Ok, so this is something we’ve been excited about for a while, but Gibson have released some new pics of their “Robotic Guitar”. No longer must tone-deaf guitar players drown in a sea of irony; the Robot Guitar can tune itself with a simple push of a button.

RIP Lucky Dube…

October 26, 2007 at 2:19 am (music) (, , )

“Every number, represents a human being
who was a father, who was a mother
a son or a daughter of this land…oh

Shudder… “that artist that we dare not speak it’s name” jumps on bandwagon

October 11, 2007 at 6:22 am (music)

Sigh. I can’t believe I’m mentioning her name in this blog at all, but given past posts, it deserves a mention.
Found via Techcrunch, it appears that Madonna is (in a way) following suit. While she is not offering free to public music just yet (ala NIN and Radiohead), it appears that Madonna has dumped the record industry.

While things are not set in stone now, it looks like the free release of music is sealing the coffin on the current incarnation of the record industry.

Following on from his “Steal my shit” speech in Australia last month, Trent Reznor, via the NIN site, released the following statement:
