MANUFACTURER ERROR LEADS TO COMPACT DISC MADE OF PAPER–RAP FANS CONFUSED
After years spent polishing her new full-length album, Dessa woke to bad news on Monday morning. “We’ve never had this problem before,” said the Doomtree CD manufacturer, “but the record came off the line…as a book.” In a lightning-fast entreprenuerial manuever, Doomtree Records decided to market the book anyway. In under fourteen minutes, the Minneapolis collective formed a publishing arm, Doomtree Press. Their business plan was drafted via text message. At a midday press conference, Ted Romeo announced, “They’ll just have to read it analog–page by page.”
At press time, the CD manufacturer was “correcting the problem” and was confident that Dessa’s record could be pressed in the near term.
