“The New” INXS deathwatch pt. 1

Is the new version of INXS already hitting the skids? Hard to say, but the band has parted ways with its US label, Epic. The band’s album Switch has sold 375,000 units in the US. Not quite a shitload, but decently somewhat respectable, I suppose. Still, it’s hard to imagine the band going on as long as the original incarnation did. Times have changed, and any band that is “created” with the help of a phone-in audience is…well, more prefab than The Monkees ever thought about being. Certainly everyone knows that these newer kids just want the single to download and not the entire album. The labels know it, the TV execs know it…but do the bands know it?
