"Getting popular after death is no longer cost effective….All I can say to any cult rockers who are planning on shuffling off early doors is – don’t do it. Stay the fuck put. In a couple of years time back catalogues will be worth nothing as hard copy becomes digital file ephemera and record companies sell off their entire catalogue for jack shit to Spotify or whoever the latest online tuppence ha’penny merchants are. Don’t die fuckers."
From this hilarious and profane interview with Luke Haines.
