Free advertising? No thank you!

I had posted two videos of small Japanese bands playing at Fuji Rock Festival here, but both of the artists' record labels asked me to remove them from Youtube.

Having such videos on Youtube and posted in a blog like this seems to me to be a great way for more people around the world to have a chance to hear those labels' artists, and therefore sell more CDs and have more people attend their gigs.

It's a real wonder so much great music continues to be made by some wonderful musicians in Japan when the record labels have no idea, not to mention the other ridiculous difficulties they face such as the live houses ripping them off.

Anyway, enough ranting from me.
