Voodoo Rhythm is in a bad situation. I've always liked what Reverend Beatman is doing with music. Visitors of this website probably know him best as the singer of The Monsters.
Here's the story about the bad situation his record company is in:
I have treated bands very fairly since I've started Voodoo Rhythm and have given them their records for cost price so that they could make a solid profit when selling their records on tour. I did approach the SUISA (Copyright Company, musicians' union) and informed them of the nature of my agreement with the bands. Unfortunately I never put it in writing.
Now that is exactly the problem: The SUISA demands payback of a total of 42.500 Swiss Franks (roughly 38.000 US $). Basically they want money for productions that had long been settled. The bitter irony is that bands of course prefer free copies of their album, yet the Suisa is oblivious to this fact and demand the money within 30 days. If we cannot meet their demands we might have to shut down business. Therefore we kindly ask for your support. Even if we can pay we will not be able to offer the bands the same deal as before.
We hope you can help us. We don't want to quit, we want to resume or work and our journey.
