Hey, Mr. Reatard,
Thanks for the street creds! Good to talk about it on boards. I got nothing to hide and always followed the rule not to TALK about other people in public. I know your a board maniac so here we go.
If you give the band the ok it shouldnīt be a big deal. I offered you copies if we can trade a bunch more so itīs worth the postage and I could give you copies on top. That hardcover sleeve was expensive. You didnīt replied. From the start, you werenīt even interested to distribute the 45 with your song on . Come on! The offer is still on, business is business and itīs your song, thatīs totally right. I just asked for a deal in trading some more and you take care about some distribution of the Baseball Furies 7" over there. Is that too much -a reason to call me names?
By the way Iīll be charged for licensing fee by GEMA. You should recieve few dollars out of it if they reckoned it right. If not yet, E-Mail me your real name and infos and Iīll take care about that, my friend.
I kind of donīt understand cause labels like mine are supporting your bands and music since years. I spent a lot of hard earned money in buying, promoting and selling your musical output in term of records over the years
All my bands get their copies. Iīll do heavy vinyl, high quality and and I care about the artwork, the bands and releases and actually sending promos (VINYL also!) out. Iīm giving between 10% and 20% of the copies and I have budgets for recordings, if there is a CD release with a certain demand. I pay taxes and applicable fees and donīt do lame pre-sales. In addition, I have a real life!
Actually the whole band copies (including colored vinyl) of the Baseball Furies are still here. I emailed all member various times before and after the release about a shipping adress with no reply. I even talked on Jimmies answering machine. In the meantime, NO one emailed me in the time asking for copies. Weird but true. I will send the copies now to Criminal IQ who will hand them out. I excited for their third record and hope theyīll come for another European Tour. Loveīem.
BEAT BEAT BEAT!
