006: before art became a sellable commodity, the 'artist' was deemed as the 'village prophet'. they were the ones who would give the locals advice on life. they sang songs and told stories that everybody in the area would understand. they were not untouchable celebrities, they were your next door neighbours.
i feel that time is coming back. a time where we stop trying to make 'hit' songs or 'popular art' and start making stuff that is authentic. art that your postcode can understand.
