They sound arrogant as fuck. The reason why Smallman Records mights not be doing totally fine is probably because bands like these never tour.
I'm pretty sure it's just a joke, Propagandhi are very grateful for everything Smallman has done for them.
Anyway, I've known for a few months now, but it's good it's finally going out in the open. It was the only really good thing I liked about the Winnipeg music scene and to see it go is such a shame.
Also, there is a 95% chance I will be writing a book about the history of the label/it's bands for school. Mostly because I love Smallman and what it's done for Winnipeg, but also because I can't think of anything else I can work on for 10 months and not hate. If anyone thinks this is a good idea, I'd love to hear from you because not only do I have to write it, I also have to attempt to market it, haha.
