In other news Ted Leo told Louisville’s Velocity (link to the Aversion story) that sagging record sales may affect his ability to make a living as a full time musician as well as his ability to tour as extensively as he has in the past. As you probably know, I’m a rather big Ted Leo fan so this would definitely fall into the bad news category.
