Where's The Money?

Dragula is available at Emusic! Where's all the royalty money we should be getting? We never signed a contract or anything. It's just another case of musicians getting took by the savage and mean recording industry - in this case it's that uber maniacal Lucha Libre mask wearing Eddie Angel who's the head honcho at Spinout Records that took advantage of Dragula's sweet nature. I hear he also stiffed his own band Los Straitjackets, wink wink nudge nudge. Hell, it's pretty nifty that folks can download a couple of songs that were written in Lumpy Deluxe aka Spacefink's garage and recorded at M.T.S.U. by Drew - it's just a shame that the boy got a F for it.

He should have gotten an F! The mix sucked ass & he took Hudson out! Lame. We could do a better job on a 4 track and one mic.

Given the fact that Hudson gave up the band for a psycho chick-and didn't even have the cajones to share that info with half the band. I say he deserves a retroactive A+++++

It's been 10 years and Dragula's still controversial! Drew did not get an F for the recordings - that was just just a joke. Now as for the mix....yeah it pretty much bit, but I don't think any of us knew at the time that the tracks would end up on the compilation. Even when we offered up the tracks we were unaware of what caliber of bands we would be paired against.
