Ottawa punk band ‘Zex‘ discovered yesterday the most epic of mistakes! Their music was accidentally pressed onto one side of Beyonce’s collector vinyl release for ‘Lemonade’.
Bad news? Not so much; Zex is getting worldwide attention now and exposure beyond their wildest dreams. Moreover, Ottawa’s Zex has the goods, and now people are seeking out their music to buy.
Slate.com caught up with Zex guitarist Jo Galipeau and asked a question that reveals another side to this otherwise amusing story. The ‘error’ has the potential to be a major financial windfall.
Do you know if you’re going to be getting any financial recognition for your music being sold?
Galipeau: No, we can’t discuss this right now.
I believe the story of this ‘accident’ is just beginning, and it’s all good times ahead.
My crystal ball has churned out a few predictions:
- Jimmy Fallon will invite Zex to play ‘The Tonight Show‘.
- A vinyl copy of ‘Lemonade’ with the Zex tracs will become extremely collectable.
- Zex will be invited to play South By Southwest but may have to skip it for their world tour.
