Some fucker from XL Recordings has just emailed me asking for permission to use one of our covers from the early '90s in a book that [label boss] Richard Russell is writing about them. [We did a label piece about them and there's a group shot of XL artists/people on the front of the mag.]
Now Richard Russell is one of the two guys [Damon Albarn being the other] who completely fucked up Bobby Womack's last album on earth.

... But anyway, I decide to rise above that, be nice and give them the OK to do it.
She writes back to me saying thanks 'but I'll have to send out the paperwork on this'.
Fuck that. They ask for a favour and now they're telling me exactly how I will be doing it.
I just wrote back saying as Editor and co-owner I already gave my permission in writing. They can either take it or leave it.
Fucking paperwork. Cheeky cunts.

Ah, the sense of entitlement of record labels. Some things never change.

I'm betting you don't have a General Counsel.



I'm betting they do.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Only once they've done the paperwork, else the liabilities are horrific.

Not sure what possessed me to link this, but Bill Wyman’s doom-laden, dirty bass on “Gimme Shelter” from Altamont is not only amazing to listen to, it’s also the perfect tone for the doomed occasion. So heavy. Everyone else is choice here as well. Would love to hear this released in better fidelity someday.

The artist formerly known as Terre Harte I. Occasionally posts Nolans videos.

Something-something here about Massimo Cellino, beer and refrigerators.

Cant find an appropriate existing thread, but I applaud this effort.

I like it. What is it?

So Diddy reckons black music hasn't been given due respect by The Grammys - it's mostly not on the televised bit. He's right.
A shame his own music is such fucking shite, though, innit.
