The Brian Jonestown Massacre – Prozak Vs Heroin

If one was to be suckered in by the hyperbole surrounding Radiohead’s latest release you could be forgiven for thinking that they are the great innovators (musically certainly but otherwise read on). Up to this point trying to get a worthwhile free download from the Oxford lads would have required a PHD in html mp3 extraction. The truth is that they are the highest profile act to jump on to the mp3 give away bandwagon, which is the music bloggers lifeline and one we have pinched from for several years now. Some careful searching pre the ‘In Rainbows’ roadshow would have revealed a raft of top quality free album’s from artists with an already good profile. Examples include Explosions In The Sky ‘The Rescue’, The Crimea ‘Secrets Of The Witching Hour’ and pretty much all of the Brian Jonestown Massacre’s back catalogue. So Radiohead have tapped into an already vibrant car boot giveaway, from which they will extract the maximum ticket sales, merchandise and limited edition hard copy editions. Many are sure to follow in their wake (hurray, it must be said). They are undoubtedly clever blokes but not quite the wide eyed visionaries the press would have you believe. For that particular accolade here are the BJM. KD
