  1. really? ‘work for free?’ sorry but (mainly) amateurs working for free is partly how musicians have gotten/found themselves in this current mess. i appreciate your sentiment but i would suggest a new wallpaper…

  2. Kessin, I couldnt disagree more with that statement. Pretty Lights works for “free”, and how much was Radioheads last?
    Work with such talent, ability and passion so that compensation becomes both irrelevant and guaranteed. It really is either people in it for the money or for the music; there will always be a lucrative market for the performance of quality music. I’ll torrent your music and if I love it will always be happy to pay heftily to see you live.

    1. *IF* you can play live. Which Radiohead has the capital and the momentum from the pre-mp3 days to do. Sorry, you’re the exception, not the norm.
