For instance the MySpace page they had wasn't them, it was taken over by warp instead of being shut down.
I doubt even their twitters are ran by the boys, warp probably has it in the contract that they (warp) will handle all social media themselves.
Honestly.. I feel like even though the boys signed up for it.. Warp have really bastardized thir image, from being reclusive.. Internet avoiding guys initially, to being commercialised to fuck.
Remember back in the day seeing that 'the Internet is evil - wake up' gif and think whoa.. Yeah these guys are really wise and insightful.. You had to physically write to them, you had to actually go to the record shops to find geogaddi and represses.. Next thing you know music70 and boardsofcanada sites are all redirected to warp or bleep to buy merch, totally destroying their vibe they created
Do you think that Warp commercialized them by making them do internet troll stuff?
I'm really confused by all of it honestly. On one hand, you know that they (or Warp) are aware that people will follow them down rabbit holes like these, but one the other hand, what's the endgame?
I too want to know where this is heading. Hopefully to actual music
