The Universal Symphony
:: Posted by David S on Mon., Jan 14, 2013
As Sid has already announced, The Vicar and Punk Sanderson have joined DGM’s ongoing campaign against UMG’s many violations of the King Crimson catalogue (all too familiar to all diary readers).
Punk has taken the "Universal Symphony" emanating from DGMHQ and (with apologies to Monty Python and Bob Dylan) used it as the soundtrack for an unlikely protest video.
Please share with your enemies and even your friends. Perhaps a Youtube hit is what it takes.
FART FOR YOUR RIGHTS!
Record company breaks contract
Artist breaks wind
How can one small, mobile and not-very-intelligent unit fight the blast-door of lawyers that protect the world’s largest media company?
Many musicians and artists have faced the same problem, but few have worked their butts off quite like this to find a solution - fart outside the offices of their nemesis and post the video on YouTube.
Punk Sanderson, author of a series of semi-fictional exposes of the music industry, has filmed his protest: Fart For Your Rights!
Punk Sanderson, author of a series of semi-fictional exposes of the music industry, has filmed his protest: Fart For Your Rights! “It’s like the Occupy Movement, only smellier. We’ve called bankers, politicians and ‘phone-hackers to account – now it’s time for major record labels. They trample over musicians’ rights and rather than owning up and offering fair settlement, reach for expensive lawyers. It would cost over £300,000 to fight them in the courts – who’s got that kind of money?
So, armed with a battery of slogans - “Fart For Farts Sake,” “All You Need Is Wind,” “With A Little Fart From Your Friends” - the intention is to encourage Dinosaur Inc to own up, get ethical and improve business practices.
“The major record labels are happy enough chasing college kids who infringe their own copyrights. This campaign blows them towards taking their own copyright abuse seriously. Any artist can join the protest, get the iFart app on their ‘phone, and blast away in meetings with their record label. Or just trigger it anyway. We are on the scent of something big.
All Punk’s found-sounds are of organic origin.
