do not artists steal from each other all the time, kosmo?  sometimes i question what is real art, and what is before such art.

it's theft walkie... right down to the different colored iris's on her dancers costumes.  all the band wants at this point is an acknowledgement it's their's or just to be asked for permission, but none of that has happened.  it will get ugly if she starts selling her own merchandise with one rock's few iconic looks/imagery on it...

I chalked that Ke$ha/Residents thing up to being nothing more than a tribute at first but refusing to acknowledge them obviously changes that.

Great NYT piece on this Jay-z/Samsung album download deal.

P.S. Jay-Z should have called it quits after The Black Album.

Dave Allen on music distribution

I think he is totally dead on here. Probably in the minority though.

I don't know what point he is trying to express.  I don't think the guy who played bass on Gang of Four albums and was in Shriekback should expect to be making money off the music industry today.  I talked to bands back in the 80's that had decent selling albums and they said they never made a dime off their album sales.  They were advanced money to make the album and their share of the album sales went to paying off those fees.  I think super star artists were making money back then and superstar artists are making money now. 

Plus now artists are able to put out stuff as long as they want.  Like everyone can do what Amanda Palmer did and cut out the record company and can actually make some money.

He states that record industry is only half of what it was at its peak.  But who is to say it have been at that level. Check out the album sales in the 60's and I doubt they were anywhere near the peak.

Ke$ha rips off the Residents long standing stage look on her new tour and then her people won't even discuss the matter with someone representing the band.  Boo Hiss

Why would she copy that look? It is a horrible one.  .

My peeve is with labels that physically release something only on vinyl (because sound, man) and digitally only in MP3 or iTunes (because BULLSHIT, man).

I was apparently DJing in the douchiest club in Chicago last night... at first I though it was spam, but no bot could create such douchbag profiles.
