The New DIY Part III
(Greg, Mac, Yancey: aka the cute boy table)
Mac McCaughan, Merge/Superchunk/Portastatic: "I feel so old fashioned having a label." Does things musicians don't want or like to do, fans might like one band on the label and seek out others. Unauthorized ownloading of big sellers isn't as important as the sales of smaller artists on Merge.
Emily White, Whitesmith Entertainment: On Family of the Year'ssocial networking/online presence "It'a a big difference when it comes from the band and not one of my interns."
