Scum Addresses No LSP artists being invited to The Gathering

Since his social media accounts and cell phone have been blowing up with questions and speculation…Scum decided to take to Facebook to speak about no LSP artists being invited to the Gathering of the Juggalos.

You can read the full statement below. What are your thoughts about this? Let us know in the comment section below.



So I wasn’t even going to address this but my phone been blowing up all day with fans and artists wanting to know how come there is not a single LSP act playing the Gathering this year and if we are still coming and doing the annual BBQ “n” open bar for the fam at GOTJ 17. Let me just answer everyone on behalf of our label instead of replying to your numerous texts and messages. I don’t know what goes on behind closed doors and what made PSY exclude our entire roster after years of playing The Gathering, so this time I will not speculate or make an ass of myself by making assumptions. They didn’t want us there this year for some reason so we will not be there. I personally love Gatherings and always have a blast kicking it with everyone for a weekend and enjoying the great performances so even though unlike any of our other shows we always spend more then what we make I will gladly perform when invited and maybe next year things will be different. Meanwhile unfortunately there will not be an LSP BBQ for the fam this year, there will be no LSP performances, and we will not be attending since we can’t afford the trip just to throw a party for everyone. Maybe next time. You can catch the entire LSP roster at The 11th Annual Gorefest in Denver, CO. August 19-21 along with a sick underground line-up and as always it’s free to attend with an out of state ID…please spread this message and don’t hit us up with additional questions about why we are not performing…we don’t know. You want to know, ask PSY, it’s their decision and their event so they can book whoever they want, no hard feelings, maybe another time. For any LSP fam attending, have fun, be safe, enjoy the performances, show luv, support the underground, and rep the saw “n” axe while you are there!!!!!!!

Much luv n respect,

    I enjoy Scum’s music but I’m not at all familiar with his label’s roster.

    ‘, and we will not be attending since we can’t afford the trip just to throw a party for everyone. ‘
    meanwhile, all the rest of us WILL BE DOING EXACTLY THAT.
    stay home, then.
    pray for free tickets next year, you special, special people.

    @scruffy I second that sentiment!

    So what they’re really saying is the answer to the question, “Would you still Gather IF…?”. Nope. They wouldn’t.

    Fer fuck’s sake, didn’t they have their WHOLE ROSTER perform last year on the same stage all afternoon ‘er some shit?

    Kung Fu Vampire didn’t play last year… never made a bitch post.

    Is anyone else familiar with this BBQ he’s proclaiming? Must just be something they put out there through their own channels cuz I never heard about such an “event” anyway.

    Fuck, if they’re REALLY on the grind for their shit, they’d pay to get in like everyone else and try to hijack the Peep This Stage or enter some fuckin’ contests and reprazent…. pfft

    Kung Fu Vampire didn’t play the last two years and had nothing negative to say about it, LSP definitely plays the gathering a lot and I love Some of them, haven’t heard their music much other than Liquid Assassin and Dark Half and they are great! Scums post seems spiteful and is really not the way to handle situations. I can’t think of another scenario where a regional artist like Scum has played a national festival so many times and then when finally isn’t invited makes a big stink about it, should be glad he’s played that many times and grateful for the opportunity.

    Why not come, hang out, and NOT throw a party for everyone, but party yourself. You want to perform? It won’t be that hard to find a venue.

    Its real simple people. Scum,Dark Half,Liquid assassin + others from the LSP roster have played every GOTJ for the last 7 years or so. So wen Fans started blowin up his shit he adressed it. No Hater shit. Said hed love to come back next year if invited.Its all Good…. Some of yall are just sensitive as Hell

    These are what bookers call “bringer acts.” They don’t have a national draw, they don’t have general appeal, they’re usually wannabes in whatever genre they’re playing next to, and their fans will buy tickets (but not the other way around, as in, no one who came to see ICP and Tech is gonna watch a bunch of teenagers grumble “I’m evil”). You were never a main stage act, quit pretending you’re owed a damn thing. You weren’t booked because you aren’t on Psy’s radar, and for a good reason, your shit has potential but is cheesy as hell, you need mastering, and that photo shows you don’t know mic dynamics one bit. Could have solved this whole life by being original from the gate, but nah. Gotta rip off that spookycore. Best thing you can do is put put a product or a song or a video that someone who has no idea who you are can enjoy. Then maybe Psy will hit you up.

    didnt notice the mic, but thats correct.
    ‘never cup the mic’ is somewhere near the bottom of page one in the mc manual.
    for the record, i dont think the guy is bein a hater, exactly. just a cheapskate who dont understand the gathering at all. seems to think its there to serve his business interests, and has little value outside that.
    i aint bein a hater, either. if he aint wanted to look like that, he woulda phrased it differently.
    travisking can afford to go, and is goin, even though scum wont be attending. must be sumn more to it than an lsp commercial, yeah?

