The Parochial School Boys - Tearing the Playhouse Down
Label mates "The Parochial School Boys" want to steal label mates song and call it their own.
By: The Rebel Cause Record Label
One of the songs in question, "The Rebel Cause" recently released on the album "The Man. The Myth. The Legend." by David John Ricci, has grasped their attention. 'Lucy', a young lady who prides herself as an occasional band member, sighted that "The Parochial School Boys" thought the aforementioned Artist was a "glutton". Referring to his recently released 3 album set. Apparently, they felt he had to much material and they should have custody of some of part it, namely "The Rebel Cause". In an effort to retain the song for themselves they have called radio stations, harassed tabloid television producers as well as filing unfounded law suits against the Label and the Artist who wrote the song, claiming it is they who wrote the song. In the lawsuit, it was adamantly suggested they, "The One and Only TRUE F$%*ING PUNK BAND!" should be the face of the record label that derived it's name from the trademark song and as such, should be the only ones to perform or claim credit to being the actual scribe.
The record label eluded to nature of the bands demeanor in a statement today, regarding the searing affair: "Handling a band like 'The Parochial School Boys' is a delicate operation. They are complicit and bring about a degree of fear, leaving the general public with certain misgivings. This is their way of life. They create their art because of who they are and it in turn, it dictates the way in which they take on the world. For this reason, we stand by their actions as Artists. It is their right to be this belligerent, it is, who they are." The Label went on to say, that David John Ricci did indeed write the song and is taking the high road by offering to license the song to them at no cost.
Apparently, this was not good enough for this young troop of troubadours, during a meeting planned by the label as a peaceful negotiation, the band tried to bludgeon him with a crate of his own albums. He responded by throwing them out his front window and into the street, where the band proceeded to block traffic by getting undressed and defecating in public. The police arrived, but no charges were brought up. No one thought it would be appropriate to chase the juvenile delinquents into the alleyway, sans skivvies.
These young lads have a long path ahead of them and they are choosing to tear down anything and everything to get there. As promised by the Label, there will be a single released this fall, by The Parochial School Boys, entitled "Berlin".
As for the Artist they were trying to openly steal from, he is currently producing them, as well as several other artists on the label. He is working on an upcoming release of his own, along with three books and two movies. He overseas A&R at the Label with long time collaborator, Punk Legend, Pete McClanahan. McClanahan, the person responsible for signing The Parochial School Boys, regardless of having known them and occasionally finding himself privy to their antics, was quoted as saying about the matter, "Let those little Sh#ts, try to steal it, I have no problem taking my size 11 boot and jamming it straight up their @sses." In the days following the event, he added a label press conference, "The reason we signed the band was to show the world what it lost or may have never had, a real punk band. They have license to do whatever they want. No one is safe from their wrath."
