Independent- und Musikvideo-Regisseur Vincent Moon schießt gegen die Allerweltslieblinge Arcade Fire:
„They’re not good people, that’s it. And I don’t mean the whole band—I mean the leaders of the band and their management. What I hate about the band now is that people call them an indie band and they’re not an indie band, they are a mainstream band. Maybe they’re on an indie label but that doesn’t mean anything. Those guys are just making things on a very big level, a very mainstream way of thinking. The way they deal with their business is really disgusting for me. The way they deal with things is awful. Their management are awful, awful people, and I know what I’m talking about. I have some really terrible stories with them.“
(Vincent Moon in einem Interview mit Eye Weekly über Arcade Fire)
P.S.: Der Manager von Arcade Fire, Scott Rodgers hat die Vincent Moon – Kritik übrigens bereits kommentiert:
I’m one of the so called “not good people”. Can we get the camera equipment you stole from the band returned yet? Perhaps if your drug habit could be contained you may actually be able to complete a film. We should have taken advice from our other friends who worked with you who advised us not to. But we thought it would be great. Unfortunately we were wrong. Your move to “art films”, that wouldn’t by any chance be circumstantial as no one is prepared to hire or commission you any more? Telling the truth. It’s not that hard Vincent.
Now can we get our equipment back? thanks,
