    Default A very interesting message from the Owner of Nemesis Records

    I follow @bigfrank323 on instagram. He is a tattoo artist who posts a lot of his amazing work, he is also the creator of the Nemesis Record Label which as you know released the Self Titled Offspring vinyl. I was asking a few questions about the 3000 copies he released and how many were released with the cargo logo, as I have heard different figures on this subject. his response was different from what I expected to say the least. here is what he said:

    I will tell you a story about cargo. When I started out it was just nemesis then my Friend Kane who was my distributor got us a distribution deal with cargo and that was prettying the beginning of the end. First they insisted on this big cargo logo on all releases and then when I had finally had enough and folded my label. They tried to go after all the bands on my label and re release everything on cargo with no nemesis credit. So really in my opinion any release that says cargo but not nemesis is a bootleg and was an attempt to usurp the label I worked very hard on and they can burn in eternity for all I care.

    If I were you, I would see about doing a follow up interview on this. Seems you might have a neat scoop on your hands, and someone somewhere will be interested.

    Default Thank you for the compliments :)

    He is already doing an interview for the documentary. I just wanted to let that story be known. its a fine balance of keeping some original content for the documentary and releasing some to keep interest in the project.

    At least he got the last laugh; the Nemesis-only copies are far more valuable.
