    Awesome. Thank you very much for such a great treat. I really think that Plaster is way better than the final song. I like the samples, especially the ones in the beginning of the demo.

    Thank you to all of those who worked as a cohesive unit and managed to get this rare find uploaded. In my opinion, Plaster defeats One Step Closer by a wide margin. I'll be listening to this song quite a bit today. I listened to it around 12:02AM (GMT) last night, a couple of minutes after it was officially uploaded. This was well worth the wait.

    Thank you once again, I really appreciate this.

    They need to just stop mastering their albums and release it how they are out of studio.

    I'm convinced whoever they get to master their albums suck.

    yeah! we all read the Kerrang! magazine pics.
    The whole story was that Jeff Blue became the Vice-President and A&R guy for Warner Bros. Records. The first thing he did then was to sign LP. And then he left and in came David Kahne. He really hated LP. He was the one who suggested to Chaz that Mike should either leave the band or become the keyboard player. But chaz denied saying that it was Mike's band and he would not alter the line-up no matter what.


    that's what the whole story was.

    I love the song with the louder bass in it but the beginning sounds like a lame fan remix.
    Thanks LPA \o

    I read the article. I was just pointing out that this was the dude. But, if you read closer, it doesn't necessarily say that Kahne was the guy that suggested Mike leave the band. Although, it seems that he might have been of that opinion. It also doesn't say that Kahne replaced Jeff Blue as VP of A&R. It says he was the head of A&R, so was likely Blue's boss.

    Just thought I should clear that up. We don't want to make any unfair assumptions.

    Great work LPA, LP Fuse, LPP, and LPlive.net.

    The first time I listening to it felt weird but now I really appreciate it.
    The way the bass and drums are mixed really ads something that the HT song doesn't have.

    I'm fairly certain it's the camera shutter sample, just edited a lot. It happens about the same interval as it does in the demo, so that makes perfect sense.

    I definitely like the more prominent bass sound in this mix. I always thought it was weird that such a highly hip-hop influenced band like LP was keeping the bass all muddled up in the mix.

    Great find guys. Thanks. :)

    yeah.
    now i've read the story carefully. It says the Jeff Blue, earlier A&R for Zomba Music, was hired by Warner Bros. for A&R department. The then A&R head was David Kahne. David hated LP. Jeff Blue's first signing to Warner Bros. was LP.
    Here's what Chester said, and I quote:

    "The then head of A&R there (Warner), David Kahne, hated us. I don't mean that lightly. He literally f**king hated us!"

    Kerrang! says (as told by the band):

    "'
    The first problem was the name Hybrid Theory. Another recent signing to Warners, a band called Hybrid, were considered the next big thing, forcing Hybrid Theory to change their name to Linkin Park. The next problem was their music. As they started pre-production work with Don Gilmore, the producer told them he didn't like any of their songs.​

    "'


    Mike further says, "There was a lot of drama".
    And Chester: "[Someone from the label] came into to the studio. They'd say, 'Chester, you know you're the star, you're amazing, this should be your band. We need to get rid of Mike or just make him a keyboard player."

    And then Chester refused saying that he was just into the band and said that it was his [Mike's] band. And then the label wanted to bring in another rapper by the name Matt Lyons. And after that, the label told Mike to try and rap like Fred Durst.

    Then Mike says that they cut off all communications with the label unless absolutely necessary. They stood their grounnds and told the label that they were going to do all of this on their own, their way. They said that if they did not like it, they [the label] could drop them [LP]. Mike said that they were ready to take that risk.




    that's what the whole story is!!!
