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

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.
