It's true: Radiohead have apparently re-signed with Warner/Chappell. In a statement, some douche (yeah, I said it) named Richard Manners from Warner/Chappell said, "This keeps us in the Radiohead business for a substantial time. We are thrilled to have come to an agreement with the band." Hahahaha! The Radiohead Business. Whatever.
Anyway, a bunch of fansites, blogs, and online magazines seem to think this means an end to the possibility of Radiohead signing to an independent label. Well, they're absolutely wrong. Warner/Chappell is DEFINITELY not the same thing as the record label division of Warner. As of today, Radiohead are not currently signed with any label to release their next album (due out in 2007). And besides, Radiohead were never even signed to a Warner record label in the first place; they were signed to EMI (and Capitol in the U.S., which is owned by EMI).
At least now you know, and knowing's half the something-something. Check this site out to see which songs Warner/Chappell has on list for Radiohead: :)
In other news, I've decided to start writing again for TMT. I got a sweet beej last night.
