Duncan Geere Computers, Monitors Leave a Comment

I’m a big fan of multi-monitor setups. Although they look a little ridiculous, they really do enhance your productivity no end. At the moment, though, adding another monitor can be tough.

They could easily have signed a deal with some innovative digital firm to sell the new songs online directly to fans, with a CD release following later. That’s what I’d do if I was in an era-defining band with this kind of contractual freedom, anyway.
