1. i got the mail, it included a download link to a socalled Torrent File. To being able to use it you need to install additional software, like Bittorrent. This is because, alfa matrix are not willing to pay the bandwitdh caused by us when downloading the file.

2. the tracks inside the "First Moments" Package were not namely mentioned, for a good reason. The "new" tracks are: "U-Men" and "Im Rhythmus bleiben", both live versions.

3. I┤d say, congratulations to everyone who hastily double-opt confirmed his valuable e-mail adress and pseudo-generated statistics of interest for how far the label can go with the fans of the band.

4. Please make clear, if you are fully satisfied with this strategy. PLEASE SPEAK OUT!

5. I personally find it is *really* a shame. Maybe not to blame on Front 242, but it is a very poor idea of AM. Back in the days of Art&Strategy, i guess this would have been impossible.

kisses,
Jgv

Hi,

thanks for your remarks. Some clarification is needed because it seems you have some wrong info.

1) we use torrents because it is impossible to have this type of heavy files (the biggest file was 70 MB and was downloaded a few thousand times) served from our servers at a reasonable download speed without assuring the servers not to crash because we had no idea what we could expect. We were right because within 30 minutes over 700 people were downloading the files at the same moment. So it is not about not wanting to pay, it is about being sure we can keep the tracks up for everyone. And we are pleasantly surprised that the fans have been so active in seeding these free files the way they did.

2) First moment is pat of a bigger whole... also, it was never said these were 'new' tracks (except by some press people who clearly did not read well the message we sent them) even though these live versions have never been released in this format and in such clear quality before so as such they are pretty rare.

The action was a statement about sound quality and should be seen as such. Something the band succeeded in showing clearly.

3) the mailinglist will SOLELY be used for Front 242, nothing else.

4) feel free doing so, in fact we urge you to let us know your ideas, suggestions etc to take them into account for future actions. BUT, please only judge after you have seen the whole ... :)

5) Everyone at AM and Front 242 thought people would be glad with some free gifts. It appears some are not.

It is always easy to change interpretations afterwards. I just said how it looked like. And if you look at the actions of other well known artists.... So in this case, the stain clearly stays.
