Well does anybody really ever say "shucks" if they're not being facetious?

Agreed. I'm an independent artist. I get no funding from any outside label or other source (I don't claim to sell millions but I sell a few). I saved my money and bought the equipment I needed, and invested my time. (I also have a full time job, if I can find the time they can find the time) I learned how to record, mix, master and distribute my own music.

It doesn't cost that much to record and release music these days. Granted, vinyls do cost more to produce and it is possible to put the money toward touring and marketing but Bands need to start being (or working with) better business people. Most regular businesses would have to go to a bank and be approved for a loan.

The incentives for these things are pointless too. They're just selling the music and merch in advance. Signatures are worthless. (I'll pay for Babe Ruth's autograph why would I want an unproven band's) If the album and band turn out to be good I'll buy the merch anyway.

Besides, he wasn't even a key Glassjaw member and so what if it's Thursday's drummer.

It's a free country though, people can spend their money however they want. Just my thoughts.
wasn't a key glassjaw member? have you ever listened to glassjaw? he's one of the most distinctive guitarists in aggressive music ever. If y'all don't like it don't back it, stop complaining.

You may be thinking of Justin Beck. And I'm only one person, not a group... ya'll.

I'll pay for the $1 download, but I'll buy music from an unknown band once I know it exists.

this shit is really starting to get out of hand. people arent even trying anymore. put the time in, work that extra shift, save your money, and do things yourself. if anything, its gotten easier over the last decade to record and self release, not more difficult.

Agreed. Kickstarter is the new MySpace band. Get out there and work.
