Feeling a bit camera shy


Our entire catalog is online and available here:

The 20th century way of doing things is over and now is the chance to think and act in a new way.

We must pay for the sins of The Rolling Stones and $100 concert tickets and the RIAA and $18 CDs. The greed business has overwhelmed the music business and it's time to push back at the tide. That requires sacrifice, and a shedding of the same greed you're trying to destroy.

It's time to think about art in a different way. It's time to rid music of the merchants and speculators who only want to make money, without genuine regard to art. Leave them out of the equation completely, so that all who are left are the artists and the weirdos.

The internet was created so that ideas and Ideals and information and feelings could be shared freely. Take the money out of it and find the humanity in it's place. That exchange of energy must continue. Money or humanity, you can't have both.

The artificial barriers that commerce creates have no place in music. The Artist and the Listener are allies, and the middle men looking for a payday are the enemy. Now is the chance to ignore the middle men and to exclude them. We have an opportunity to do something purely out of Principle.

As The Hypertonics, we believe in our music enough to share it with people fully unrestricted. Here are 53 songs - live, in the studio, remixed. Many of our friend's bands are on record labels that seem to work as hard as possible against the fans and ultimately against the bands themselves. Their songs will never be heard. There is no trust there and no curiosity within the listener anymore. All human emotion has been vetted. All that matters amonst the office-dwellers is the opening weekend cash box numbers and that isn't art.

Too many people have been too greedy for too long. The rest of us barely remember what it's like to not be looking for a payday. Maybe together we can revive the ghost limbs of art for art's sake.

If you want to destroy capitalism, you have to go first.
