Lack of Tip Sheet posts... 1 Month, 3 Weeks ago  
To me the dearth of posts here illustrates the total collapse of the global music industry as people who are incapable of hearing, finding, making or promoting mass appeal music rely on specialist, niche music to make their salaries justified.

No real love for music anymore. Executives simply work out how to make some profits by aiming at tiny audiences.

No interest in the industry (one of the reasons I started The Tip Sheet was to praise or criticise executives; that was one reason we took no advertising, so we could slag off Chairman and Proprietors without fear).

Very sad.

Even the record stores, supermarkets, coffee shops only play the 80's classics or 80's naff.

And it all could - should - have been so different. Back in 2001 retailers should have been warned to do deals with Downloaders to give massive discounts to anyone bringing a computer or phone into stores and downloading through them. Ditto Streaming. I blame the BPI (and publishers and BASCA) for not anticipating the changes online was bringing. Surely, by 2001, it was clear this would affect the music industry? I remember NAPSTER. But then I'm old.

Well, if this bit of the forum is dead, it needs to be turned into something else.
There is nothing we can do about the industry.

Maybe unsigned artists or people doing it just for fun would like to post their stuff for people to listen and comment on?

"There is nothing we can do about the industry". Is that really so? But if true you may be right; perhaps we should turn this Forum into a way of mass appeal cross over music talent getting noticed.

I think there is still an issue with getting music to it's audience.

You can promote it to your ten thousand friends on social media, but that is a different skill and can be pretty miserable and definitely not for everyone.

Those who just quietly make music seem to be a bit stuck.

And if you do think you can change the industry, Mr King, I am right behind you, cheerleading with pompoms.

I was in HMV today, to get McCartney III for a friend. Again they were blasting classic rock and 80's rock. HMV need to get listening booths again, it was nice to scan a random under the scanner and the album would play digitally with headphones. It was great to get a taster of band you've never heard of.
