Johnny Marr Says Spotify Hampers New Bands
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.18.2013



In an interview with NME, Johnny Marr said that Spotify is the "opposite to punk rock" and "hampers new bands".

He said: "It's been a strange time for music in general. Especially with the debate about Spotify. I'm not a supporter: I think it entirely hampers new bands, and the situation that Thom Yorke and Beck have been criticizing makes the old record companies of the '70s look like cottage industries. I can't think of anything more opposite to punk rock than Spotify. I have no answer to the economic side of the modern music industry, but I do think we certainly shouldn't stop valuing what bands do. I don't like great things being throwaway. Pop culture isn't just about 'the music, man'. It's a way of life, an aesthetic, and it's not just about pressing a button and getting something entirely for convenience."
