Techdirt:The Pixies Say No To Record Company, Focus On Touring
Techdirt:The Pixies Say No To Record Company, Focus On Touring The Pixies have taken an innovative approach towards making money while not having signed a record deal. I really love the idea of bands making CDs of concerts right after they happen. Most of the time I like the live versions of songs more than the studio versions and each time a song is palayed live it is different. Sometimes in very subtle ways — but different. I think that one thing that a band could do would be to sell CDs and mp3s of their shows directly from their websites. They could offer some mp3s for free and sell the CDs or CDs full of mp3s to fans directly. Very cool on the part of the Pixies. This monkey’s gone to heaven.
