Departing Flights

28 10 2009

As time has progressed, this blog, which shares its name with many a thing, has been good to us. The Fabakis banner covers a recording studio, production house, occasionally a sandwich shop and now we’ve filed to become a full-fledged independent record label. Below you’ll find a link that will lead you to the Fabakis Records website, where you can keep up with new happenings and artist signings. We’re currently accepting demo submissions and look forward to showering the blogosphere with our own brand of truly indie music.

Now. Watch some Quaxis videos!

-Add The Foo Fighters to the long list of musicians who have had their music lifted by the Mccain camp. 

“It’s frustrating and infuriating that someone who claims to speak for the American people would repeatedly show such little respect for creativity and intellectual property. The saddest thing about this is that ‘My Hero’ was written as a celebration of the common man and his extraordinary potential,” the Foo Fighters said in a statement. “To have it appropriated without our knowledge and used in a manner that perverts the original sentiment of the lyric just tarnishes the song. We hope that the McCain campaign will do the right thing and stop using our song — and start asking artists’ permission in general!” 

The list includes The Foo Fighters, John Mellencamp, Jackson Browne, Heart, Boston and Eddie Van Halen.
