Tin Box Set of 150 Hunkasaurus songs – Price Break over

March 27, 2015

The introductory month price of $30 for my 150 song, 9 CD, Tin Boxed Set, is over.
The Price now is $50 (includes postage and handling).
I chose that price because 150 songs at $50 = 33 and a third penny each – which seems to fit a music project!
Thanks to all who bought during the introductory period.

Why are so Many People Saying Bad Music is Good?

March 24, 2015

WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE SAYING BAD MUSIC IS GOOD?

Music has really reached some new lows. Why are so many people saying it’s great when it isn’t? Why are so many people listening to generic formulaic music and claiming it’s innovative and new? Why doesn’t a single person in the music press stand up for good music, and against the bad that everyone else is praising so much?
Has corporate music jumped the shark?

Consider some of these points:
==========

This from SNL nasty critic character, Jebidiah Atkinson in talking about contemporary music and all the Grammy winners,
” (It’s a)… Spotify playlist of a 12 year old girl.”
===========

This is being passed around as Things that Will Disappear in our Lifetime e-mail.

MUSIC : … The music industry is dying a slow death not just because of illegal downloading. It’s the lack of innovative new music being given a chance to get to the people who would like to hear it. Greed and corruption is the problem. The record labels and the radio conglomerates are simply self-destructing. Over 40% of the music purchased today is “catalogue items,” meaning traditional music that the public is familiar with — older, established artists. This is also true on the live concert circuit. To explore this fascinating and disturbing topic further, check out the book, “Appetite For Self-Destruction” by Steve Knopper and video commentary, “Before the Music Dies.”
============

This from Billboard, Feb 14, 2015 :

This is from an interview of Lucian Grange, Chairman/CEO/Universal Music Group. the #1 person on the, 100 most powerful people in the music business, yearly list.

He is quoted as saying,
‘The industry broke five new artists in 2014, and we broke four of them.” Iggy Azalea, 5 Seconds of Summer, Ariana Grande, and Sam Smith. ”
UMG owns three of 2014’s top five labels.

Why would the biggest music exec in the world be proud that 1. he only released 4 new artists in a year, and 2. that the industry only released 5 in a year.
That is a massive failure. Where is the rest of the world? I’ve found 200 greats that should break out – see the BIG LIST http://wp.me/p5S9X-36
============

MUSIC is 80% 3 Companies: Warners/Universal/Sony (WUS)
For real vitality we need not 3 but thousands of competing record companies. Every time there has been a great variety of record companies, the music has improved, often to a point where there is a golden age of music.
==========

The FORMULA: electric guitars, bass, drums.

Some of us, including me, think that the music business is stuck in the same electric guitar, bass, and drums formula done better 60 years ago. Some of us think the real creativity is to break free of bands and go a different way from the 60 year old path that everyone else is on.
How can a musician fit a 60 year old formula and call it new?

===========
Music Down to Coke or Pepsi, Swift or Beyonce.

Here’s the dilemma for the music media – either talk about thousands of musicians and their great music, or just cover Beyonce and Swift over and over and find out what they wear, and where they go.
Music now is down to Coke or Pepsi, Swift or Beyonce.

Where is the media? Rolling Stone, Spin, NPR, anyone – anywhere???

WHERE ARE THE HITS?

Compare the massive amount of hitmakers from 1955-1975 to the last 20 years.

POSTISM, WHERE A LITTLE REBELLION BRINGS VITALITY BACK TO MUSIC.

There is a music revolution going on called Postism music out of Dallas. Some of these musicians are changing music history with some possible world’s firsts; while the dance pop stars that are over hyped seem to be most interested in more publicity.

POSTISM is 3 things, a revolution against what rock/rap/country/pop have become, its back to early rock and roll’s simple honesty, directness, and passion with an emphasis on melody and great SONGS, and it’s a music that includes all types of music from every place in the world.
(and It’s part of the overall art and media revolution).
