Looks like you've been bumped, his Ebay shop's full of those dodgy 4-track "Black Knights DJ Only" whites, along with that Foul Play Vol 2 bootleg: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FOUL-PLAY-VOLUME- ... m153.l1262

Probably all ripped from vinyl as well.

i put it on my turntables and yep, it's a good pressing. still can't work out whether it's a repress or a really top quality bootleg, but i don't really care either way, to be honest.

Making money from bootlegging.

:-(

Doesn't seem right when you consider all the bother elusive and others have had trying to do it legitimately.

neil trix went on DOA a few years back to ask if there was demand for a repress and what people would like to see, but nothing materialised.

Just on general principle I can't condone bootlegging...

...but if you're desperate for a tune you'll give in eventually.

And BITD enough producers got stiffed on compos etc (myself included) by so-called respectable labels - so I'm sitting on the moral fence here...

i've been waiting for a mint copy of this at a decent price for years, so i'm going to buy this bootleg (if it even is a bootleg). morally, i don't have too much of a problem with it if they're bootlegging something nobody is making any money from anyway. the only thing i find annoying is if it's a bootleg then they're trying to pass it off as an original -- it has the same tracks and catalogue number.

So maybe you will be happy if i take your wages when you get paid...

We struggled back in the day to get money from distributors and shops... when there was no internet to sell from.. and you say its ok for someone to bootleg... cheers mate. You obviously have no clue of why people like myself made music for the scene 20 yrs ago...

Enjoy your bootleg, its like wearing a dodgy lacoste t-shirt, your the only one who knows its a rip off.. and that make its feel worse !!!..

Just like the Vapour remix of the core that i did not even know about till someone called me.... absolute piss take...

Oh they joys of the music industry.. and i still work in it !! ha ha.

I think a good way to counter this would be if you made the FBD project stuff for sale digitally.. preferably using a good digital distributor or even a site like bandcamp which ensures you get a higher cut of the profits. I know it's not anywhere near as nice as vinyl, but I bet people who either have never found the record(s) or who caved in and bought a bootleg would be happy to spend some more quid on digital copies if they knew the money was going direct to you. I know I'd buy it all even though I own a legit copy of "terminate" (at least based on the discogs description of the bootleg) and a possibly-bootleg-possibly-legit copy of "The core" (which I bought thinking was legit).

I'd be super keen to repress some of the FBD Project stuff on my label if you are ever keen to put out some of the back catalogue Neil?

who are these people? I never understood... years back, when Jungle Warfare and all these other bootleggers were pumping out EP after EP of stolen tunes, selling them in stores all over North America and England.. I couldn't understand how they got away with it. I would have thought that sooner or later, one of the scores of people they ripped off would find out who they were, and catch up with them.
