Turning Sub Pop Into Gold

Posted by on November 15 at 11:18 AM

Former Sub Pop employee Jed Maheu parted ways with the label over the summer and is starting his own PR company, Dudes PR. Nothing new in the music industry….what is a little, well, different, is one source of funding for his new venture—a Postal Service gold record he’s now selling on eBay. More than a cleaning out the closet type offer, the precious vinyl comes with a humorous rant about the music industry and Jed’s new place in it.
