Kickstarter funds plagiarist

A post on BrooklynVegan notes an album by one Tom Smouse was almost entirely composed of songs he had plagiarized from the Iowa City band Burn Disco Burn

The post notes the album was funded by Kickstarter.

Beyond roping in a bunch of unwitting accomplices, how bizarre to be so public about it! Sending out promotional e-mails to City Pages and having the gall to run a Kickstarter campaign, all based on knowledgeably stealing another band's intellectual property. Very odd and shitty.
