Antony Hegarty of Antony & The Johnsons Wants You to Download MP3s from Any Given Tuesday
. . .actually, he just wants you to quit downloading illegally, but that being the case, we do only offer legal MP3s here.
Antony Hegarty of Antony & The Johnsons (a collaborator with Bjork on her new album, Volta) has come out against fans downloading his music illegally, saying "This year I was hoping to develop ideas for the new album and some live concerts, but at this rate I am feeling discouraged because of the bootlegging. So do me a favor...be my fan and my friend and don't record my shows."
According to NME.com, Antony posted this plea on Just One Star, a Hegarty fan site, and through the above quote explained that pirating would ultimately impact his completing a follow-up to 2005's I am a Bird Now.
