I was just reading an article about iTunes’ breakthrough with “indie” labels last month.

“We’re thrilled to add three of Europe’s largest indie labels to our iTunes Music Store in the U.K., France and Germany,” Apple Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs said in a statement. “We welcome Beggars, Sanctuary and V2 to the iTunes family and plan to add many more independent labels soon.”

What a bleeping joke. Indie relative to what? Lufthansa? Exxon?

I’m telling all of you, unsigned is the new indie.
