I was reading an article in the local paper about a band called "Spirit of the West". They were talking about releasing their latest album on an indie label. Quote: "The beauty of it is you actually get to see some money...you see profits from your work. In seven years with Warner there were no profits shared with us and believe me, there were profits. They just weren't being shared. We know all about the voodoo accounting involved in pop music contracts." So we all know that major labels (ie. Sony BMG, Warner, EMI and Universal Music) do funny stuff but how about the other large indies like Matador, Ryko, Subpop, Epitaph...etc? Anyone got any stories?
