You Me and Interviews About My Old Band

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (09/28/11)
In a new interview, Augustine Rampolla (ex-You Me and Everyone We Know) discusses his new band, The Little Indians, regret over the statements made during You, Me & Everyone We Know's demise, and a possible split with more ex-YM&EWK members.
From the InterviewI really regret it. I made statements, and I and everyone else formally of the band stands by those statements. When we finally came to the decision, we all agreed that we were going to make a brief statement. Two days later Ben came out with a whole elaborate write up with half-truths. It just wasnít fair for him to say that. He made us out to look like we were these ungrateful dudes who couldnít get along with him because he was an alcoholic. I donít want to get into it, but we were really upset. The other guys were on tour with Hellogoodbye hanging out and told me that we had to respond. Iím the one who went online and made the post, so it looked like it was me saying these things. But really, all the statements I made were from everyone. We all talked about it. We had to tell the fans what happened, but they were on a four hour drive, so I went online and did it. Looking back, maybe we should have left it alone. The statement we made really upset fans even more. There are some things that outsiders donít need to know. There was way too much stuff that got out that should not have been public knowledge. I would definitely say that I regret it. All we can do is move forward.

Listening to YMAEWK's full length in context of the turmoil gives it a much more interesting undertone, intended or otherwise.

Also, this is a good little tune. Look forward to more from them.

Thiiiiiis guy. But seriously, I am so sick of hearing about YMAEWK drama. Young Indians sound pretty solid, Ben is doing his thing, whatever.

Yes. And this is not leaving well enough alone either...
We've all moved on. Shitty situation, but be the bigger man and move on. Stop responding and put together a Little Indians album

Statements like those that were made by the band, were less about the music & more about the band politics that (as he said) don't need to be heard. Having every detail of why you broke up sometimes let's people have an opinion that taints their perception. Too much information & too many write ups just make it never go away....I now respect & appreciate when bands keep it short & simple, it never changes the music =)

I feel like he is just bringing back the past again now by saying his side of the story in that little blurb.
