A record label used to be able to look at a tree and say, 'That
would make a great table.' Now all they can do is take a finished table
and sell it at Wal-Mart. - Alan Elliott
"Now that MySpace is here, you don't need a label to be heard
... The world is all about energy. If you can generate energy, it will
ultimately translate into money." - Billy Corgan, Smashing

and our job to help you do it!
