Graham Gold Curses Mixmag
Author: Jonty Skrufff
Monday, April 25, 2005Mixmag have published an angry letter from Graham Gold in their new issue, in which the trance icon blasts the magazine for teasing him in an earlier edition.
"Most of the people at Mixmag know fuck-all about music, nor do they care about the scene we are in, they don't know me, they have NO FUCKING IDEA (Graham's capitals) of the work I've done over the last 25 years and they aren't fit to lick my shoes," Graham rages. "They haven't been to my gigs so what FUCKING right do those cunts have to slag me off," he storms.
The Mixmag journalist responsible responded by accusing the club veteran of "getting huffy like a BIG GIRL' (Mixmag's capitals) though Graham's track record of media rows should make Mixmag pause for thought. Just two years earlier, he took on a similar fight with Ministry magazine which ended when the mag ceased publication.
"I laughed my head off when Ministry closed," Graham told Skrufff at the time.
"That whole row though was down to just one dickhead reporter, it wasn't anything to do with the editor," he continued. "The problem was that some of their writers were asshole, fucking journalists who knew jackshit and had been in the business for five minutes," said Graham.