    Kinda nit pickin aint ya scruff. I get evryones mission on the Internet is to dissect everything down to the smallest,Insignifiacnt detail. But ur reachin hard with that one Bro.Dude typed a quick message on the fly.Probly didnt take more than 2 min.Just a quick post to update his Fans. I just wonder if everything youve typed and posted Via th Net has been worded EXACTLY the way you wanted it to sound.Scum has put yars of work in doin shows and makin music for us.Chill

    everything ive typed? nah. but most.
    scum aint done squat for me, so i dont see any reason to prop him for not puttin more than two minutes thought into it.
    sumn else for the record: i give not very much a fuck about the whole thing either way. wasnt dissectin shit. you a lot more worried about it than i ever was.

    I can’t blame Scum for not wanting to spend money just to party, for wanting to spend time making money.

    Probably why Scum runs a label and isn’t broke.

    youre sayin, bitches, that your evaluation of me as a person was hinging on this silly shit?
    that great. try not to nitpick, or jump to any ridiculous conclusions, cuz that would be bad.
    still dont give a fuck. you be a fan, thats you; cant tell me who i gotta give a pass to. cuz that aint you.
    lucem: he broke enough that he ‘cant afford’ a gathering. by my standards, thats close to destitution.
    dude just dont care about the gathering unless he gets to play it. the end. live with it.

    This is fuckin inane, the fact that anyone thinks LSP needs ANYTHING or ANYONE to sustain themselves is laughable. Here are some facts. LSP has been touring nationally annually for at least 8 years if not a decade, and anyone who knows Scum knows dude aint rich to the point where he could just tour at a loss over and over again. You simply cannot do that without a dedicated national fanbase that, by the way, absolutely has national appeal and draw. Their fanbase is the most rabid you’ll see apart from juggalos. Don’t believe me? Go to a GoreFest. And while you’re there, realize that LSP and Slo Pain OWN THE FUCKING VENUE. So which other label is doing that? Owns their own venue that has national acts coming in and out monthly as well as their own? Oh and there’s a dispensary they’re partnered with literally 20 steps from the front doors AND its pot friendly inside/the smoking section. That sounds like a shrewd business plan for a Denver based entertainment company to me. Anyone hating on LSP is uncomfortable with their success, period. The mentality is basically “I think they suck so how can they be successful?”, shit is funny. And on that note, let me just say this gathering is bound for failure. “Gather or you don’t matter?” Well fuck you then hoss, I got kids and a job and I need my vacation days for an actual family vacation, not a debauchery festival I need a weeks worth of child care for that’s NOTHING compared to its Crystal Forest or even Cave-In Rock days. If people like me don’t matter I aint fuckin tryin to. I swear to god its like juggalos are holding in a shit the whole year until they get to the gathering grounds then they just splatter it all over the ground in front of everyone, and if you’ve ever been in the mosh pit the morning after ICP before driving home you know that’s only a half-step from the actual truth of it. I don’t need half a week around the majority of our nations juggalo population to be reminded how fuckin ignorant their behavior has become. HATE ME BITCHES!

    Always look forward to all the LSP artists and the fresh vibe they bring to the gathering and to gorefest. Gonna miss you all this year, we were really hoping for another 50 shades of snuff, that shit went hard last year!

    makes me real hesitant to give props to your people, i can tell you that. really, makes me think maybe i should be hatin on em for real.
    cuz if that weakass troll mentality is what lsp and their fans are all about, i dont belong there. so ima stay juggalo. where i belong.
    and be up in some gathering. where i belong.

