Given you haven't even heard the album, I really think you should shut the fuck up. I hope you're proud of your conjecture when you wake up of a morning. That was a hideous thing to write. I hope people damn you before they've met you.At what point does a label owners dedication to that labels musical direction get muddied by the artists going off on a tangent?
So Kode9 loves the earlier work of Darkstar and sends them off to record an album, they come back telling him about a change of line up, a new singer and present him with a CD chock full of JB tinged indi-fodder. It has to be an uncomfortable moment as he looks into their little glowing hope-filled faces whilst listening to it in his big label boss chair, elbows on the Simon Cowell-style desk he's just had installed, fingers steepled in front of his face.
Not heard it yet mind, maybe its fucking awesome.
