Against Me! has posted a track from their early Vivida Vis incarnation. The track was presumably cut from the 1998 Misanthrope Records release, and is titled “One Pound of Flesh.”
Tom Gabel discussed that era in the band’s history in a Racket Magazine interview, saying:
So, okay, when you started out as a band, when we started out as a band… NO ONE fucking liked us. (laughs) No one! Our first year of shows was just like us showing up, me and Kevin and unloading my acoustic guitar, and Kevin unloading his drums; which was like this weird home made kit, and people were like “What the fuck is this?” and making fun of us.
No one liked us at first, and now there’s all these people saying “I’ve loved you since (Vivida Vis).” “No, you didn’t. No one liked us when (Vivida Vis) was around. I was there at the shows! There were TEN people there, what are you talking about? I know you weren’t there.”

Radiohead‘s now-famous donation-suggested release of In Rainbows will not be repeated with the band’s next album. The group spoke to the BBC about it, saying:
The “honesty box” idea was a one-off response to a particular situation. It was one of those things where we were in the position of everyone asking us what we were going to do. I don’t think it would have the same significance now anyway, if we chose to give something away again.
The news may come as a disappointment to many who hoped that Radiohead’s example may usher in a new model of music distribution. Other artists like Nine Inch Nails have embraced and extended the idea with higher quality recordings and similar promotions. It remains to be seen if the method will become more popular, or would even prove useful to less well-known acts.
