In front of my record wall. Brussels, 1985.With one thing and another the question of the free availability of information vs. the artist's right to his livelihood has been a puzzler since the advent of digital technology.Why purchase entertainment units from a giant greedy conglomerate for exorbitant prices when it can all be yours free on the galvanic difference engine telegraph?

Why indeed? Me, I have decided that   what goes round comes around. Cast your bread on the waters. Consider the lilies of the field. 
If it is the will of the good lord that I receive remuneration as an artist, so be it. If not not.
Here you go gang. Take....take....take.

my things in a shop.
