I know someone in a band in pretty much the same situation. Next big thing early 00s band - big label, a few top 40 singles early on & debut album that sold well. They’re still going, but mainly because they enjoy seeing & playing with each other now - as I understand it, it’s in not viable as a sole means of income. When they release a new record, pretty much all of the sales are in week 1.

The guy I know set up his own business. Only one of them is still a full time musician and that’s through playing in a few different bands. I’d imagine he’s scratching a living rather than coining it.

For bands of that era I suppose a lot of it depends what they did with their money from the time.

I remember one of the kids from Be Your Own Pet talking about using his advance money to basically outright buy a house. It probably wasn’t anything nice, but I’m sure it’s made still playing music in a much smaller band a decade later far easier.

Well, let’s just be glad that Billie Joe Armstrong isn’t a member of My Vitriol


#1450

I assume that’s AM?


#1451

So did anyone actually go to the London shows in the end?


#1452

Anyone else hear @ma0sm’s MyVitrol song in their head whenever they go to open this?


#1453

FTFY


#1454

Get “You can’t spell vitriol without LOL” in a loop in my head about twice a week.


#1455

one of the all-time great dis contributions, that.

“maaastering? what’s maaaastering?!”


#1456

@ma0sm, make it downloadable, please, I’ll even pay for it!


#1457

PS unless you need a crowdfunding campaign to get it mastered. I know a chap called Som who’s an expert at that sort of thing…


#1458

Done!
