The Null Device

Not drowning, waving goodbye

EMI have dropped David Bridie and My Friend The Chocolate Cake (scroll down) for not shifting enough units, some two years after releasing his album Hotel Radio, crippled with iMac-killing "copy control" mechanisms, and refusing to listen to his concerns about it pissing off his fans. (And it was quite a good album; kind of like Ian Brown's Music Of The Spheres only more interesting.) Anyway, Bridie walks out of the deal with full ownership of his music, and into deals with Shock and Liberation, so all's well that ends well.

Good. If they re-release the album in a friendly format, I think more people will buy it (including me).
