Industry Curmudgeon Throws Hellfire at “Marketers”


This blistering invective came by way of Bad Stuart to the staff email list. It seems that this fellow’s rants are probably not news to a lot of folks, but I’m not very industry, so they’re news to me. Month after month of music-biz-insider-piss-kicking— I don’t know who these dudes are, but love it! (Although his obsession with Nickelback is at least a little bit frightening.)

P.S. He’s right— the kids do love classic rock! (See Zeppelin. and Sabbath.) And while we’re bringing rock to the people, I’d negligent not to mention mother-effing TAD and SLEEP!

P.P.S. He called us Long Tail! (scroll down until you get to "The Shins ": at #8…) I can’t tell whether or not that’s supposed to be a diss, but it’s oh-so rad.

I’m going to try to upgrade my piss and vinegar quotient by only reading Lefstez and Stevey’s Drunken Rants for the next month or so. Wish me luck…
