Since I’m usually so damn serious here, I thought it’d be nice to have a good laugh about something for a change.  I really enjoyed this Indie Life-O-Meter posting. “Your garden variety, moderately successful indie band lasts an average of five years. Chances are, if you’re not already on Matador or Sub Pop, yours won’t even last that long.  What will break your band up, you ask? Well, if it isn’t the oft-cited ‘creative differences,’ or the excruciating tedium of touring the United States, it’ll most likely have something to do with sex or drugs. It’s anyone’s guess, but don’t wait for anyone to, because no one cares.”  Then again, if you’re an indie band, maybe this ain’t so funny…
