Re: Hookworms split

If you read many tweets from Hookworms they don't hesitate to lay into bands where vaguely similar accusations have been made. They constantly said 'Always Believe Survivors', so it's hardly surprising how volatile the reaction has been to these allegations.

I'm not sure how if anyone else has read about the somewhat unsavoury end to Hookworms.

Easier to post the link than explain it all. Not good reading.
