latest podcasts

hi jon, great couple of podcasts these last two! especially todays.  
all the best for 2006 and thanks for all the music in 2005. I recall  
listening to your podcasts for the first time (in their entirety) on  
my iPod flying over the north atlantic to toronto july 2005,  
realising that podcasts were going to change my (music) life forever!  
sounds dramatic I know, but it has proven to be true. I've  
'discovered/ been introduced to' over fifty new artists (if one only  
counts them by CD purchases that is, since that epic flight of  
discovery...ha ha
thanks again


Thanks for listening.  I can tell by looking at server logs how many people are downloading the Podcast but I can't tell who's actually listening.  Thanks for the note and I'm glad at least one person takes the time to write!

Crap Your Pants, Say "Waaah!" article

After reading your great article last week on the dire state of the music
industry in relation to the consumer I came across this :
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/4596228.stm

 The BBC have got together 4 supposed "experts" on the industry in relation to
digital media and are going to get them to answer questions submitted by
readers.  I thought it would be interesting to get as many people as possible
asking them the real hard questions which you brought up in your article.
Already they are getting a lot of questions about DRM, artist's royalties and
copyright extentions.  I believe the question submission ends on the 24th.

Thanks for the note, but looking at the panelists is disturbing. Once again the media only recognizes the major labels as being "the music industry."  They're gravely mistaken and complete assholes for feeding the fallacy.  The thing that irritates me most is the fact that the major labels and their lawyers are writing the laws that effect the bands and businesses they have NO REIGN over.  These assholes will all be out of work soon with any luck.

schloss tegal

Do you ever play any Schloss Tegal, SPK or Lustmord? Do you take requests? This
is really a great idea and I enjoy your broadcasts. Thanks for the great work!

The Podcasts are restricted to the bands and labels with websites hosted at brainwashed.

Crap Your Pants, Say "Waaah!"

The returns are in, and, according to this article from Reuters, the music industry has hit an eight year low for sales.  Among corporate labels, there is much fretting and wringing of hands.  Reuters, however, fail to recognize the non-major label music industry, who don't seem to be pissing and moaning.  Major labels are a dying breed due to their own avarice, and nobody's gonna cry when they die.

i want my old brainwashed back

hey guys, it's now i dunno how many months since the brainwashed restyling and i still don't like it. Some of the new features are nice but what i liked most about the old brainwashed is that it was just 1 page and you could read everything in 1 go. Now there's just too many back-and-forth clicking. Also the site is way too slow to enjoy. I don't want to sound too negative - the reviews and the eye are still great - but this last year the overall brainwashed experience just wasn't as enjoyable as other years.

grtz

We're really sorry you feel like this but the old system couldn't work any more.  We're a site built from volunteers who make no money and have no time to pull off making a publication once per week any more.  The little amount of money that comes in through sales, sponsorships, and donations helps pay for operating expenses. 

We like it like this however, as we don't have to flood the site with tons of ads OR tiptoe around or favor advertisers, which, always compromises the quality of any publication.  News happens every day and reviews happen every day and this new format was the best solution we found to keep the content alive and rich.  Unfortunately for you, while there might be some tweaks in the future, we're gonna leave it in this format for the foreseeable future.

Thanks for your concern and feedback.

Antony and the Johnsons

Hello,

I am a director from Sweden, educated at the
National Film School of Denmark. I am a big fan of Antony and the Johnsons, and
i want to send him some of the stuff i have made; and if he is interested i
would love to make a video for one of his songs, since i am also planning a
trip to the U.S. I don't know if this is the right channel to go through,
please let me know.

Thank you for your interest but please contact bands through their labels or the addresses they print in their CDs.  Brainwashed isn't not anybody's secretary and doesn't provide access more than the artists do.

Coil Ape of Naples review

Dear Brainwashed/Jon Whitney,

Thank you very much for your track by track analyses of Coils 'Ape of Naples'
cd. I just wandered if you really listened to the album....it's really
heartbreakenly beautiful. Something you can't drily explain track by track, but
has to be listened to and experienced as a whole. For me, it's already a
timeless masterpiece, no matter what the tracksources are for the record. Just
listen...

The album has indeed been listened to many times.  Perhaps you don't understand that because the album is wrapped in pain, it doesn't make it any less beautiful.  This could be something "lost in the translation" if English is not your native tongue.  Thanks for reading.

Hey

I've been coming to the site for just over a year now and I thought it was
about time to just give a little thanks to YOU (whoever it may be), the person
who runs the site. The dedication put into the site is evident, I think in
particular the artwork collected of and by the band is amazing. Cheers for
making such a great site.

P.S. Any word on the wherabouts of the lost band (GY!BE)?

There's a lot of people who run the site.  Once there's word on Godspeed, we'll be happy to post it.  For now, check out plenty of the other bands all the members are involved in.

Mimir 7"

Hi there,

some months ago, I've bought the new great Mimir 7". Unfortunately, I just read
the comments on your site, saying pre-orders came with a DVD-R...
F***!!! If I only have read this earlier...!
I guess, you don't have a copy with this DVD-R left, don't you?!
Sorry for my late request...
Looking forward to hear from you!
Thanks, all the best

Sorry, but those who pay attention reap the rewards.  There is an email announcement list to sign up on to not miss any future releases and limited editions.

The Williamsburg iPod Awards

Recently brought to my attention by a Brainwashed colleague, the online-based "PLUG Independent Music Awards" touts itself as representing a "community coming together to recognize its own." Yet, judging by the choices on the ballot, the "plug" of its namesake apparently serves instead as a tool to keep both the organizers' and participants' heads securely buried within their own assholes.

Strange Podcast Behaviour


A friend has just contacted me about your Podcasts that are kept on Podcast.net.
Neither of us can get any of the old Brainwashed Podcasts only the current one.
We have both tried to grab the ones listed here :
http://www.podcast.net/show/396
with no luck. The RSS feed only lists two Podcasts, Kranky and the most recent
one.
Do you know if there a problem with their site? Do we both need ipodder
software to get them? iTunes only gets the most recent one

We only host one Podcast at a time usually for a number of reasons: server space and traffic being probably the biggest.  If you miss one, then subscribe and you won't miss another.
