Society gets the music it deserves

This has got to be one of the most brutally honest articles I have read about the state of british music in a while. It’s great to see a mainstream journalist having the balls to write something so cutting and derogatory about major labels and their ‘Poster boys’, and it has vocallised my feelings entirely. The REAL music scene in london (well certainly everywhere but Hammersmith) is populated with honest hardworking artists making some great FREE music, and it defies mainstream standardisation.

Maybe if society changed the way it listened to/treated music and new artists, the industry would adapt, and we wouldnt have to put up with lavish awards ceremonies populated by the same old bland, boring, and frankly conservative tripe being passed off as ‘cutting edge’.
