The New Music Industry
I'm cross-posting this everywhere I think is relevant, so many apologies if you end up seeing it a few times!

1. Music downloading, high record prices and new technology in general has changed the music industry. Where do you see it headed?

1.a) If you are a musician, producer, engineer or otherwise involved in the making of music (or would like to be), how do you feel these changes affect you? Are you planning to change your role to keep up with technology?

2. What do you think the role of record producer will be in 10 years? 20?

3. What do you feel is the role of a record label right now? What do you think it will be in 10 years? 20?

4. Do you think the traditional album (as in, a collection of songs, packaged with cover art and liner notes, that you go to the music store and purchase) is facing extinction, or will there always be a market for it?

U.S. Vs John Lennon
Here's the trailer for the U.S. Vs John Lennon, it's a very good documentary. I rented it at Blockbuster, so I imagine that it can be found just about anywhere. If you have the patients the whole thing can be found on Youtube in about 30 parts. Take a look.

Did ya ever?
Has anyone ever noticed that in Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana the lyric "Hey, wait, I've got a new complaint" is sort of the opposite of the Ramones "hey, ho, let's go!"? Isn't that a mind blowing little tidbit of think stuff!?

Last night I went to see the Subhumans play with the Keg Killers and my old friend Dan Dan the Mustang man's band, Grey Army. Grey army put on a great show. Their drummer was amazing, Dan's screamy vocals were like a slice of chocolate cake. After them the Keg Killers were on featuring blind Mark on drums. I must say, he's pretty freaking awesome on drums for a blind guy. They did a couple Ramones covers'n stuff'n things. Great music to give a shimmy too.
After the Keg Killers the Sub Humans played. These guys have been around since the first wave of punk rock in the late 1970's. The lead singer spent some time in jail in the early 90's after bombing some US weapons testing facilities both here on Vancouver Island and in Ontario and is still quite politically active, perhaps not quite as extreme as he used to be. In my early teens they were definitely one of my favorite bands. They played all of the songs that I wanted to hear like Urban Gorillas, Firing Squad, Death to the Sickoids and a song I think is called Fuck You. I spilled beer all over myself and others as per usual, moshed a bunch, it was great. I look forward to their new album coming out this year.
