SO LONG, THEN...: Saturday's business pages of the Guardian were reporting that a whole slew of second-string acts on EMI labels will be among the 1,000 lay-offs announced this week. Anyone's guess who can go - if Carey gets shipped off, it's clear the axe could swing wholesale. But I'd imagine Williams and Minogue will sleep soundly. Lousie, perhaps (though she's been in abeyance for ages, hasn't she?). Rico, Spiller, Ed Harcourt, MoSoildGold and Relish are probably starting to circle adverts in the Guardian from the Chrysalis line-up. Over at Food, Matthew Jay and Idlewild should both be safe, if Food itself can remain in the new, tightened belt world of EMI. Over at Virgin, you've got to fancy Blue for being sent back to work McDonalds. Apparently, they're webcasting a statement (EMI, Blue) at their website this week. Roll up and place your bets now...
EMI group - bye bye bands...
