The Mars Volta's Cedric Bixler-Zavala Comments on Recent Vinyl...

Posted by - 10:41 PM on 05/16/14
The Mars Volta's Cedric Bixler-Zavala sounds off on recent vinyl reissues for the band -- commenting, "some idiot is pocketing the money" and "there will be a proper reissue of early Volta records [...] when we do release the early volta records they will be far superior in packaging and we will get the money."

I feel like this has been an oddly recurring issue lately with bands.

Bootlegging, like De-Loused and Kanye West's Graduation, or also records being legally repressed without the (supposed) knowledge of the artists, like Cartel's Chroma and Straylight Run's self-titled LP?

After looking at this bootleg, I cannot help but think obviously this is fake. Volta would have repressed all the records or said something about this officially if they had their hands in this. I'm extremely disappointed in MOV and Shopradiocast!

I bought the ShopRadioCast version of De-Loused, now I wish I didn't.

MOV is not a bootleg and I can almost guarantee it is of very high quality.

It's not that these are bootlegs, I'm sure SRC produced these completely legally, it's just a bummer that they do it without consent or involvement from the bands. All of the re-issue labels are the same - SRC, Hot Topic, ETR, etc. And it's a bummer the market completely supports them. They're just making money off of someone else's product, it's weird.

Isn't that what a label does? If you don't wan't people using your music, don't give up the rights. These kids jump into these deals and end up owning nothing. Then 7 years down the line people are licensing their music without the bands consent, but it doesn't matter because it's legally not their music. SRC and MOV are in the business of selling records, not being bros with bands. MOV AND SRC have put out some of my favorite and high quality presses.

SRC did not produce these or press them or anything, seems they have an exclusive distribution deal with MOV or something, but as far as I know they do not have anything to do with MOV's pressing of these albums.

Glad I sat out on the Deloused pre-orders then. I'll wait for a newer repress.

Where's the JTate patrol on this one?

Seriously, everything you need to know is found in the phrase "and we will get the money"

These "bootlegs" are pretty damn high quality. So I wonder how much Cedric will charge for their pressings.

What do I need to patrol? I agree with him. This is an on going issue in music and one of the most respected and savvy men in music agrees with me.

Gonna call Cedric a "whiny bitch" too?
