I'm not visionary enough to even comprehend this. Better consult that legendary visionary, Billy Joel.

"Dubstep is still rock & roll."
- Billy Joel

I stand corrected.

It's pretty disingenuous to paint this as art vs. commerce when it's really about you just not liking current music and where the internet is going. And, to paint my disagreement with your position as a tacit endorsement of what you see as the opposite position is pretty amateurish as far as arguing...

If this happens, it will probably start among a small community of artists who are doing something that doesn't exist now. It won't be rock, but rock may be one of its influences. It won't be individuals or bands... it will take a community, and a new form of music. An individual or a band here and...

Yeah, man... I'm such a corporate whore for putting my money where my mouth is and providing an outlet for artists to get their music into the hands of their fans. All this time, I could have done much better for humanity by making Nostradamus speculations on an internet message board, about what "a...

i like it when you two fight. really! i guess i don't understand how keeping your art offline makes you subversive. all my art is currently sitting on a hard drive that's not connected to the internet. no one's heard it but me. is this subversive or just lazy? if i pressed up a bunch of vinyl copie...

Everyone is a sucker, making music for the man, serving corporate masters on little internet devices. Put down your iDevice and line up for ubertar to validate your art!

There's nothing rebellious about playing in a rock band and releasing songs (not that rebellion needs to be the goal, but that's the image that's sold). It's sold (mainly) to young people who don't know any better and mistake a rebellious pose for actual subversion. It serves to channel youthful re...

Hey, Chris. If lots of people are doing this already, cool. That just proves my point. Though you are apparently talking about different people when you go on to say their fans already have their mp3s, etc. How is that vinyl/cassette only? Or are you saying they put out some of their catalog as vin...

This has always seemed very "underground" to me... ftp://ftp.bunglefever.com/pub/ both the delivery medium (ftp server) and the music that's there. Bootlegs, outtakes, weird covers, outta print stuff (Mike Patton is quite the musical slut, not that there's anything wrong with that). This thing's be...

If CDs could be uncopyable (this was tried, early on, and failed) digital listening would be fine for this. Whaaaa???? You know that it's quite simple to record a tape or record onto your computer and put it online, right? The idea is for something cultural to exist exclusively outside of the onlin...

Completely retro pointless bullshit. You have at your literal fingertips the ability to promote your art to anyone in the world and now it's not cool enough? More elitism and needless hoop jumping needs to be put in place to make something more "real"? Pointless. It's hilarious how its okay and coo...

I deleted my snarky response and will just say this: Most of the things you're talking about are already happening. I'm not sure if it hasn't landed on your radar because it's TOO underground, or what. But, there are plenty of labels right now that only release vinyl or cassette tapes. There are ple...

Most of the artistically relevant underground musical movements today use vinyl and/or cassette as the primary physical distribution method. But, the idea of being completely "offline" is an old guy idea that doesn't really resonate at all with the youth who have spearheaded nearly every artisticall...

I'd be worried that a huge bump at 30Hz would cause all kinds of problems that might not be apparent on your monitoring setup, especially if it's also causing problems that you CAN hear.
