THE VICTIM PARTY


A FORMAL BYE-BYE

It is with heavy, although dieting, hearts that we bid farewell to founding bassist and spritely curmudgeon Adam Cook. As many of our pen-pals have pointed out Adam is leaving team TVP at the worst possible time because we have just released the super excellent 7inch “Hard Drugs and Soft Drinks” via Safe Haven Records.  (Buy your copy today here, or preview it here) And, as many of you have guessed, Adam’s departure was a messy affair, largely due to creative differences regarding the title of the aforementioned 7 inch record. While the five of us that still make up team TVP were content with the title we inevitably settled on, Adam was insistent we call it “Hard Rugs and Soft Dinks.” Never ones to put our good reputation in the gutter and lower ourselves to sexual innuendo, all of Adam’s votes for this distasteful pun were vetoed. He was not happy, and trust me, you wouldn’t have wanted to be a fly on the wall of our rehearsal space the day shit hit the fan. Adam exploded, made Colin cry, and almost came to blows with his own brother Kyle (this of course was a common occurrence, as brothers will be brothers, but on this particular day it was a grim and uncomfortable exchange of words and bravado).

Letting bygones be douches, we wish him all the best, and we know he will excel at whatever he dabbles his calloused little fingers in next. We are all honoured to have played with him and will miss him greatly.  Except for Colin. He’s furious and depressed.
