Comments

lowbrow

i was wondering when we'd get the real story on this. glad everybody got out without jailtime in what i'm sure would have been very, very shitty conditions. i really hope it was all captured on film.

christian

berlin with king khan sounds way more fun to me anyways. oh well, i guess there won't be another american band in india for a while. at least you made your mark.

buried alive

why anyone would subject themselves to an 8 hour battle of the bands is a mystery to me. black lips or not, i couldn't take it.

sang

of course whiskey is involved...

thursty4moore

So, now the Black Lips can't tour in Canada or India. That is what we call a "career ender."

pmw

Wow, it just now occurred to me that Vice Magazine is associated with Vice Records. At least I'm cute..

pmw

Of course, thursty, scandal never helped anyone's career!

Black Lips are bogus

short

ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

bahl

black lips booked the wrong show.
same thing would happen in the US.
imagine if surfjan headlined a slayer show.
theyre morons for getting drunk and naked.
stoopid hispsters have no brains.

Hutch

Rock and fucking roll.

Hey, where will you guys hang out in Berlin? any clubs or venue you will make an appearance to apart from the gig in Kreuzberg?

Danke schön!

Black Lips, you stupid hipster jackasses. You deserve everything you got. When you're in another country, you're stupid hipster sensibilities do not apply. Why not go to Singapore and start vandalizing the venue? See how that works out for you. Did you even bother to check to see if your jackass antics would be ok in that country? Btw, your music sucks anyways. Do you think bands like TV/Radio, Interpol, An Collective etc would have a similar problem? No. Why? Because they're a bunch a white trash jackasses.

...

Who the fuck is An Collective? All these comments from pitchfork readers are weird.

Dingo, Dingus

AMD, try reading the interview. They didn't get in trouble with the cops or the audience - by all accounts the kids loved it. They had a shitty manager who filled them with the fear and tried to kidnap their passports. And seriously, TV/Radio? Do you even like music?

That's what you get for whoring yourselves out to all those big Brand-sponosored shows. Why the fuck were they even playing a Nokia battle of the bands in India? What do you expect?

i guess the comments are so bad because pitchfork doesn't let you spout your stupid opinions (they have enough of their own).

Having spent the summer in southern India (Kerala, Tamil Nadu's neighbor), I can vouch for the conservativism of that area. I'm trying to imagine a show like this going down in that region, and how the people would react. I'm sure every Indian person involved with putting that show on were scared shitless about the cops stepping in, and it makes perfect sense that they were trying to get so much money from the band (cuz it's pretty easy to pay off the cops around there if you have enough money).
Southern India is a beautiful and wonderful place, but they made the right decision to get the fuck out. It was probably the wrong decision to moon the crowd, kiss a bandmate (homosexuality is basically illegal in India), and incite the crowd, but hey, that's rock n roll!

Dingo fuck off. TV/Radio is a great band you moron.

Ding Dang Doodle

If disliking third-rate doo-wop by the whitest bunch of blacks this side of the white house makes one a moron, then you can call me Corky.

Randy

I really hope someone starts a band called TV/Radio after reading these comments.

jols

I loathe tv on the radio but I'm sure tv/radio would be great.

Justin
