I've been a loyal user to myspace for over 7 years, since the days of my old bands but as of today after they've crashed my browser for the X time, and countless spamming I realized its time to move on. Another reason why I updated the bandcamp page was discovering the tape rips thats floating around the internet. I'm not against file sharing, but some of the stuff I downloaded and checked were tape transfers from tape to digital. (The original recordings already gone through one generation of tape dubbing, so I believe the ones people are downloading for free are 2 generation tape dubs from the original sound files, some even played at wrong tape speed)
On the updated DB bandcamp page you can find older releases available now digitally, in its original sound file, as how I recorded it, and mixed it. Feel free to compare the files available on bandcamp and the ones you've downloaded from blogs.
The Fixture Records releases will remain on the fixture website, as they've switched from CDR's to digital downloads now, so its essentially the same, and they've always been really fair in paying me.
If you have any suggestions for the bandcamp DB site, feel free to let me know.

For those who wrote me about the tape not being delivered, I've tried writing to AL from Scotch tapes but have gotten no response. Al is a fisherman and is one of the nicest guys I've ever met, and at this point none of our friends could find him and we are quite worried about his safety more than anything else. Once I hear back from him I will post an announcement about the status of the tape and refund those who have paid but not received once I get in touch with AL. Again, terribly sorry about the tapes.
