SNP MP demands legislation to tackle ticket tout bots, wonders if Scottish government could lead
A Scottish Nationalist Party MP has written to Culture Secretary John Whittingdale and Home Secretary Theresa May to ask what action might now be taken with regard to secondary ticketing, in the wake of the publication last week of the government-commissioned review of the sector by Professor Michael Waterson.

As previously reported, Waterson didn't propose immediate new legislation to further regulate the resale of tickets to in-demand events, but he did seek clarity on rules introduced in last year's Consumer Rights Act, while urging voluntary initiatives by both primary and secondary ticketing firms to further protect consumers.

Alison Thewliss MP has also reportedly written to Scottish Secretary David Mundell for an update on conversations between the UK and Scottish governments on this issue. The CRA applies to the whole of the UK, though Thewliss's letter implies that Scottish ministers could consider introducing further regulation of ticket touting north of the border if the Conservative government fails to act UK-wide.

According to the Daily Record, the MP thinks that further regulation may be necessary to restrict the use by touts of special software - or "bots" - to hoover up large numbers of tickets to in-demand music and sporting events. Thewliss: "The government needs to urgently look at introducing legislation to prohibit the use of bots that are being used to buy up lots of tickets and make a fortune for ticket touts".

The Scottish tabloid adds that politicians in Edinburgh are awaiting a response from the UK government to Waterson's report, while concurrently investigating whether the further regulation of online ticket touting could fall under Scotland's devolved powers. A spokesman for the Scottish government said this weekend: "We are studying Professor Waterson's report, particularly to see if any aspects might fall within devolved competence".

Glasgow MP Thewliss commented on the secondary ticketing debate after the Daily Record ran a profile on one of the industrial touts named in submissions to Waterson's review, Andrew Newman, who runs a multi-million pound touting operation from Linlithgow.

Universal buys digital marketing agency from SFX
A successful sale of an SFX asset - hurrah! Universal Music has bought one of the flagging EDM firm's marketing agencies, the digitally-focused FameHouse which has worked on web-tastic initiatives for the likes of Eminem and Tiësto.

FameHouse was one of a number of marketing and branding agencies bought by SFX during its rampant acquisition spree back in the day. As previously reported, as part of its high profile bankruptcy SFX is now trying to sell off assets that are not part of its core festival business, though a sale of download store Beatport was put on hold, while a creditor last week kicked off about plans to sell ticketing set-up Flavorus.

But the FameHouse deal is seemingly going through pretty smoothly, with Universal paying $1 million, and taking on an additional $400,000 in liabilities, to acquire the business, according to paperwork filed with the US bankruptcy courts. The mega-major says that FameHouse will continue to be run by its founder Mike Fiebach and Chief Strategy Officer Eric Hahn, with CFO Boyd Muir overseeing the business from Universal's side.

Cherrytree allies with Warner's ADA on distribution
Cherrytree Records last week announced that - having ended its most recent alliance with Universal Music - it has now entered into a new worldwide partnership with Warner's label services business ADA. The publishing side of the Cherrytree company, meanwhile, will continue to work with Kobalt.

Said Cherrytree boss man Martin Kierszenbaum of life beyond his time working with Universal: "We started Cherrytree Records with the same artist-centric approach and independent spirit that have guided us through our first decade of extraordinary musical and cultural adventures. I'm proud to announce that our new, fully independent infrastructure - including ADA as our exclusive label distributor and Kobalt as our publishing administrator - corresponds exactly with our philosophy and gives us the resources and agility to serve our artists with even more flexibility and bespoke support".

From their side of the old negotiating table, ADA Worldwide President Eliah Seton said: "This partnership is a natural alignment of two companies who want to connect fans with the music they love. Artists are the core of ADA's business, so I am THRILLED that Cherrytree Records, a label with an impressive roster of signature artists and new hot acts, is entrusting us with their distribution and label services".

