Alternative Tentacles vs. Church of Zer: AT called the police and hid behind the government's skirt

Yo, seems like all the trouble on this blog since this morning are due to the bad breath of Jello Biafrass. He and his cubicle coworkers are not happy that this vile pirate blog posted 30 years old music by Th'Inbred. AT still needs to cash in on it (even though they were not involved with releasing the LPs back then).
Look, Alternative Tentacles called the police to defend their right$. Money bad, capitalism bad, system bad, except sometimes.
These assholes did not even contact me first so that I'd take the Th'Inbred post down.
Don't know if this is related to the malware warnings that have also popped up today. Sorry about all that.

I'll be sure to throw away all my DKs and Guantanamo School Of Medicine (sucks anyway) records tonight. Actually no, I too want my money back. I'll put them up for sale for one cent on Discogs.





Death by starvation to fake punks! There are better things in life. Fuck you and farewell unzer AT, unzer DKs.
Listen to Flag Of Democracy and Brutal Truth instead.

  1. Les fils de pute.
    Impressionnant, même les sites que tu mets dans tes liens sont bloqués, j'ai jamais vu ça. Church Of Zer est désormais un virus pour google, faut insister trois-quatre fois pour y arriver.
    Quand je pense qu'encore récemment je leur achetais des disques que j'avais téléchargé. Je pense que je vais en revendre une paire, ceux des DK en premier, histoire de me faire du fric sur leur dos, et je me payerai ensuite les même réédités sur Manifesto Records.
    Ah les bouffeurs de merde, quels fils de pute.
    Jello Biaffra = Philippe Val.
    Est-ce qu'il se rappelle qu'il disait à une époque "Home fucking is killing prostitution" ?

    Thank you, Dear Zer, for your patience and inflexibility in dealing with difficulties. I was relieved from the heart, when I again saw your blog on my screen. Keep it up!
    Shame to avid "punks"! Dead Biaffras.

  3. Fuck Jello ! He's as much Punk today as your average conservative capitalist dick ! Still remember a story a former friend who worked at Amoebas record store in SF when Biafra showed up to buy records and loudmouthingly demanded to talk to the owner because he wanted discount ! When told that the owner wouldn't come too soon he said that he then will be waiting for him. What a greedy bastard !

  4. Jello=total hypocrite. Talk about greedy, I love how the AT website used to have a page asking people to mail a dollar in as a royalty payment if you had a DK logo tatooed on your body. Keep up with your excellent blog! You've posted many of my favorites and introduced me to even more!

  5. Pas de bol, moi ils m'ont contacté à chaque fois qu'ils voulaient que je vire un truc, le dernier en date c'était pour la disco d'Alice Donut. J'ai depuis remis les liens en place, je les emmerde profondément!!! Aussi loin que je me souvienne, dans chaque commande passée chez eux et même coûteuse, jamais un petit geste, un sticker ou autre... écœurant. Les Th'Inbred je les ai partagé aussi mais c'est passé à l'as, d'ailleurs çà me fait marrer que dans leur procès-verbal ils parlent de deux CD, ces cocus!
    Bref, la croix et la bannière pour arriver jusqu'ici (moi aussi je suis sur chrome), çà doit être l'équivalent de la chaîne de clous des gendarmes pour crever les motivations?
    Je te souhaite qu'ils n'aillent pas plus loin dans la connerie, çà pourrait vite devenir pire que frustrant...

  6. Tiens, et le premier truc qui m'est venu en tentant de rallier l'église c'est: On lui fait des misères à l'ami Zer? (c'était pour la note humoristique, faut détendre l'atmosphère à défaut du sphincter)...
    Je crois que ce qui me fait le plus chier avec le sacro-saint Jello c'est qu'il sous-emploie Ralph Spight dans son groupe inintéressant; et coquin de sort, pour la tournée de cet été il s'est joint les services de Larry Boothroyd! Putain c'est pas demain la veille qu'on aura droit à une galette brûlante des Victims Family. Shit!

  7. With that bravado he can now appeal to a large slice of the post/ex-radical/alternative electors and once again try and run for some very important political position. Bla-bla-bla über alles...

  8. Anyway, I reactivated the Th'Inbred post without the sacred AT comp CD, that I am going to resell pronto too.

  9. I called the AT phone number and told them as someone who saw Jello in the mid 80's they pulled a raw deal. Lawyers have wrecked music.

  10. Hi there, maybe you can ask for help from the AT Legal Defense Fund, which was founded to stop censorship concerning the HR Giger-Poster that was included with the Frankenchrist album of DK. hahahahaha, just kidding, keep up the good work!!!!!! cheers, corehead666, The Netherlands

  16. Je suis francophone mais pour le bénéfice de nos amis anglophones je vais poursuivre en anglais.

    This is kinda funny when you think of the court battles between this sack of gelatinous pork by-product, sugar,colouring,artificial flavor and who the fuck knows what( yep, you guessed it, it's jello...) and the rest of DK...As the late great Frank Zappa once said, lsd is the only drug that can transform a hippie into a yuppie...

    I remember a song from My dog popper aptly named rock stars are assholes wich starts with a poke at this
    corporate fuck. The lyrics are also quite suggesting...

    One thing. As illegal as is it that shit we're doing,wouldn't be equally wrong to manage to use your internet server to claim your site is malwared? Just a thought...Because it's not just you, it's all of us who are wrongling lead to believe that crap. It's been at least 15 minutes i've been here writing this and my laptop hasn't crashed! Well won't that beat all...

    Anyway, cheers mate, j'en boé une frette en pensant à toé. Here's the song in question. Playable on site.

  17. I cant belive it. I thought JB and AT were the last hope, but at last they are inside the s**t of the empire.
    Anyway, thanks for share and iluminated us with your/our/their music.

