Good on them for sacking him *before* the allegations were even public knowledge, that's rare.

but then not saying anything about those allegations to anyone?

article makes it sound like he only got fired bc of the guy who was not already friends with him

I'm honestly not sure if it's all that important to reach out to anyone except whoever was directly affected? Otherwise all you're doing is letting your fans know how correct and righteous you were to kick him out.

or warning other women to stay away from him

na (NA), Friday, 13 October 2017 20:02 (two years ago) link

OK, that's fair.

a serious and fascinating fartist (Simon H.), Friday, 13 October 2017 20:03 (two years ago) link

yeah i get not wanting to publicly shame someone (especially someone you were close with), but an abuser will often just keep abusing if there's not something specific put out there.

tylerw, Friday, 13 October 2017 20:11 (two years ago) link

I suspect someone argued this exact point with them, hence the public clarification 1.5 years on

Not directly related but obv relevant

I've heard things over the years about MM but nothing specific, vague things about him being a 'creep' & a predator. Behavior that was completely at odds with the 'take it easy' 'killing the vibe' pose from him. Several years ago some friends played with Real Estate & walked in on MM doing a ton of coke right before Real Estate's set. 'Duckrails' is a name I've heard often.

Pitchfork reporting Gaslamp Killer raped 2 women, Millions of Dead Posers posted on Facebook and said it was true

Feel like this next week is going to be stomach churning

damn it

Erotic Wolf (crüt), Saturday, 14 October 2017 02:45 (two years ago) link

first heard rumours about Alex Calder being a creep in montreal ages ago

flopson, Saturday, 14 October 2017 04:49 (two years ago) link

"Creepy" seems like an imprecise term for people who are alleged to have assaulted people. I guess this is just what people say when they don't want to give details.

Treeship, Saturday, 14 October 2017 06:00 (two years ago) link

oh i didn't mean to imply i didn't know details. it was an open secret for at least the last... wanna say 2 years?

flopson, Saturday, 14 October 2017 06:28 (two years ago) link

I remember hearing this about Matt Mondanile some time ago... like 2009, 2010? It was after a tour in Australia. And then another independent account a few years later...

"The world of 2017 is really getting me down, time for something lighter, oh here's a thread on the delightful theme tune to Ducktails. Oh... oh..." 😔 😡

Calling someone out over their Twitter likes is a bit unfair though as I know a lot of people who use it as a bookmarking system rather than for agreeing with a Tweet's sentiment.

Not saying that's the case here but there's been plenty of threads about it in the last week now that other user's likes are showing up in people's feeds.

groovypanda, Friday, 26 January 2018 08:09 (two years ago) link

It's shite tbh and we should bh

I mean, he admits he is an “abuser” in that facebook statement and kind of pleads for a second chance. He apologizes to Julia Holter. Maybe it’s not sincere — I wouldn’t want my female friends going near him — but it seems like a weird opportunity to pile on again. More people know Matt Mondanile is a predator than can name even one Ducktails song—he’s done.

treeship 2, Friday, 26 January 2018 13:32 (two years ago) link

It is a very self-pitying post, I’ll admit. But he’s trash—it shouldn’t be surprising.

treeship 2, Friday, 26 January 2018 13:35 (two years ago) link

Ok screenshotting the donation page in the plea for absolution is pretty lol/transparently self-serving

two years pass...

So I finally got around to listening to The Flower Lane and it's good!
Too bad this guy's a sex pest, though.
Any recommendations for music like this, but not by a sex pest?
