Underground In Prydain’s article history has been gathered up and archived here on the Slow Dragon Music site.
Originally a blog focused on the relationship between music industry hot-topics and underground artists, UIP ran a series of interviews with musicians, managers, and other personnel. The aim was not to provide answers per se, but rather to delve deeper into the experiences of those who have gone before; people who have had successes and failures doing things a new way, and lived to tell the tale.
Below is a list of links to the articles first published 2014 – 2015, but you can also find them under the new menu tab at the top every page on this site. We’re hoping that we can soon provide some fresh pieces for you enthusiasts to mull over, but, naturally, that will have to wait for some interesting turns of events. Hope you enjoy the story thus far!
