Hello Mike, As fan of all your work that I've heard (isn't much, unfortunately), I've today come accross a situation which brought upon both joy and sadness... you see about three months back I wrote a song for my band and we have pretty much just comepleted it and we're all really proud of it. However today I heard the Mnutemen's song 'Badges' and I flipped. Good song I thought but it seemed quite similar. Yes, turned out I 'copied' the bassline from it without ever hearing it. Joy and sorrow, all in one. Without 'my' bassline our song is zilch. I'm happy that I wrote something good but you know... So heres my question: within a month we're entering a studio to record our first full lenght album. Not a commercial release, we're a small band from moscow, Russia. But being what I believe an honest musician I now need either a blessing or a telling off.
