Although it seemed to generate a lot of discussion, I want to apologize for the challenge I issued earlier today to Recess Records and Asian Man Records regarding Screeching Weasel and The Queers. I remain personally appalled by Joe Queer’s defense of Darren Wilson, his use of the term Obongo regarding the president, things said by Ben on the pop punk message board regarding trans women, and things that happened when Screeching Weasel played at SXSW. At the same time, I recognize that a better way to go about this would be more thoughtful discussion directly with the people involved. It is unfortunate that what I wrote ended up in hate-filled arguments and people talking about boycotting Recess. I have nothing but good will toward Mike and Todd. Ill will toward them and their labels was far from my intent in starting a discussion, and I take full responsibility for any harm it cause them today. I hope the parties affected can forgive me and understand my intent was not to harm them. As for Screeching Weasel and The Queers, I also recognize that there are members of these bands who are not Joe or Ben and I should have been more clear in my comment regarding those members. As for the bands themselves, I will have trouble supporting them in any way as long as their frontmen continue to say the things they say online. However, I realize that what I wrote may have come off as call to blind hatred or boycott toward them without considering their own intentions in their comments and actions, for which I am also sorry.

Forget the Ice Bucket Challenge. I challenge two labels, Recess Records and Asian Man Records to completely disassociate with sexist, racist, and homophobic punk bands like The Queers and Screeching Weasel. It is ridiculous that anyone legitimate would be working with them to release their music after the long-term pattern (note: not isolated incidents) of sexist, racist, and homophobic crap they spew online and offline. Mike and Todd, you can do better. Mike, the things Joe Queer writes on his facebook and says at shows goes completely against your mission of working “with bands that are ANTI-RACIST, ANTI-SEXIST, ANTI-PREJUDICE, and who support the ideas of peace and unity” that has always been one of the most inspiring aspects of your label. And Todd, Screeching Weasel’s current behavior goes far beyond “shock punk” or whatever the hell he thinks it is.
I also grew up a fan of Screeching Weasel and The Queers and it took me a while to come to terms with my fandom vs. the current actions of the band members. But as isolated incidents that I tried to chalk up to people saying stupid things or doing stupid things slowly became patterns of sexist racist and homophobic behavior over the course of the last 5 years I have been forced associate these bands with nothing but their sexism, racism, and homophobia.
There is a place in music for shock, and there is a place in art for free speech. But there is also a place in music for calling on others to stop giving power and a voice to people spewing hate speech, and so I am calling on you Recess and Asian Man to do better and disassociate with The Queers and Screeching Weasel.

We never sat down to talk about what the next step was. The dream, however simple it might sound, is you can release records when you feel like you’re done with them. That feels old-fashioned almost, because that’s the way the record business works where you have to pump stuff out to stay in the spotlight. I think there are bands that have proven themselves by chugging along at their own pace and touring a decent amount.
Black Wine's new album Yell Boss is out TODAY! You can order it from our website or iTunes now. Here is a great video of Black Wine playing No Reason at their house*. Look for Black Wine on tour soon!
*okay, J doesn’t live there but you get the idea.
