Things have been a bit quiet around here of late, thanks to the end of semester approaching much faster than I’d anticipated. But I have a four month break to fill in about a month’s time so I’ll make up for it then.
But for now, here’s some news.
According to the head of HMV Simon Fox, CDs will become obsolete by 2016. While the sale of CDs has been dropping for quite some time, weren’t HMV the ones who went under in Australia because they sold albums for about three times the RRP?
Personally, I think vinyl is the king of formats at the moment and there will always be a market for the physical copy, even if it’s a small one. I can’t imagine a world where physical formats no longer exist, I’ve seen hard drives crash and delete everything. I’ve never seen a CD delete themselves.
Cosmo Jarvis is coming to Australia. While he’s just making a name for himself in this country, track like Gay Pirates and Sure As Hell Not Jesus are sheer genius.
Stephen Fry and Brian Eno are fans, and if you’re going to trust somebody’s judgement, you could do a hell of a lot worse.
Wednesday 12th October – GoodGod, Sydney
Thursday 13th October – East Brunswick Club, Melbourne
Stevie Wonder is coming to Australia. But you probably can’t afford to go.
With tickets starting at $500 it well above a cheap night out. And if you want the good seats be prepared to fork out $850.
Wednesday 26th October-Lyric Theatre, The Star, Sydney
