Music doesn`t need to repeat the sounds of yesterday in order to be enjoyed. We can do without the rigidity of so-called successful business whose current musical expressions are no longer relevant. And we owe it to you and ourselves to maintain this position.
So accordingly we thank every one of you, those who came to appreciate us as a small, non-industrial label. And, those who are in the position to discern and exercise restraint and modesty in a media world conducting itself in an ever more aggressive manner.
We exist because of you.
