Howdy Josh, if you're reading this. I really didn't want to believe it was true but after reading through the comments on here and online and finding a lot of "your" music on royalty free sites (http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?collection=003)... well, the nicest thing I can say is you owe me £10 dude. So very sad. I thought you were so talented. Maybe we could turn this page into a source for matching BCB's tracks to their real artists and then ask Last FM to delete it.
It's sad how I don't know to whom to attribute the wonderful emotion I feel when I listen to these compositions. Any enjoyment I get is kind of hollow. It would be great if the last.fm community could together identify the original composers, but that's an exceptionally difficult task. I'm not sure if the Bark Cat Bark story is a tragedy...or just a farce.
I spoke to someone who uploaded one of his pictures She said she was just a friend of him and that Josh Todd was just a good friend with no real music abilities. This music was made by musicians without a record company and put their music on the internet for free. Josh downloaded the songs and renamed them. I wish I could know who made the real songs! At least we can say one thing Josh Todd has some taste for music and that's all !
Does anyone know where to find Bark Cat Bark's discography? I can't seem to find a main webpage and the links I've found to his work are almost all missing tracks or contain corrupted files (including the ones in the artist bio above). I did come across a bandcamp for Sonic Reverie records but they only had Mathilde available. Anyone know where I can get more?
the whole "thief" thing was complete fallacy, some pirated an account, put his name on a song that wasn't his, he got blamed big mix up!... getting to my point.. if anyone knows him or knows where he is at the moment please let me, its hugely important. thanks - you can get me on email@example.com
I can't quite trust these accusing little internet stories (talking about Knox Road...) but hey, you may be right. I liked the album Mathilde but I don't really care for him, and I'm not gonna blindly defend him either.
Of course he's not completely original. La Fontaine Molière for all I care is like a variation on Yann Tiersen's L'horloge. but I like his musical taste. his choice of style, instruments, etc. and the fact that he's (or was) trying to make something (and released them for FREE, mind you), unlike some of the bums who think they can sit back in front of their monitors and comment BS on his works.
I'm not jealous, be assured, and I will be one of the first to admit that he has got loads talent, but this is not just a cover, it is literaly exactly the same. I'm sure many if not almost all of his songs are composed by himself, but this really just ruins his integrity. Seriously, check it out. http://dedicatedrecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-final-letters-2 Listen to track 20. Then, go here: http://incompetech.com/m/c/royalty-free/index.html?keywords=Musette It's exactly the same. The facts don't lie, man. It's only one I've got proof of, but it does harm his integrity a bit, doesn't it?
I'd like to say that the song "Movement XI: Aufwiedersehen Verona Now On Forwards To Piazza Di Spagna "Billy, My Son, Billy, My Sonny, Soooooooonny!"" is 100% identical to Kevin MacLeods "Duet Musette", which was made three years ago. In other words, Josh Todd is, as stretts already said, a thieving scumbag. I used to think you were awesome, Josh, but now I don't. Nice job.
