Double legal setback for Kim Dotcom
MegaUpload founder Kim Dotcom has had two setbacks in his long running legal battle with the American and New Zealand authorities. Prosecutors in the US, of course, want to extradite Dotcom so he can face charges of copyright infringement, money laundering and racketeering in relation to his defunct file-transfer platform. Meanwhile the American music and movie industries are suing him for damages.

The first setback comes in the Mega founder's bid to keep his financial affairs a secret. As previously reported, the record companies and movie studios earlier this year raised concerns about how Dotcom is funding his seemingly lavish lifestyle, new business interests and political adventures when all the monies made by MegaUpload were meant to have been frozen in 2012.

The content companies are concerned that Dotcom has secret access to hidden Mega money which should have been set aside to pay any damages they may or may not be rewarded if and when their litigation against him reaches court. For his part, Dotcom insists he is now living off and investing wealth that he has generated since the US authorities forced his MegaUpload enterprise offline.

The movie studios, in their legal proceedings, asked for Dotcom to declare his worldwide assets, and earlier this summer a judge approved that request. To that end the Mega man was forced to provide information to the courts in late August, though continued to appeal the ruling demanding the financial figures be shared with his Hollywood opponents. But the appeal has now been denied, meaning the financials will now be shared with the studios, though they will not be made public.

Meanwhile, in a second ruling in the New Zealand courts this week, Team Dotcom have been denied access to papers from various government agencies in the country which the Mega team's lawyers said they needed to prepare their case against America's extradition application (in particular to hone allegations of collusion between the US and NZ governments to bring about Dotcom's downfall).

A lower court previously refused to give Dotcom access to the documents he wanted, so he sought an appeal via judicial review. But hearing that appeal in New Zealand's High Court this week, a judge reportedly ruled that there was no "air of reality" to the collusion claims and therefore no case for handing over the confidential papers.

The many winding and long drawn out Dotcom legal wranglings continue.

Virgin US chief to depart
Ron Fair is stepping down from his top role at the US branch of Virgin Records, according to the New York Post.

As previously reported, Fair joined Universal Music in early 2013 to head up a rebooted Virgin Music US within the Capitol Music Group, the division of Universal that brought together most of the American EMI assets the mega-major had bought the previous year.

There has been no formal announcement about Fair's position within the major. The veteran producer and label exec has worked at a number of record companies over his three decade career.

Jack Daniel's expands its music partnerships programme
The previously reported music-based marketing campaign from Jack Daniel's, which included that takeover of The Macbeth venue in Hoxton, is in the process of expanding around the rest of the UK.

And as Jack Rocks goes on tour, similar takeovers at grass roots music venues will occur elsewhere. Last weekend the drinks brand set up shop at Clwb Ifor Bach in Cardiff for the Swn Festival, and from Thursday until early November it will base itself at Camp & Furnace in Liverpool for the ten day Liverpool Music Week event.

The brand has also announced tie-ups with indie club franchise This Feeling and monthly Jack Rocks nights at venues like Leadmill in Sheffiled, King Tut's in Glasgow and Joiners in Southampton.

Jack Daniel's Senior Brand Manager Michael Boaler told reporters: "It's really exciting to see the Jack Rocks campaign spreading nationwide. Swn Festival, Liverpool Music Week and This Feeling have been leading lights in the UK music scene for several years now and we're very proud to be working with them. It's a natural progression of our Jack Rocks The Macbeth collaboration and it really does help champion authentic and handcrafted music as well as giving something back".

Spotify announces family plan
Ah families. I liked families. Do you remember families? They were good weren't they? Then the internet came along and screwed everything up, suddenly families were free, and that meant no one could afford to make new families anymore, and soon they were a thing of the past. But still, there's always photos of cats.

Anyway, Spotify is launching a new family plan, which means that if Bertha has a ten pounds a month super-duper premium account with the streaming platform, Mr Bertha, and their three children Bert, Barry and Boudica can all have their own super-duper premium accounts for a mere five pounds per month each.

It's a moderately clever idea, in that Bertha, Mr Bertha, Bert, Barry and Boudica are probably all already making use of the one ten pounds a month account, but this way, by allowing concurrent listening and individual playlist accounts for each person and such like, Spotify can squeeze some more cash out of the Barrington family.

