Bloody-Disgusting has gotten an exclusive blog post from Davey Suicide regarding the problems with music these days and what fans can do to reclaim the music that they love so dearly. He laments the “manufacturing” of shows such as American Idol and The Voice while commending those who “…feel when something is genuine”. Read on for Suicide’s post.
Davey Suicide just released the Put Our Trust In Suicide EP, which you can get off of iTunes.
“Why is music today in the gutter waiting for rats to pass by and take a piss on it? All of the manufacturing has gotten out of control because labels and TV shows like American Idol and The Voice are resorting to creating an assembly line of artists instead of letting them create organically. The microwave generation and demand for instant return aren’t letting bands stand a chance in this revolving door of fair-weather glory.
Music fans can feel when something is genuine and they can also feel when it’s created to sell. It’s the same difference between dating a girl who is a star fucker and someone that wants to be with you because of who you are. It’s the difference between the fan that steals an album to be cool versus the fan that buys the album and reads through the lyric book to memorize the words. Where do we go from here then? I think it starts with us, the music fans. We need fans to start supporting bands that put the ‘art’ back into ‘artist’. Bands that eat, breathe and sleep what they do. After all, we are the future. We are Generation Fuck Star.” – Davey Suicide
