-- Hype-man of Intolerance Records band Wasteful Consumption Patterns (WCP), The Gimp, was hospitalized over the weekend. He suffered from multiple lacerations and severe abrasions caused by a fall from the roof of his group home. Staff told us he believed the roof was his stage. The Gimp suffers from delusional hysteria and bouts of narcissistic rage.
"It was time for meds and we couldn't find him nowhere [sic]. We figured he was up on the roof again." Said Maria Jenkins, Caregiver at Whispering Pines Center for Assisted Living. She went on to explain that this is a fairly common occurrence in the time leading up to a performance with WCP. "He [sic] bigger than any of the guys we got working here so we try to let him do what he want. It takes us a week to get him to calm down after he go out with that band." It's unclear to us why the Center would release him into the care of the band.
We tried contacting Whispering Pines Executives regarding the incident but nobody was available for comment.
We spoke with David Gorby, Vice-President of Sales & Maketing for Intolerance Records about The Gimp's involvement with the group. "He doesn't work for us. Apparently he's one of those rabid, insistent fans who has become a staple at every WCP show. He started going to shows back in '99 for Solder and has never missed one for Khrome." He went on to say that Intolerance Records is not responsible for the actions of The Gimp and holds no liability for any damages, psychological, physical or otherwise.
