News Re: Reggie and the Full Effect… Done?

After posting a questionable, cryptic message on his MySpace page a couple weeks ago, Reggie and the Full Effect ringleader James Dewees had everyone believing his schizophrenic, moog-heavy pop vs. hardcore vs. emo project was over.
Well don’t cry/pop open the champagne just yet. Dewees’ latest (typo-laden) message apologizes for the confusion and promises Reggie ain’t goin’ nowhere:
hey turkeys sorry for the confusion, reggie and the full effect isnot broken up, its just me. i cant break up with myself. what i meant by the previous quote was that i am done paying people money who have nothing to do with the band. i am writing whatever i want. i am singing whatever i want and doing whatever i want. its something that alot of my freinds in bands should do as well. people tend to forget that without songwriters there would be no songs and without musicians there would be music. therefore there would no industry, a bunch of dudes in a room without a product is just a bunch of dudes in a room. once again sorry for the confusion but hey whats new coming from me ya know?
(Confidential to Grandy: Promotional Copy was Reggie’s greatest record, but surprisngly his latest, Songs Not to Get Married To, has some really thoughtful and classic-sounding Reggie jams. Worth checkin’ out.)
