They spam me and other bloggers and some music journos with their new newsletter. I take umbrage for being spammed and they explain how they live in a reality distortion field:
Have a read of the actual email and you might notice we’re actually one of Dublin’s more reputable music PR companies offering you some news and a few odds and ends of some of our artists. Spam nothing, we put you in our address book as readers of yer blog.
Obviously the shared brain cell was going for the NCT today. Byes.
Update: Lakota don’t seem to be able to get their story straight.
First this explanation:
I merely supplied our new, young intern with some addresses for blogs that may be interested in what we were offering. It was intended to offer Irish bloggers free tickets, mp3s, and videos before other people get them in the media.
Then this explanation:
Our new, young intern was entrusted with the job of updating our database of contacts.
We deal with press, radio and blogs in general. Rather than request emails from people and seek approval for sending them a newsletter, he swiped them from somewhere.
It’s also been pointed out to me that they put me on the guest list for Halfset so I’ve happily removed the Halfset video from this blog and will not mention the band here again.
And I do not take lightly threats of legal action from their supporters in the comments of this post.
