I had been on the road for about one year, visiting a lot of beautiful places in different countries, in Europe, North and South America, and I haven't been living in the UK since March 2011. In August 2011 I relocated to Brazil and had my Paypal account blocked/limited...
Only now, that I am in love and properly settling in Sao Paulo (fit and working again, hehe), that I am preparing to resume the work with the label.
Of course, it will still be something DIY, unpretentious etc.
Today I had my Paypal account restored, so I'm able to receive payments again. I had been having problems with bandcamp, because people wanted to buy stuff from the label and Paypal wouldn't work, but now this is all resolved and you can buy anything you want from http://ob-w.bandcamp.com/! :-)
And soon there will be new stuff out, more good and sincere music for you, yeah!
Eu tinha estado na estrada por cerca de um ano, visitando um monte de lugares bonitos em diferentes países, na Europa, América do Norte e do Sul, e eu não venho mais morando no Reino Unido desde março de 2011. Em agosto de 2011 me mudei para o Brasil e tive a minha conta Paypal bloqueada/limitada...
Só agora, que estou apaixonado e devidamente me estabelecendo em São Paulo ("fit and working again", hehe), que eu estou me preparando para retomar o trabalho com o selo.
Claro, ele ainda será algo DIY, despretensioso etc.
Hoje eu tive a minha conta Paypal restaurada/liberada, ou seja, eu sou capaz de receber pagamentos de novo. Eu tinha tido problemas com bandcamp, porque as pessoas queriam comprar coisas do selo e Paypal não funcionava, mas agora isso tudo está resolvido e você pode comprar qualquer coisa que você quiser em http://ob-w.bandcamp.com/! :-)
E em breve haverá coisas novas, mais boa e sincera música para você, yeah!
