Ben here, the drummer from Teen Hygiene.

I just wanted to clarify the reasoning behind our decision to not be on this comp. First, I want to say that I think Olly is awesome, and is doing a really good thing by putting this out. I appreciate how hard it is to put out an independent release, especially when trying to keep the price down to make it accessible to people who might not buy it otherwise. And I appreciate the desire to reach people who don’t go to punk/hardcore shows.

The sole problem for me is that the compilation will be available exclusively at JB HiFi, at least initially. This is problematic because I care about worker’s rights. To support a company with an ongoing record of harming worker’s rights is in direct conflict with this. This year alone, JB HiFi have consistently refused to negotiate with any union about the shitty wages they offer even their full-time employees, and have harassed workers who are members of unions. I think this sucks. This is in addition to their substantial role in the closing down of a number of independent music stores around the country. This is a massive multi-national chain, which posted a sales revenue of $AUD2.7 billion last year. I do my best not to give money to other massive multi-nationals that harm local independent business, so I have a similar problem with doing anything that supports this one. Actually, even more of a problem, since they directly harm something that I particularly care about, local independent record stores. I want these to continue to exist.

I realise that having a single track on a reasonably priced compilation might not seem like much of a contribution to the company’s profits, and that it might not seem like having that track removed does anything much about the problem. But, every time the compilation is mentioned, this provides advertising for JB HiFi. And, even worse, this advertising is targeted at people that identify with an underground subculture, hardcore punk music. If these relatively free thinking people can be made apathetic about supporting an exploitative form of business and the commodification of their music, I think it’s really worrying. And I don’t want to support it. What I really wanted was for Olly to reconsider the distribution through JB HiFi, in which case I would have been happy to be a part of it. But, since he wasn't able to change the distribution strategy at this point, which I understand might have been a massive pain in the ass or meant a price increase to make it feasible, we asked to be taken off it instead.

Hope everyone understands this is nothing against Olly or the comp in general, it’s just us doing what we can to avoid supporting an exploitative mode of business that treats people like shit, closes down independent record stores, and ultimately funnels more money up to a small number of people that are already disgustingly rich.

Thanks.



PS if anyone can think of reasons this makes me a weak bitch pussy faggot 'butthurt tween' murderer of punk, please let me know.

xoxox love from Ben

Whats no unethical about shopping in a store that employs locals? Sure a bit of money goes outwards but then the store is helped out by the larger company with advertising and stock

nails - as far as I am aware, JB Hi-Fi is a publicly listed company on the ASX (Australian Securities Exchange). They may employ local people (see previous comments by others on pay and conditions), but profits are most likely paid out as dividends to shareholders across the ditch. Neat stuff, huh.

Great thread guys.

Compilation CDs, t-shirts, moderate national success.. when all these things start causing hand-wringing and bad blood, you know for sure that punk is dead.
The parasites are excited when you're dead; eyes bulging, entering your head; and all your thoughts yeah, they rot.

i listened to wattie claiming the reverse not 10 mins ago, but im sadly inclining to agree.

ben hygiene, fair enough reason, i took from your bandmates posts more silly crap about the mot tshirt, i cant agree with jb-hifi, tho personally were i in your position id not see the point of boycotting.

Do you think it would of been more or less of a controversy if this was sold exclusively at the warehouse rather than jbhifi?

Good work Olly!

Really hope nothing got printed before TH pulled out, that could be the only bad buzz i could see coming from this. Someone losing more money than they already will doing something fun like this.

What a boring shitstorm this all turned into. I think everyone needs to get the fuck over themselves.
Its an ugly, ugly life.
