No worries. Both Steve and Buck's current stance is that if anything's
more than 6 or so months old we're reasonably happy to give away sound
files / burn CD's of anything out of print, including disease/VDB or SEP
rather than see people have to pay collector prices when all they want to
do is hear the music. Kinda shocked to see DCs going for any more than
$10 -- it didn't sell a hell of a lot when it was released. I've got
iso's of the metonymic SEP/VDB CDs and will happily throw CDR's your way,
gratis, if you want, as you seem to like the stuff.
If you want to confirm that this is all A-OK, Peter's email is same as his
old label (starting with met but with a rather surprising dot after the
final c) @ clear.net.nz -- my understanding, following a bit of a debate
after kiwitapes put up a bunch of stuff, is that he'd rather the music was
exposed for free rather than not available at all, I know Steve has that
belief, and so do I, but the songs aren't my I/P.
detouring slightly, t'other band that's a stunted growth of the same
family tree is Minus 2 -- aka Terminals less Buck'n'Brian, there're
details at the seriously outdated info page at
John Billows is remixing the unreleased, unnamed, second album (-2.2),
probably as I write this and hopefully for a future LVD release.
if you do want the CDRs of SEP/VDB I can throw in 'the Beat goes off' --
aka -2.1 or anything else you haven't heard. The -2 songs were recorded
1999 and 2001, but are probably at least 50% unrecorded VDB or pre-VDB
songs that Mr Cogle wanted to get down on tape. Galaxy Records/CHCH
probably still has TBGO with the original cover, etc. G'night!
