the monkey power trio: “no one likes this band yet”

My friend Patty in Chicago just bought tickets for something online through Ticketmaster. In an attempt to sell her more tickets, the system asked her what other musical artists she enjoyed. She, of course, said the Monkey Power Trio… Attached is the response she got from Ticketmaster. Apparently not one single person has requested to hear our material through their system in the last 390 days. And, even worse, “nobody has said they like (us) yet.” Which makes it all the more perplexing that revered independent radio station KFJC will be playing our music for four hours straight tomorrow night (starting at 10:00 PM EST). Listen in if you dare… And then write a letter to our friends at WFMU telling them that they’ve been pwned.

    two things-

    they list “you gotta have hope” twice, so sorry to break the news but you have one less popular song than you thought. they do list “butt science” though, so that makes up for it somewhat.

    the last guy that played any MPT 390 days ago was named Mike A, and he played MPT 40+ times if I’m reading that thing correctly. I don’t think it was me, although I could have been in a drunken stupor 40+ times and done that.

    How about 0 Monkey Power Fans Can’t Be Right?

    The site’s apparently down. Either the whole thing’s a prank, or the site crashed due to the tens of thousands of people trying to listen.

    My new theory is that, all this time, we’ve been dealing with the ghost of a former DJ at the station….

    It’s like an episode of the Twilight Zone.

    Pwned for an indie radio ghost.

    I just hope the ghost of John Peel wasn’t involved.

    The site’s still not up.

    There are probably people committing suicide around the country.

    I took a handful of pills from my grandmother’s medicine cabinet a few minutes ago, and I’m starting to feel really cold. I hope the Music Director at KFJC can live with himself.

    Enjoy.

    Clearly, the FCC stepped in and shut the broadcast down. I’m going to have to rethink my opposition to government censorship.

    I propose that the free market could have censored it more effectively.

    apologies to any MPT fans that tuned in and got nothing for the first hour. KFJC had temporary netcast issues for a couple of hours last night, overlapping the first hour of the MPT thing. just one of those things and really bad timing. I suggested at one point the whole thing was just a big hoax, just trying to be funny, and unfortunately it started off looking like just that. apologies again.
    love, KFJC

    While 5 people are reported to have killed themselves during the hour of MPT radio silence, according to the news, 13 killed themselves once the broadcast was reestablished.