  18. Always sad when yor heroes or whatever one choose to call people you look up to shows their true face. Especially when that someone represented many of the values that you find to be right and true. Heard rumours before about Mr Jello before but always refused to accept them as truth. This internetthing is sometimes nothing more than shit-talking, rumourspreading, lying machine from hell. Cant say i will stop listening to his music, because much of it is awesome, totally groundbreaking stuff. If isomeone choose to throw out every record with people who are assholes the size of their recordcollection would be a whole lot smaller. Sometime ignorance is bliss, and sometimes you must overlook someones behaviour, political views and just look at the art they produces.
    That beeing said, fuck you Jello... Kaptain Brock and you can take a spaceship to the edge of time...

    Nik Turner rules and the bass assassin Alan Davey destroys whole galaxies with his thunder of bass... TRUE Hawkwind for real and for ever...

    1. Agreed. I was a DKs fan too. Love the NoMeansNo record, and the Melvins one, and Lard etc. And yes I would probably only own 4 LPs if I scrutinized the level of assholity of every musician I listen to. However in this case I was directly attacked and denounced to the copyrights police mafia, without even a warning or request to take the copyright-raping post down. Plus I suspect them to have sent this blog to the black lists of malware databases.

  22. Très mauvais feeling il y a quelques semaines à Lausanne où Biafra était invité pour quelques jours où un comportement de "rock star" est totalement indigne de l'image que je m'étais faite du bonhomme.

  23. I may be a bit behind the ball as i only discovered this blog and had not heard of ATs seemingly fascist take on dealing with copyright issues, and as a 'punk' label i would've hoped for a more human way of handling the situation. I can barely find anything about the other bloggers that got told to take down songs apart from a few scattered facebook posts, recon you could e-mail me the details zer?

    1. All teh details are here. I fyou follow the first link, you'll se ethat AT filed a copyright infrigement complaint and had my Th'Inbred post removed by Google (Blogpost). I was never contacted about this, just saw the post disappear one morning. Let me know if you need any more info...

      Delete
  24. I've always treasured our friend jello as a somewhat untouchable hero, and one of the few who complains in a GREAT way. Ihope this infrigment claim was not imposed by him, i have a hard time believing it , he is truly the last hero of freedom.

  25. Hi-
    Jesse Townley/Alternative Tentacles here. When we release authorized discographies and/or reissues of KBD bands like Th' Inbred, False Prophets, The Dicks, etc, we search out music blogs like yours and ask in the comments for the full downloads to be pulled down & replaced with a link to the reissue's page on our site. (With our most recent reissues of The Dicks LPs & 7"s, we started offering free promo tracks to music blogs so that there'll still be some tracks available for free)

    Why? Because that way the bands whose music fans like the visitors to this site can actually make a little bit of money, AND you all can hear the music in the remastered and/or restored version that the band intended you to hear it. No longer is a scratchy rip of a beloved 7-inch the only way to hear that KBD single.

    Off hand, I've no idea if your blog was contacted before the DMCA notice was sent. (My ex-co worker was in charge of these notices and I'm checking to see if he tried contacting you before sending the DMCA notice)

    For other on-line blogs who clearly not fan-run, let alone punk-run, we just send DMCA notices immediately. There are definitely people who don't care about the bands at all and it's usually really clear from the 1st glance which ones these are. Those blogs don't give a fuck about the music and they definitely don't care if a particular band is taken down.

    We feel really strongly as a label that copyright and free/inexpensive access to art are not incompatible and we try to balance the two. That's why we try to make a distinction between different types of blogs who host our bands' music. (We're not perfect and sometimes make mistakes- that may have happened here)

    Please support your favorite bands by purchasing their music from authorized record labels or directly from the bands themselves. To the owner of this blog, please consider substituting direct links to the AT site for any live links left on your site.

    P.S.- You used to do what I'm talking about back in 2009. In this post about Jello/DOA & Lard, you offer links to AT & a sample song or 2.

    http://churchofzer.blogspot.com.au/2009/09/jello-biafra-nomeansno-melvins-doa-lard_08.html

    That's friggin' awesome and what we'd love you to continue. If you want to work WITH us, we could even work out something like sending you tracks to post that are cleaned up and ready to go for current and future KBD releases. 2 upcoming ones are FRANTIX and REALLY RED, along with a super-secret one that probably won't happen until 2015.

    E-mail Dominic my co-worker about this. I'm also sending him a link to this page so he can see what the current situation is. comm at alternativetentacles.com

    ReplyDelete
  26. PS- This would also mean you could have some permanent downloads on your site again because we'd know, oh hey, it's Church of Zer. These are all a-okay and we'd skip to the next site.

    ReplyDelete
  27. PPS- Today is the 1st I've heard of this thread or situation. We would've responded more quickly if we'd known that there was a discussion like this going on, or realized that we'd made a mistake and sent a DMCA notice to a fan blog before asking for the music to be taken down.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I appreciate you taking the time to explain things. Really, I never received any request from AT to take down the Th'Inbred link before getting the DMCA notice (and a warning from Blogspot).
      Another label carrying 80s punk releases recently managed to destroy the content of this blog (see here) without asking me to take down the links. So no more permanent links anymore and all punk labels are now safe from my piracy.

      Delete
    2. If you can add my reply to the original post so that people see our label's response, I would appreciate it.

      My co-worker said that after the take-down request went thru, you and I corresponded briefly. I don't remember it & can't find it in my e-mail. Regardless, I hope you and your readers have a better understanding of how we're trying to straddle supporting our bands by paying them and encouraging people to check them out by offering a FEW free songs.

      As I wrote before, you (and other fan bloggers) are strongly encouraged to work WITH Alternative Tentacles. E-mail Dominic at the e-mail above.
