Some Bizarre does NOT pay royalties to Einstuerzende Neubauten. If you buy this album absolutely none of your money goes to the band. You may as well just download it - it's stealing from the artists either way.
Any EN album or DVD with "Some Bizarre" or "Cherry Red" or "Thirsty Ear" on it is a release that is not authorized by the band.
Some Bizarre are reissuing EN's albums because band authorized reissues, remastered and in digipaks, have been available for several years. Some Bizarre's old editions looked shabby next to the official ones, and they are now trying to catch up and fool you into buying their editions instead. They have even tried to sue EN out of the rights to publish their own music, but were not successful. Rightfully so!
If you get any enjoyment at all out of EN's music, please make the effort to buy albums that will benefit the band. Who should get your money - the people that actually made the music, or a record company who cheated them?
If you can see "Freibank", "Potomak", "Indigo", or "Mute" on an EN release, then this is authorized by the band.
Five stars for the album, 0 stars for this edition.
