Montreal-based rock’n’rollers Jonesy are releasing a new video for their anti-Record Store Day song, to be featured on their upcoming album. Here’s their statement:
“ We only have despise for that ludicrous hypocritical farce that is record store day. Very few record stores don’t play that sell out game, and most of them survived the 90’s and early 00’s because of people who don’t even shop on that day. We wouldn’t care if it wasn’t for the consequences of the thing: big delays for music that actually matters in pressing plants (nope, your expensive U2 repress doesn’t matter), and ridiculous prices on both records and press orders. Not to mention all the idiots who are after pricey collectables instead of music. In other words, Record Store Day is for losers.”
The song is from the forthcoming Jonesy 2nd LP, to be released later this year on Dead Beat Records.
