Three men arrested as investigation into Romanian club fire continues
The three owners of the Romanian nightclub where a fire caused by pyrotechnics killed 31 people have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter, according to local prosecutors.

As previously reported, pyros used during a gig by Romanian metal band Goodbye To Gravity on Friday night set polystyrene décor alight, which in turn caused the venue's ceiling to catch light. A panic then ensued, and as audience members attempted to flee the building they discovered that only one of the two exit doors would open. The death toll from the incident rose to 31 people yesterday, and local authorities worry it could as yet increase further.

Romania's Interior Ministry has told reporters that it suspects the Colectiv Club was not licensed to stage gigs or pyrotechnic displays, while prosecutors are investigating why only one exit door was open, why so many people had been allowed into the venue that night, why flammable materials had been used to soundproof the building, and whose responsibility it was to insure the building.

The arrested owners of the Colectiv Club are yet to comment on Friday night's incident, though according to the Associated Press the owners of three other nightclubs in Romania have admitted that they too failed to uphold safety standards in their venues. Those people have publicly apologised for their failings, with one admitting he had put thousands of lives in danger and another saying he had been "ignorant and irresponsible".

Goodbye To Gravity guitarists Vlad Țelea and Mihai Alexandru were amongst those killed during the fire, while the other three members of the band were hospitalised by their injuries. Meanwhile tributes have been made to another drummer and a blogger/photographer who were in the audience - Adrian Rugina and Claudiu Petre respectively - who died after re-entering the club venue in a bid to save other concert-goers.

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis awarded both men the National Order For Merit yesterday for "the courage, altruism and dedication they showed ... trying to save lives, paying the supreme sacrifice".

Fetty Wap signs to Sony/ATV
Fetty Wap may not be able to sustain his sound in an interesting way across an entire album, but he can sustain a publishing deal across the entire planet, let me tell you. By which I mean he has signed a worldwide publishing deal with Sony/ATV.

Sony/ATV CEO Marty Bandier said: "It is always refreshing when a new artist comes on the scene with a bunch of hits like Fetty Wap has, so we are thrilled that he has now decided to become part of the Sony/ATV family. With a talent like his, there is no doubt he is both the man for today as well as tomorrow".

Because you can never have enough quotes from people from the same company, Sony/ATV's Shawn Holiday added: "Fetty Wap is the hottest breakout artist of 2015 and I'm so happy to have him join our already talented roster of songwriters. Even though he has already had back-to-back top ten hits, the thing that really excites me about him is he hasn't even scratched the surface of his full potential as a songwriter and the best is yet to come".

The deal was secured in partnership with 45th & 3rd Music Publishing, whose co-founder Tim Blacksmith added: "We are extremely excited and over the moon that Fetty is joining the family and we look forward to working with him and all the team at RGF".

RGF? Yeah, that's Fetty Wap's company, the co-founders of which, Frank 'Nitt Da Grit' Robinson and Danny Su Griffin, said: "Sony/ATV is legendary. We're grateful to be a part of an organisation that stands for artists".

And if you thought that was it for the quotes about this deal, then you're forgetting Fetty Wap's attorney Navarro W Gray, who chipped in: "The Sony/ATV partnership will create great opportunities for Fetty Wap's music to be branded through other mediums".

And I think you'll agree that was worth saying. Fetty Wap himself didn't say anything, but I'm going to assume he was "thrilled".

BMG buys S-Curve
BMG has made another acquisition to further expand the recording side of its business, buying New York-based pop independent S-Curve.

The deal covers both the recording and publishing assets of the indie, plus its founder Steve Greenberg and General Manager Milo Pacheco will join BMG with a brief to expand the music rights firm's mainstream pop operations.

Confirming the deal, BMG US President Creative & Marketing Laurent Hubert told reporters: "BMG is approaching the record business with the same ambition and sense of purpose we have brought to the music publishing business. Artists are not happy with the status quo, and many of them find BMG's core values of fairness, transparency and service very attractive indeed. Steve Greenberg is an exceptional record executive who will further build our capabilities in the recordings business. In S-Curve he has built a label which represents the best in popular music".

Greenberg originally set up S-Curve in 2000, working with the likes of Joss Stone, Fountains Of Wayne, Tom Jones, We The Kings and Duran Duran along the way. His label has had distribution alliances with EMI, Universal and Warner at different points in its history, plus he himself had a stint at Sony's Columbia Records in the middle of it all, so he's definitely seen the major label system from all sides. BMG, of course, has made much about how it is reinventing the way a record company operates.

Commenting on his new role at BMG, Greenberg said yesterday: "We're excited to begin the next chapter of the S-Curve Records story working within BMG. As a small indie who have had significant success in pop music, we are looking forward to joining forces with BMG, a company that combines an indie sensibility with the resources to amplify our success".

