ARIEL PINK: They had initially contacted me because they wanted to start the vinyl portion of their label. At the time, they were still Kemado. It was the initial, inaugural release.
[Agreeing to do a release through the label] was sort of a weird situation. It was sort of a misunderstanding between my manager and me and the lawyer that we had at the time. It was brokered .. . with our consent, but just sort of like . . . the goal at the time was to get us signed to a label, and we didn’t see that as really a label. There was too much resting on our heads. We didn’t know whether they would be successful or not.
