"METAL BAND GOES AFTER CRITIC" --CKY in NY POST'S Gossip Section...
This, to me, was absolutelyfuckingridiculous.....
METAL BAND GOES AFTER CRITIC
August 12, 2005 -- ROLLING Stone writer Jenny Eliscu has complained to Island/Def Jam chairman L.A. Reid that one of his label's bands, CKY, is waging a harassment campaign against her — including the wish that she "die soon" — because she panned their new album.
Eliscu's one-star review of CKY's "An Answer Can Be Found" stated, "Perhaps the most noteworthy thing about CKY is the ardor of their fans, the CKY Alliance," who "bombarded this magazine with p - - - - d-off e-mails after we gave the band's previous album a two-star review.
"Here we go again. The presence of [MTV prankster] Bam Margera's brother Jess on drums may keep CKY aligned with the skate-punk scene, but 'An Answer Can Be Found' is mind-numbing stoner metal, with ginormous power chords, repetitive vocals and overwrought lyrics."
After the review appeared last month, CKY, which is short for Camp Kill Yourself, singled out Eliscu for abuse.
"I was besieged by phone calls from fans after singer Deron Miller posted my home number on the Internet," Eliscu wrote in an e-mail to Reid obtained by PAGE SIX. "In addition, he gave a widely circulated statement to [rock Web site] Blabbermouth saying that he hopes I die very soon.
"In the past few days, I've been deluged by copies of the new CKY record, sent to my home address and purchased by Deron Miller from a variety of sites online . . .
"I'm sure you can understand how I would find all of this quite disturbing. I've spoken with [CKY publicist] Lauren Schneider, who has done her best to keep me from blowing a gasket over this. Nonetheless, I wanted to be certain you knew what was going on with this band on your label.
"Their behavior teeters perilously close to harassment and, according to Rolling Stone's lawyer, could also be considered criminal. I would have just let it go if the problem had stopped a couple weeks back, but I can't understand why they continue to harass me, in my home. It is entirely unacceptable."
Rolling Stone spokeswoman Nora Haynes said: "This is a serious situation in which a well-respected journalist has been victimized through harassment, including death threats, for doing her job. This seems like a rather sad attempt to promote a band who should . . . rely more on their talent."
A spokeswoman for Island/Def Jam declined comment yesterday.
you would think....

Hey everyone, the new album has been out a little over 2 weeks and it's doing great. It debuted at number 35 on the U.S. Billboard Charts, and it has gotten great reviews from alot of media, including Alternative Press.
Unfortunatly, not all media outlets seem to feel this way. This past weekend Rolling Stone put up a review of An Ånswer Can Be Found on their website, rollingstone.com. The reviewer, Jenny Eliscu, gave but a paragraph to the album, in what may be the worst review of anything in the history of reviews. She gave the new album ONE star. This didn't sit well with the Alliance, and we started a massive e-mail campaign to Rolling Stone, expressing our disbelief and anger about this horrible "journalism", just as we did when IDR was released and they gave it 2 stars. You can read the review here
. Well, the Alliance managed to get RS.com to take the review down late Monday night, and the page read "This Album Not Rated". We all assumed this was a great victory and a new, intelligent review would be on the way. This was not the case however, as yesterday evening Jenny Eliscu's review was put back up. Now we need extra support. I'm asking any of you willing to please send intelligent, thought-out e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org, letting them know that a one star review of this album is unacceptable. They called us out, and we will take a stand.
On another note, Blabbermouth.net
posted a decent 7.0 out of 10 review of An Ånswer Can Be Found. This reviewer actually listened to the album, and at least made some thought out points as to why he felt the album was lacking. This is fine, and it was a decent review, but the Blabbermouthers who post at this website, who have a strong dislike for CKY because of various other news bits that were posted on that website, have made it their goal to make the album the lowest rated in Blabbermouth history. In order to change this, members of the Alliance are registering to the site and giving the album a perfect 10. To do this, just sign up at Blabbermouth.net. Alot of people aren't getting their confirmation e-mails after registering. If this happens, click the "Retrieve Password" button and enter your e-mail. An e-mail should be sent to you immediatly with a link to click to activate your account.
I thank all of you for your assistance, now is the time that we as an Alliance once again show our power to force change.

Cky/RockAdio tour press release
CKY HEADLINES “ROCK ADIO TOUR” SPONSORED BY ADIO FOOTWEAR
CKY’s new album, AN ANSWER CAN BE FOUND, in stores June 28th
(June 23, 2005 – New York, NY) Island recording group CKY, whose long-awaited album, AN ANSWER CAN BE FOUND, will be released on June 28th, will commence their first major North American tour in 2 years when they kick off the Rock Adio Tour on August 8th at Soma in San Diego. (See complete tour dates below.) In advance of tour dates, members of the hyper-revolutionary fanbase known as the CKY Alliance will be able to purchase tickets before they go on sale to the general public. The exclusive pre-sale begins Friday morning, June 24th, at 10:00 a.m. (ET) where fans can log on to www.ckymusic.com.
The 5-week Rock Adio Tour, with special guests Fireball Ministry and The Knives, is sponsored by Adio Footwear, makers of skateboard footwear for such luminaries as Tony Hawk, Bam Margera and creators of the CKY shoe, to be introduced this summer. For further information, please go to the following Internet websites: www.rockadio.com, and www.adiofootwear.com. CKY will headline the 8th annual Skate Fest on September 9th at The Palladium in Worcester, MA.
CKY’s confrontational approach to live performance and recording comes together once again on AN ANSWER CAN BE FOUND. The new album was written by CKY and produced by guitarist Chad I Ginsburg, with the first single “Familiar Realm,” hitting the radio charts. On Friday, May 25th, M2 premiered CKY’s A Very Special Special.
The CKY Alliance - "The New Generation of Change," as the band's legions of followers were recently dubbed in the official website www.ckymusic.com by Ginsburg - has generated upwards of a half-million cumulative sales of CKY's various CDs and one DVD. Among these are their three Island Records releases: CKY, Vol. 1 (June 2001); Infiltrate.Destroy.Rebuild (September 2002); and Infiltrate.Destroy.Rebuild: The Video Album (Deluxe Edition) (November 2003, DVD).
