Quote Of The Day


“The internet has stopped people from going out and being with each other, creating stuff. Instead they sit at home and make their own records, which is sometimes OK but it doesn├óΓé¼Γäót bode well for long-term artistic vision. It├óΓé¼Γäós just a means to an end. We├óΓé¼Γäóre talking about things that are going to change the world and change the way people listen to music and that├óΓé¼Γäós not going to happen with people blogging on the internet. I mean, get out there – communicate. Hopefully the next movement in music will tear down the internet. Let├óΓé¼Γäós get out in the streets and march and protest instead of sitting at home and blogging. I do think it would be an incredible experiment to shut down the whole internet for five years and see what sort of art is produced over that span. There├óΓé¼Γäós too much technology available. I├óΓé¼Γäóm sure, as far as music goes, it would be much more interesting than it is today. I don├óΓé¼Γäót have a mobile phone or an iPod or anything. I am such a Luddite when it comes to making music. All I can do is write at the piano. In the early Seventies there were at least ten albums released every week that were fantastic. Now you├óΓé¼Γäóre lucky to find ten albums a year of that quality. And there are more albums released each week now than there were then.”
