Steve Ignorant statement on proposed Crass bootleg series

Cold Spring Records Facebook post on 17th August 2015: We're very proud to announce CRASS have joined COLD SPRING for series of live albums on vinyl and CD - all titles will be also available to download for free. Titles will be announced shortly.

I’d just like to say that I am not, have never been and as far as I’m concerned, never will be affiliated with Cold Spring Records. I have not endorsed the releases and Crass certainly hasn’t. The statement Cold Spring put out on facebook was totally misleading and mis-represented both myself and Crass.
I don’t object to bootlegs, they’ve always been a part of the world I move in, usually produced out of necessity as the official release may be too expensive to import etc., but I do object to being made to look as though I’m officially endorsing something - which then stops it being a bootleg! So now because of all this nonsense if I say I don’t want it released I’m being a selfish bastard, and if I say ok release it then I’m agreeing with all this nonsense. Damned if I do and damned if I don’t.
If Cold Spring Records have a conscience they’ll know the right thing to do.
