The Cynics, who have remained tightlipped amid the controversy surrounding one of their best-known songs, plan to break their silence next week in one of the most unlikely places — in an interview with radio host, Yannis Tavros, on Toro Talk Radio.
The radio station, whose slogan, “All Bull. All The Time,” reflects its strict and exclusionary policy, explained the exception in a statement released yesterday afternoon:
“We at Toro Talk Radio are deeply committed to freedom of speech in The Park. When that freedom is threatened for any reason, we feel it is important to speak up and to defend this most sacred of rights. As a result of the unfortunate decision taken by the Association of Park Radio Stations regarding a song by The Cynics, we feel it is incumbent upon us to provide The Cynics with a neutral environment in which to discuss the implied charges. For this reason, we have invited them, along with their manager, Damien Skyle, to discuss their situation with Toro Talk Radio host, Yannis Tavros. We have also reached out to the APRS, but have not had a response from them to date. We look forward to providing The Park’s citizens with a free and open discussion regarding censorship and music on 18 Myrodia.”
