THE PROBLEM WITH MUSIC IN NEW ZEALAND AND HOW TO FIX IT & WHY I STARTED AND RAN PUPPIES
By Ian Jorgensen (Blink)

The title says it all.

The first half of the book is a collection of essays I wrote (mostly) in 2009 inspired by Steve Albini’s legendary essay, but decided I’d need to run a venue first (the second half of the book) before publishing it to try some of the ideas.

  1. I have just read a big chunk of the book and especially the section on APRA and am astonished. Ian is a whistle-blower, he has uncovered a very cosy arrangement; retailers being told the music they are paying fees for is being distributed to the creators of it – but it’s not. It’s an adhoc system that seems to primarily benefit international artists on ‘hits’ radio, and APRA itself. Indeed, they do operate like gangsters demanding payola. I always though something funny was going on and they have have years to manage the art of obfuscation. The games up.

  2. Great book – written by someone who really knows what they’re talking about rather than yet another academic expert that never did nothing in the real world.
    I hope some of these ideas come to fruition, as they deserve to be tried as alternatives to the current misguided spending of public monies.
    Well done Blink.
