The first post on Thou Shall Not Leak, a blog that went into our RSS readers right away for reasons that are about to become very obvious:
Instead of doing what everyone else has done and create a blog to leak music to people ahead of release dates illegally, I thought (largely since I work in the industry and people’s lack of care or respect for the hard work artists and the people who put out records appals me) I’d create a little blog to post the names, indelible and set out for all to see, of those people who’ve been given the care of having an early copy of a release and have set that responsibility aside and leaked the record they were entrusted with.
I feel perhaps a bit vindictive doing this, but on the other hand, the lack of care brought to the table by the other parties whose names will be listed here is more than grossly inappropriate.
Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments.
We’re not sure how exactly the proprietor is going to get these names–from his other blog, we find out that he lives in Ann Arbor and travels around to festivals “for work”–and we’re especially not sure that, now that he’s been linked from more than a few music-writer hangouts, he’ll actually go through with this project. But then again, that suspense will probably be great for his traffic!
