Muscles is really, really mad

It’s been a hectic few days for Muscles. First he set tongues wagging when he posted an irate blog entry venting his frustration at being dropped from the Nevereverland lineup by his label Modular. Not surprisingly they were quick to refute his claim, saying he was still on the bill and they hoped he would perform, but Muscles isn’t backing down.

He’s hit back once again, linking through to a story on our sister site inthemix in the process, telling his fans not to believe his label’s “silly press releases”. Perhaps even more bizarre is that Muscles has also taken to replying to individual messages posted by disenchanted fans on his blog, and he’s also vowed he’ll be quitting music entirely! “i’m quitting the music business altogether,” reads his latest comment. “and you’re all to blame.”

Coincidentally FL had an interview with his labelmate Julian Hamilton of The Presets earlier today, and he had his own view on the Muscles vs Modular hullabaloo, choosing to take the high road despite being drawn into the ordeal. “I really like Muscles, I think he’s a real talent,” Julian said. “He’s a really lovely guy. I think a few people thought [his comments] was maybe a diss on us, but I don’t think it was. I think it was just more of a diss on the current climate… perhaps!”
