ANAL CUNT's SETH PUTNAM: 'CHRIS BARNES Is A Pussy'

ANAL CUNT frontman Seth Putnam reportedly caused SIX FEET UNDER singer Chris Barnes to cut short his band's headlining performance at The Living Room in Providence, Rhode Island on October 24 by screaming obscenities at the former CANNIBAL CORPSE vocalist and challenging him to a fight.

The following is Putnam's account of the incident, as posted on his official web site:

"I'm always surprised about stuff like this. I figure a band as funny as SIX FEET UNDER would be booked into comedy clubs, but they keep insisting on doing shows at rock clubs. Anyways, since coming to the realization that [SIX FEET UNDER] are one of the funniest bands in the world last year, this has been the first time I've had the opportunity to see them. If you didn't know, ever since the whole incident with Chris Barnes 7 years ago (if you don't know about this, it's explained [here]), [SIX FEET UNDER] haven't played in Boston (that I know of, anyways). So, I went, by myself, to Rhode Island (60 miles/100km away) to see them, get a good laugh, and hope Chris Barnes would try and fight me by himself, or at least admit he's a pussy. I timed getting there badly, and got stuck seeing 2 of the opening bands. The first was BEHEMOTH. I heard their first CD years ago, and thought it was funny, kind of like IMPALED NORTHERN MOONFOREST with a drum machine (I never got past the first song, so I don't know if the whole CD is like this). I didn't like them. After about 30 minutes however, some big mouth was yelling at their soundman to shut the power off in a wigger-like fashion. I assumed he was with [SIX FEET UNDER]. I then noticed a HATEBREED laminated pass around his neck (HATEBREED weren't playing, he was just trying to look like he was an important homosexual or something), and thought, this guy is definitely gay enough to be with [SIX FEET UNDER]. I asked the poor soundman for BEHEMOTH if that toughguywigger type was with [SIX FEET UNDER], he said yes. Next up was SKINLESS. Lots of people have told me good things about them, and I was in jail with their roadie once, so I was mildly interested in seeing them. I didn't like them at all. Luckily, I got into a long conversation with someone, so I didn't really have to pay attention to them. They finally got off. Then [SIX FEET UNDER] came onstage to only about 50 people (there were maybe 150-200 people there during the previous bands). I stood right up front, in front of Chris Barnes, and was looking forward to seeing them. They opened with 'Bringer Of Blood', then did some other songs. After about 5-6 songs, they mysteriously stopped, and left the stage. According to the set list, there were around 10 songs left. Of course, somewhere during the course of the show, I yelled the chorus to 'Chris Barnes Is A Pussy' ('Chris Barnes Is A – Faggot'). All I can think of is that he was nervous, and afraid of me, and ran to his usual hiding spot (the tour bus). I yelled he was a faggot a couple more times outside the bus, then went home. I wish he could've at least finished the set before running away. Most people there had no idea why they stopped for no reason whatsoever. I explained to a couple people about our situation years earlier, and that he was a pussy, and had to run and hide in his tour bus. So, to wrap things up, 7 years later, Chris Barnes is still a pussy. At least they did 'Murdered In The Basement', my favorite song from the new CD. I wish they did a bunch of their hilarious cover songs. I think they should really consider doing 'Bohemian Rhapsody' by QUEEN for their next CD. It could really show off Barnes' vocal range, plus, he's gay like Freddie Mercury, so it would make sense. I'll bet Freddie Mercury didn't run from all his fights. I'm sure he would've at least slapped the other person with a pink glove or something."
