honesty box/cheapskate [Oct. 2nd, 2007|04:47 pm]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |radiohead-amnesiac]


hurrah for radiohead!
pay what you want for our new album?
marketing genius.
how else do you get your new album mentioned on the evening news?
they are all over the media.

enough of my unbridled cynicism.
it really is a quite interesting move which could backfire.
record industry types will be watching very carefully
to see just what exactly people are prepared to pay,
even if they don't have to, for a rock and roll album.

an opportunity to send a message to big business perhaps?

i think i'll pay them £1.99 (my Motivating Price Point)
and send them a link to my music...

i wonder what they got per album with EMI?

Great idea.

I just hope people are a little more honest with an honesty box than they are usually.

I'd be prepared to pay a fiver maybe. Or £4.55 so the total charge is £5.
