Intro quote[edit]

I just removed this quote:

Their style has frequently been described as "what Amon Tobin would have written if he had been born with Down's Syndrome". [1]

...as I went to the linked article and did not find the quote.76.121.3.146 (talk) 10:47, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

I removed it again. It isn't in the referenced articles and is a sad reflection on the person who made the change - anyone who thinks that using a condition like Down's Syndrome as an insult is appropriate should be ashamed. Agentwhim (talk) 11:25, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

comment with no heading[edit]

I will look into writing a more comprehensive article. These guys are very talented, and the more info about them that we can share with the public, the better. --Kibblesnbits 00:02, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

Most of this article is a copyright violation. The text has been taken from the website: http://www.eslmusic.com/artists/thievery-bio.html. If anyone out there wants to rewrite this article, let me know. If I don't hear from anyone within a couple days, I'm going to list it under Copyright problems.

But it's better if someone rewrites it first because Thievery Corporation is awesome. NymphadoraTonks 29 June 2005 03:39 (UTC)

  • Y'know what, I just reverted it. So... that's that. --NymphadoraTonks 30 June 2005 23:51 (UTC)
I think someone needs to write an article on ESL, the record label which hosts theivery corporation - along with all the rest of the wonderful artists on their label. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 72.226.105.244 (talkcontribs) 00:03, February 12, 2006 (UTC)
And it all happened again - so I'll remove it again this time, since it reads like a bloody advert Xmoogle 17:40, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Re: copyright problems: Please don't fret, very little has been taken from their overall website: some content and a photogaph. All in all its what the law considers "fair use" and especially on a website like Wikipedia which provides educational material. --Misha

Anyone else notice how uncannily David Byrne (Talking Heads) the singing seems on "The Heart's a Lonely Hunter"? Even the backing sounds a little bit Talking Heads...

Hehehe never mind, that's because it's David Byrne singing that song I found out... Xmoogle 13:23, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Featuring artists[edit]

Should Emilie Simon be mentioned? I don't know if she has actually sung with Thievery Corporation but her single "Desert" is remixed in the album "Versions". --Ireon 15:23, 11 January 2007 (UTC)


Hey, does anybody know for sure if its ASTRUD Gilberto (Joao's ex-wife) or BEBEL Gilberto (Joao's Daughter, also a recording artist, but not actually related to Astrud) that Theivery has collaborated with? I don't have liners to check by but I swear its bebel on So Com Voce off "Mirror Conspiracy"… if anybody knows for sure before I find it somewhere…

Xodiaq 02:48, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

That is Bebel in "So Com Voce", but I still can't find Astrud documentation, so Im adding Bebel, but not deleting Astrud… They remixed a song on a Verve complation, so there is at least an association. Xodiaq 19:47, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Article image[edit]

I've received notification that the main image on this article is likely to be removed under the {{Replaceable fair use}} rationale, which states that "it illustrates a subject for which a free image could reasonably be found or created".

If anyone has (or can source) a suitable free image of Thievery Corporation, that could replace the one currently used, please upload it and replace the existing image. Alternatively, if anyone wishes to contest the decision to remove this picture, please edit the image page, add the {{Replaceable fair use disputed}} template and provide justification on that page as to why it should be retained as a fair use image.

Fair use rationale for File:Sounds from the Thievery HiFi.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

File:Sounds from the Thievery HiFi.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 08:39, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

The photo was taken from the Amazon.com Web site, and those images are free to use. I don't think Thievery Corporation will mind its use.

Weasel words[edit]

I'm recommending changing a lot of the phrasing. Stuff like "they had already begun to define a new genre of electronic music and connect with an international community of like-minded souls...they have been at the top of their game ever since" sounds completely like an ad. Cwilli201 (talk) 21:14, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

I re-wrote the History portion of the page so it doesn't sound as bias. I think it sounds like a neutral and objective perspective.

SamuraiFez (talk) 06:29, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Alright, I went ahead and removed just about every bias word from this article. I'm taking off the weasel words tag; if there are problems with this please let it be known! SamuraiFez (talk) 06:55, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
