We want to tank people who read and write on indymedia for taking part in our initiative: from our first communication we had a lot of e-mail with compliments, opinions and a lot of very good ideas. We decided to answer to the questions using this space to continue in having an open dialogue with all the indy's people.
For those who don't remember what I'm writing of: Chaussette Verte is an Italian-French electric jazz band, we are fighting against showbusiness by giving away our music for nothing, and the copyright protection system by inviting anyone to duplicate our cd in several copies and sell them (not giving us a dime, of course) and/or give'em to friends, as they like.
We will demonstrate, this pro-active way, that musicians can live without the showbusiness mechanism, can "stand up against the corporations and do music THEIR way, for THEIR reasons" (thank you Meredith Slota).
An entire high scool class from Oregon (so there are young people those like jazz!!! What's happening, their mothers forgot to use some kind of chemical lobotomy?) sent us the lovely phrase "free music makes free people feel free", and asked us to send them the "Official Chaussette Verte Fans Club T-Shirt" ( if not too dear):
1. please don't be our fans (don't be anybody's fans: use your own mind!!!), be our friends, listen to our music, and ALWAYS evaluate before accept the things we offer
2. if you like, on one t-shirt you can write "Official Chaussette Verte Friends Club T-Shirt". That's it. (you can do the same on every kind of wear or underwear, or car, or motorbike
