about

A Hobby-horse.

As I traverse the highways and byways of Bandcamp searching for the source of the sounds that abound around the internet I am apt to stumble upon the ruins of pages abandoned by artists seduced by the promises of gold in them there hills of streaming services and mainstream download platforms.

All that typically remains is a three year old EP and a link, oft broken, to the website of their betrayal. As you likely conjecture, "sod you then" is the only appropriate reaction and a sale remains unconsummated.

But worse is when you realised the singer or group you've long supported has decamped the coop.

But worse is when you realised the singer or group you've long supported has decamped the coop and is now to be found on a region restricted outlet.

So I knocked out a song about it.

Not that I'm bitter.

Track Name: Bandcamp (Come Back)
And you don't release your music on Bandcamp any more
You tell us to stream on Spotify
Or go to the iTunes store

It's not as though you'll make the charts
Yet you've cut off those who gave you your start
It's not exclusive distribution
So why the nuclear solution?

Just a few short months ago
You were so pleased at every download
So why'd you go
And leave us so low

...SOLO!

Come back
Why don't you come back
Come back
Why don't you come back
To Bandcamp

It's where it's at
And that's a fact

Come back
Why don't you come back
Come back
Why don't you come back
To Bandcamp

Download in FLAC
Or several other formats
(WAV, Ogg Vorbis, MP3, AIFF, ALAC)

[Offstage: What about OPUS?]

Come back
Why don't you come back
Come back
Why don't you come back
To Bandcamp

And check your stats
Arrayed on a map

Come back
Why don't you come back
Come back
Why don't you come back
To Bandcamp

It's where it's at
I've already said that

Part 2
=====

Not everyone wants a streaming account
And if you don't have a Mac then iTunes is a pain
To install and maintain so if it's all the same
I'll stay right here on Bandcamp and build a collection
Where groups and their fans can make a connection

Via mailing list or maybe a subscription
Though without RSS the feed is not that useful
And a blog would be nice but I'm getting off track
So let's get back to the song and check out some more facts
It costs precisely nothing to start peddling your songs

Set the pricing as high or as low as you like
Get into production, sell some merchandise
And if you're living in Europe they'll sort out the VAT
Though my sales are so low I don't worry 'bout tax
But the nub of my gist is it's easy to employ

When band relationships rot which happens a lot
Try out that solo project you've been eager to start
Or knock out some reissues without any issues
Make some music again, even just for your friends
But if things start taking off just don't go sodding off

Come back
Track Name: Bandcamp (Slight Return)
And you don't release your music on Bandcamp any more

So why the nuclear solution?
