Ben Weasel Responds

Posted by: Matthew Tsai (08/13/11)
In a lengthy new blog post, Ben Weasel reveals his side of the story regarding the aftermath of Screeching Weasel's SXSW fiasco earlier this year, including the departure of most of the band members, the cancellation of Weaselfest and the future of the band.
BlogSo to reiterate, the band never split up for a second; I merely pink-slipped the dead weight and methodically replaced them with the meanest, leanest lineup of stand-up mofos I could find, every last one of them as disgusted as I am with this ludicrous show of puritanical finger-wagging over the past few months. The boys have been replaced by men. The ex-Weasels didn’t give a damn about what went down on stage at SXSW until the Internet told them they ought to. Then, after not giving a shit for two days, they suddenly grew a conscience. Rest assured, fans, no such weak-minded milksops are in the current lineup.

Think of it this way – I’m taking back the reins from the classless, spineless, frightened children who dragged Screeching Weasel’s name through the mud with their dishonest, ass-covering press release; and all the cheap shot cowards who kicked me while I was down are getting a horseshoe straight up the ass!

Also not a fan of the band, but I imagine I'd be laughing much harder at the heavy stream of douchery this guy's spewing right now if I were.

He makes himself out to be a victim when he punched two women and a couple security guys on stage. Stop acting like your ex-band members are the ones at fault here.

Complete and total delusional douchebag.

Be an adult and accept responsibility for your actions. Stop trying so hard to be "punk" and be a man.
