Re: ETK vs ME

I think another reason why Tim gave up is financial. Why bother doing the group thing when no one cares? I recall reading that Margerine sold 40000 copies. Considering the quality of the music, that's just absurd.

But you also have to consider money made from touring and t-shirt sales. Probably not a ton of money, but given Stereolab's popularity, it couldn't have been peanuts either. They definitely played larger venues in my town after the ETK tour, and I recall these larger venues being pretty packed in '97, '99, '04, and '08.
