Citigroup Now Owns EMI

EMI is the fourth largest group of record labels in our great music industry. Well now Citigoup has purchased Maltby Investments, who owns the EMI Group. EMI has Katy Perry and the Gorillaz with back catalogs of Radiohead, Pink Floyd, the Beatles and others. Will this change anything? Probably not. It sounds like there is just more people to pay and rob the artists of money.

Blur Reuniting?

Damon Albarn told BBC 6 Music that he is planning on working together with his hold band mates of Blur. It’s been about 6 years since that happened last. He’s been pretty busy with his other band Gorillaz, which I’m sure you know about.

Damon told BBC: “Well, we met up yesterday and had a really nice chat. I think we’ll probably do something, well we did talk about doing something, maybe, in January… (It will be) something small, no career-based world-domination ideas.”

Gorillaz Rip Off Eddy Grant?

Eddy Grant has made quite the accusation stating that Gorillaz ripped off his song “Time Warp” and called it their own on their single “Stylo.” Grant states

“I am outraged that the Gorillaz have infringed the copyright of my song ‘Time Warp’ claiming their song ‘Stylo’ to be an original composition. My song sits almost note to note with their release and is a blatant rip off.”

I sort of hear it but it sounds slowed down. Check it for yourself
