Following a copyright complaint made by the IFPI in London in regards to The Acid Folk Vol. 2, all of the mix CDs posted on this here blog have now been deleted. Also, to be on the safe side, all individual MP3 files have also been deleted from the blog. Apologies to all concerned.

    Ah, that’s a shame. Thanks very much for your efforts over the years, I’ve really enjoyed listening to them.

    Yeah, it’s a drag, particularly as I was working on a new Rap in the 90s mix but it’s probably for the best, all things considered.

    What a bunch of horse shit. Like they were going to somehow not benefit from that sort of thing.

      Well, y’know Dave, it does seem petty and it was certainly unexpected but I was doing something slightly naughty and I got called on it. I can hardly complain, can I?

        Technically, I suppose so. But. It’s nonsense, the notion that such not-well-known acts would like less exposure via blog/mixtape.

    Interestingly, a friend of mine claims he got a file deleted that he’d posted on his blog, even though IT WAS ONE OF HIS BAND’S ALBUMS! Apparently, he’d mentioned a reasonably well-known act in the description and said act’s people had the file removed from Mediafire.

    Lesson learned: the people/algorithms doing this stuff for bands/labels aren’t terribly detail-oriented. My guess is some copyright robot saw the name Roy Harper (or whoever, I don’t actually know) in the track-listing for that mix and sent an automated complaint to Mediafire.

    End of an era. Oh well.
