Hi Jon,

It's certainly OK with me for you guys to put up shows, I'm a longtime tape-trader supporter (though I do think online trading takes a lot of the fun/community out of things). I personally don't record my shows or keep copies of 'em & I'm always puzzled by artists who do.

Thanks for listening to my songs!

Best

John

CP: Does it bug you that everybody tapes your shows?

JD: I am totally in favor of tape trading, and file sharing never did anything wrong by me. People got into The Mountain Goats after downloading my stuff. The only people who are afraid of file sharing are the people whose albums are so dull presentation-wise that nobody cares about owning the actual finished product, and the people who have so little connection to their listeners that said listeners have no reason to care whether the artists they like are getting reimbursed for their efforts. My listeners are very kind to me and have tended to buy the albums whether the MP3s are available for free or not, and I always try to make the albums nice to look at and to hold in your hands while you listen. Usually by going completely overboard with text credits, but you know what I mean.
