After getting to number 1 in the Brighton area for the fourth time I have noticed that my national Reverb Nation chart rank for alternative artists is Number 7! I am now being offered promotion by EMR Recording and Management and Reverb Nation tell me my track 'Rebel With A Cause' has serious industry potential. I have recently had tracks aired by on the radio by Mark Whitby of Dandelion Radio (amongst others) and all is well in the land of Jackn Bones!
After having one of our tunes played on BBC radio Sussex I decided to continue collaborating with 'Arry Dirt on a new tune called 'Feel The Music', the story goes, basically, Harry rings me and says '...I want a sell out tune!?' so I say '...You wanna sell out tune mate, i'll give you a sell out tune!' and 'Feel The Music' was born. Don't get me wrong, I love some pop music (prodigy in mind), but I get sick of all that corny dance stuff, you know! So I knocked up this drum loop made fromsingle hit drum samples from Fools Gold by the Stone Roses and it worked, I added this guitar riff i've been playing with and it sounded great so I ring Harry again... 'You're gonna love this new tune i'm working on mate......'
COPY OF LETTER TO INDABA MUSIC COMPLAINTS DEPT Dear Mr Tempkin
It has come to my attention that the artist known as Upanishad Project, has been infringing upon copyright laws by sampling large loops and sections from other peoples work without express permission from the copyright claimant, the artist known as Jackn Bones was illegally penalized and disallowed from using his Indaba profile for complaining about Upanishad projects illegal, copyright infringing, unoriginal looped sample in a spoof version of the song known as ‘song 8’. Not only was the song in question a whole entire ‘rip’ from an old well known reggae classic but the artist known as Upanishad project have then taken it upon themselves to ‘murder’ this old classic with the most awful wannabe Indian guru singing you have ever heard.[less]
As a result of uploading the spoof version of song 8, the artist known as Jackn Bones was immediately called into the indaba chat room by one of indaba's content managers, where he was then subjected to ridiculous accusations regarding the content of the spoof version of song 8 containing alleged racist slander and it should be known that this accusation is entirely false and that the reality of the content of this material is precisely contrary to the accusation of racist slander in every way, the content of the spoof version of song 8 is actually in DEFENCE of the original afro-carribean reggae artists to whom the copyright originally belongs and it should be known that the original artist would no doubt be extremely offended by this terrible aberration of their original reggae material.[less]
The word 'sting' is a commonly used english word and is therefore as good as public domain and can be said legally by anyone, any misgivings or complaints about the context of the usage of the word 'sting' are open to interpretation and in this particular instance, the words usage is nothing more than psychadelic, as is often the case with creative material of a comical, musical and poetic nature. Perhaps the Indaba music content manger in question should've thought twice before he illegally revoked access to my profile, used threatening language towards me and accused me of slanderous remarks, failing miserably to disguise his envy towards my superior musical talents as a legitimate claim of misconduct. Indaba music are now fairly warned that I shall be pursueing legal action against them with my totally seamless case. It should also be known that the artist known as Jackn Bones has retained all of the intellectual property pertaining to his musical creations uploaded to indaba, in the form of timed and dated WAV files, signed and dated Stave scores, signed and dated written notes, revised instrumental performances, signed and dated lyrics sheets and so on, all of the intellectual property mentioned has been carefully interwoven so as to match up in terms of dates signatures, handwriting and the ability to actually play ALL of the songs in question properly, all of the intellectual property mentioned is thoroughly testable by accepted scientific methods such as the polygraph test, vocal waveform analysis and so on.
Yours most sincerely
Ben Jackson (a.k.a. Jackn Bones)
