Kiss The Stone

Kiss The Stone

Profile:
Kiss The Stone Records (KTS) is a popular bootleg recording company that has released many famous bootlegs by bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Nine Inch Nails. The company was based in Italy, where the law allowed the company to market bootlegs as long as it placed royalties for the artists in an escrow account. Most artists wouldn't bother collecting, either because they didn't want to legitimize the bootlegs or because tracking down escrow accounts in a foreign country was more trouble than it was worth.
Kiss The stone was run by the producer Giorgio Serra and "Gabs (2)".
The label also had offshoots - Big Music, Nikko Records for the Japanese market and a large design studio, Tecnograph, with in-house photographers and designers.

The label is now defunct.

Looks like they've finally blocked everything on this label...wondered what took them so long.

I had 2 of the Madonna sets and the sound quality was pretty good as far as concert bootlegs go...but the real strength of these releases was the packaging. The presentation and artwork inside was phenomenally good...nothing about it felt cheap.
