out of curiosity, i was wondering some of the specific things that set a label like epitaph apart from your run of the mill horror-story record label. ive heard numerous people talk about their respect for artistic freedom, and fair treatment of the artists, etc., etc. but... what does this really translate into? i mean, do they basically agree to front the production money for a certain number of album copies and expect very little in return (pecentage wise)... do they stay completely out of the way creatively and just work with whatever an artist gives them?

i dont mean to pry into contract specifics or anything, its just that ive always thought of record companies sort of as banks... they help someone put an album out financially (like a loan) and then expect some return (interest on their investment). is a label like epitaph just a more fair bank or do they not even operate that way at all? the marketing/production end of the music business has always baffled me so forgive me if i'm way off here.



Finally some one got it right, you where absolutely right about labels (should) being banks. But the world is upside down since artists have to beg labels to sign them so they can get screwed......

I hate buisness people....(ok I hate people in general, but especially corporate people!!)

They will take a lot of the business burden off of my own shoulders.
They will get my albums into stores everywhere.
They will do promotion and publicity.
They will give me a much better royalty rate than I would ever get on any other major label.
They will offer me more than I have been able to work out on my own up until this point.
They will and have treated me with a lot of courtesy and respect.
They will let me make the kind of music I like to make.

Epitaph. haha. i remember buying NoFX ribbed. i think sage wants to be as iconic as Tom Waits but he's nowhere near as rad as fat mike. Hmm. Epitaph did release some Dag Nasty stuff...
