Earlier this week, PRINCE released a rehearsal jam exclusively to drfunkenberry.com of “Mutiny/Ice Cream Castles” a response of sorts to if former bands in his Purple Court could open up for him in Australia.

Paul Peterson aka St. Paul of Fdeluxe (Formerly The Family) received the track before anyone else last week….and responded in play to his former boss.  They felt Prince was having a little fun with the band, so they thought they would return the serve.

Fdeluxe is Paul Peterson, Susannah Melvoin, Eric Leeds, and Jellybean Johnson.

The response?  “Hot Summer At Menards.”  Menards is a home improvement store in the Mid-West for those that may not know.

Hmm.  “Hot Summer” is a song that Prince gave to the radio station The Current in Minneapolis in June of 2010.

Do they have any garden tools?  What do you think of Fdeluxe’s response to “Mutiny” and will The Original 7ven/The Time respond as well?  We don’t think so, but you never know.  Will you be going to any “Hot Summer” sales?  No?  Ok then.

Will Prince respond to this response with an even funkier rehearsal jam?  Stay tuned……..-DocFB

    This is F’ing hillarious! Forget typing it, I seriously laughed out loud when I heard this. Douche bag is as douche bad does. And sometimes Prince can be a douche. I mean seriously. Is a gazillion dollars and hero status not enough. You can’t throw one friggin bone once in a while.
    Good for them.

    In case you didn’t get the joke… Fdeluxe is saying Prince has gone commercial.

    @CmputrBlu….you tend to forget that Paul and Morris QUIT the bands to pursue solo careers! They didn’t seem too concerned at the time about the band when they both QUIT. I’m sure they had their reasons but the did leave on their own.

    While, I would have loved for them to be able to use the old names, I don’t blame Prince one bit for not wanting them to use the names after 20+ years.

    You seriously think they both changed their names of their own accord? If it wasnt for Prince not letting use the names; they would STILL be “The Time” and “The Family”.