In-car entertainment is fast evolving, though the CD remains key for now
While most debate within the record industry centres on digital these days, labels are still selling a decent number of CDs, and while the format has been in decline for a decade and half now, it's certainly not yet been consigned to the music format graveyard, globally or in the UK. Which possibly poses the question: who the fuck is buying all these compact discs?

It's tempting to assume it's all old people, though research suggests that it's not as simple as that, and plenty of people in their 20s are still buying CDs. One reason for that may be in-car listening, because the new-fangled in-car digital-entertainment platforms we report on, every time a streaming music company announces its arrival on such services, are still only really built into higher end vehicles. Of course, you can usually plug a smartphone into a car's stereo system, but plenty of people still rely on good old fashioned CDs when driving.

While new research commissioned by record label trade group BPI and retail association ERA reveals that 20% of new vehicles sold this year will come sans-CD player - because of the internet-connected-car revolution - that does mean 80% will still enable drivers to get their tunes off little plastic discs, if they so wish.

The research by specialist auto industry consultancy SBD, published last week, does reckon that internet-based audio systems are likely to overtake CD players in new cars by 2021, as the costs of net-connected entertainment systems come down and therefore get installed into a wider range of vehicles. But, given the importance of the used-car market - and the fact SBD reckons more new cars will have CD players than not for the next five years - at least some of the kids will keep buying discs for foreseeable future.

BPI boss Geoff Taylor muses: "Cars are the second most popular environment for listening to music after our homes, so are a key part of the music ecosystem. Manufacturers design their models a good four to five years before they hit the road, which in the past has seen in-car listening follow trends in music consumption rather than lead them, but rapid advances in automotive design suggests that in-car technology will play a far bigger role in shaping how we listen to music in the future".

ERA CEO Kim Bayley added: "Just as in the home and via smartphone, digital services are pioneering new ways for music companies to reach the consumer and for music fans to access their favourite music [on the move]. The car is in many ways the final frontier for digital music, but one of the most striking things about this research is quite how resilient the compact disc is proving to be".

One person dies after stage lighting collapses at Chinese stadium
One person was killed and another seriously injured after stage lighting collapsed ahead of a concert due to take place in the city of Nanning in southern China last week. According to the South China Morning Post, emergency services had to pull fourteen people free after the accident during prep for a concert by Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai.

The show was due to take place last weekend at the Chinese city's Guangxi Stadium but was cancelled after the fatal incident at the venue last Thursday. Police are reportedly investigating the circumstances that led to the lighting to collapse while staff were still setting up the stage area.

Responding to the incident via social media, Tsai - who is often called the 'Queen Of C-pop' or 'Asia's Dancing Queen' - asked her fans to "please pray together for the victims".

Pandora to stream second series of Serial, Tidal moves into comedy and drama
As the catalogues of most streaming services are largely identical, the new battleground for these companies is rapidly becoming non-music content. The latest announcements in this area are that Pandora has done a deal to become the exclusive streaming partner for the second series of the 'Serial' podcast, and Tidal has started commissioning comedy and drama programmes.

A spin-off from popular radio show and podcast 'This American Life', 'Serial' launched last year, and over twelve weeks examined the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee in Baltimore to (unsuccessfully) establish whether or not her boyfriend, Adnan Syed, had been wrongly convicted of her killing. You probably know this, as everyone listened to it. Well, everyone except the majority of people who still don't listen to any podcasts at all.

"For people already listening to 'Serial' and 'This American Life', nothing will change", says 'This American Life' host and producer Ira Glass of the Pandora deal. "But we believe lots of people who'd like our shows simply haven't heard of them, or haven't started listening to podcasts. 'Serial' is the biggest podcast in the world, but only 17% of Americans listen to podcasts at all. That's why it's so exciting for us to work with Pandora. Pandora reaches millions of people who never listen to public radio or download podcasts. This'll get our shows to them".

Meanwhile Pandora founder Tim Westergren said in a blog post: "Pandora is all about discovery and this gives us a great opportunity - not only to offer each of you a great new experience, but to help 'Serial' expand its audience".

Elsewhere in music services not doing music, The Hollywood Reporter says that Tidal has commissioned two new non-music series to add to its catalogue. Today it will air the first episode of 'No Small Talk', a five episode stand up comedy series hosted by DJ Cipha Sounds. And in January, the streaming service will also run the second series of 'Money & Violence', a drama created by filmmaker Moe Verneau, originally shown on YouTube.

Other streaming services are also dabbling with non-music content of course. Last year Deezer made the first move by acquiring podcast streaming app Stitcher, integrating podcasts into its catalogue in May this year. Google Play Music is also preparing to add podcasts to its catalogue in the US. And in May, Spotify announced all kinds of non-music stuff, including podcasts and video, which have so far failed to materialise.

