Re: Indiepopedia - An Indiepop Encyclopaedia

No one's forcing you to know about the band you like to listen to. Its a personal choice.

Re: Baking (cakes and stuff)

You fry pancakes, which isn't baking, but is a sub-class of cooking.

Is pouring a glass of whiskey cooking?

The Camera Obscura cover of 'Super Trouper' is one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard.
Funnily enough I did ask them to do a recording for me, but Tracy-Anne gave me a look as if she'd stood in dog shit.

Re: Communism and indiepop MP3s

Some will and some won't. You can spot the ones that will though, in the same way you can generally spot an indie label which is acting as a front for Exploit The Fans Records Inc. The problem is that in the battle between art and commerce, unfortunately, commerce almost always wins. I thought art ...

Re: Communism and indiepop MP3s

Its really easy to listen to MP3s, you have them on your 'puter and your ipod and they're really cheap to mass produce. Vinyl on the other hand is difficult to listen to, I mean you can only listen to it when you're at home with the record player set up and its expensive to produce. And whilst if y...

Re: Communism and indiepop MP3s

Sure, the costs will go up from using a regular pressing plant, but vinyl won't die, and it won't be impossible to make it. ....but to you indie record label folk, it'll look the same, you still get your box of records, just be a little more expensive. The fact is it is too expensive now even with ...
