“Metalheads Against Alternative(http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Arena/6200/MAAM.html)”

If that doesn’t say all… “Welcome to the beginning of the end for what you call Alternative Music. …I want to put and end to the trash that is being shoved down our throats by television and radio. …I am open to anything that will take down the reign of the Alterna-freaks and put Heavy Metal back on top of the music world where it belongs.”

“Intro to the Polish Music Industry(http://www.inter.com.pl/warsaw/w02-13.htm)”

How’s this for a budding Punk Rock movement: “The Polish music scene was formerly dominated by the state concern Polskie Nagrania, which did not take much interest in western pop and rock music. It concentrated on promoting domestic artists and classical music, offering also a modest collection of jazz. The resulting gap was soon filled by both emerging record companies and the spreading piracy that offered bootleg pop and rock tapes and CDs. It was the piracy that took full advantage of the missing legal regulations and took over the market in its early stages.”

“Musical Greenpeace(http://www.mihra.org/2k/)”

Music Industry Human Rights Association: “The global music industry is basically a ‘cottage’ industry with massive human resource facilities. It is in the firm grip of 6 publishing and recording conglomerates, a few conduit collecting organisations and a national union. For an individual it could be seen as a small pond filled with large sharks. An enormous number of younger musician composers gamble with their lives and work hard to construct a creative career, the odds are heavily stacked against them, sooner or later, unless changes in eco legislation are rapidly forthcoming, the cartel will inevitably cast them aside.”
