well obviously - them submitting to the whims of a corporation for  
which they are of minor importance at best does indeed seem a better  
fit for TG when you put it like that.

There are plenty of bands starting to find ways to do it themselves  
(including Coil for goodness sake) though

I guess that I am extremely naive in thinking that there might be any  
artistic integrity (and an accompanying desire to remain true to  
that) rather than a simple desire to maximise profit.
