  Indies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Indies or East Indies (or East India) is a term often used to refer to the Malay Archipelago [1], in contrast to the West Indies, which refers to the Caribbean.
In a wider sense, the Indies is also used to describe lands of South and Southeast Asia, occupying all of the former British India, the present Indian Union, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, and also Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, which was last called the Dutch East Indies before independence.
Oftentimes, the East Indies are named after their colonizer, hence, British East Indies is India and Malaysia, Netherlands East Indies is Indonesia, and Spanish East Indies is the Philippines.

Indies are not the guys U2 or Destiny's Child thanked on Grammys night, but everyone in the business, artists included, understands that the indies make or break careers.
The indie promoter was once a tireless hustler, the lobbyist who worked the phones on behalf of record companies, cajoling station jocks and program directors, or P.D.s, to add a new song to their playlists.
Sure, once in a while the indies showed their appreciation by sending some cocaine or hookers to station employees, but the colorful crew of fix-it men were basically providing a service: forging relationships with the gatekeepers in the complex world of radio, and turning that service into a deceptively simple and lucrative business.
