This Week... I Will Go Down With This Ship

"Pay for our tour managers..."

"Happiness seems to be loneliness" - Tomcraft

Blimey, time goes slow right? Who'd of thought we'd be two months into this sh*t? Anyway, bet you are probably all sick to death of talking about the 'C' word, so I won't...

Instead I'm going to dedicate this article to the very special, spectacularly named child of Elon Musk and Grimes. Now, given the circumstances of these two as individuals and that the pregnancy announcement was made via what looked like a film poster for the latest sci-fi blockbuster, we all knew that there was going to be some tomfoolery and sh*thousery afoot when it came to baby names.

What about the f**kin' tour managers yeah? How are they surviving out there at the moment?

Well this lot of tight, arrogant dj's think that you, the general public, should be donating to them. What do you think? There are so many levels of wrong to this that it doesn't even begin to unearth the vast level of misconception and miscalculation behind this ridiculous campaign. All I'm saying is that if you are being £10,000 + per gig to press some buttons on a CDJ for a living and then you have the audacity not to share some of that with the manager who looks after you throughout the ups and downs of the proceeding....

Well then, you are an A grade 'C' word. I'm not talking about coronavirus... 

Here's the interweb...
