The independent music scene officially called it quits after this tweet.
It is being reported that Garage/Indie/Lo-Fi music as a whole is being discontinued as of Tuesday, April 8th 2014 after Garage God Mick Collins of The Gories, Blacktop and currently The Dirtbombs said he was sick to death of the “sung- through-a-shitty-PA vocal sound” that has dominated the scene for years now.
Many record labels including Hot Dog records have recalled all their catalog after the Garage punk titan made his statement. “We are very sorry for promoting this trend for so long. We are also very sorry for charging 40 dollars for an outdoor festival that did not include Ty Segall”.
Innovator Robert Pollard of Guided By Voices said he was too sorry for creating the trend in the 80’s. “I am deeply sorry young people are into the lo-fi aesthetic. I was just a really poor kid in Ohio who couldn’t afford studio time. I hope my peers forgive me.”
Sex icon and greatest rhythm guitarist of all time Aaron Ohio was relieved when the scene ended this trend saying. “If the garage punk music you like doesn’t require you to wear a leather jacket and chain smoke then it’s not good. If you can wear a tanktop then it ain’t real.” He was very drunk. He prompted the youth to listen to all of Mick Collins bands Blacktop and The Dirtbombs especially and of course the Oblivians for real garage punk and Guided By Voices and The Mice for real indie rock.