It's "one of the most asked for features from our audience" said Spotify Chief Content Officer Ken Parks, after confirming that the new family plan would be rolling out in the next few weeks. Which is, presumably, why Spotify Family has been developed. I mean, Team Spot wouldn't have nicked the idea off Rdio or Beats who have both had family plans for a while, would they?

At the last official count (in May), Spotify said it had 40 million active users of which a quarter were paying for the service. Though The Guardian cites label sources this week who say the total number of users has since then topped 50 million. Which is nice. 50 million users.

Ah users. I liked users. Do you remember users? They were good weren't they? Then the internet came along and screwed everything up, suddenly users were free, and that meant no one could afford to make new users anymore, and soon they were a thing of the past. But still, there's always revenge porn.

Ofcom criticises Radio 1 over sweary Lily Allen festival set
Oh, for fuck's sake. Lily 'pimp and his crack whore' Allen has really gone and done it this time, and got BBC Radio 1 into hot, hot, hot water with media regulator Ofcom, which has thrown the broadcasting book at the radio station after it aired a live teatime transmission from this year's Big Weekend festival in Glasgow in which Allen, and to a lesser extent that Ed Sheeran, did a load of swears. In fact, Lily said 'fuck' six times in the space of 45 minutes, or approx 0.13 fucks per minute. Which is 0.13 more fucks per minute than I have to give about Lily Allen at this point.

Despite having only received two complaints over the profanity-packed performance, both Ofcom, and also the BBC Trust's editorial standards council, have found R1 to have acted in serious breach of media guidelines. Ofcom in particular has harked back to a similar case involving the Black Eyed Peas swearing at 2011's Big Weekend, and on that basis argues that Team Radio 1 ought to have been "more aware of this risk", and, as both promoters and broadcasters of the event, should have exercised better control over the scheduling of the line-up.

Radio 1 bosses have admitted that, in hindsight, it was a mistake to air Allen's early evening set live, ie in the child-friendly dinnertime slot, a move that seemed especially naive, as the Ofcom report notes, given her 'rep' as an artist apt to swear in her lyrics.

And in spite of its having posted signs backstage telling artists not to swear at the festival, the Beeb has conceded that it should have cut away from the show early on once it became apparent that Lily was in a sweary mood, and edited the remainder of the set to listen back to at a later date. Apparently whilst that was in consideration at the time, a senior producer opted to carry on with the live-stream in light of an advance 'strong language' warning by Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills directly pre her set, who considerately advised the "easily offended" to "go to the website and check out some other performance".

A spokesperson for the BBC has said: "We note the findings of Ofcom and the Trust; we have examined our procedures and tightened them accordingly".

Music publisher Felix Hines dies
Executives from across the music publishing sector, and beyond, were paying tribute yesterday to Felix Hines of Phoenix Music International, who died on Saturday morning while attending the Amsterdam Dance Event.

PMI confirmed the news on its website yesterday, writing: "It is with huge sadness and very heavy hearts that Phoenix Music International announce that our Head of Publishing, Felix Hines, has passed away".

"Felix joined Phoenix in 2012 after seventeen successful years in the publishing world, seven of them as MD of renowned London publisher Westbury Music. His extraordinary A&R talent was responsible for the signings of Riva Starr, Theo Parrish and Ragga Twins, amongst others, and took us to the lofty heights of the UK and US charts".

"His latest signings, GoGo Penguin, are shortlisted for the Mercury Prize, an achievement he was rightfully so proud of. He leaves a wife and devastated family, friends and colleagues. On behalf of his colleagues and the company, I would ask that over the next few difficult days you give us time to respond to any questions you may have".

Also paying tribute, via Twitter, Hines' former employer Westbury Music said: "Westbury are deeply upset by the loss of Felix Hines, he will be seriously missed by all who worked with him over the years".

 
  Approved: Badbadnotgood
Canadian 'post-rap' jazz trio Badbadnotgood are a good way down the road to 'establishment' right now, having released three numerically-titled BBNG LPs: the first two a mix of hip-hop covers and the odd original track, and the third, 'III', all bona fide their own ideas.

Trained at the same jazz programme in their native Toronto, the band's first big hip-hop tie-ins involved various factions of Odd Future, this after OF captain and jazz fan Tyler, The Creator noticed a series of OFWGKTA cover videos they'd posted online, and later came over 'in real life' for a now-kind-of-infamous basement jam.

