This is the End??

Buster Shuffle is NOT to blame for my account being suspended. The actual email I got that informed me of the suspension stated that it was due to having a file titled Buster Shuffle.
I don't think it was unreasonable to jump to the conclusion that I did, but I admit I shouldn't have been so quick to accuse the band itself.

I got an email from them (basically what they wrote in the comments) which ended with them saying that my post accusing them of this is untrue and unfair. They are absolutely right and this is my open apology. It was done out of anger and I never bothered to even try to contact them first to see if this was their doing.

I'm still debating whether or not to buy their new cd. I'd hate to think that I'd be handing my money over to the record label or distributors who did this. I do recommend that if you are able to get either album from the band itself to do so. The first one was great so I imagine the new one will not disappoint.
(I'm not just trying to do damage control here, I actually am a fan and I do think their music should be heard, that's why I did the post in the first place.)

This is the first single from the new album:



As for the blog...I'm still not sure what to do. Half of the emails I get are people asking me to reupload things. If I keep it going the way it is I'll be getting emails for every file at some point. I don't have a lot of time for the blog as it is right now. I still have a lot of rarities that I want to share with you. (I just realized the other day that I have never posted the Lodgers demo tape yet), and in the near future I'll have more time than I do now but when I do have time to sit at the computer the bulk of the time is spent answering emails. Now, with the added task of having to re-upload everything, I won't have much time at all to post new things.

[...to be continued tomorrow...and Thank You everybody who took the time to comment, I will respond to all comments tomorrow] [...es tarde, estoy cansado, pero mañana todo esto se traducirá en Español...pero Buster Shuffle NO es culpa de mi cuenta está suspendida]

Fuck them motherfuckers.

You fought the good fight, but why suffer these pricks that can't see the forest from the trees?

Thank you for all the music you've given me and my listeners over the years!

HELLO ITS BUSTER SHUFFLE HERE,

WE ARE SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR BLOG AND UNTIL TODAY WE HAD NEVER HEARD OF YOUR BLOG AS WE LIVE IN LONDON.
WE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR BLOG BEING SHUT DOWN. WE WANT ALL PEOPLE TO SHARE OUR MUSIC AND WE THINK BLOGS ARE GREAT FOR SPREADING THE WORD ON NEW MUSIC.

WE CAN ONLY ASSUME THAT SOMEONE WHO DISTRIBUTES OUR RECORD IN GERMANY IS RESPONSIBLE. WE ARE TRYING TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED AND WILL LET YOU KNOW AS SOON WE DO. APOLOGIES AGAIN BUT THIS IS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MEMBERS OF BUSTER SHUFFLE.

Please, BUSTER SHUFFLE ... Try to do everything possible to being returned to Tone and Wave mediafire your account active. . . This blog is essential for any lover of Ska and the only reason why you included them to download only a subject, was to make known the great music that makes BUSTER SHUFFLE. . . Not disappoint us, please

En Español :
Por favor, Sres. de BUSTER SHUFFLE...Traten de hacer lo posible para que le devuelvan a Tone and Wave su cuenta de mediafire activa . . . Este blog es esencial para todo amante del Ska y la única razón por la cual les incluyó a ustedes para descargar sólo un tema, fué para hacer conocer la muy buena música que BUSTER SHUFFLE hace . . .No nos decepcionen, por favor

This is completely ridiculous behaviour from a record label, at least Megabeat records had the decency to at least talk to you first

I think there is a youtube channel called Ska4Ever2012 that uploaded most of the stuff from this blog, so maybe people can go there to get their ska fix

The people who shut your blog down were called People Like You Records, let's all go and complain to them!

Mr Freeze said...

I follow your blog for a long time and as i already told this one of the best Ska blog on the whole internet!
Mr T&W, this is not the first storm here and you always stood up with pride. Why? Because you know that without you and other great persons Ska wouldn't be what it is today.
Your blog is part of history, avoiding to lose music memory and make it live for ever!
Cheer up mate! Many people support you!
