I see more and more bands asking for money on Kickstarter
It's just one of those things that happen in a world where music isn't really valued... even by the people who made it. It's not a route I'd ever want to go down when it comes to music. Sure, if you've got a solid financial plan for an enterprise that has a hope of turning some profit, up front investment is a good idea. But a kickstarter to make some music? It's like a strange blend of holding your own talent to ransom, and begging.

If you take you're band seriously you'll seek a number of funding routes to raise capital, including your own pocket. If that's the ONLY thing they're doing, well - sticking feathers up your arse does not make you a chicken.
it's weird because all you really need these days is a laptop and some instruments to get your music out. after that, one would think you could either sink or swim based on the results.
but then, I went to art school and I know wannabe artists come up with all kinds of excuses. "well if we recorded in a studio or had better gear, we'd make better music or people would take us more seriously." or "we can't make a profit because everyone is file sharing and stealing the music of bands no one has ever heard of."
This MH -2 does not face the person in search of a beautiful thing such as the new article.
A lamp goes on and off at the time of on and off.
It works perfectly as much as it is surprised to be an old model.
As for the thing 30 years ago, it can't think of it.
