then finding out someone else has already told the truth - pretty rubbish? I feel sick :(
I didn't even do anything wrong, I don't think, but it annoyed someone so I tried to make it better but evidently I just made it worse :'(.
I did an interview with Spencer Krug, then emailed some quotes to Kev for a DiS exclusive, but Sunset Rubdown's publicist wasn't very happy about it, so I said I just mentioned it in passing to Kev and he asked for the quotes. THANKS KEV.
http://www.drownedinsound.com/articles/3413518 is taken from my interview.
I missed that bit out :$. I asked Kev if he wanted quotes rather than the other way round.
I told Kev I was going to lie beforehand as well, and when he didn't reply, I assumed he was giving me the go-ahead!
this bit i don't understand?
And I don't really want to quote what he said in case he's reading and it gets me in more trouble. It wasn't anything nasty, he's just saying I should have spoken to him about it first, but either way, the band are getting the publicity, right? I guess I can kind of see where he's coming from but I genuinely didn't mean to do anything wrong.
i think the publicist is just being a bit of a control-freak twunt.
PLEASE NOTE: smile does not indicate that I agree with above statement, simply that you've made me feel a bit better.
I don't know how to rectify this.
otherwise i'd be full of advice
Well, the first bit anyway. Whenever I fuck up I pretend I don't know what the person is talking about. Then I tell them what I did but in a way that they won't possibly understand, with all the bits in the wrong order and lots of unnecessary and irrelevant information. A bit like Vicky Pollard but without the accent and catchphrases. Then they go away and don't ask again.
Or how sorry you feel.
Seriously, I wouldn't worry about it. No ones going to die.
It's just, he was really accommodating and I don't want to fuck up any future interview opportunities. Although I didn't get the guest list places he promised me... Maybe worth a mention?
Probably best to leave it...
