Word is getting around town that Bjorn's bass was stolen last night. A lot of people seem to think that this blog might have had something to do with it. Let me say this in no uncertain terms. I don't care how much you are on our side: if you stole Bjorn's bass last night, and you are reading this, you need to give Bjorn his bass back right away. We may hate the music of Peter Bjorn and John, but we believe they have the right to play it. Besides, if we succeed this weekend in stopping Peter Bjorn and John -- and, despite the reverses of the past twenty-four hours, I still am holding out hope that we might -- I wouldn't want them to be able to say afterwards that we accomplished it only through subterfuge.
Anyway, that's enough said about that. I want to be clear that my problem with Peter Bjorn and John is purely musical, not personal.
(On the other hand: I was dismayed to read in comments that at a show yesterday at Red Eyed Fly, they "thanked" this blog. Is that true? Can anyone else vouch for this? Let me know in comments. If so, it's pretty damn petty. Not quite worth stealing a bass over, but still.)
