Andrew Tijs of Australia’s Beat magazine caught up with Dennis Lyxzen of the International Noise Conspiracy who lamented the insidious omnipresence of capitalism confronts that confronts the band. “Every time we get up to do a festival it’s like a giant beer commercial,” he sighed. “There’s was this tent we were playing and there was a drum contest and I thought, ‘Wow, that’s awesome that they’re having a drum contest’. Then I find out Drum is a cigarette brand. You kinda feel like you have to be a part of that whole culture where people are actually more interested in drinking beer than listening to the music. It’s frustrating.” Beat.com.au has since removed the article.
