"I guarantee there are more offensive MySpace pages than the Resevior Tips'," says Rowland Bluntz. His band's Web page was recently deleted by MySpace administrators. "Sure, we had sperms swimming across the page, but I think it was the meat curtains pic that might have done it." He says his band wasn't warned and that they lost over a thousand "friends" who were linked to their page. "None of our material was meant to be taken offensively. Yes, some of it [was] rude and crude, but we are a punk rock band!" The band's logo is a cartoon of a dripping, dancing condom.
Bluntz believes a complaint from a single MySpace user is responsible for the deletion.
"It was this religious freak that goes by [screen name] Compureflame03 that threw a fit. It's funny how she can find our site offensive...but her site could be considered just as offensive; her headline is 'Jesus Is Lord,' and she has blood dripping down her page! And if you read what her profile says, it's full of hypocrisy; [she's] a woman who is offended by a music site's content who also lists Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back as one of her favorite movies."
The Resevior Tips appear September 23 at O'Connell's.
