Following our posted rebuttal
of Vincent Moon's harsh criticisms of Arcade Fire's
mainstream mentality, the band's manager, Scott Rodger, hastily responded to their detractor/former associate (special thanks to our Facebook follower Cleiton from Brazil for the heads-up!). Apparently, there are mutual feelings of distaste. Moon simply stated that Arcade Fire and their management were "not good people". Rodger replied assault on the videographer directly addressed his inadequacies.
Here's the manager's response:
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?
[Ed. Note: Ouch.
Well than, we'll leave it up to you to decide who's at fault.
