Danny Goldberg Channels Thomas Klebanow

In today’s Austin Chronicle, music industry vet Danny Goldberg (who once partnered with Matador at two major labels) channels The Wire’s Thomas Klebanow. Danny remarks about the music business, “We have to do more with less” — precisely the mantra of the bland, cost-cutting editor of the Baltimore Sun. To be fair to the Danster, he does go on to recommend that the industry be more open to experiment. But we’d hope that he doesn’t think laying off talented creative types and pursuing flash in the pan stories is the wave of the future. Really, this was a tone-deaf moment for the former Led Zep publicist.
