Listening to or reading about the state of the music industry can be about as exciting as shopping for paper towels. But if you have 30-minutes to listen to this riveting talk by Bill Drummond, you’ll know every major event that’s happened in the industry in the last 130+ years and why music’s future might depend on not recording it. He forgoes industry speak for a historical fly-thru of what happened to an art form that became a product.
Drummond is best known as co-founded the late 1980s avant-garde “pop group” The KLF. He also co-wrote ‘The Manual (How to Have a Number One the Easy Way)’ which is a tongue-in-cheek step by step guide to achieving a No.1 single with no money or musical skills.