Since that initial point of collaborative contact, BBNG have done production work for Wu-Tang Klan (for the score to 2012 film 'Man WithThe Iron Fists'); notably made the extraordinary, Ennio Morricone-on-acid-esque backing tape to 'Hoarse', a track on Odd Future wonderkid Earl Sweatshirt's first solo record, 'Doris'; and, in contrast, smartly downplayed their finger-print on 'Float On', the Charli XCX-featuring closing song to Danny Brown's 'Old' LP.

So all in all it's a strong CV so far. And Danny Brown's voice, in fact, is scrawled all over 'Six Degrees', the lead single to 'Sour Soul', BBNG's new joint release with Ghostface Killah, which is released via the Camden-based Lex Records on 16 Feb.

Looking like one to please both rap heads and jazz nerds alike, the LP finds the BBNG boys ripping leaves from the genre styles and recording modes-du-jour of the 1960s and 1970s; like on 'Six Degrees', a pithy mix of Wu-Tang's 'Gravel Pit' and the soundtrack to a hammy spy thriller, or the deeper, spaghetti western-themed 'Gunshowers', which features one-time Slum Village MC Elzhi.

Reggae artist and 'Tide Is High' songwriter John Holt dies
Reggae man John Holt died last Sunday morning, aged 69, in a London hospital, his manager Copeland Forbes has confirmed.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1947, Holt joined ska band The Paragons in 1964, writing his first big hit in the now-iconic 'The Tide Is High', which rose to fame again when Blondie covered it in 1980.

Having quit the Paragons in 1970, a solo Holt released another significant track, 'Stick By Me', in 1972, which became the highest-selling reggae single of that year. Hailed as an originator of so-named 'lovers rock' for his smooth, slow-paced ballads, Holt released a stream of solo LPs spanning the 1970s and 1980s, most recently 'Peacemaker' in 1993.

A cause of death is yet to be confirmed, though it's known that Holt's health had been poor since he collapsed on stage in the middle of a show last August.

On hearing of the sad news, reggae label Trojan Records - which released a chain of his records in the 1970s - posted a note to Facebook honouring Holt as "a huge talent and a true gentleman", adding: "He will be missed by his all those who had the pleasure of knowing him, personally or through his wonderful music".

Sleater-Kinney confirm new LP
Sleater-Kinney are back in the 'being a band that releases things' game, and will release a thing, specifically an LP titled 'No Cities To Love', on 19 Jan 2015. The news follows the amicable demise of short-lived Sleater-Kinney sideline Wild Flag this time last year.

The trio's first real body of work since 2005's 'The Woods', it's produced by S-K's long-time right hand John Goodmanson. In a press release, singer Carrie Brownstein says: "We sound possessed on these songs, willing it all - the entire weight of the band and what it means to us - back into existence".

Possess lead track 'Bury our Friends' for free, here, by signing on to the Sleater-Kinney mailing list. And speaking of which, here it is that song, with a 'No Cities To Love' tracklisting for afters:

Music Nation, FKA Twigs, Gwen Stefani, Pond and more

Other notable announcements and developments today...

• Channel 4 has commissioned another series of 'Music Nation', the Dazed Group's tastemaking/instructive music TV show. Starting on 5 Nov with a Ewen Spencer-directed short titled 'Open Mic', the various programmes will cover the London grime, Glasgow's 'art-school pop' and the 1990s-era British Asian rave scene. Details here.

• Mercury-al pop lady FKA Twigs has directed a short film titled #throughglass for Google Glass, whilst wearing and incorporating... well, Google Glass. All of which means Google Glass is finally, officially, cool. Check the clip, which features Twigs tracks 'Video Girl' and 'Glass And Patron', and lots of hip hop body-contorting, right now.

• As has been on the cards since last spring, indelible model, socialite and 'actor' Cara Delevingne is gonna have a go at making it as a popstar. Apparently, says The Sun, she's already written her first single, with (inevitably) Pharrell Williams 'on the mixing desks', the idea being to sneak-release it "without warning, complete with video and global launch".

• Park-life. Damon Albarn has told the Sydney Morning Herald that a) he's in the midst of 'reactivating' his all-CGI side-band Gorillaz via a new record set to 'drop' in 2016 and b) has "fully written" an album for his other, other, other band The Good, The Bad And The Queen. Still nothing on the Blur front mind you. Park-life.

