so, about the bad taste site...

as some of you may have noticed, the bad taste site is down. in fact, it's now been down for an entire month, which is an eternity online. the whole hosting service went down around this time in january, and the guy who runs it out of his basement apparently hasn't had time to do a full restore from backup. for the first week or so after the network went down, it returned dead space, and now every site on the network returns a page about some juggler who calls himself chabuku. of all the content that could be served up... it would be funny if it were happening to someone else.

of course, the bad taste site hosts all three animals within animals albums, as well as the latest few stAllio! albums and a bunch of other audio. thus my magnus opus, a huge smash, has been by-and-large inaccessible for an entire month.

there's no point in offering your music for free if nobody can hear it, so i've temporarily posted a huge smash here on my site. it's free to download, and some have called it my best work, so if you never got a chance to check it out before, you're in luck.

i still believe (perhaps naively) that the bad taste site will eventually return. but i have no idea when that might happen. if it still hasn't been resurrected in a week or two, i'll probably start posting other albums to keep them in circulation. for now, know that the label is not dead, and we are aware of the site being down, but there's not much we can do other than wait it out or switch to a different host, which we hope to avoid.
