Same here mate. I reckon he'll be back shortly with a resolution.

My guess is something got fucked up out of his control (we know there were stresses) and now he doesn't want to show his face until he can make things right again.

I've been there before...
This is prob the most likely and logical explanation. I don't think Dave is dishonest. He has pressed about 7 or so records many on pre-order basis. If he wanted to skank people he could have done ages ago - in fact if he did it with the Spirit Of Space repress he would have made more money (as it was a double lol).

Plus if he was doing a runner he'd throw away his sim card and not be answering the phone to various people. In fact I was even in talks to do a project with him years ago. I think he is a genuine guy who loves the music and wants to have these classics coming out on his very own record label for people to enjoy. But unfortunately something has gone wrong and he needs to let people know if its something which is beyond his control - if its not his fault he should speak up.

An explanation of what he has told people on the phone or a brief "sit-rep" on the forum would be good to add a bit of re-assurance. Come on Dave just a brief paragraph will suffice mate ;)

his explanation was outlined earlier in this same thread...

he agreed the release in principal with tim taylor, got pre-orders on the back of it, by the time they were organised tim had apparently changed his mind and was ignoring dave. dave is now sitting on all the cash (minus the paypal fees he was sure to stress) hoping tim will change his mind and allow it to go ahead. he's embarrassed by the whole situation and to make matters worse he pressed up the next 2 9t2r releases and has those at home cause he thinks he can't put them out first as it'll screw up the cat numbers!

it's a cluster fuck and no mistake and i have no idea why he wont come on line and tell everyone himself, instead of hiding behind this "got no net connection" bullshit and for others to pass on the message. after all he's quite happy to outline this on the phone, none of the above is rumour or gossip, and i believe he's told several callers the same thing. if it's 100% true then it's a shame he can't man up and get online visibly and explain it himself to everyone in 1 hit.

tbh i'll be calling him later today as i'm bored of the story and i want a fresh explanation and my money back if i'm not satisfied with what i hear. ie. if it's "i'll be online in 2 weeks" or similar. enough is enough

if he has pressed 'future' ep's i am sure people would accept them as a substitute... i too don't think dave is doing a runner so-to-speak -> but surely it deserves a simple post to explain. everyone on here is pretty understanding etc (more-or-less :)) so i really do not see the need for any ambiguity...

if the artist is going back on his word then that ain't daves' fault.

anyways let's see what happens.

Send everyone who ordered 9T2R 005 a copy of 006 or 007.

Problem solved.

What if it's tracks that people don't want?

If Tim has now denied him to press the tunes are originally agreeing, then that's all that he needs to say on here & either refund or offer one of those presses if people actually want the tunes that are on them instead.

Local libraries give free internet access...... plus you can always use a internet cafe. So saying he can't access the net is a bit of a **ahem** bullcrap excuse.

Even I have lost patience with him to be honest. How hard is it. Who gives a fuck about cat numbers.....

Oi Elusive NO! & I'll give him a slap!

Just to highlight the fact that I really don't need this record that I paid for 15 months ago and will almost certainly never get - I have included the tune (via serato) in my latest mix for download here...
