Dangerous Minds uncovered a letter from Epic Records A&R exec Bruce Harris explaining to a fan why he had passed on bringing The Clash to America. Complaining about production was so 1977.
Also, it is important to note that the Clash’s album for all its quality (which is evident in the overwhelming lyrics, the blistering music and the feverish performance) is not at all matched by the level of production which is an enormous drawback. The band’s live performance is many times better than what is on this record and one has to question the artistic integrity of creating an inferior sounding album. It’s not a valid artistic judgement to say that the production is deliberately shoddy...

Incubus are featured in a new online article titled "Spirited Return" in which frontman Brandon Boyd has trouble finding a place for his band in the current music scene and contemplates giving away their upcoming album for free.
From the Article"It's exciting — I don't care if people buy our music or not, I just want them to hear it. The way record deals are organised, bands are never really going to make any money off albums. To make money you probably have to sell a million copies so the chances of making money are astronomically low. So why should you care? I loved what Radiohead did. In my ideal world, we would give our albums away and if fans liked it enough, they could buy it."
