The day music became priceless

·

was the day I signed up to Emusic. And that's not an affiliate link, though it probably should be.
Are you happy, now that anyone with $45 to spare for a 3-month subscription can download all those back catalogue albums you spent so much time and money piling up?
If you're about to visit the record shop to catch up with your favourite bands, and if your favourite bands include Pennywise, Bad Religion, The Fall, Arab Strap, Pavement, and so on .... (Matador bands are limited to North America only, which is a big shame), you really should sign up now. OK, you'll need a broadband connection as well, and they're only 128kb/s encoded, but this is going to take some adjusting to, especially for the independent record shops.
