Poison pill for EMI

You spend the best years of your life combing, perming, sparying and perming some more, and what sort of reward do you get?

Not enough, it turns out: Poison reckon Capitol-EMI owe them money.

They've launched a lawsuit which says not only do they believe they got diddled out of miscalculated figures on sales and tax, but they don't even know how much they got diddled out of, as attempts to audit the figures were blocked by the labels.

It does raise the question how they can be sure the losses are large enough to justify an expensive lawsuit, but we'll bet their legal team has already provided a convincing answer to that one.
