Re: Comfortably Numb as an opener

When I was at school one of the other lads whose dad had a swanky hifi setup with one of the very early CD players, so loads of his CDs got copied onto tapes and made their way around the school, a bit like the way our weeding thing used to go. The Wall was one that I'd grabbed so yeah I knew the so...

Throwing outright accusations of lying at @sisterspinster is out of order. I see no reason to disbelieve them. We're better than that.

The band will still benefit via publishing rights.
...if the songs have been published properly.

And no, I don't think that bunging the lyrics on the official site really counts does it? There's no proper publishing credits for any of these songs anywhere I can find.

I don't get it. I watched the whole video. Can someone help me out? He's complaining about what they call "food deserts" and he gets fired for it? Have we missed something glaringly obvious?

Re: Some Kind Of Demos

I seem to recall that Lulu released Bowie's "The Man Who Sold The World" as a single before he did. But then that single was co-produced by Bowie (and Mick Ronson) and was several years after the song was out on its eponymous LP. So there's no question of it being done without Bowie's knowledge, sti...

If the band do have a problem with this, the "very, very simple solution" may very well be a cease-and-desist letter. Or an injunction.
Way back when there was an issue with filesharing and an FTP server, didn't they just ask politely?
As in "ask politely but carry a big stick"?

You know what, since I abandoned facebook my mental health has improved massively. It's not a coincidence either. Shouting at strangers (the communication style that facebook most encourages) is not good for the brain.

An entire album of other people's work uploaded to commercial platforms, complete with copyright statements feels entirely different. If I was Von, I'd have a strong opinion about this. Personally, I'd be surprised if Tobias doesn't hear from him or someone close to him in the next 24 hours. If he ...

side notes: Tems are finicky and even the best trem system in the world will cause some detuning, 12 string guitars are also notoriously finick and can easily go out of tune, and that's way it's easier finding an unicorn in the field than a 12-stringer with a trem Oof.

Heh. Well the two things are related. Boris Johnson's woeful handling of the pandemic has probably cause tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths.
