    Hey Brian, last week I discovered the existence of an interesting little label: Rusted Rail.
    They have just released the latest Songs of Green Pheasant’s album in a hand-assembled/hand-stamped card sleeve which I ordered directly form them – by the way, this is how I found out about the label…

    I thought that perhaps you might want to contact them…

    info (at) rustedrail.com
    or better to use: rustedrail (at) gmail.com

    for the record, only the covers were hand screened. the cd’s were replicated in some facility.

  2. Yeah, I guess I should change the description slightly. What was the type of machine you used to print them again?

    CJBoyd’s argument is a flawed. Nobody sneaks in to sniff his farts nor do they pitch in to buy him bean burritos.

    He isn’t entitled to money to create music, however neither is someone entitled to hear/listen/own/download any of the music he created which is more the issue I think than the fact that a musician feels like a public is obligated to give him money to do so. It’s more that the public feels like it’s their right to hear the music and not the artist’s right to expect some token of gratitude in return.

    I’m not willing to pay for a new Guns n Roses but then i don’t think i really should be able to have the songs for free either. Not really anything to do with a musician’s entitlement any moreso than Charmin expects something in return if i decide to wipe my arse with their product. The worth of music, the practice of commerce those are the topics at play not a musician’s self-worth or ego, those exist independently of the issue.

    • Yeah, there’s definitely a problem with people feeling entitled to free everything here in the first world. & at times it seems like not only do people feel like they should have free music, but should be paid to do the artist the favor of listening to it. Which is perhaps related to the fact that now that everyone is a musician the quality of music has lowered to the point where maybe we should get paid to listen to some of it.

  2. I think there’s a disconnect between consumers of music and makers of music.

    The consumer doesn’t consider all the mundane financial and logistical details of what it takes to get that music to their ears.

    Music costs money to make. Especially music recorded in studios with all the costs that entails.

    Your average listener would never have reason to think about tracking, travel, mixing or mastering costs. Nor should they. They just download and (hopefully) appreciate the result.

    For an artist, posting music as a youtube video or in any other myriad ways available now online costs basically nothing. It’s possible to make and distribute music more or less for free this way now.

    What we’re going to lose though, is music that cost any time and money to make.

    There won’t be a new Black Sabbath, Cure, Bowie, Joy Division, MBV, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Sonic Youth, Velvets, etc.

    These are all musics that cannot be made, much less performed, by some dude sitting alone at a computer.

    Whether or not that’s a good or bad thing is up to you I guess.

    Anyway, this guy has some good points:


  3. That Collateral Damage series in The Wire is really good. One of the thing that has always been funny to me about The Wire is probably 95% of the musicians they cover don’t sell as many units as the magazine does. Maybe that’s true of Rolling Stone too when I think about it.

Goddakk, Plumerai, Star, Planet of the Apes, Silbeer, Tip Jars

Okay, so in the next day or so there will be new releases available for download from Goddakk & Plumerai.  Just waiting for final approval of a couple things before updating everything on the website.

Working on Music

Worked a bit on some keyboard parts for The Pointless Forest.  Looks like I’m going to be going with the SK-1 through the Nanoverb as it sounds good & is fairly compact.

On the Poit comic I ended up writing …

QRD, The Wet Teens, Google, A Fire is actually Burning (help a Silber artist)

Most of the time the past two days I’ve spent doing proofing for the next QRD.  Always goes slower than I expect.  I think part of it is the change in format from four 5-page interviews to twenty 8-page …
