Shikari's "Halcyon (Intro)" song played on Anti-Cannabis BBC Documentary

Post by the prodigy rule on Fri 22 Jan 2010, 9:07 am

Was watching a documentary on cannabis on BBC, and while discussing where ever the drug can leave people with mental illness, Shikari's "Halcyon" came on in the background!

Rather ironic for an intro of another song which contains the lyrics:

To the multi story car park, with our friends
Drinking from a bottle, of white lightning
On top of marks and sparks, roof running
Smoking chronic, hectic.

Man pissed me off lol, Shikari wouldn't want the song used for this.... Sad

As I'm watching it right now, I'm no seeing this as an anti cannabis documentary.
Yeah, it's sceptical, but it's not going "THIS SHIT IS BAD.".

And the guy in the head shop made me laugh.

Maybe so, but for the normal viewer the things that are going to stick in thier minds is the kid who hanged himself over weed (probably the most extreame thing they could have found outside the gang and cartel violence lol), not the lads having a laugh in Amsterdam smoking G-13 Haze (fucking awesome weed probably the highlight strain when I went hahaha).

I don't know how it works in England but over here in the US typically if a song is going to be used on a show, or movie, or commercial they have to ask the band to license the song to them. And they (the musicians) usually get compensated for the use of that song.
If it works the same way in England, that would mean that ES were aware of the use of the song and approved it. Personally since it's an instrumental song I don't really see an issue, plus most people would never even associate the discrepancies between the use of that song and the song following it on the album.
