Does anyone have anything they'd like me to ask them? The interview is predominantly about how they market their bands, and how bands ought to market themselves to them, but if something cool comes out of here, I'll be sure to ask it!

Ask them how they feel about bands 'making it' and maybe a story on turning them down.

Good. They're not that great to begin with.

Ask them if bands are able to negotiate the terms of a record contract. Ask them how bands are able to make a living if the record contract requires them to pay back all the money that is invested in their recording and performance.

Another good one might be 'the death of the record company' and crowd funding etc

Hey guys! Interview took a little over an hour, so I'm just getting back to you:

Like I mentioned, most of it was stuff related to PR, but I did get some of your questions answered.

As far as torrenting goes, they're not too concerned about it. As he put it, the best people to work with are people that have a history of buying CDs anyway. Many people live in a generation where they've always had free music easily accessible, so you focus on how to present a physical product to them as more appealing. That's why CD booklets are getting bigger, and vinyls are becoming more popular- some people buy them, don't even listen to them, and just hang them on the wall as a piece of art.

The things they're looking for in bands who they see as being able to "make it," include:
1. Some sort of online or social following that shows that they are consistently able to connect with their fanbase, and that they have one.

2. The band should have a local following, and be able to sell 100 or so tickets on average to a hometown show.

3. The band actually has catchy, marketable music.

Bands they've turned down included Norah Jones and Blink 182

catchy marketable music, (assume commercial generic) oh well.

They missed out on lots of $$$$$ with those two

You should have asked them about their thoughts on how the Offspring's Smash is tied as the best selling independent album.
