Message from Billy Carri (Cherry Bang) “I still see people are paying good money for the first Cherry Bang CD. They’re NOT getting the full artwork. It’s a duped copy. So instead of people wasting money getting shit that #1 I’m not getting paid for and #2 isn’t what we put out, I’m going to scan the REAL art work for the CD and if anyone wants it they can email me and I’ll send it to them or I’ll host it on my site or something. Also if anyone wants the CD’s in MP3 format tell everyone to PLEASE email me or ask a friend before spending their hard earned money. I’ve never seen a DIME from either CD and I KNOW they’ve sold. So I’d rather people get my music for FREE than line someone else’s pockets. I own the rights… it’s my party and I can give it away if I want to
