The English new-wave outfit The Pocket Gods last featured in 2013.
In their typically angular perspective of music and the music industry The Pocket Gods decided to raise awareness of streaming royalties.
Identifying that to receive the minuscule royalty for a song played on Spotify it needed only to run for 30 seconds, so last year put out a compilation LP entitled 100 x 30, which was as is suggested on the tin – one hundred songs lasting thirty seconds.
In a follow-up on the 15th of July The Pocket Gods & Friends release the compilation Shakespeare Vs Streaming (100×30), another one hundred track release with songs just reaching the threshold for royalty payment, to mark the 400th anniversary of the death of The Bard. The thirty-fourth, by The Pocket Gods – Shakespeare Verses Spotify.
Shakespeare Vs Streaming (100×30) is available on Amazon.*
