UK music mag Mojo has posted a provocative piece bemoaning the decline of labels, for one specific reason: “The removal of the A&R man as a filter between artist and consumer, someone to ask the question ‘Where the f**k’s the single?’, means there is more utterly awful music available than ever before. Unfortunately, as artists take ever-greater control of their means of production, the aural tsunami is only going to gather pace, and with it comes the shortening of careers and the break-up of any residual tribal musical community who need artistic longevity to justify their emotional buy-in.” Well worth a read, even if you disagree.
