Quote of the Day (9.11.14)

“The single best thing that has happened in my lifetime in music, after punk rock, is being able to share music, globally for free…[record labels are irrelevant]…[music is] an environment, or atmospheric element [rather than a commodity, in which democracy exists for bands and consumers] only bother with music they like…..

..bands have a worldwide audience with no corporate participation…the industry [is] a racket and [I have] no sympathy for its demise, as it never operated for the benefit of songwriters…

…the things that have happened because of the internet have been tremendously good for bands and audiences, but really bad for businesses that are not part of that network, the people who are siphoning money out. I don’t give a fuck about those people.”

— Steve Albini
