Yes, I was just joking btw :)

Can't really say anything constructive, as I don't know the details of the case.

I'd rather Chris start producing again. Prefer new songs to lawsuits.

I've seen them in '05 & last nye , both dj sets .

They did a PA at Bangface in Electrowerkz about 2 years ago, think they did it at the weekender as well, suits, masks, the lot, have seen the PA advertised quite a few times in the last few years, probably why Chris is getting the arse.

If they can get round a table Mark should just buy the name from Chris as he aint interested anymore and Mark was making a living from it.

Must be more than meets the eye with this one.......

Id suggest the split is the cause of the animosity between the 2 he seems very bitter.

Right time to put some of you straight on this, i am very close friends with Chris Peat, i know the full extent to why the duo split, i am not going divulge this information as it's not my place to, but i do feel how ever that it is my duty as a friend of Chris's to defend him.
Altern 8 was founded by Chris, not by Chris and Mark. The name Altern 8 is copyrighted and the copyright is owned by Chris Peat. By law every set since the duo split has been illegal Dj set or PA set.
Also Mark Archer has had various serpinas against him for using the name Altern 8, where he has agreed not to use the name unless Chris was present, but after a certain amount of time Mark has gone back to using the name.
There is various legal cases which i am not at liberty to mention or discuss that Chris has put in motion.
Please do not accept any advertisement of Altern 8 on an event or flyer as a LEGAL set, as it is not, it is not the event promoters fault, they too are being deceived by MARK ARCHER, who in my eyes is a CRIMINAL.

Thanks Spesh and everyone else who is still showing an interest. I have been busy as an IT Specialist for the past 10 years for the NHS and now for a private Healthcare company and still have a recording studio where I produce stuff for me and my friends. I do not have to justify myself here or anywhere else for that matter, however it seems that some people are a little confused and I feel yet again obliged to post (this is a rare occasion).

Mark Left the band and every time I try to speak with him about our career or anything else for that matter he puts the phone down on me without any resolution, in fact as soon as I say "It's Chris", he says "Chris Who" and I say "Chris Peat", the line goes dead. He does not want to communicate with me in a civil manner, believe me I have tried.

Other comments here I would like to reply to:
"Slo-Moshun", lol crock of sh1t, this was his first attempt at using someone else in the industry after me, you play it, you hear it !

Next : If you have listened to anything actually produced by him you will clearly hear a difference between "the keyboard player" being there and not, he can DJ don't get me wrong but actually playing an instrument, lol, don't make me laugh. I can play pretty much anything you put in front of me to a low standard in some cases but I'll always knock up a tune from my head or play something that you would know.

I have posted a tune up on soundcloud for your ears to enjoy its here http://soundcloud.com/chrispeat/acid-lift and this is the only thing I am prepared to post at this time else I will be giving away my material, again !

Thanks again for clarifying how you all feel but if circumstances were different as they were I would still be prepared to rejoin the band and make some more exciting ground breaking material and perform LIVE (this was my favourite part), however Mark just does not want this and really should stop / desist the performances that are very damaging to the name in my opinion. You see a flyer for Altern8 and you get a DJ Set, you see a flyer for Altern8 LIVE / PA and you get Mark and the crew miming to some tape recording or DJ Set which was prepare earlier, there is no spontaneity, there is no love and there is no honour in his actions. It's a perfect scam, any monkey can wear a mask and mime, aha there he is.

Fair enough. Can I ask, does he make much money when he's out being Altern8? Is this what bothers you? Or is it just the fact that he's taking the piss. I suppose he's got to earn a living somehow, but then I would assume you lot are around that same age as me and should have ordinary jobs, as you do.

I'm probably not, im only 23, but i am the owner of Bounce-Inc UK (Record's), and i am a Dj/Producer. Chris is a close friend of mine and i feel disgusted that Mark has got away with everything for so long, it's just not right, it's the fact that Mark has been illegally performing as Altern 8 that all the fuss is over, and he's been doing it because he is incapable of achieving the same standard of music that was produced when the duo were together and that's because most of the music was produced by Chris.

Says it all to be fair, if you started something copyrighted it in your name, produced most of the music yourself, but then someone else who doesnt own any of the copyright was using it all without your permission, how would you feel???

Why can't you just sell Mark the rights to the name? Almost like a franchise, so you obviously still paid when your music is used, on comps etc, but Mark pays you in order to be able to use the name for PAs / Live DJ sets?
