The collapse of V2 has hit The Mooney Suzuki especially hard - their album, Have Mercy, has been locked inside the record label's vaults:
[Sammy] James still remains confident Have Mercy will be released. "The world is going to hear the record in one way or another," he said. Although currently in talks with numerous labels about distribution deals, James has already conducted a little circulation of his own by adding Have Mercy tracks to the band's MySpace page. And confesses he may go all the way, "I could put the whole album up online...what are they going to do, sue me?"
The record industry suing an artist in the interests of an artist. You can picture it, can't you?
