While Radiohead and others are dumping the major labels to experiment with offering free music to their fans, trip-hop band Portishead isn’t into all that “music wants to be free” jazz. Don’t expect their music to be distributed for free anytime soon.
Here’s what Portishead’s Geoff Barrow has to say about the situation:
“so then…….music for free is it? well fucking great. so if you get our album for nothing or very little, does that mean i can get my boiler fixed for free? i could tell the plumber that its all for the love of sharing and its to combat the evil money grabbing corporation…….”
While you might not be able to get free trip-hop, at least there’s free hip-hop….
