I operate under the belief that all forms of entertainment when practiced properly can have a profound effect on peoples lives, making them cry, sing along, laugh or simply feel joy and revitalize their lust for life.
It is common knowledge that the music business is a business and fuck all to do with the music,
So, the way I see it, this industry needs to be counteracted,
But, because of the sheer volume of money they control,
The infinite whores and sell outs available for them to exploit,
Creating a new industry to replace it must be done using the exact opposite play books.
We can't do big labels with overbearing producers who sap the creative control from the artists,
We can't rely on big radio stations that refuse to play certain music because of the anti-establishment lyrics, We shouldn't expect that the only way we're going to get any song recorded is if we pay megabucks to some studio.
It has to be cheap, it has to be genuine, it has to be creative, it needs to be about community and it has to have a real message focused on the concerns of the artists and their conscience.
