"Don't buy our music from iTunes"- The Cure
The Cure (meh) have told fans not to buy their new EP from iTunes as it will cost them a ludicrous £7.99 for 5 songs. I've commented before on the way iTunes has the industry by the balls and when it comes down to it, the label and the band stand more chance of making more money gouging £7.99 out of fans for a remix EP than they do out of a successful full length. The back end through the site is criminal. It's one of the few circumstances when the band suffer, the fans suffer and the label actually suffer too.
