About a month ago, I chatted with Daniel Pujol (of MEEMAW, Denny and the Jets, approximately 78 other bands) about his philosophy on putting out music, which more or less boils down to “CDs blow, they’re overpriced and nobody cares.”
I can’t really argue with that.
I had originally planned to do a mini-documentary about why vinyl is a “big deal” again, even though the music industry may or may not be in decline.
Well, that all fell through and I've moved on. It’s probably for the best, seeing as how All Things Considered/WPLN basically just did that story without the movin’ pictures and from the perspective of Third Man Records. I didn’t want that interview to die in the abyss of a Belmont computer hard drive, though, so I stitched it together real quick for your viewing pleasure. There's also this.
If you’ve got a jones for PUJOL live, by the way, you’ll be able to see him at the aforementioned Jack White love shack when he opens for Nobunny on May 21 at 6 p.m. $3 gets you in, plus a crack at a fancy black/blue vinyl copy of the Nobunny set.
