Anal Cunt at Public Assembly (more by Justina Villanueva)
Anal Cunt

Kim Kelly of Catharsis PR confirms (via her personal blog):

"Yes, it's true. Seth Putnam, one of the most infamous musicians that extreme metal has ever seen, the grindcore GG Allin, has passed away due to a heart attack.

I handled all the promotion for Anal Cunt's last album, Fuckin' A, and Seth was always happy to oblige any request I sent his way. The band had been working on a new album before his passing, so chances are his musical career's epitaph has yet to be inscribed.

I want to remind everyone that no matter how outrageous and controversial his musical career has been, Seth was still a human being with friends and family that loved him. I'm hoping that the internet will remember that. This is a very sad and trying time for those that knew him, and the last thing they need to see is an outpouring of messageboard hate. The man lived and died by his own rules; if anything, respect him for that."

Besides being a member of Anal Cunt, Putnam was also a member of the legendary Siege and made guest appearances on albums by Napalm Death, Pantera, Today is The Day, Psycho, Slapshot, Scissorfight, Eyehategod, Kilslug, Brutal Truth, Incantation, and countless others. Rest in Peace, Putnam.... much like you did after going into a coma, I know you're probably writing a song about this right now.

I'll never forget the time I put on a show with Anal Cunt at TriBeCa Rock Club in 2004 por 2005. After the show Seth asked me what street corner he could go to and have the best chance of scoring cocaine. His mom was standing right next to him. They both took off in the bands van. But left the band and all the gear behind... And of course he had no cell phone.

KK,
You had to know what was coming your way here when you put your statement the way you put it.
Although I agree that people are disgusting, your statement was poorly composed.

Posted by Zero the Hero | June 12, 2011 3:30 PM

Like anyone is supposed to give a shit about a fucking waste of space like seth putnam? Sure, he was funny in that "I'm in my 40s and haven't matured past 7th grade" sorta way, but spewing vitriolic ooze over guitars that sound like shit had about all the charm of a pack of hemorrhoids. Reading the liner notes was all you really needed for the anal cunt experience. I think it takes a lot of balls to implore people to show sensitivity for this asshole.

Posted by Chris | June 12, 2011 4:01 PM

you guys are right. why do something stupid like starting a band when you can just spend all day writing nasty comments on a message board in order to feel better about yourself?

Posted by Anonymous | June 12, 2011 4:24 PM

Yo Zero the Hero et al, my "statement" was a reaction I posted on my personal blog, as someone who has worked with the man and knows how badly his friends & family are hurting. MY blog, not any kind of official website. This was not an official statement. This was what I was thinking.

Blabbermouth pulled it from there without asking me my consent/confirming that it was meant to be any kind of "official" statement. They did the same with my Twitter posts, and every website pulled their news from them.

I assure you, an actual official press release would have been worded a bit differently, but unfortunately I wasn't given the opportunity to write one.

RIP best band name ever

Posted by Anonymous | June 12, 2011 4:40 PM

Yeah, I completely agree with 4:24 and back up what KK is saying here. Just imagine how you would feel if these comments were about if your favorite indie hero just died.

Posted by Anonymous | June 12, 2011 4:44 PM

I think Eric Clapton sucks just like Seth did; writing a song glorifying the death of his son (who was four years old at the time), however, is unconscionable.

"But Seth was an artist who was expressing himself. He also had real feelings and people who loved him!"

Oh yeah?! Here's a witty rejoinder for ya: Fuck you.

Spending your life spewing hate (even if it's somewhat ironic), and still expecting people to care is a pretty tall order.

The only reason I can imagine anyone defending Seth in death is because they feel guilty for not feeling worse about his death than they actually do.

Substitute "Tyler the Creator" for "Seth Putnam" and "Odd Future" for "Anal Cunt" and you've got any of a dozen current Brooklynvegan threads.

I was always shocked at how friendly and amiable Putnam was. Rest in peace, Seth.

Here is someone who wrote many hateful, although at times humorous lyrics, was most probably a drug addict, and releases a "press" photo of himself getting a blowjob while shooting up.

Yeah, people are going to say really kind things about him now that he's gone. lol.

