England “rock” band, Oasis, is in the works of dropping a new FULLY PRICED album, Dig Out Your Soul. Emphasis on the FULLY PRICED part. The band is making it their sole responsibility that no songs leak out on the net for free and that fans are paying for their tracks. Gallagher is attempting to make his money back for all his hard work and dedication to his craft. He comments on the “honest-box” policy that Radiohead used to sell albums as, “a great way of getting a load of free marketing.” He further states,
”That’s not our bag. I didn’t spend a year in the most expensive studio in England, with the most expensive producer in America and the most expensive graphic designer in London, to then give it away. F*** that.â€
Personally, I wouldn’t even waste my energy and computer’s memory even attempting to download their new album. The only way I would listen to it is if I was being paid to. Sounds like they are all in it for the money. Isn’t that what art is all about? Making as much cash from as many suckers as you can. Oasis hasn’t come out with some cool shit since I was in the 4th grade, and at that age, I am sure I was just too naive to know better.
