Mecca Normal interviewed on Democracy Now! by Amy Goodman


Interview with Brett of M’lady’s Records

“Empathy for the Evil” — the new Mecca Normal album — comes out on M’lady’s in September.

From a Sound Stalker interview with M’lady’s Records’ Brett Lyman:

“Money is a mistaken way to organize any creative endeavor, as it’s a spiritual vacuum. Like cocaine. Or buying stocks. Those things have their place in the cosmos, apparently, but they have no place in underground art and writing and culture. So we continue to explore what’s possible with little to no capital. We are not capitalists here at M’lady’s Records, and refuse to own the rights of any of the records we’ve issued. They remain the possessions of the hard working people who made them, full stop.”