    Yoooo…I thought making a simple FB post would save me time while I’m out on a headlining tour (my 12th one, for those who said some shit about us being kids trying to sound scary, I’m a grown ass man who makes a living doing horrorcore, one of the few) but now I got fans blowing me up about all the hate of Faygoluvers which is one of the sites I truly respect, shout-out to my brother Scottie D for all the years of supporting the underground, so I had to chime in and address it. First off for all the little trollin fucks acting like I cunt punted their grandma just cause I spoke my mind and chose to skip a year of Gathering…I can definitely afford a ticket and have paid for em before, I also paid my dues, LSP has 53 official releases in stores, done numerous tours, and I’ve played 8 Gatherings, so just like most of the higher ranking underground artists I have a right to skip a year when I’m not invited to play like I skip a lot of other fests I’ve rocked not cause I don’t enjoy being there or kicking it with my fam but cause I got 3 kids n a grandkid to take care of and if I got a few extra thousand to spend id rather be an adult and spend it on them and not doing something for myself. Gotta have priorities. I didn’t discourage any of our artists and fans from attending AMD if they do I hope they have a great time as I usually do. I know for a fact (none of your business how) that we didn’t get skipped to rotate acts or change up the line up, I was actualy not planning on getting an invite myself and just going to support some of my other acts that didn’t play last couple years but none of em got invited as well…I know why but I will not address it…of u wanna know, ask PSY…I respect the movement they built and have had so many great times at GOTJ that I’d rather skip a year and hopefully we get invited back due to the demand, I would love to be back next year, if not I will keep doing what I do, building up what we have built…not playing the Gathering will not break this movement, believe that. I hope that everyone who attends has an amazing time, stays safe, and enjoys this great underground event, it’s definitely worth going to…if u support LSP I got mad love for u and will see u on my next tour…if u don’t, I won’t…no luv lost…if u r trolling n hating and don’t even know us, eat a footlong cock meat sandwich and choke on it :-)
    Much respect and I’m out, got a show to headline,

    I WILL commend you on realizing you aren’t sure why you weren’t invited and for not throwing a hissy fit at Psy about it. Way to have some forethought and not burn bridges without knowing the facts.

    Comment posted on Friday, May 27th, 2016 12:26 am GMT -6 at 12:26 am

    nice response, there scum.
    i aint a trollin fuck or a hater, so i know you aint mean me.
    even if you did, i made an observation based on the sum total of what i knew about you [that post], and your fans lost their minds about it. trollery aint comin from me, its aimed at me. openly fuckin admitted, right up there.
    and like pigg, i actually think the rest of that shit was right on, and had a lil touch of class. if for no other reason than so few have even that much class, these days. i probably dont.
    was just that one little excerpt. which i guess i shouldnt have said anything about, lest it start some big fan backlash campaign. ‘we gotta do something about those horrible haters at faygoluvers!’
    what the fuck. bigass mountain out of a fuckin molehill.
    anyway… to the actual scum: sorry bout that. nothing to add.

    LSP fans is fella mad.
    “Ask Psy”? If you don’t want us to know why tell us to ask them.
    So u do want us to know?
    Psy cashed out for this shit god forbid them for taking a deal with some agent for some bands we will love to hate. Lol
    “Faygoluvers hate” was dumb. Most people were like why don’t come to the gathering anyways.
    I don’t care for LSP. I’m pretty ignorant on their library. But I don’t like what I heard.
    Good job for not getting pissy scum but I think ur fans off the wire here.

    He says “I know why but I will not address it, if you wanna know ask PSY”

    Talk about a BS cop-out answer. If you do k ow like you say you do but won’t talk about it then why even say so? All he’s doing know us making people speculate even more

    Comment posted on Friday, May 27th, 2016 02:48 pm GMT -6 at 2:48 pm

    You people crack me the fuck up, are you aware of a term known as “professional courtesy”? PSY aint gonna speak on this because it’s not the kind of thing that requires and official statement. Scum aint gonna speak on his sources because that’s how you end up with no sources, it’s disrespectful and that’s not how business is done. How many of you ever done business in the music scene? I swear you’re a fan for long enough you start to think the artists owe you something, its insane. Scum aint have to say shit and frankly I’m shocked he did, he’s so above this shit it’s laughable to contemplate. LSP doesn’t need any new fans, they keep accumulating them but they most certainly don’t need them, they have one of the strongest regional draws in the country and one of the better national draws too. “LSP Sucks”. Ok, don’t listen to them dickwad, just don’t say that shit in front of their fans, because just like juggalos used to, they take that shit personally. I love how being a juggalo at all was spawned from being an outcast and now juggalos outcast others, fuckin laughable is what it is.

    How were the LSP fans “Off the wire” here again? People started Making stupid ass assumptions based off 1 Paragraph. Talkin that Bs about scum hatin on the gathering. Even tho dude clearly stated he wants to go back and has nothing but love for Juggalos and that event.As a Juggalo as well as a Fan of LSP, Im done done Here. Hope evoryone has a Safe Trip to GOTJ.As a guy thats been there on several occasions (All at Cave in Rock tho).I can tell you its pretty awesome.Sorry I ruffled ur feathers scruff.Shit got a lil outta hand.No Harm Intended….Mr.Bitches Out.
