‘It Seems Like Major Labels Are Run by Pedophiles.’
Quotes from the 2011 EMP Pop Conference:
"Don't be under the impression that [major labels] have any concern for what anyone on this panel, or most of the people we know, do. It seems like it's run by pedophiles trying to push the next ring tone."
– David Sitek
Moby: 'Major Labels Should Just Die':
"I truly believe, as an institution, most major labels should just die…
There was a time when the music business was incredibly monolithic and there were only two ways to get your music heard: sign to a major label, get your music played on MTV and get it played by big radio stations…
Thank God, that period has come to an end...
"Signing to a major, for 99.9% of the musicians on the planet, is the worst thing they could do... They've treated musicians badly. They've treated fans badly. They've treated the music badly, most importantly. For that reason, they either need to reinvent themselves or die quietly." – Moby
