Noel Gallagher Could Run For Office

Only a politician could say something absolute like Oasis will never give away a record like Radiohead did and then do something that's almost like he said he wouldn't do.  But Noel Gallagher did that since Oasis will now stream their new album for free.  True, they aren't giving it away, but it's at least 80% hypocrisy.  I can understand Noel's point: a band needs to be paid.  But maybe ownership of music is not the way to go.  Certainly, there are other ways to raise captial.  Selling music to sites that distribute it for free and then show advertisements is one way.  Encouraging ticket sales is another.  For a 90's alternative band, Oasis sure is stuck... in the 90s.

Anyway, off to see the Raconteurs.
