Senryu Responds to CD Review

First I'd like to thank you for reviewing our DEMO. I suppose the fault is not in our stars, but that we only have a demo. We stuck our heads up, and caught the axe. Never have I heard such a malicious review of a local artist, nor have I seen such a pointed attack on one aspect of a performance. I think you really missed the essence of our music. Post-punk? We're pop, no pretense of punk, pre, post or otherwise, hence the "coyingly effete" vocals. Rufus Wainwright, Jeff Buckley? Not to mention the last track..."Maybe on the Moon," punk? I wish you had waited to print a review until after seeing our live show. I'm sure that when you see us play, your characterization of us will seem woefully off base. I hope that having a "virtually unlistenable demo" will not preclude us from further mention in your paper. As long time readers, local artists, and aspiring scenesters, we had hoped to count the Metro Pulse as an ally. Et tu, Poptart

Thanks for supporting insufferable and piteous local music