Pandora share price rallies amidst yet more sale speculation
Pandora's share price rallied somewhat last week, having previously slumped in the weeks following the departure of former CEO Brian McAndrews back in March and the return of co-founder Tim Westergren to the top job. Though that rally is likely down to new speculation that the personalised radio service could be sold.

As previously reported, a significant shareholder in the digital firm, Corvex Management, recently criticised the reappointment of Westergren to the CEO role, as well as comments he had made to the effect that it was "business as usual" at Pandora Towers. "We urge the company to immediately engage an independent investment bank ... to advise on a value maximisation process", said the hedge fund. That would include considering a sale.

There has been talk of a Pandora being bought and taken back into private ownership for sometime, of course, though management there prefer to chatter about plans to diversify the business into fully on-demand streaming and ticketing. Though since the Corvex statement there has been new speculation about possible bidders, with Verizon, Liberty Media and SiriusXM amongst those tipped, albeit without any real substance so far.

Like most streaming services, Pandora is still loss-making despite its massive userbase and $297 million in revenues during its most recent quarter. The company currently relies predominantly on ad sales, and many agree with management that new revenue streams are required to go into profit. Though on-demand streaming isn't yet profitable either, and ticketing is a sector dominated by a small number of major players.

Which is why, for existing shareholders, a sale is an attractive proposition, though whether any of the mooted bidders would really see a value in acquiring the loss-making concern remains to be seen. Nevertheless, Pandora's share price reached a three-month high in after hours trading on the back of that sale speculation this weekend, though that share price is still down on where it started the year, and less than a third of the value achieved during a February 2014 peak.

Spotify opens up in-house playlists to brands
How is Spotify ever going to turn a profit and free itself from relying on the financial input of other companies? That's the big question everyone was asking last week. Did you ask it? Of course you did, because everyone was asking that question last week. The answer, by the way, is through the financial input of other companies. Though advertisers rather than investors, see. Yes, the thing you've all been waiting for, branded playlists, are here. Woo!

As of now, brands can throw money at any of Spotify's 400+ in-house playlists. Perhaps surprisingly, this has never been possible before. Brands are able to have their name slapped on an existing playlist for as little as a week, or they can still work with Spotify to promote a playlist of their own if such a foolish plan appeals.

At the top level, an advertiser can, according to official blurb, ensure that "every listener tuning into your sponsored playlist will be immersed in your brand's message, across audio, video, and display". And doesn't that sound like something everyone would enjoy? "We'll work together to blow the doors off playlist usage during your sponsorship to amplify your brand messaging", adds Spotify, apparently with a straight face.

All of this is now fully available in the US, and in beta in the UK. By the way, we can't really offer anything like the door-blowing package Spotify can, but anyone who wants to give us money to continue updating our CMU Approved and/or weekly new music playlists is quite welcome to. Though you might have to do so secretly, so Spotify doesn't find out.

In other Spotify news, you can now play 30 second clips of Spotify tracks right in your Twitter timeline. What fun. No word yet on whether that blows any doors off.

CMU@TGE: Jeff Thompson on Off Axis
Look out for insights, advice and viewpoints dished out at this year's CMU Insights @ The Great Escape conference here in the CMU Daily throughout June. This week, a series of interviews conducted by CMU Business Editor Chris Cooke as part of this year's CMU:DIY programme, where the spotlight was on how new bands can go about building a fanbase through gigs and tours. Today Jeff Thompson on the Off Axis programme.

This year's CMU:DIY x TGE programme began with the mantra that new acts need to gig to build that all important fanbase, and at the outset that means putting on your own gigs to get the ball rolling. But once the ball is rolling locally, how can you start playing further afield?

It's that challenge that the Off Axis initiative has been set up to tackle. It's led by Jeff Thompson, co-founder of the UnConvention events for the grassroots music community. "We've done loads of panels about getting started in music", Thompson explains. "You know, getting your music online, social media, gathering emails, all that stuff, but one topic that would always come up was the challenge new bands face gigging beyond their home town".

