Music Industry Wake Up Call?
First a internet only song, Crazy, takes the number 1 UK chart spot by storm then it's replaced by a song from a girl who until very recently was playing her gigs through the net and didn't have a record deal. Maybe some of the music industry suits will start to view the internet as a tool rather than as enemy territory. Sure a lot of music is downloaded illegally on the net but it should be clear for all to see by now that rather than reducing sales this wide-spread free distribution is feeding new interest in music and driving music sales. All that's needed now is a way for unsigned bands to distribute and promote their music without the need for a traditional record deal.
