Speaking of extremist reductive articles on sampling, was there any
discussion on Rumori of the recent East Bay Monthly article 'Free Sampling'
by Mark K. Anderson?

Not that it was BAD, it's good to have this much attention on the issue so
squarely sympathetic to the artist's side of the current legal situation.
And this issue is new to many people, demanding reiteration, summarization,
etc., but watching the way in which the central points pop up in
increasingly stripped-down form with each successive article does warrant
some conversation of some kind.

Overall quite happy about the article, mind you. Wonderful interviews with
Tape-beatles, Don Joyce, Steev Hise... whoever the photographer was made
you guys look great, actually. Maybe someone could scan the article in or
maybe Steev could contact Mark and get an electronic copy for the list?

Good publicity in any case but mainly interesting to me in the elements
common to other press coverage, as this becomes an issue or a Cause, it's
important to keep track of how the argument is being presented back to us
after the 90 minute cassette-recorded phone interview is over.
