Wildly requested, finally reloaded! Classic megapunk at the rockingest level! GBH are a third the NWOBPR triumvirate with Discharge and The Exploited - enough said. The eternal equation is still: City Baby Attacked By Rats + early Holocaust = Kill'Em All. It was another era. It was heaven and hell. It was the big bang that head. GBH, Holocaust and Metallica are still active, but who has released a never ending river of brown since 89?
PS: anybody here using Discogs's API to automatically retrieve data from api.discogs.com/blablabla?f=xml? My stuff's been getting 404 on all pages since Saturday... WTF?
[only Francophones can get this]
PPS: is the new Robocop as infinitely shitty as the trailers promise? It smells of infect romance for your microwave. The list of traitors to the 80s never closes.
!ZER G.B.H. ZER!

Ah, I almost forgot, AT got aware of the Th'Inbred drama from last year, here is their response. Some of you might be interested in reading what they have to say. I am not following suit to their offer of "working with AT", becoming an AT marketing entry point is not very high on my TODO list.

Jesse Townley/Alternative Tentacles here. When we release authorized discographies and/or reissues of KBD bands like Th' Inbred, False Prophets, The Dicks, etc, we search out music blogs like yours and ask in the comments for the full downloads to be pulled down & replaced with a link to the reissue's page on our site. (With our most recent reissues of The Dicks LPs & 7"s, we started offering free promo tracks to music blogs so that there'll still be some tracks available for free)
Why? Because that way the bands whose music fans like the visitors to this site can actually make a little bit of money, AND you all can hear the music in the remastered and/or restored version that the band intended you to hear it. No longer is a scratchy rip of a beloved 7-inch the only way to hear that KBD single.
Off hand, I've no idea if your blog was contacted before the DMCA notice was sent. (My ex-co worker was in charge of these notices and I'm checking to see if he tried contacting you before sending the DMCA notice)
For other on-line blogs who clearly not fan-run, let alone punk-run, we just send DMCA notices immediately. There are definitely people who don't care about the bands at all and it's usually really clear from the 1st glance which ones these are. Those blogs don't give a fuck about the music and they definitely don't care if a particular band is taken down.
We feel really strongly as a label that copyright and free/inexpensive access to art are not incompatible and we try to balance the two. That's why we try to make a distinction between different types of blogs who host our bands' music. (We're not perfect and sometimes make mistakes- that may have happened here)
Please support your favorite bands by purchasing their music from authorized record labels or directly from the bands themselves. To the owner of this blog, please consider substituting direct links to the AT site for any live links left on your site.
P.S.- You used to do what I'm talking about back in 2009. In this post about Jello/DOA & Lard, you offer links to AT & a sample song or 2.
That's friggin' awesome and what we'd love you to continue. If you want to work WITH us, we could even work out something like sending you tracks to post that are cleaned up and ready to go for current and future KBD releases. 2 upcoming ones are FRANTIX and REALLY RED, along with a super-secret one that probably won't happen until 2015.
E-mail Dominic my co-worker about this. I'm also sending him a link to this page so he can see what the current situation is. comm at alternativetentacles.com

PS- This would also mean you could have some permanent downloads on your site again because we'd know, oh hey, it's Church of Zer. These are all a-okay and we'd skip to the next site.
Jesse/Alternative Tentacles February 19, 2014 at 8:28 PM
PPS- Today is the 1st I've heard of this thread or situation. We would've responded more quickly if we'd known that there was a discussion like this going on, or realized that we'd made a mistake and sent a DMCA notice to a fan blog before asking for the music to be taken down.

I appreciate you taking the time to explain things. Really, I never received any request from AT to take down the Th'Inbred link before getting the DMCA notice (and a warning from Blogspot).
Another label carrying 80s punk releases recently managed to destroy the content of this blog (see here) without asking me to take down the links. So no more permanent links anymore and all punk labels are now safe from my piracy.
Jesse/Alternative Tentacles February 20, 2014 at 2:20 PM
If you can add my reply to the original post so that people see our label's response, I would appreciate it.
My co-worker said that after the take-down request went thru, you and I corresponded briefly. I don't remember it & can't find it in my e-mail. Regardless, I hope you and your readers have a better understanding of how we're trying to straddle supporting our bands by paying them and encouraging people to check them out by offering a FEW free songs.
As I wrote before, you (and other fan bloggers) are strongly encouraged to work WITH Alternative Tentacles. E-mail Dominic at the e-mail above.
