With Wexford rockers Foot Squeaker reckoning that 1 sale on Bandcamp equals 25,000 Spotify plays, you might want to give your credit card a serious run out tomorrow!
Wexford rockers Foot Squeaker - brilliant name! – have done the maths and worked out that 1 sale of their new 'Wayside' single on Bandcamp is equivalent to 25,000 Spotify plays. If you're looking for something frantic and Foo Fighters-ish you know where to go, namely https://footsqueaker.bandcamp.com/releases
To further reinforce the point, Swimmers Jackson has shared his latest royalty reports, which range from the $0.00 he's gotten from Pandora and Apple Beats 1 Radio to the $28.51 and $53.72 iTunes and Spotify have respectively coughed up. Given that they're from May when his excellent new Murmuration album came out, it doesn't look likely the London-based Dubliner will be retiring any time soon. "Streaming is not the answer if you care about supporting music," he agrees.
Along with 50% off his entire discography, he's treating Bandcamp users to the last of his very fetching 2 t-shirt/CD bundles. https://swimmersjackson.bandcamp.com
Once you've purchased his fine wares, Mr. J recommends you check out fellow London-based Irish musos https://videoblue.bandcamp.com, which is the digital residence of one Jim Donoghue O'Martin; experimental Kerry noise outfit Tayne ; Dubliner Rob Corcoran and his Necessary Evils https://robcorcoran.bandcamp.com/releases; and Belfast glitch popper par excellence Aislinn Logan https://aislinnlogan.bandcamp.com

You can keep yer Mulberrys, Calvin Kleins and Saint Laurents; the only bag we're deigning to carry this summer is the one with Laura Elizabeth Hughes' hand-drawn design on it.
