The title of the NME article was Jet launch attack on The Strokes! … So I think to myself, oh snap, someone’s about to get Von Bondied. I click the link, and here’s the relevant info:
JET have launched an attack on THE STROKES, claiming that the New Yorkers have “lost any credibility”.
The Aussie rockers took the swipe following Julian Casablancas and co.’s recent comment to Rolling Stone saying: “Jet makes me not want to make music.”
Jet drummer Chris Cester retorted, saying: “They have lost any credibility from me.” He added: “I think they made a pretty good record, but I can’t listen to it anymore because I don’t really dig ‘em anymore [as people].”
Does the response from the Jet dude read to anybody as “an attack?” I mean come on, we’re grasping for another indie rock fight. Can we just have one at a time?
[This is what happens during a slow news week, dear readers.]
