Via Digital Music News:

…Thom Yorke is telling bands to skip the machine. In a recent interview, Yorke warned young artists that the music industry establishment is a “sinking ship” with “months rather than years” before a collapse.

Instead of hitching to that hull, the singer urged bands to self-release, and keep control in turbulent times. “I guess I would say, don’t tie yourself to the sinking ship because, believe me, it’s sinking,” Yorke said. The interview was conducted for the not-yet-released Rax Active Citizen Toolkit, oddly a textbook…

“When the corporate industry dies it will be no great loss to the world,” Yorke continued.
