It's 2010 and the music industry still doesn't understand the internet.

Remember when MTV played all those videos that bands payed tons of non-recoupable money to make and the record companies happily let MTV not pay a dime to do so? Now they are trying to take blood out of the stone and are locking their artists into little video boxes with pad locks on them. Even the ones who don't ask the record company for money to make the videos! READ THIS

The band OK Go has a fun new video:

Happy New Year!


At the end of 2009 Joe and I found ourselves without a singer/lyricist as Danny decided to commit himself to the culinary arts. Can't really say I blame Danny for the change of direction since the last two years have been less productive then they should've been and certainly music didn't earn us cash or the promise of cash like it had in better days. At some point we might have Danny finish a few songs that we should've released ages ago, but since he will be in Spain for the foreseeable future, I wouldn't hold your breath waiting to hear those. We will miss having Danny's vocals, lyrics and guitar, but that was his choice to make. If Danny changes his mind we've left the door wide open for him to return but we are proceeding as if that won't be happening. We've chosen to keep using the name Marqui Adora but we realized this won't please all of you. When it comes to my favorite music plenty of bands I enjoy went through major changes through the years and this will certainly be a big one for us. Some people like early Pink Floyd, some middle, and some later. Some people like Peter Gabriel with Genesis and others without. At first we thought we'd release music under another name, but then we realized that would be abandoning this bunch of songs to the scrapheap since no further attention would be given to them.


The next step for Marqui Adora will be releasing a few instrumental tracks Joe and I have been recording this past year. My self imposed goal is to have them out before the end of time...


Sometime after that Joe and I will be putting out more music and, as usual, you should expect the unexpected.
