Pete Ashton's Weblog: The Future of Music

Pete on MySpace and music: “to understand its success you have to understand the appalling state of band websites. Invariably built in Flash they were impossible to navigate, obfuscated all the important information, were never updated and often made you register before you could hear any music. By contrast a MySpace music page has everything you need on one page—band members, influences, biography, tour dates and, most importantly, the actual music. You could cover it in shit and it would still be an improvement.”
