"They say the Internet has liberated musicians"

«I don't know for sure, but increasingly I have the feeling that it would be much more necessary now to have things in place to be able to pay the rent -- to have industry things in place -- which is the opposite of what people say the Internet has done. They say the Internet has liberated musicians from the industry, that there's lots of ways of releasing things. It's not really true, because if you're not getting any money from recordings then you have to find ways of getting them from publishing or advances from record labels who want to be involved in the promotion of bands, the promotion of shows themselves. Labels don't expect to make a lot of money from selling recordings. You take away that value, big parts of what a band relies on to live, that's something that I feel like has to do with the internet. I don't know for certain, but I feel like that's the main change in the last 10 years.»
