Bandcamp Remains Cool

I've said before, when I first started this blog back in 2012, I wanted it to be like dear, departed Crud Crud - strictly obscure 45s and singles. Bandcamp had been founded in 2007, but, per Wikipedia, it didn't see it's rise in popularity until 2010-2011, and I wasn't a month into the blog before I was sharing Bandcamp links. That was followed by what were probably months of me sharing songs from Bandcamp and feeling guilty that I wasn't sticking to the original CNQ directive of only posting about obscure vinyl, but finally I got over that.

Bandcamp is really cool. I've always preferred it to Soundcloud.
