So I Googled them, and it's no choices. Christopher Knab is a consultant trying to sell his services/books to people trying to deal with 'the business', by fostering a hostility towards the powers that be.
I'm not saying the labels are perfect, or that some hostility might not be well-deserved, but I'm also cautious about opinions from anyone with an agenda.
Fair point but, as with all communications media there's a feedback loop. The print media always claims (suriously) they are not shaping opinion but only reflecting it and I think there's the same thing going on in the music biz. I don't see either situation as sinister because that's just how things work.
More than anything, I am disturbed by my spelling of "provocative"!
