(Note: This post was originally included Preoccupations former band name, Viet Cong. We're pleased to make the correction. For more information, read this open letter to the band by Jon McCurley from before they changed their name.)
(We were also made aware of this disturbing story about Mac DeMarco after our interview. We won't be re-airing this episode or having DeMarco on our show again. In the spirit of transparency we're leaving it online. CITY SLANG believes music scenes should be safe spaces for everyone, and we have zero tolerance for harassment or assault.)