He goes on: "When you start a band, your first audience is made up friends, family, work colleagues and well-wishers. And that's true of every band there's ever been. The trick, of course, is to do a show that's so good, some of those people will tell their friends and colleagues, 'you should come and see my mate's band', and then there's that tipping point as the band starts to get an actual fanbase".

But what next? "Lots of new acts find that, even when they've started doing great home town gigs with a decent audience, they still hit a glass ceiling. So, you have 200 people coming to your gigs in Manchester, say", he continues, picking his home city as an example. "But how do you grow beyond that? The old model was to wait for an A&R to find you, and invest some money, to get you tour support and marketing, so that your band's name would start to spread. But for most bands that's not really an option". And even less so in an age when record labels are generally signing new artists later into their careers.

"I worked with some bands from the Netherlands, who were brilliant bands worthy of an audience, and I wanted to get them a gig in Manchester. But I couldn't. And that's despite me being pretty well connected in the Manchester music community. It's not the fault of the local venues and promoters, because, after all, who's going to come and see some Dutch band they've never heard of, however good I think they may be?"

"Things like this kept coming up", he explains. "And even more locally than that. You've got all these bands who are doing well at home, but who can't play a gig 50 miles away. I had the problem myself with a local band I was working with, who were selling 650 tickets in advance for their Manchester shows. But I couldn't get them gigs in the next town down the road, because the local promoters just hadn't heard of them".

Which is where the idea for Off Axis came from, in part inspired by a similar scheme in Brazil, and by the old punk idea of gig swapping. "It's simple, you've got a hundred fans in your home town, another similar band has a hundred fans in their home town, so you each invite the other to play a gig at your local venue. You don't expect them to bring much of an audience - because they're 100 miles away from their hometown - but you know you can sell enough tickets to have a decent show".

Gig swapping isn't new but, says Thompson, the problem is that the basic concept isn't scalable. "You're limited to the bands you personally know elsewhere in the country who are playing to a similar crowd. And gig swaps can always be unpredictable, what happens if the other band don't get anyone along to the show, or they split up before they have chance to offer the reciprocal gig?"

Which is where Off Axis comes in. It's a platform via which bands around the UK can exchange gigs. But instead of a straight swap, participating acts earn credits whenever they host another Off Axis band. And those credits can be used to score a support slot with any other relevant outfit in the network when they are staging a local show.

"We've got bands in 67 towns and cities around the UK now", Thompson says. "Everyone joins the network on the understanding that they want to host bands from other cities, in return for opportunities to play elsewhere in the country and extend their fanbase. It means you don't need to already know another similar band in the places where you want to play, and you have a little more reassurance about the quality of the other gig".

Bands are vetted before being allowed into the network, principally to ensure that they are at the stage where they can actually command a decent attendance for hometown shows. In terms of the financial arrangement between gig swapping bands, Off Axis doesn't prescribe, though it does recommend a deal, mainly because, Thompson says, "I find bands are really bad at talking abut money".

Under the template deal, the host band covers their costs, the guest band gets their expenses, and then any monies left are split 60/40 to the headline act's favour. "The host band might say, why are we putting in all this effort in for just 60% of the profit", notes Thompson. "But that misses the point, the value you get from the show you score with your credits", ie a show in another town with your expenses covered where you get to play to an appropriate crowd, all of whom are potential members of that fanbase around which each artist's entire business will grow.

  Approved: The Erised
Formed by drum n bass producers Detail and Hidden Element with singer-songwriter Sonya Sukorukova, The Erised released their debut EP last year through Hospital Records offshoot Med School. Despite what all that might indicate, their sound leans more on pop and rock than drum n bass, but it's easy to see why Med School made an exception to their usual music policy in order to sign them.

Set to release their first album, 'Room 414', this week, the band have so far released two singles from the record. Just out, 'Even If' is a slow-paced, dark R&B track, that creeps and shudders. 'Liar', meanwhile, takes a different approach, with a more open sound, laced with drama thanks to stabs of synth and guitar.