If it's podcasts you want though, you don't have to wait for your streaming service of choice to start serving them up. Take the CMU Podcast for example. Just LOOK at how many different platforms you can already listen to our weekly programme about the music business on. We couldn't make it simpler. Listen to the latest episode immediately.

SoundCloud launches new Pulse app for creators
SoundCloud has announced a new standalone Android app for creators called Pulse. Separate from the company's main mobile app, it aims to provide better control for content makers when managing accounts. Key features include the ability to reply to comments, see real-time stats, and share already uploaded sounds both publicly and privately.

SoundCloud Product Manager Jami Welch (and an artist himself, under the name Seams) told CMU: "SoundCloud Pulse is the product of countless feedback sessions from our community, who made a creator-focused app one of the most requested projects from our team".

He went on: "We've heard their call, and this first release will allow artists to monitor their stats, gain valuable feedback, and connect with their audience anytime, anywhere. It reaffirms our commitment to giving creators the tools they need to build and maintain a following online, and we'll be adding more to the capabilities of SoundCloud Pulse as soon as possible".

  Approved: Kelly Lee Owens
Kelly Lee Owens has released two singles this year - 'Lucid' and 'Uncertain' - and is currently working on her debut album, which is due for release next summer. But if you think you've known her name for longer than that, you probably recognise her from her work on Daniel Avery's 2013 album 'Drone Logic'.

Owens' solo work doesn't operate in an entirely different field from Avery's smart techno, but is far more restrained. She takes time to calmly explore the sounds she pulls together, allowing them to bleed nicely with her vocals in a way that feels exciting, fresh and thoroughly considered. Though that doesn't mean she's averse to a good old club banger, as her recent rework of Jenny Hval's 'Kingsize' shows.

You have one more chance to catch Owens live in 2015, when she supports Jaakko Eino Kalevi at Electrowerkz in Islington on 18 Nov. And as a bonus, you get to see Jaakko Eino Kalevi too. Don't miss it.

Here are the videos for 'Lucid' and 'Uncertain'.

School Of Seven Bells to release final album
The final School Of Seven Bells album will be released in February, it has been announced. Titled 'SVIIB', the album was recorded in 2012, before the duo's Benjamin Curtis was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma, from which he died last year.

His musical partner Alejandra Deheza said in a statement: "Benjamin and I wrote this record during a tour break in the summer of 2012. I can easily say that it was one of the most creative and inspired summers of our lives. What followed was the most tragic, soul shaking tidal wave that life could deliver, but even that wouldn't stop the vision for this record from being realised. This is a love letter from start to finish. It's the story of us starting from that first day we met in 2004, and that's the story of School Of Seven Bells".

Here's a (very) short preview of some music from the album.

Bloc Party to headline NME Awards Tour
Bloc Party will headline this year's NME Awards Tour With [But Not In] Austin, Texas. Supporting them will be Drenge, Rat Boy and Bugzy Malone.

Says NME Editor-in-chief Mike Williams: "The line-up for the NME Awards Tour 2016 With [But Not In, Don't Forget] Austin, Texas is amazing for UK music fans - where else next February could you see three of the most exciting, game-changing new artists around, as well as a bona fide festival headliner in such an intimate setting?"

Here is a list of both the tour dates and a selection of UK cities that couldn't or wouldn't plump up the sponsorship money for the NME's awards and tour:

29 Jan: Cardiff, Great Hall
30 Jan: Southampton, Guildhall
1 Feb: Bristol, Academy
2 Feb: Nottingham, Rock City
4 Feb: Newcastle, Academy
5 Feb: Glasgow, Barrowlands

• You thought they'd already decided which is the UK's best small venue, but no, we have to start the process all over again. The NME has announced the finalists for its annual prize.

Justin Bieber is the world's greatest human, says volunteer organisation
If you needed confirmation that Justin Bieber has reformed himself into the world's greatest human, then you need look no further than the news that he has been released from probation fifteen months into a two year sentence for throwing eggs at a house. Why? Because he is the world's greatest human. I thought I'd made that clear.

Although earlier this year it looked like Bieber was dragging his heals a bit in getting on with the community service he was also ordered to carry out, he has now completed it. And he has a nice letter from the Volunteers Of America organisation saying how great he is, coinciding nicely with the promotion of his new album 'Purpose'. Although I'm sure that this hasn't been timed for the purpose of promoting 'Purpose'. Sure of it, I am. So sure.

VOA's Donny Gomez wrote that it had been "a great help and a pleasure" to have Bieber at the Volunteers Of America Family Homeless Shelter and Gang Reduction & Youth Development Youth Center. "I truly believe he has learned his lesson and will be a productive member of society and a great human being", he wrote in the letter, obtained by TMZ.

Gomez slightly mis-spelled "greatest human being" there, but he also put "youth" into the name of one of his centres twice, so I think we can just make an assumption about what he actually meant.
