Australian rock band Tame Impala might be facing a bit of legal trouble. Their frontman Kevin Parker took to Instagram today displaying an email he received from Samm Culley, a member of the ’60s-’70s funk band Skull Snaps, who accused Parker of sampling Snap’s most well-known song, “It’s A New Day.” Culley wrote:
“Our musicologist says it is indeed our sample. If we don’t hear from you in three days we will file the necessary papers in court.”
Parker responds on the post’s caption, saying:
“WOW unexpected compliment! The creator of the famous Skull Snaps drum sample thinks my drums IS his actual sample and wants to sue me for not clearing it! Haha! Sam Culley you have three days to fire your musicologist.”
