    heres the story... the record label who took over music for nations have decided they do not want to release the DVD that we spent a long time preparing. so now i am looking into the possiblity of us releasing it soon ourselves, maybe selling it at a reduced price at gigs... this is only a possibilty at the moment...
    there will be a statement soon enough.

    thing is... under the old contract any song from alternative 4 or before, was not allowed on the dvd, so i dont mind doing a spot of editing and getting some of the older songs on there somehow. this is all just ideas at the moment. nothing is decided yet.

    wouldnt that like crack up the set you have now (i dunno if its a full show)?
    i mean, would be great, perhaps instead an addition of acoustic songs u werent allowed to..?

    hope u can find a good distributor, without a label, its tough, but there must be at least one favouring you
    good luck

    well theres footage from various places and i think the likes of fragile and angelica should be on there too. theres 3 acoustic songs at the moment but 4 were recorded so we'll see what we can do.

    It really weakens me to see how naive people are in this scene

    there should be a few, sure, like i said.
    doesnt it cost you more, if yer independent, in the end, than it will leave you with? $?

    How can it cost you more if youre receiving all the income directly, bypassing a label who would only give you a fraction of the dealer price? Anathema are an established band and people really want a new dvd from them, which is the whole point of this thread eh.

    ah i see, i thought having a label in between would ease things up for a band (distributing), and will take costs out of yer hands.
    but i see what u mean.