Posted by Anonymous | June 12, 2011 6:58 PM

Agreed, 6:58. Why are we suddenly supposed to support and show sympathy for a man who dedicated his life to hatred of everything and everyone?

People's minds suddenly turn to mush when someone dies.

Posted by Anonymous | June 12, 2011 7:14 PM

Kim, you're a moron. Just because you might have had positive experiences with this guy doesn't take away from the fact that he spent his life spewing hate towards everyone. Dude was a bigoted, pathetic drug addict and quite frankly you have no right telling people to take it easy on him.

Plus, the music he made was always godawful. Fuck him, he doesn't deserve any respect.

Posted by Anonymous | June 12, 2011 7:20 PM

Do you know why she had to request people keep comments about his death civil? Because he was an awful human being and was not nice towards anyone. He got into fights at his shows. He was openly racist and homophobic. But now in death she's trying to control the story and ask people to respect him. Fuck that, he did nothing to command respect. This is a perfect example of reaping what you sow.

I think most of the comments here reaffirm his view of people, and you spew hateful, snotty bile while complaining that he was hateful. Except, unlike him, none of you are artists or create in any way - you are just anonymous, irrelevant, scared, internet commenters who would never have the courage to say or write any of this in reality, or with your actual names attached.

I wish, sincerely, for so many of you hiding cowards to be hit in the head with a brick. It is what many of you deserve.

Posted by Anonymous | June 12, 2011 11:59 PM

11:59, the reason we are spewing hate is because this dude was a piece of shit. I can't speak for everyone, but if he wasn't such a monumental asshole throughout his entire career, my comments would be far more positive. He lived like an asshole, he doesn't deserve the respect of losers like you.

""I think Eric Clapton sucks just like Seth did; writing a song glorifying the death of his son (who was four years old at the time), however, is unconscionable.""

glorifying? really?? i think a more appropriate word would be "exploiting" -- clapton is a square but i'm sure he wouldn't care to celebrate (i.e., glorify) his own son's death...

seriously. he did what he did and now he's dead. and it's fucking stupid to ask people to take it easy on him. dude wrote songs that offended. do you really think he'd care if people insulted him after death? fuck no. i definitely am not a fan of the dude but he had balls, thats for sure.

So many real pieces of shit on here. Love to hear that there is so many of you have such vaulted morality that you're willing to say that someone who writes music from what ever perspective they chose is a full representation of who they are. Whose to say who this guy is or isn't. Everyone has dysfunction. Some people are just more constructive about dealing with it than others. I can say that growing up I had some really good times listening to some of the bullshit that AC put out. I love the Angry Samoans for the same reason. Not the most PC band but I like them because of that too. RIP Seth.

I wonder if seth felt typecast as a grindcore enfant terrible. He was always polite in my dealings with him in regards to booking, although this is the guy who brought a handicapped person with him so he would have someone to make fun of.

To those of you here and elsewhere who've have expressed your condolences over Seth's death, please know that they are much appreciated.

To those few who have left any negative remarks, again both here and elsewhere, let me just say this, you have done nothing and will never do anything with your lives that you will be remembered for after your deaths. No one will write about or even remember that any of you ever even existed.

Really the very last person in the entire music scene who would say ANYTHING offensive about ANYTHING. Seth was the last guy going against the grain just to fucking piss people off. The whole spirit of punk was to fucking provoke the conformists into fighting. I miss those days.

Now the bands of the world will be free to sing about how global warming is bad, how anti-Semitic comments hurt peoples feelings and that it's wrong to be a racist. Congrats everyone, you are now free to be 100% not gay.

I'm happy that Seth finally found a place outside of this Lying, Politically Correct, Gay-Nigger-Jew shit hole known as Planet Earth.

R.I.P. Seth (the Last honest musician).

P.S. I just got through getting fucked up the ass by my African-American life partner Jerome Jackson-Putnam, We sucked the sperm filled poo from each others cocks and spit it into each others mouths. After about 45 min. of poo/sperm swapping, we got board and decided to lick it from each others mustaches. We then decided to put on "Wearing out our Welcome" to celebrate our sensational acts of faggotry but we had to turn it off because it was just too gay for us.
