FAIR SHARES: It's not as new as the New York Times seems to think (Dodgy did the same thing a year or two) but another band, Grey Eye Glances, have got the cash to release a record by passing the hat round and selling shares. It's an interesting approach to producing music - rather than getting bankrolled by a label, you draw down the cash from fans and 'angels'. It's a system that's worked pretty well for theatre and indie movies; it's kind of curious that it doesn't happen more often in music.
