i have a question for those in the know. if you buy your product :)
directly from the band/label and not from a store, does that mean the
distributors ie/ mca, denon do not get any money from that transaction?
ie/ instead of buying a cd on murderecords from hmv, sam's, or any other
store that goes through mca, you send your cheque for fifteen bucks to
the post office box in halifax. does all of your money go to murder?
also, `corporate financed' and `corporate sellout' are not the same thing
but anyway, i think in the case of sandbox, "corporate financed" and
"bandwagon leapers" can be accurate labels. they didn't really have much
to `sell out' on, so...that point is kind of moot.
that's about it. except that if you *really* want to stick it to the man,
order from the truly independent and free (and broke) record labels. you
know, labels like (in canada) popkid, endearing, sloth, and hey, daydream
answers to no one but our crabby selves. :)
always the altruist,
post script: and a happy birthday to carol!
