I went into one of those mall record stores this morning (for the first time since 2008), saw Jack White's CD on sale at about $20! (roughly translated into dolares) $20!!! I make that in a day's work.
Fuck it all and their stupid rip offs. napster 4lyf

I've been buying less cds recently and more records- but i still try to buy everything i really like. Partly from a moral standpoint (if an artist, especially a new artist has spent ages making his art, then he deserves to be rewarded for it) and partly because I like owning and collecting it.

I tend to download first- play it for a couple of months and then if it's going to get load more listens i'll buy it.

I feel the same as you karl- really reluctant to get rid of something i've spent years collecting.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with values of CDs in years to come. As a very general rule of thumb- the more a record (vinyl) has sold over the years, the less it's worth now, as there's so many copies in existence.

My cd collection is made up mostly of stuff that hasn't troubled the top 10, and as sales figures have collapsed so much in the last decade meaning there won't be millions of copies in circulation (for the most part), i wonder if they'd be worth something in years to come?

Same, and for the same reasons, I buy everything I really love on CD, and try to get all-time favourite-type stuff on vinyl as well. Saying that I have charity shop and Music Magpie'd a lot of my collection which doesn't quite fit this criteria for convenience and storage reasons. Got about 50 CD albums now down from fuck knows how many. Always download first though, I don't spend less on music this way, just better. No more buying crap D4 albums for £14 cos you thought Get Loose sounded alright on The Evening Session last night.

Went in to HMV for a scavenge today - fuck all worth having and not that cheap either. Interwebs said they had Yuck's album for £3 - naw. Their music section is a really hodge podge piece of shit :D The Last Boy Scout on DVD for £2.25 was the only tempting thing and fuck queuing for ages like an arsehole and having to listen to cunts shouting at staff about to lose their jobs because their poxy vouchers aren't valid just for that.

Some joker did stick Stop Crying Your Heart Out at full blast on the store stereo at one point though, legend.

Same here, but everytime I buy something I realize it is completely useless and unnecessary, don't know how much it will last.

I really don't know. Right now CD's just feel so disposable to me that I can't imagine it. With video games it definitely seems to happen. Nowadays boxed Nintendo/Mega drive games are worth shitloads & I've heard Playstation 1 titles have begun to rocket up in value, same with toys of the era. It's probably the nostalgic part of people twenty years down the line wanting back what they had as a kid but I'm not sure this logic will apply with music in the same way.

I've bought my favourite records from the past couple of years on vinyl but even now I'm thinking whats the point, they for the most part gather dust & when I do want to hear those records I always choose the convenience of sticking on Itunes.

Yeah they would of been my bet to be the first to go. Who the fuck goes up to a high street to pay £3.50 to rent a film that they will have to bring back a day or two later? It's a completely outdated idea. I expect to own a DVD for that price. They if anyone had to move their business model as soon as they heard about the invention of netflix. The minute LoveFilm was born in the UK blockbuster was fucked.

The one up my high-st tried everything, everytime I looked in they'd be trying something else, chart CD's was the last thing I saw, either way it was too late.

Blockbuster already died in Colombia...there's still a couple of stores but they're always having these huge clearance sales, not like anyone even cares anymore. We can buy packs of 3 pirated films for $1 anywhere on the streets here.

Serves them right, the bastards, for not hiring me in 2006.

Exactly, Eddie, you got them through the door. You didn't get them from your local record shop or even from HMV, which is why folk are struggling to keep their jobs and everywhere's shutting down. It would be hypocrtical of me to criticise you for it though - barring a handful of CDs I got in the Fopp sale this year, I haven't bought anything in ages. These days I mostly just stream stuff on Spotfiy, which gives next to bugger all to artists, but occasionally I'll buy stuff directly from the artists, either through bandcamp or at gigs.

mp committee hearing on the streaming industry paying peanuts.

MPs heard the coronavirus crisis had made it apparent that artists' earnings from streaming are "pretty horrific".

youtube are really tight payers. :|

I find that article really, really sad. I wouldn't want to go back to a pre-2000s music industry particularly, when you were forced to pay ridiculous amounts for crappy CDs, but when you think what has been lost since then, you do wonder if music fans have simply stood back this past decade and watched the industry that supported the bands they loved collapse and die.

It's particularly brutal for 'indie' bands - I use that term loosely - who are just starting out, or cult bands. As that article says, it wasn't that long ago that a new band that pressed and sold 1000 EPs could return a decent profit. That would then pay for a tour, or a new EP, or attract the attention of a bigger label, and they could go on and flourish. That simply doesn't happen any more. The lower end of the music market now is chaotic, full of bands that juggle full time jobs who play poorly promoted bit-part tours and release badly produced albums on the cheap. There's as much good music as ever, but more of it is going missing and unnoticed.


The 2012 music scene for new bands / cult artists was like a nirvana compared to now.

The best part of two years with no live music? You wonder whether the industry will ever return to its pre-pandemic levels.

I suspect live music, whenever it restarts properly, will become even more centred on enormous arena / stadium shows played by the same old heritage A-listers, with the occasional new pop star being added to the roster. People pay for Spotify and one, maybe two, big gigs a year.

The idea of going to a dingy bar, in an age where people are terrified of social distancing, to check out a band they’ve never heard of, will become even more strange to the majority of people. It was always a niche interest but it’s going to become even more a minority pursuit now.
