Two weeks ago a journalist friend from a national newspaper called and asked me if I knew that InterGlobal Music (a new music label and distribution company set up by people who used to run PonyCanyon Malaysia) has released a double-CD featuring Carburetor Dung’s first album Songs For Friends! I didn’t know anything about it, none of us knew!
The album which was recorded and released by Valentine Sound Productions (aka VSP) back in 1993, apparently has been paired with recordings done by The Pilgrims when they were signed un PonyCanyon. It’s double-CD with the title “The Pilgrims Meet Carburetor Dung”. “The cover looks like some cheap mat rock CD!,” said my jounalist friend.
And so I called up the InterGlobal people and they said that they bought the rights to rerelease the album through somebody in VSP. Is VSP still going? I heard that the company has changed the name or something. That Dung recording rights is owned by VSP BUT the songs are all ours! So they have rereleased it without our consent and even our knowledge! Now we are trying to get to talk to the people from VSP and see what’s up. I think the band deserves to be compensated, some royalty money and publishing.
Anyway, I have been gong to some record stores looking for the CD but still failed to find them. I should look harder next time.
Whatever it is, if you find it, remember that the band is not being paid a single sen from this release. If you have a copy, rip it up into mp3s, zip it up and put on the net for free download!
BTW: there’s a review by some clueless journalist in The Star here
