What is it about some musicians who are reluctant to accept that recorded music is a commodity to be exploited for quick capital gains? I don't see the difference between fast fashion and the hyper-commodification of records being made today. It's all consumed and forgotten in a short space of time, innit? And dusty musicians (with a little bit of reasonable potential, that is) shouldn't be ashamed to ask for donations if they are failing to make ends meet. It's not like every single musician is going to get a million-dollar record deal. Capitalism should be openly embraced by any creative person to the fullest.
