  7. Legally, he had no reason to, as the stock was sold off to recoup the losses of the original company, and artists like us, who had licensed to Flying their copyrights that went into making that stock, were so far down the food-chain of creditors that we were never legally 'entitled' to anything from the fire-sale. However given that the rights to the music reverted to us on the demise of Flying and Cabbaged, and Shuki's subsequent selling of our work to the public in such numbers and at such prices, I feel that asking if he'd be willing to share in the proceeds was justified.
  8. It was Shu-ki who gave me the idea to give away our aLIVE album for free, before Basilisk took it up for Ektoplazm. Shu-ki had the last pressed copies of the CD which he'd bought off Flying Records distribution when they went bust, and was selling them as collectors items on his website for (I think, someone please correct me if I'm wrong) $144. He had over 50 of them. I wrote to him and asked him if there was any chance OOOD could share in the proceeds, seeing as we'd never been paid properly for the album when it was first released, and he said no. So after speaking to the guys in the band I encoded the album to MP3 and uploaded it to the world.
  9. FYI Drezz aka Nervasystem is still involved in music - he has an oldschool valve/tape recording studio here in Bristol. He DJd his oldschool stuff in Israel in the last year or so and is considering going back to writing a little electronic music, possibly even trance. Don't get your hopes up though.
  10. Merry Christmas to all Bleepsters! Here's our present for you - OOOD live @ Jellyfish, recorded on Nov 20th in a psy-non-trance stylee and including loads of new music as well as some of our recent releases. We hope you have as much fun listening to it as we did performing it! Share and enjoy... Just to reiterate the warning - this is not a psytrance live set! There's a couple of proggy tracks in there but most of it is electro/tech house/breaks. I know some of you might not enjoy it but I also know that some of you will, so this is for you guys. http://soundcloud.co...llyfish-nov2010 OOOD live @ Jellyfish, The Lab club, November 20th 2010 Personnel: Colin Bennun - keyboards, mix Steve Callaghan - guitar, keyboards Ramsay Melhuis - playback, FX Ryo Potier - percussion Tracklist: 1.

  11. Excellent, we agree! That's exactly what I was saying in my last post. It just sounded like you were trying to lay down rules for everybody about what was 'good' or 'bad', or about what was psychedelic or not, but obviously I was wrong. Of course it's fine to disagree, and to say whether or not you like something. Just don't diss other people for having other opinions About your comment about me learning from others on here who distribute free music... I have a present for you: http://www.ektoplazm...2008/oood-alive Hope you enjoy it! By the way, please call me Colin; 'OOOD' on it's own refers to the four of us in the band. Cheers!
  12. Heh it's not a career, not yet, just another outlet for the things inside me. One day maybe. But to your question - Sure, there's plenty of things I don't enjoy, but that doesn't mean they're 'bad'. If I enjoy something and someone else hates it, which one of us is right? BOTH of us, because in matters of taste and creativity, 'good' and 'bad' are not absolute and external, they come from inside us and we have no right to apply our standards to anyone else. Sure you can identify whether a piece of music is well-produced or not, but that doesn't necessarily have a bearing on the quality of the music represented by that production. And it's not a case of being 'well adjusted' or not; I will stand by your right to like - or not - any work of creativity you choose. You're an individual, with your own tastes. So am I. Just because I don't mistake my opinions for the facts, as it seems you do, doesn't mean that I don't find some things ugly, or that everything is beautiful and nice. But I'm aware that that's only my opinion of those things: my opinions are not necessarily the facts. Get this into your head and a world of sponteneity will open to you, beyond the rigid barrier of your expectations and prejudices. "Is Alien Jesus good"? Well it's not my favourite set of trance tracks for sure, but 'good'? I don't even believe that's a real question. Is a rose 'good'? How about if one of its thorns pokes your eye - is it still 'good'? The rose hasn't changed.
  13. Who said it would be anything to do with trance? I'm talking pure pop. I've already done a few things like this in the last few years, and will probably do more; although psytrance holds the biggest place in my heart I was a performing musician for 10 years before psy found me in 1994, and I never have - and never will - limit myself just to one genre. The main point is though - you don't get to choose what I (or Protoculture) does, and it's your expectations that cause your disappointment, not our music.
  14. I will make whatever music I want to make. You're welcome.
  15. I'm gonna start making teen-pop again, like I did back in the 80s, JUST to piss Procyon off.
  16. Looks like half the people commenting after Nate's post didn't even read it!
  17. You're welcome, it's our pleasure But... maybe I misunderstand your message, but we hever played live like this in Moscow or anywhere in Russia; the first time we played in your country was April 2009! Is that the time you mean? Mars... big thanks.
  18. I'm not sure, it could be hey. It could also be a friend of ours Simon, who was a fan for a long time before he became Steve's boss at work. It's a bit dark to tell... but if it's either of them I think it's probably Jez, after all we know for sure he was actually there at the time!
  19. Did you used to tuck your t-shirt into your pants? I did, and here's 54 minutes of visual proof, in 320Kbps MP3 audio quality: http://vimeo.com/17306995 Set list: Two Dawns Over Baleshwar Cobra Karmic Suture Silence Other World Kundalini Fluorostani Transcendance
  20. I hope so too! We're open to offers Thanks so much for your kind words. FYI, our live shows incorporate much more live percussion than our recordings; we make our tunes in the studio in much the same way that many other acts do, and then add the liveness on top when we perform. Also, the way we perform now is very different from how we used to do it in the 1990s; I'm making a new thread for a video of a live set from that time, just for the nostalgia.
  21. High all...I posted this in the thread that Insejn started about our Oddball release, but I thought it would be worth putting here too. You can now download or stream OOOD's live performance on the main floor at Boom Festival 2010 from my Soundcloud page. I don't know if you can embed the Soundcloud player here, but here's the link: http://soundcloud.co...m-festival-2010 Blurb: The first 30 minutes of this recording is the live soundtrack to "Grow Your Own", a film by Anita Shukla - www.anitashukla.com .This version plays at the correct speed! Track listing: 1. Oddball (Original mix) - Broken Robot Records 2. Little Big Life - Unreleased 3. Eye Of The Beholder (feat. Ott) - Organic Records 4. The Tube (Grow Your Own mix) - Unreleased 5. Frogology - Frogadelic Records 6. Durka Durka - Phar Psyde Records 7. Inner Inca - Unreleased 8. The Philosopher's Tone - Unreleased Keyboards/Mix - Colin Bennun Guitar/Keyboards - Steve Callaghan Percussion - Ryo Potier Playback/FX/Samples - Ramsay Melhuish In conjunction with the filmmaker Anita Shukla we're very pleased to be able to include the 30-minute film "Grow Your Own" as a part of the OOOD/Voice of Cod live/DJs offering to festival and party promoters looking for something eclectic and psychedelic beyond the Industry Standard rinse-and-repeat. If you're an event organiser and you want something special to engage the eyes as well as the dancing feet, and to make people think as well as feel, please contact us for more details.
  22. That's pretty bloody amazing - inspirational, in fact. But I'd like to see them keep it up over a 2-hour continuous live set, with proper variation.
