Where does music go when it’s no longer sold, streamed and very few physical copies exist? Or when it costs more to keep it online in stores than the songs make in a year? I think about this a lot.
The Icon and the Axe was a band that never sold a ton and is not on Spotify or iTunes but it’s a record I’ve always loved. Here’s a track from it. If you want your own download of the record “Propaganda” grab it for free at http://www.theiconandtheaxe.com.
I think that’s the last place to find this record. I might have one or two CDs left in my archives. That’s it.
