HELLO MUDDA...: An interesting move from Peter Gabriel and Brian Eno, who are launching a new Musicians' Union this Monday called Mudda (the Magnificent Union of Digitally Downloading Artists) - shouldn't the artists be uploading rather than downloading? - in an attempt to try and create an official representative body which has a bit of a grasp on the way the music world is now. He's chosen Davos to launch his brave new world, and it should be kind of interesting - the traditionalist Musician's Union has always regarded machines with a sort of paralysed fear; it'll be interesting to see what the Mudda relationship with the Majors will be.
