DAMN SON. Classic Jim Bob shit right here.

I had a meeting with Pledge Music the other week, actually. I wasn’t impressed buy their model. You know they take a whopping 20% of the money, and they only give you 60% of it, only releasing the rest when you have “fullfilled” the thing? So what’s the point if you need the money to make the record? As far as I can tell that model will only work for established legacy acts that don’t need help with the actual founding and just need a way to release music (and £100 handwritten lyric sheets) to their established fanbases outside of a major label system. Which is fine if you’re one of them I guess.

Oh, and high five Jim Bob for one upping my LITF2.5 video. Clever sod.

Ah, Bashy back in the day. Here he is talking about how he will never go to the Mobos and he’ll stick a gun in your mouth if you annoy him and he “invested dough in white dust.” Ur Mum Vol 1 was a hot mixtape. I remember bumping that in the whiplash on the way to San Francisco back in ’05. The Yank I was driving with was like, “these UK guys are too hardcore.” Ha!

Fast forward to ’09:

I saw Bashy re-Tweeted on Twitter earlier begging for Mobo votes. DAMN.
