Negativland: A Fistful Of Lawsuits

Tony Fletcher, Creem, April 1993

"I don't think there are any record companies right now in the real sense of the word. We're all in the fashion business. You used to be able to sell records purely on music and musicianship. Now it's packaging, media, television and video." – Chris Blackwell, President of Island Records, 1984

Total word count of piece: 4109
