FoW's "German Boycott"


So I saw this in the Irish Examiner:

Quote:

Fountains of Wayne plan Germany boycott
27/06/2004 - 13:33:08

Rockers Fountains of Wayne have threatened to drop Germany from their European tour - because German fans don't like their music.

The Stacy’s Mom hitmakers enjoy touring the globe, but the audience turn-outs at past German concerts are so poor they have refused to return.

Singer Adam Schlesinger says: "We generally like it everywhere except Germany. We've been going there for years and we can't seem to get any fans.

"Everywhere else we go, we see the fruits of our labour - the audiences get bigger.

"We've had sold out shows in London, Dublin and Amsterdam, and we go to Germany and there's like 50 people."

What do you make of this? Sounds a little suspicious to me...not like something Fountains of Wayne would say.

Hmmm, interesting.

Living in Australia, I know what the loyal German fans will feel like if this boycott takes place.

:D:D:D

That does seem a little odd to me, maybe that is why they don't come to Ohio, they could have boycotted us years ago....hehehe.
I do wonder where it is all coming from though

That's nothing. The Smashing Pumpkins, of which I am a member, stopped going there years ago. They wouldn't stop throwing cups.



I\'m fine.

Fow and Germany


That reminds me seeing Fountains of Wayne in Brussels (Belgium) only few miles from Germany.

I remember Chris saying they were pretty happy to have left Germany because that was pretty odd to play there one day in front of like 50 people (half of them not having a clue who they were) and the very next day playing in a pretty crowded place and singalong crowd in Brussels.

Guys, come back to Brussels anytime !

The French people are cool, I went there 15 years ago and had a terrific time.

I am sure Fountains of Wayne love 'em, Fountains of Wayne are lovers not haters :D:D (The grumpy image thing is just a big front, hehe).

its not racism, but it sure is stupidity, especially from someone who probably knows fuck all about us. there's good things, and bad things everywhere mister, just focus on your country and its current issues before slagging others for no reason.
