Radiohead Was Right


Record industry giant EMI has announced it will be cutting 1/3 of its work force. Many EMI recording artists and independent artists are decrying the move as a blatant attempt by the label to control the work of its artists from the top down. This is the label Radiohead stepped down from when it was acquired by private equity monster Terra Firma. Radiohead has since self-released a wondrous album, In Rainbows, on their website, offering it to fans for whatever price they want to pay. I paid $3 for it. Reports have it that the album has been downloaded 2 million times. Eat that, corporate music bloodsuckers.
