If you have been following ASM’s Mixcloud or radio page found here, you may have noticed that a couple of my earlier broadcasts are gone. While I cringe at making public statements like this, I feel I need to be transparent in my decision to remove the first two broadcasts.
I have supported Mr.Kitty since at least 2017. When Forrest released his statement about his interactions with a minor, I refrained from judgement but continued to monitor the situation.
Now that the full extent of the conversation has gone public, it is impossible NOT to make an informed judgement call, and it saddens me to say, I can no longer support this artist. Mr.Kitty is in 2 of my 3 posted setlists, I have decided to do the right thing and remove these broadcasts. I will attempt to re-stream them without his music in the near future (likely Friday, July 2nd in place of doing this weeks stream) and I will not include Mr.Kitty in further sets.
I have already unfollowed pages both on Facebook and on Bandcamp.
With that said, there will be no new Miss. Cellaneous broadcast this week. This is not an easy decision, I put a lot of time and heart into those sets, but this is why I keep set lists. I would rather double the work than support someone who knowingly engaged with a minor. Not everyone will be happy with my decision, but it is my decision to make at the end of the day and I feel this is the right one for now. I hope that Forrest, and those affected, are all able to find peace.
In the meantime, DJ Johnny Blankface has uploaded his new set to Apres Le Bar, and I highly suggest checking it out.
