Proberbly a very daft question I know but then I always come across as daft on the forums Rolling Eyes

If we buy stuff directly from the band (Hideous Records site / Merch Stand) do the band actually make a little more money out of it or not?

I have always wondered............

It kinda balances though doesn't it?
If you buy direct, they make more money.
If you buy from main stream outlets it makes them look good and supports them in terms of "industry presence" as it were, probability of being racked in more shops, etc.

In theory, they make the same money either way, but technically it should cost more from the high street shops but this is all in theory of course.

In theory the guys are getting paid a certain amount for each CD by the record stores and the stores have to add their cut on top of that, whereas in THEORY from hideous you'd just be buying it at roughly the rate the stores pay for it. HOWEVER, usually in order for smaller artists to get record shops to buy stocks of their cds they have to give an incentive of "freebies" i.e. if the store buys 5 boxes they'll get 2 boxes for free. In which case there's a chance that you'll buy a cd from one of the freebies which they'll technically make no money on. I guess if you're REALLY that bothered, buying direct would make most logical sense
