When I first saw my opportunity to get off Geffen or Interscope or whatever the hell it was at that point, one of the things that helped that decision, besides the fact that I was totally sick of the major label thing, was the idea of the new possibilities that the Internet seemed to offer. Nobody seemed to really know exactly what it was. Some people had done some things, like Wilco had offered their records for streaming. It was sort of, we don’t know exactly what this could mean for us, but at the very least, we knew that you could buy records on the Internet. So, we were like, “We’ll sell records on the Internet!” Before that, you didn’t have an alternative outlet. You pretty much had to be on a major label to get your records in the stores, and there was no other way to sell them, and that was the end of the story.
