I'm the one you're referring toWhat most people don't realize is that Contact is actually a concept album, in that all of the tracks are linked by a conceptual theme, an underlying thread which runs through the whole album. Which admittedly is a little tenuous at times, but it's there nonetheless. It was picked up by a few people, one reviewer in particular completely got the whole plot...
It is nice to be here. It is a great site. It has a nice positive vibe.Billy, I'm glad to see you here!
Ah! So it was you huh?I'm the one you're referring to
Oh, I am glad that you like itI'm trying to make a proper review of your new CD, though due to constant lack of time it's going veeeeryyy slowly. It will be an extremely positive review
No problem Antic, shoot...antic said:Thanks for the reply
Since we've got you here, I'll use this opportunity to ask you some questions, if you don't mind ...
Correct. The next Cosmosis album I have already started work on. There will not be the big three year gap between Trancendance and the next Cosmosis album, like there was between Contact and Trancendance.antic said:When can we expect a new Cosmosis and Mumbo Jumbo albums? From what I read on Trancendance's cover it was meant to be released in 2004, so you probably have some new tunes already?
Yeah, Junya is incredibly prolific and has released a lot of output over a very short time, so I can understand your burnout on that particular sound.antic said:It would be great to hear some new tracks (but stay away from Phantasm' compilations - I can't stand those Eskimo tunes anymore...)
In these days of P2P and hugely reduced sales, record companies simply cannot give the advances that I require for an album. So I had to cut out the middleman. I set up Holographic Records mainly as a vehicle to release my own music. So you can see it is a neccesary response to deal with a recent and very large problem i.e P2P massively undermining sales.antic said:How is your new label doing at the moment? Any new artists you plan to release or is it only one-artist label?!
Duckman. IMO as an intelligent cartoon, second only to The Simpsons. It is pity it is not better known.antic said:Where are the samples in "Stormy Monday" from?! I loooovve that track
It's an interesting idea. I will have a chat to my distributor to see if it is viable.antic said:Do you plan to restock your old releases somehow? I got all of the albums, though I'd be really interested in buying the EPs or singles. Now when you have a label, maybe it would be a good idea to make some kind of 1 or 2 CD compilation of your remastered off-albums releases (Howling at the moon, Reality Check, Caves of medusa etc.). I'd buy this without hesitation!
