Just How Much Does A Band Make From A CD Sale?
(antiMusic) The Berzerker don't need no stinking record label and in fact think they can make far more money selling their new CD directly to fans. Blabbermouth has the story: In a new online video, The Berzerker has taken a page out of Steve Albini's (NIRVANA producer) book and listed a breakdown of what a band actually gets paid for a CD sale.
This was done because The Berzerker has fulfilled its contract with Earache Records and left the label to be "truly" independent. The new album is not even available in ANY retail stores.
Mainman Luke Kenny had this to say: "I'm f**king sick to death of fans NOT knowing where there money is going when they buy a CD, Steve (Albini) has the right idea, to expose this s*** once and for all. I mean, a percentage of your money is going to the f**king retarded b***** sitting behind the counter at the HMV/Tower, [or] wherever she is, on the phone painting her f**king nails and couldn't even tell you where the 'metal section' is if you asked her. So what if we sell less records being totally independent? At least NOW with Berzerker Industries, if people want to support us by NOT downloading our music, they can."
