Thoughts and reflections – selling the soul

The music industry in modern times is a wash with symbolism , it's not really a new thing, but now seems to be a plague of  artists showing these signs, and to be honest I'm pretty sick of it. The young are digesting these symbols in there sub conscious unaware of there nefarious origins. It can be linked to the infamous satanist A. Crowley and he's history is linked with many dark acts, Jay Z now advertises his famous saying do what thou wilt...So where does that leave artists like myself, you may observe symbolism in my artwork, but I'm just trying to highlight the controllers and believe me I'm NOT selling my soul.The pyramid of the music industry is awash with puppets serving corporate interest, Bono and his hand over one eye, ed Sheeran, they all seemed to display what is called a calling card. Basically there willing servants , maybe I'm unlearned , but it seems everyone was to be apart. Music is a voice for the voiceless, a working man or woman's chance to express there opinion , but instead they want to join the 'club'. It's easy to lose faith and believe all our heroes are just clones in the vessel called the music industry. But there's great songs under the radar and role models who still have a level of morality to display. Activist, feminist, pacifist ...where's the protest...we still live in a free world...so express ...hopely my music can inspire...and for one thing I'm not signing that contract. My soul is mine. Thankyou. Peace out xx

My favourite Record Labels

  • Sub-pop ( mudhoney, soundgarden, green river, nirvana, tad)
  • Topic records (copper family, oysterband, june tabor)
  • Rough trade
  • Epitaph ( offspring, nofx, pennywise, bad religon)
  • Monkeywrench records
  • Six degrees (Issa Bagayogo)
  • Silver arrow records (black crowes, chris robinson brotherhood)
  • Trojan records (reggae and dub)

I'm not really bothered what label bands are on, if I like it I like it, independant or corporate. But the best scenes are born out of independant labels, as shown below in my selection (in brackets who were on the label, past or present).
