’s like living in wonderland
Cheshire Katz is mad, of course, we’re all mad here
Ripper says (17:11):

Hahaha, ONCE YOU COME IN, YOU CAN NEVER LEAVEEEEE
Not to mention, bands GET shit when they get signed to FBR these days
Fightclubsandwich says (17:11):

PETE WENTZ WILL CUT OFF YOUR HEAD
Who are you thinking of in particular there?
As in, bands that get shit?
Ripper says (17:11):

VersaEmerge, I used to really like when they were unsigned, then they signed to FBR
and their sound is awful now. They just sound like a Paramore clone
Fightclubsandwich says (17:12):

Oh. Well I’m not familiar with them, but…
Paramore… :/
Didn’t The Academy Is… play shows with the Grabass Charlestons before FBR?
Ripper says (17:13):

Dunno, can’t remember. Either way, I still like TAI…, even if the latest album’s a bit tame.
Fightclubsandwich says (17:13):

Meh. They were never my favourites, but they are fun. I didn’t like Fast Times at all, it just is so boring, it runs right out of your mind
Ripper says (17:14):

also the best quote from this Danzig interview is ‘shaking a baby in his mouth. that’s pretty cool.’
Fightclubsandwich says (17:14):

OH DANZIG
I have the sudden itching to listen to Danzig’s self titled and Almost Here
Ripper says (17:14):

‘occult roots of nazism… every schoolchild should have this book’
LOL
Fightclubsandwich says (17:15):

Going to a school run by Danzig would leave you completely ill equipped for the real world
Ripper says (17:15):

You’d be able to kick a werewolf’s ass
Fightclubsandwich says (17:15):

well, quite possibly
Ripper says (17:15):

And he’d teach you how to have amazing volume in your hair
Fightclubsandwich says (17:16):

AHAHA
you need to be built like Danzig to pull off the Devil Lock, I feel
I tried it once
I have no shame
it looked bad
Ripper says (17:16):

Well, he had the Devilock when he was all skinny like
so that’s not too bad
Fightclubsandwich says (17:17):

well he probably wasn’t as skinny as me, like, ever
Which reminds me, I need to sign up to a gym this summer so I can beat my housemate at arm wrestling
Ripper says (17:17):

This is true
ahahaha
You’re puny, it’s not your fault.
Fightclubsandwich says (17:18):

It is my fault if I refuse to do anything about it!
or… something
Ripper says (17:19):

Maybe… but for you to become incredibly beef would be like Michael Jackson becoming black again, it’s impossible.
Fightclubsandwich says (17:19):

AHAHA
I wasn’t planning on actually going full-Danzig
Ripper says (17:19):

He’s bringing out a new video game, you know?
Fightclubsandwich says (17:19):

Michael Jackson or Danzig?
OMG THERE NEEDS TO BE A GAME WHERE YOU PLAY AS ONE AND FIGHT THE OTHER
Ripper says (17:19):

MJ
Fightclubsandwich says (17:19):

see who can warp the brains of the most children!
Ripper says (17:19):

Not gonna lie, I’d totally buy that
Fightclubsandwich says (17:20):

the real MJ game or my idea?
Ripper says (17:20):

BOTH
They’d have to have special powers in yours though
Like, MJ does a moonwalk and then moon rays fire down on his opponent
and Danzig rips his shirt off and then werewolves come and attack his opponent
I WOULD SO BUY THAT
Fightclubsandwich says (17:21):

That sounds amazing
They would both have secret bases. MJ’s is protected by legions of crazy animals
It’s Neverland, of course
Glenn Danzig lives in a pit under a graveyard and he has zombie butlers
Ripper says (17:22):

They nom on the unsuspecting
Fightclubsandwich says (17:22):

exactly
Morrissey is the final boss, too. You have to shake him out of a big sulk
because his tears are drowning the world
if you’re playing as MJ, you have to make him hpapy and entice him to dance
if you’re playing as Glen Danzig, you have to make him angry and bloodthirsty
IF YOU TRY TO HARM HIM HE PULLS OUT HIS TOMMY GUN FROM THE COVER OF YOU ARE THE QUARRY, MMKAY?
But anyone who wants to kill Morrissey can gtfo please
