Bloody Fight: WAVVES Vs. Black Lips!!

wavves vs. black lips
Earlier this summer, Jared Swilley of “The Black Lips” called Nathan “Wavves” Williams a dick on the internet. Ok. People have mixed feelings for WAVVES. Well last Friday night in Williamsburg this escalated into something REAL… like not on the internet, but in actual life! After a Wavves concert in Brooklyn, a bunch of folks moseyed over to Daddy’s bar and some drunken punches were thrown between Williams and Swilley… or so they say, there’s some real he-said she-said shit going on:

Williams’ side of the story was posted by Brooklyn Vegan and confirmed by his publicist:

Talking shit about me on the Internet is one thing, I can handle that all day but when some dude is just looking for a fight at 4 in the morning talking shit to my face and his girlfriend is spitting in the face of all my friends it’s a whole different story. I have no problem wih [sic] black lips or anybody else that i havent met but jared has been at me every chance he had. I just want to play music and have fun. It was unfortunate that it escalated to that point but he got what was coming to him.

However, Swilley seems to disagree and has a very different, albeit more entertaining, version which he told Buddyhead:

First of all, I just wanna say that Wavves was NOT involved in that fight. That faggot didn’t even touch me.

I’ve never ‘come after’ that kid, it wasn’t four a.m., that wasn’t my girlfriend, no one was spitting, and I didn’t attack him. I don’t give a shit about that kid and his music.

What happened was, after we finished our set I went to Daddy’s with some friends and saw that faggot from Wavves talking to a photographer friend of mine. The only thing I did was walk up to him and say ‘You’re that faggot from Wavves and I don’t like you’. He smiled a bit but didn’t say anything.

After that, I went outside and saw their tour manager hanging around with some guys. They started getting all chuckles with me and so I told them I wasn’t gonna have it. After that, Wavves tour manager hit me square in the face with a bottle. Blood started pouring out and six dudes fucking started kicking me until I blacked out.

All I remember is getting hit with the bottle and my friends dragging me to another bar. They wrapped my head up until I looked like a Confederate soldier.

So yeah, I lost the fight.

I also missed three flights. I’ve been in the airport all day having stewardesses cleaning my head because it kept cracking open. You can’t go on board if you’re bleeding.

Bottom line is that faggot from Wavves didn’t even hit me. Never touched me. And he should’ve, cuz he had a free shot.

He’s coming to Atlanta October 3rd and we’re gonna get ugly on him. We’re gonna destroy their van, we’re gonna destroy their faces, we’re gonna get crazy on em’. Nasty style.

So now we have threats, name-calling, “hate speech”, photoshopped posters, blogs getting involved… IT’S FUCKING ON!

  1. hmmmm… i’m at a crossroads, here… it’s really hard to side with Wavves, cause he kind of sucks a lot and by “kind of” i mean “not at all kind of”…

    i definitely like the Black Lips’ music better, but at the same time, i didn’t think ANYONE still uses “faggot” as a put-down except for other faggots and TOTAL rednecks.

    maybe they’ll both kill each other? that would be nice… mutually assured destruction! that’s my vote!

    this is just like that Axl Rose vs. Bob Guccione thing from the nineties except NO ONE GIVES A FUCK. have you seen the Wavves kid? he looks like he’s made of asthma. can you imagine watching these two hipster girls fighting? it would be like watching air fighting a cloud.
