Gez Varley legal action against warp


Recommended Posts

iirc if you want to validate this case in a court of law you need to provide a 192kH soundwave demonstrating that you are the True Creator.

so i'm very optimistic.

Does anyone want to join me in suing Warp for releasing Campfire Headphase?  It will be an easy win.

I don't know what to think of it. Do artistes even make 10000£ these days just by selling records? I don't think so. He should feel blessed his music got out there and even made a buck of it. Prob every musician today gotta have a job to make end meet.
He should be gratefull instead of trying to destroy warp records

Does the fundraiser mean he's given up on the legal action?

I don't think so - I think he's fallen on hard times and is asking for help, using the claim he is owed royalties as a sympathy plea.

The fact is, the record is pushing 30 years old - surely he's had income since then and this 20K in royalties surely isn't the reason he's struggling now (otherwise this would have come up far earlier).

I'd be interested in knowing what the Rhythm dispute has to do with all this (unless his claim is that since they got out of that deal, the royalties paid may have been based on the original 10K deal and no residuals came in after the new deal (which seemed to exclude the artist) was done.

Ooh that's good stuff. Are they even different versions to the Warp releases? 😂

No, and not really that rare either, all tracks have many sources in the LFO discography.

We seem to have an answer. Gone from Bandcamp, gone from my Bandcamp collection, so quite effectively purged.

Did you get your money back?

No, but I've still got it listed in Bandcamp's Purchased listing; following the link produces the Deleted artist popup.

      Well, LFO - Sheath has no thread here.
      Track 1 - Blown - is currently blowing my mind. 18 years late. I don't know why it happened, must appeared on shuffle, suddenly it was stuck in my head. Good stuff.
      Back in those days, I was like "meh", skipped over some tracks, forgot about it. Same already happened for Advance. I think LFO were "past" back then, we were on other IDM trips I guess.
      What about you, (contemporary witnesses of) WATMM? Any preferences on Sheath?

      From LFO's eponymous release to Hudson Mohawke's 'Chimes' to be released next month, there has been 24 years of music, listen to a selection of those releases in that time via the Warp25 playlist on Spotify.
