China blocks Bandcamp

2021-02-18 by giving 4 reviews to albums only 3 people in the world have heard STAFF | 173 Comments
In an unsurprising surprise move, The People's Republic of China has taken a new step in its ongoing cold war against its own culture: the music website Bandcamp has been placed on the Sussex end of its Great Firewall.

As of Tuesday, February 16th, the site is no longer accessible on Chinese internet. Although it is probable that independent artists will find alternatives or means of circumvention, the mid- to long- term implications of this move for China's DIY scene are ominous.

This comes as the stupidest maneuveur of a nation's government against its music scene since the UK failed to secure visa-free European touring during Brexit negotiations, essentially dooming its post-Covid live acts to an indefinite period of international obsolescence. This has been viewed as economically viable by many, since the UK fishing industry is predicted to reach its full peak at approximately the same time as the country's arts scene will be declared dead. At this point, there will be enough fish left in the ocean to allow for a period of precisely one year of profitable fishing.

Though it has maintained its original reputation as a gutterpipe of floorboard-produced amateur dross, Bandcamp has a become a significant international portal for pretty much any artist not signed to a major label. The simplicity of its business model, its upload process, and its ease of navigation have made it a landmark of the contemporary landscape and a viable precedent for an artist-friendly industry future.

Curiously, China's Bandcamp ban comes not long after the finalisation of a collaboration between Bandcamp and the Chinese Taihe Music Group, a company which snapped up a cluster of indie labels and secured their availability on Bandcamp. You can access their page here: taihemusicgroup.bandcamp.com/

A since-deleted post from an anonymous Reddit user has alleged that China's supreme leader Xi Jinping prefers Radiohead's The Bends to OK Computer on account of that album's relation to his lopsided micropenis. In potentially related news, a group of 24 Chinese programmers were tortured and jailed last month over charges of leaking putative images of Xi's daughter. The full, real content of these pictures is anyone's guess. Dissident Chinese indie bands are surely threatening national security with plots of graphic concept albums; these conspirators may well be tuning their treasonous guitars at this very moment.

Sputnikmusic's news team is currently investigating the matter.

Gee, you gone and overreacted. It was a trumpism alright, and I meant it as an add-on to Wretched's preceding anti-China rant that sounded grotesquely comical in much the same vein. And you know said Trumpism was directed primarily at the Chinese government in the context of trade wars, right? Containing insinuations of state terrorism etc. rather than derived stereotypical conceptions of Asians spreading Covid around the world. Anyway, can't believe I feel compelled to explain and defend myself over this. I'll riff along over any old trumpism I choose, thank you

You're doing a good job in making it seem like any use of trumpism in context is somehow inherently apologetic of all its possible meanings and connotations independent of situation and speaker. Sput comments sections are not exactly world famous for their purely referential and denotational nature, as I'm sure you are aware of yourself. And dude (or should I say: kiddo), if your article is replete with irony and sarcastic mockery itself (and why shouldn't it be - it's written for Sput after all), why would the comment section be radically different?
So best of luck in granting users that comment on each other's comments on what you wrote, the benefit of irony in the future.
Good article btw, keep it up.
P.S.: in case there's any doubt left, I like Asians.

"The People's Republic of China" HAH!! Nothing about China is republic OR for the people. Should be renamed "the greedy domain of fear and lies"

For the past 3 years and to this day, it has been known to the UN that China are committing genocidal war crimes akin to the horrific acts of the Nazi party. But we won't do anything because of economic repurcussions (a situation our respective countries leaders have put us in for the sake of greed).

Every time a Danish politician is being interviewed about China it's very cringe.

They have to somehow balance moral standards with trade demands. And pandas. And it's not pretty.

But what can they actually do?

Lie to them on the surface but enact deep sanctions in private and divest from them business-wise.

America should be sinking Chinese oil tankers in Iran. We have a treaty in place banning the practice, but Iran are a bunch of shitstains that break the treaties.

Banning Chinese fentanyl would be a good idea too. Something like 100 deaths every day. Its equivalent to chemical warfare.

America and Iran. Two of the most untrustworthy nations forming a treaty with each other based on mutual trust.

You really can't make this shit up.

"Banning Chinese fentanyl would be a good idea"

yea i agree with this. although i wonder what proportion of it is coming over legally for pharmaceutical purposes. regardless, the prescribing of fentanyl is honestly criminal

Can't wait to hear which year 'Christian' belongs to. Afaik Paul thought Jesus would be back during his life, so I guess 50 AD.
