Man... on Bandcamp
« on: August 17, 2021, 03:11:12 PM »
Hi all, I'm just a long time fan of the band, making my first tentative steps onto the forum.

I was wondering (now out loud) if, as a legacy, the entire Man back catalogue could be made available via Bandcamp. It would, at least, be available for future generations (one would hope). But I guess that record companies and large corporates such as Spotify might get in the way, as I assume they will own the copyrights, etc. and demand their pound of flesh.

Just imagine, one click in the archive and almost instant playback of that tune...

Regards
Alan

I wasn't familiar with Bandcamp before.I have had a quick look.Over the years,I have bought a fair bit of Man product,first on vinyl then years later CDs.Like most people now,when I listen to music I go straight to Youtube and I find anything I want.Very occasionally a song will have been removed by a record company,but that's rare.Next time I see Man live if I like the new stuff,then I will buy the CD.Agreed,Bandcamp sounds like a good idea with the band making money and apparently,Bandcamp take only 15%.That said,when I want to listen to Man 1998 Starclub for instance I am not going to fork out when I have the CD sitting in a cupbboard upstairs.
Future generations,well you never know.A few years back Something is Happening got picked up and reused somewhere--our kind of music could make a big come bakc
