I am a proud owner, of almost every single Hardcopy Cd that the Twisted Record label has ever produced. I am Sickened that it was leaked onto the internet. If there is one man out there that deserves your money, it is obviously Simon Posford. This man has the ability to create some of the most organic and godly renditions of sound from the psychedelic netherverse, that i have ever heard.
One the website BT Junkie over 200 people have downloaded the new album.
I’d hate to tour other websites only to discover another 200 or a thousand more people who are downloading it. IT would sicken me to know that music as GREAT AS THIS is suffering.
Meanwhile i am waiting to be able to hear the next devine step in Simon’s psychedelic journey through music the proper channels. I want to give him money, because i respect him.
This is the First time i’ve ever really considered downloading an absolute crime. The twisted record label, produces some of the most complex music known to man. They aren’t Metallica, they don’t have a Legion of retarded fans. The have an small concession of avid and intelligent human who are awake enough to understand the complexity and how much heart and soul is actually poured into constructing as something as lucid and deep as Music like this.
You people are intelligent, Do you not realize, that if you download this album and then refuse to buy it we may never hear any more of this organic conceptual psychedelia
if Simon, the man, the creator, the god of music as great as this, is telling you, the fans, that he cannot afford, just giving away this Cd for free, then why don’t we all band together and actually prove to him that we can make his Cd rise out of the perverbial ashes and actually make this Man some money.
How many times has shpongle assisted you on a Psychedelic trip?
All of these Albums have proven themselves to be amazing musical renditions that seem to segue or interconnect with divine moments of truth experienced while under the influence of psychedelics.
How would you like it if, you were in his position, only to realize that ultimately in the End the Fans were his downfall. Everyone Buy the Cd, Simon is a Real Person, he’s not a faceless “celebrity”. He’s on the same level as the rest of us. He’s human, he requires us to keep his business running. This isn’t some generic music album that is going to be in the lives of everyone. You are here on this forum because you find the concepts and the feelings that his music produces to be incredibly interesting. This isn’t going to be something that just ‘falls’ right into the mainstream socket.
IF any of you think that for one second you are going to find another artist, as personal or as deep, complex or as earth shaking as Simon Posford and his music, then i would really enjoy to see you try. I have yet to find someone capable of retaining the personality and style his music has. While remaining completely existential I really doubt there are harder working artists out there.
So Please everyone, Stop downloading the album, Wait for it, buy it. Be a Real fan and show how much you actually care for Simon and this record Label.
Simon, if you read this, please never quit, I’m going to be sending you a $100 dollar donation once i get my check. Don’t even bother to send me the Cd. I have it ordered at the Grooves Record store here in my town. You need this money
If you ever have the chance to play in Toronto do it, There is a Huge Fanbase here…
You should totally blow the walls out of Kool Haus, or The Pheonix.
Thank you very much for reading.
Everyone, you need to realize that this man, isn’t a multi platnium selling artist. But he is just that, an Artist. This Artist, SHOULD NOT SUFFER for his work, Especially if his work, is something as heartwarming and human, as the kind of music this Wizard of sound manipulates.
P.S. Simon, if you really want to do something about it, you should email me a professional letterhead of your Record Company, and then i can write a massive email to all of the different Torrent sites out there, that looks incredibly legitimate to convince them to take down all of the Leaked Cd’s.
Believe it or not it actually works. It has worked in the past for many other underground artists.
