Hello new people !

When you qualify for downloads, please don't flog them on ebay. It may stop the generous people on here sharing their stuff. That would be a real shitter from those of us banished overseas who can't get to gigs. We rely on these kind people to keep us in touch.

No worries - but we have a download section on this site (you have to get 100+ posts) if we have reason to believe people are profiting from selling these recordings then they get binned

Sorry to sound like a little hitler but it`s a sore point on these forums as fans are just exchanging trades with no money involved - purely as decent people and when you find out someone is flogging this on ebay and making easy money it`s not very nice. Plus I know the band and management take a dim view of it.

Anyway I`ll stop waffling on!

yeah, i suppose i just thought, i myself would rather buy a cheap CDR for under a fiver than a "proper" bootleg of say a manchster apollo show with art work / "factory made" booklet for like £30 which is what they go for on there, coz its still the same music.

As for people downloading tracks from this fan site and selling them on EBAY, i totally agree with you. That's not on.

I agree with this - I get really angry when I see people profiting from the band's work via e-bay. It's about time e-bay cracked down on this type of trading!
