What happened to Porous Records?

Post by TidalVonPfaffli » Mon Apr 16, 2012 1:53 am

Well, it's not that Matt Fishbeck's label was incredibly active these days (who is still waiting for 'Bad Habitat' here?), but their website have simply disappeared... It used to be here : http://www.porousrecords.com

Do anyone know more about it? Will we ever be able to see a copy of 'Bad Habitat' or one of 'Album Primum' by Nunzio Fattini someday?

Not surprising. I ordered $100 worth of HS shirts and $40 worth of posters from Porous. This was like 4 months ago. No reply to emails, nothing. Pretty disappointed/upset about this.

Is there anything we can do about this?? Like....legally?

Also - Bucko, where in Dallas are you? Dallas is so incestual I wouldn't be surprised if we knew other obliquely...

i would never want to take any legal action. that is just childish...


but can't they just at least upload SOMETHING for the ones who not only pre-ordered but honestly love the music and just want to hear it above all else.

I was able to get my money back from Paypal for the most recent order because they never replied to the emails.
Has anyone even been responded to by email? It might be that that one's inactive now. Do we have another way to contact them?

Stealing money for drugs under a pretense of merchandise is pretty childish. Not even having the decency to reply to dozens of emails is pretty childish. Really, its a matter of 'last case scenario' when all others have been exhausted. I mean, I gave Fishbeck $140. Don't know about you guys but I'm a broke artist and that's A LOT of money for me. Furthermore he even told me he was heading to the post office to mail them in the last email I got from him, so I remembered excitedly running to my apt. mailbox every day for nearly a month and being disappointed.

The guy obviously doesn't give a shit. He's probably laughing. I mean, I'm facebook friends with him and I've tried sending him messages on there which are ignored too, all the while he's making witty posts here and there, keeping up his image. Fishbeck went from being one of my most respected people to, well , the opposite over all this mess. :cmere:

Adri - his personal email is and has been for sometime, mattfishbeck@gmail.com. However, I've tried getting in touch in every possible way, all to no avail....

Same situation here. Ordered over a year ago, sent emails, no response. The dude is obviously a bit of a damager. Talented, sure, which makes this all more of a shame. But I refuse to believe homey isn't where he'd like to be because of a devotion to failed geniuses. Behavior like this makes that apparent.