• Gwen 'needs no intro' Stefani released 'Baby Don't Lie', her first solo single in eight years, yesterday. It's co-written by hitmakers Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder and Noel Zancanella and erm... I don't think it's all that great, really, if I'm being frank. Bit 'blah'. Bit pitchy, even. 5/10. Here it is anyway.

• Jess Glynn and Clean Bandit are re-teaming on a follow-on collaborative track to this year's mega-hit 'Rather Be'. 'Real Love', which in a pop-world's first is credited to 'Jess Glynn + Clean Bandit' (that's '+', instead of 'feat') will be released on 15 Nov. High-impact-sway in time to its inspirational pop classicisms now.

• Five-man band Pond, aka the out-wigged cousins to Tame Impala, are to release a new record titled 'Man It Feels like Space Again' on 26 Jan 2015. Behold the new video for featured track 'Elvis' Flaming Star' right here.

• Billy baldy Corgan has released the lead track off of Smashing Pumpkins' immodestly-titled forthcoming LP 'Monuments To An Elegy', which is coming forth on 9 Dec. The song, the title of which is 'Being Beige' (subtitled 'World's On Fire'), is here for those who want to listen to it.

• Many-stringed London pairing Public Service Broadcasting will lift off their cosmic-concept-driven new LP 'The Race For Space' - which is set to be released on 23 Feb - via a series of springtime live dates, starting on 22 Apr at the Corn Exchange in Brighton, and lighting last at London's Roundhouse on 7 May. Listings and tickets (those available from this Friday) are via this link.

Brian Harvey, David Cameron and the ringbinder of revelations
Brian Harvey off of East 17 was down Downing Street way yesterday, holding a giant white ringbinder he apparently said contained "evidence" which he wanted to show to the Prime Minister. Here's a photo a bystander posted to Twitter of it all happening.

Who knows what Harvey wanted to say to the PM. And that isn't a rhetorical question; if you know, I want to know what you know. Because right now my mind is rife with possibilities. Many strange possibilities.

The main point to take away from this is that Brian Harvey cared sufficiently about something to fill a ring binder with proof of 'it' and take said proof direct to David Cameron. Which is probably more than you or I have accomplished on a Monday afternoon for a very long time.

And yes, this is the Brian Harvey off of East 17 who once ate so many (three) jacket potatoes that he ran himself over. What of it?

--------------------------------------------------

Mike Read denies pro-UKIP song is "racist"
Now people, this is really important, so please take a moment out of your busy schedule and listen very carefully. Will you all please stop going around saying that one time Radio 1 deejay Mike Read is a little bit racist just because he put on a slightly bothersome cod Caribbean accent and sang a pro-UKIP song including the lyric "leaders committed a cardinal sin, open the borders, let them all in".

He's not racist. He's just xenophobic. It's not that he hates the Austrians, the Belgians, the Bulgarians, the Croatians, the Cypriots, the Czechs, the Danes, the Estonians, the Finnish, the French, the Germans, the Greeks, the Hungarians, the Irish, the Italians, the Latvians, the Lithuanians, the Luxembourgers, the Maltese, the Dutch, the Polish, the Portuguese, the Romanians, the Slovaks, the Slovenes, the Spanish, the Swedes and the peoples of Asia, Africa and the Americas. He just thinks they all look a little bit shifty and should stay away from the UK. Which is presumably why he's written this song; with rhymes like this, no one's going to want to come to Britain ever again.

The accusations of racism made since UKIP announced its "celebrity member" had put a song supporting the anti-EU party onto iTunes and Amazon were "extraordinary", said Read to his current employers BBC Radio Berkshire yesterday. "If anyone has taken it the wrong way, many apologies. But it was never meant to be remotely racist".

As for that slightly dodgy accent, well "it's an old-fashioned political satire" of course, and "you can't sing a calypso with a Surrey accent. I love all the cultures and creeds around the world". Just as long as they stay "around the world", hey Mike?

CMU legal would like me to stress that we have no evidence whatsoever that Read is actually xenophobic. Though as a former Radio 1 DJ, being known for writing rubbish songs and being a little bit xenophobic would be pretty good going in the reputation stakes if you ask me. And if Read is reading this: if you ever find yourself getting all het up about the immigrants and the toffs and the bloody Europeans, chill a little, and always remember, Frankie says "relax".
