Chris – must try harder. Forest records gives you 6/10
we're into the baby-tape combo. Maybe the baby with a scribbled out mixtape on its t-shirt. And the back of the baby on the back.
little lamp records
dan says i'm not going to fucking sit and fucking listen to fucking myspace. So we'll get a cd from bill.
pollen – submitted the ambient tracks for the 7inch, dan has got a cd off them. We've now got it on i-tunes, everyone burn off cds. More music at http://www.pollen-music.org.uk
Everyone will listen to the cd and see if we want to release it. We will discus it on the bb.
We'd like to do compilation, possibly using some tracks from the ultra-rare copsed cd, + new stuff. We would like an easter no 1 this year. We will solicit tracks from people we think are good. People who play at forest only. It will be called 'sounds of the forest' and there will be a whale on the front. And when you play it backwards it will have whale noises.
We need to set up a firstname.lastname@example.org
jane will ask duncan to set that up
everyone will tell people we like
we need to make a contract saying how the rights work. Everything issued on FR remains property of the artist etc.
dan will think about drawing up contracts
dan has an email from keith.
We need to send a studio master, confirming which tracks for A and B sides.
We will decide on the bb which tracks for which sides
we need a catalogue number that has been cleared with (MCPS), artist and title.
Dan will call MCPS – their number is 020 7580 5544
we need to give the vinyl a name too.
But more important – what says the groove???
one foot in the groove/close to the groove
as gay as cheese
lock down your area
if you can read this, you're too close to the groove, play the record again
they say the groove's a fine and quiet place
but none i think do there embrace
deadline = one week today. Friday. Think about it.
dan will find out when it will be ready by
we could start making covers as soon as. We'll talk to magda about getting on it. Maybe we can make a stencil of magda's picture.
We're going to book a seat on Branson's ship for our first record.
We'll have one. All the bands will play. By weblink if necessary.

let's do some. We'll start some threads on the bb about distros.
