Danger… Mouse!

No… not that one, although if you haven’t seen it yet, go check out the Grey Video… an excellent piece of work, made by as yet unknown hands.

The dangerous mouse in this case, sadly, is Disney, who, as owners of Hollywood Records, are the controllers of Queen’s catalogue in the USA. Disney have issued Waxy.org with a cease-and-desist order, due to their mirroring of our “Hip-Hopera”. They have been asked to remove all links to the 23 tracks by the 23rd November.

However, as Boing Boing and Waxy have both already pointed out, Waxy aren’t actually hosting the files themselves, just linking to them, which isn’t the same thing at all.

Naturally, this is unfortunate, if not wholly unexpected, news.

    Waxy.org, not Waxy.com. Anyway, the “Dangerous Mouse” comment made me laugh.

    I found your album though the Boing Boing post, and all I can say is WOW! Absolutly some of the freshest sound I have heard in a long time. I’ve grabbed everything else I can from your site and look forward to hearing more. Absolutly inspirational.

    Your music has allowed for some of my most creative thoughts and visions in a long while. Completely refreshing, Awesome work. I’ll put in a blog entry on my site as soon as I get the chance.

    Come to Toronto!@!

    Until the end of November (or so long as I can), there will be another mirror here.

    Andy – Whoops! Sorry about that – Corrected!

    Jason – Thank You! It’s always good to know we’re stiffing people’s brains up in a good way ;)

    Skeller – Cheers! I’ll add it to the list on the download page.

    Sorry, that should have been “stirring”, not stiffing. Can one have a freudian typing slip?

  6. Serge K. Keller says:

    Right, as announced I cannot host a mirror anymore in December on my site. But there are other mirrors listed on waxy.org, so the ride can continue.

    To Eric: thanks for the great music, and if in future you need a temporary mirror for other cds of yours, give a shout!

    …and thank you Serge – it’s all well appreciated :)
