Dear Mr The Member Of Radiohead Nobody Can Ever Remember,

In reference to: http://www.nme.com/news/radiohead/49390

Well done! Your band can go on tour and charge £50 for a ticket and £25 for a t-shirt and people will pay it. You’ve certainly bucked the downturn in the music industry quite successfully.

Most bands, however, are unable to get away with this, and i guarantee that if Radiohead appeared today with material of the quality of Pablo Honey you’d be one of them.

In conclusion: fuck off aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Love,
Daniel

(I appreciate that the quote was probably taken widely out of context and used to spin up a story to fill a quota, but that doesn’t change the fact that I’m just so gosh darn bored of musicians who got fat off The Old System telling us all that it’s dead and gone but that’s ok because you can make money flogging t-shirts as if that’s a be all and end all to the current situation the music industry finds itself in.)
