music should be free!!!

Post by nathannn » Tue Nov 18, 2008 4:16 am

unless its on vinyl.
vinyl is the only format worth paying for.
and every vinyl should come with a cd.. not a stupid fucking mp3 download.. i can download mp3 from the pirate bay.
also musicians should stop telling people to buy there fucking cd.. no one wants it.. i will go see your show buy your vinyl but not you shity cd.. and there is no way im paying for your crapy mp3...
i will buy your vinyl but only after i have tested the musical quality via shity mp3.
if i do find your music good enough to buy on vinyl i will go see your show. i probably wont be buying your t shirt unless, it looks stylish and not littered with your band name in huge letters and some splashy art work.

this should be law.

it works great..
instead of selling a cd that is of sub par quality at a show , they give it away.
people pass that cd on, they upload it to share with friends. and then more people go see there shows.
then the band can produce something tangible (maybe a cd with great cover art and a cool jewl case or vinyl) people will buy that and feel they now have some thing tangable.
when buying a cd of crap production or low quality musicianship you feel ripped off if especially if you are doing it to support your local shity band. you get nothing but a sub par shit cd that you throw around.
if the band gives there sub par shit out for free, takes the money they make from shows and then produces something tangible people will buy.

yeah ok..
the last show i played the rest of the band members tried selling a cd with a cover that was printed from a basic printer and recorded into an mbox..
give that shit away..
no one should pay money for it. who cares if the band loses money at first.
you lose money when you buy your first guitar. are you going to bitch because no one is paying you to learn the guitar?
and if your music is sub par or some one dont like it so what.. at least they wont feel ripped off buying a cd or an mp3 that should be free in the first place.

I don't sell my music, and I have no doubt that my life is a much happier and non financially richer place because of it, but that is just me and I'm messed up.

This has got to be one of the lamest topics I've ever read.

I wrote a bunch of stuff here, but it's lost on someone as close-minded as the op, so I'm not going to waste the time or text on it, but one thing's for sure, I'd never buy a cd, record, t-shirt, or mp3 from him, strictly out of disrespect for the principles stated in the first post, and I wouldn't even steal one of your mp3's to pass on to friends either.

I'm happy to buy cd's from bands that I like, and granted, none of them are locals, but I support the artists that I love.

If you've got something against local bands, op, then don't go to their shows.
Or be in their bands.
In fact, you should get shitfaced and heckle them early on so that the bouncers toss you out immediately, making the live musical experience that much better for everyone else who wants to be there.
