"How To Buy A Record Review"
Nov 09, 2011, 17:13
I know Fanfare isn't necessarily a publication that HH contributors would be reading but I thought this was fascinating ...

The allegation in the responses underneath that no ad = a guaranteed bad review is especially shocking.

People, usually on the outside looking in, love to talk about Rock as being a venal business but I have never come across this kind of thing in pop press. Whether the allegation is true or not it is nice to see the shoe on the other foot for a change!

Reminds me a little of the England Rugby Union players (so often held up as paragons next to their football equivalents) behaving collectively like churls, dolts and divas at the World Cup in NZ.
