Well now two weeks later and after a pretty successful show, the two leaders are pleading with me to stay in the band, saying that things will be different. Now I'm gaslighting myself about walking away from an opportunity, but I have more evidence that things will NOT change if I stay on. People don't change.

also "everybody lies" and "it's never Lupus."
But, seriously, if it takes a threat to leave, they don't really respect your concerns or else they would have addressed them earlier, in a non-desperation scenario.
That's pretty much what I've been telling them. It’s almost hilarious her saying that things will be different now, since I pretty much decided to quit around that huge argument we had in April, after which they decided to go ahead and film a music video without me and Jeff. Like THAT WAS YOUR CHANCE. Why would I believe you that this time would be different? Just because you know you've finally pushed me out the door?
If you were serious about thinking of re-upping and wanted to see how sincere they were about your concerns, ask if they're willing to put shit in writing.
Back off, or I'll blow the roof off—with sound!

I can't imagine what that contract would look like because it's so much interpersonal stuff too, just the way she reacts to people disagreeing with her. You can't really tie somebody down on their personality.

Fair enough if it's a personality thing. If you can't come up with hypothetical demands that could be laid down in print, that's suggestive of your state of mind toward all this. Think of yourself as like part of the parade of PiL bassists who realized that Lydon ain't worth it.

I call Pete Jones!

I just hope they don't have any real success. It would be kind of annoying seeing them succeed on the back of my basslines while I languish with a less successful band.

Oooo, the magic 8-ball landed on Louie Bernardi. Sorry.

Pete Best and Stephen Duffy might be looking for a bass player …

But if your assessment of the singer is that she wants fame more than to make music, any success would seem to be built to short-circuit.

Well it's begun, they've re-recorded over one of my basslines for the upcoming album. I'm going to have to get my money back if they do this any more, I'm not going to have paid to produce an album I don't play on.
