Itâ€™s not that hard ladies and gentlemen. A good hook can still sell records. As KOAR always claimed, itâ€™s not the technology that is sucking, itâ€™s the songs that are sucking. Why these major labels hire 18 year olds and call them A&R scouts only to sign their local highschool bands remains a mysteryâ€¦as much as a mystery as the hype overÂ Arctic Monkeys. Maybe its not a mystery but mere stupidity. Is America being victimized by UK hype mere stupidity? I think so. Basically, we are looking at a 2 fold problem boys. Not only is it harder to find a great band that can write great songs, but hiring people who cannot indentify a great band with a great song is disasterouse. Its called a negative trend and a financial loss.
