CD/digital, 2020, Nefarious Activities, Oakland. Available
PLEASE DON'T BUY, SELL, TRADE or DISTRIBUTE THE CD VERSION! IT IS FAULTY
the audio contained on this cd is not the material i provided for release, and it does not meet the quality standards that i wish to offer. this is quite like a bootleg - a release of unsolicited material.
and the label refuses to communicate after this error has been pointed out to them.
the long story is:
i worked with nefarious activities on this release. once i finally got the finished release, it turns out the label messed up the audio. the label pressed an early demo version of this album rather than the final audio master. duh. the demo version differs partly in composition and is only partially mastered, some tracks are unfinished, have different track lengths…
it took the label over 4 years to release this, from the moment they received final audio and artwork. it took the label 4 months to send me my copies of the finished release. (plus the label claims they sent 2 parcels of royalty copies, one of which hasn’t arrived. plus the label made badges they never sent me…. ).
when i confronted the label about the faulty audio, i got this reply: “i think it’s best we stop communication alltogether”. my request to salvage this situation and my offer to even pay for reprinting the disc remain unanswered…
i don’t think this attitude is okay. not at all. if you agree, PLEASE DON'T BUY, SELL, TRADE or DISTRIBUTE the CD "don't hurt me for your pretty" by dave phillips on NEFARIOUS ACTIVITIES!