Check out a brilliant live performance of 'Liar' here.

Elton John hopes "to be in Russia again and often" after meeting with Vladimir Putin falls through
Elton John didn't manage to sit down with Russian president Vladimir Putin while he was in the country for a performance yesterday, despite plans for such a meeting being pencilled in last September.

As you might remember, John said in an interview last year that he wanted to talk to Putin to discuss the increasingly concerning issues around LGBT rights - or a lack thereof - in Russia. Then John announced that he'd had a chat with Putin to arrange a meeting later in the year. Then it turned out that he'd actually be pranked by some Russian TV presenters. Then Putin did actually phone him and say that he'd love to have a chat in person.

Eight months later, that still hasn't happened. The latest opportunity arose last week, as John was in Moscow to perform at the Crocus City Hall last night. But it all fell through because of a scheduling conflict. "We were in correspondence a couple of weeks ago, because there was an agreement that, if their schedules allow, this meeting could take place", said Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov. "President Putin expressed readiness for this meeting. But this time, the meeting won't take place, unfortunately. Their schedules do not match up. But this does not mean that such a meeting won't take place next time".

Speaking on stage last night, John said: "As some of you may know, I hoped to meet with President Putin on this trip, and although it wasn't possible, I'm deeply grateful to him for inviting me to discuss some serious issues in Russia, including LGBT, and HIV and AIDS. I very much hope we will find time in the future to meet and discuss".

He also commented on the president's wife's new awareness campaign on HIV and AIDS, launched earlier this month, saying: "I would like to commend Mrs Svetlana Medvedeva for helping to raise national awareness about HIV and AIDS in recent weeks. This is so necessary. A dialogue of compassion it truly what is needed to end the AIDS epidemic".

"I hope to be in Russia again and often, and I want to be helpful in any way I can in helping to create an AIDS-free future for everyone who is infected in Russia", he continued. "I promise you that I will try my best for every single Russian with HIV and AIDS".

Ellie Goulding responds to criticism of comments on Donald Trump
Ellie Goulding has spoken about criticism she received regarding her recent negative comments about Donald Trump, throwing in a bit more negativity in the process by remarking: "I really don't understand why Trump is even running for president at all".

Some fans have reacted angrily to Trump-related tweets Goulding has been sending out since last year, one responding to a post last week, "Don't stick your nose into politics and make me not want to go to your concert in June", to which she replied, "Don't come please".

Speaking to the Daily Star, Goulding added: "I don't speak out about everything. But when I do I speak out about what I feel is important for young people to be aware of and I feel a bit of responsibly to do so as well. Most people agree with my opinions about Donald Trump but a couple of people on Twitter did not agree".

"A guy said he wouldn't come to my show if I didn't stop talking about Trump so I just told him, well maybe you shouldn't come then", she continued. "The way he put it made me think that I really don't understand why Trump is even running for president at all. It is something I feel strongly about and I don't think I should be criticised for speaking out".

Yes, it's quite often the people who say things like "shut up and just sing" who then shout loudest about their right to free speech. Conclusion: everyone should shut up. Including Trump, who should both shut up and go away. Oh God, do we really have to endure this until November?

"You can enjoy it in real life", Adele tells filming fan at gig
In the latest round of 'should cameras be allowed at live performances?', Adele enters in the red corner.

Rather than the usual annoying practice of people holding up bright phone camera screens in front of you face while you're trying to watch the actual show, the person Adele took umbrage with had an actual camera on a tripod. A tripod for fuck's sake!

"Can you stop filming me with a video camera because I'm really here in real life", said the singer from the stage. "You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera. Can you take your tripod down? This isn't a DVD, this is a real show. I'd really like you to enjoy my show because there's lots of people outside that couldn't come in".

Here, entirely ironically, is a fan-shot clip of that very exchange taking place.
