Muscles is really, really mad

It’s been a hectic few days for Muscles. First he set tongues wagging when he posted an irate blog entry venting his frustration at being dropped from the Nevereverland lineup by his label Modular. Not surprisingly they were quick to refute his claim, saying he was still on the bill and they hoped he would perform, but Muscles isn’t backing down.

He’s hit back once again, linking through to a story on our sister site inthemix in the process, telling his fans not to believe his label’s “silly press releases”. Perhaps even more bizarre is that Muscles has also taken to replying to individual messages posted by disenchanted fans on his blog, and he’s also vowed he’ll be quitting music entirely! “i’m quitting the music business altogether,” reads his latest comment. “and you’re all to blame.”

Coincidentally FL had an interview with his labelmate Julian Hamilton of The Presets earlier today, and he had his own view on the Muscles vs Modular hullabaloo, choosing to take the high road despite being drawn into the ordeal. “I really like Muscles, I think he’s a real talent,” Julian said. “He’s a really lovely guy. I think a few people thought [his comments] was maybe a diss on us, but I don’t think it was. I think it was just more of a diss on the current climate… perhaps!”

Finally...

If we're all to blame I think we can all give ourselves a pat on the back.

Somehow I don't blame myself, I blame him for not coming up with any good music.

I would love to think this is just an stunt to draw attention to both muscles and nevereverland but its sounding a little too self destructive for that!

This is hilarious.

Muscles is far more entertaining as a professional whinger and shit stirrer than as a musician.

Well, I guess he's going to have every opportunity to spend his Summer drinking lemonade in hammocks.

Looks like his schedule might be on the quiet side...

Fuck he's been such an immature little drama queen lately! Don't really like him all that much anymore. He should get his estrogen levels checked out.

True story. He is more moody than MAB and Dekar put together.

this guy has something seriously wrong with him.
i can imagine him having suspecting his girlfriend was cheating on him and he kills her or something crazy like that.

So he is taking his ball and going home...slightly Primary School level of emotional stability there? but its the emotionally unstable that write the best songs, so it is a slight disappointment.

Muscles is an amazing talent!

Amazing talent...? Well that is just plain incorrect..

The only thing amazing about Muscles is the fact he ever got a recording contract to start with.
