Something Phishy This Way Comes: Leave it to a reunited neohippie rock and roll band to show major labels how to sell music via the Net. “First thing Jan. 2, barely a day after the end of the long show, the band launched a new website, www.livephish.com, where fans could, for a small fee ($14.95), download CD-quality files and create a homemade three-disc set of the complete show. A booklet and artwork for the CD labels were included. If you needed supplies like cases or blank CD-Rs, you could buy them via the “dry goods” section of the site. Everything a fan might need was right there. This, my friends, was the beginning of the future of legitimate digital distribution of pop tunes.”
