Touch And Go Records Ceases Distro

"It's just a rising tide of / Mediocrity"

Venerable Chicago record label Touch & Go has announced it is ceasing distribution operations to focus on its label operations.  This is horrible news for the many small labels distributed by T&G as well being a huge blow to the future of the independent artist’s work appearing in chain stores alongside the tons of calculated careerist drek on their shelves.  Every such story removes another avenue for the Best Buy shopper to take when their tastes rise out of the slop.

I realize this economic news isn’t as sad as hearing that Mitt Romney had to sell off two of his four mansions, but I’m an American, and we each suffer in our own way.
