Blacksmoke

November 7, 2003

Jimmy Cauty of KLF fame has released an EP for free download along with cover and CD artwork.

http://www.crapola.com/blacksmoke/diymp3ep.htm

The website makes some noise about the download being a kick against the likes of the RIAA and and edgy, innovative, radical move on the part of the Blacksmoke Organisation:

Certain individuals in the corporate music industry subscribe to the belief that downloading and burning audio material from mp3 digital files should be a punishable offence... and that it may even destroy the music business we love and cherish... heaven's above! Unfortunately, until they provide the music you really want, you're in charge. The future of this industry is now in your capable (and slightly sticky) hands. It's your responsibility to change it. Sorry about that.

However, upon listening to it, it's clear that the real reason it's available for free download is that it's too crap to charge for.

Wow - T Nutkins? Is that Terry Nutkins of TV's Really Wild Show? I'm honoured! Bummer about you losing that finger, mate.

Seriously though, Cauty's output as part of the KLF pisses all over that Blacksmoke EP, for sure. Still, maybe I'm just saying that because I'm too into my Dadhouse ...
