a generation or the greed of the "music" industry... luckily a few bands and artists are around nowadays, in Portugal some new people have been doing some good music as we hadn't seen for some 2 decades.

Who? Link?

With the interconnectedness of the internet there is no excuse not to provide links... :-|

In the 80's I knew lots of people who claimed to 'be in a band,' I'd say can I hear a demo? They'd say yes, but would never give you one..or let you hear anything...
This way they got the 'Kudos' of being in a band but without actually having to do the work or ever get critiqued..the internet has changed that game...

Same with people who say.."I'm an artist"

I blame Stock, Aitken and Waterman. They began the trend of over-producing talent-optional z-lister wannabes, so that actual talent and being able to play an instrument meant fuck all, and all it took was a disco beat, autotune, styling and a dance routine to make you a star, and all these new stars wanted to do was 'be famous'. Not 'be a great musician', 'make a brilliant album', 'be a brilliant songwriter', just be famous, as if that was an end unto itself.

Nick, there's plenty of good new music out there. Get down to the Robin 2 on the 18th and see these guys, for instance:



http://www.babajack.com/

Then, from my home town of Worthing in Sussex, Royal Blood are doing great:



It's all out there.

I have never denied this..I have watched so-oooo many bands since 1980 it's virtually impossible to count now.. :ugeek:

The problem is there is far too much mediocre music out there too. At least with record labels screening the wheat from the chaff, they'd do some of the work for you..having to wade through endless bands vying for you attention can be tedious and soul destroying..THIS is the problem with music now.

If you have no talent, get off the stage..

Billy Brag saying twitter is the songwriting of this generation. An interesting if extremely depressing point of view..

sure there's plenty of mediocre music out there (and a lot of crap too) - but I doubt this is a completely new phenomenon... I guess, with the aforementioned internet and all, we're just exposed to so much more of it and it is getting more difficult to find the good stuff.
