Music is the only language in which you cannot say a mean or sarcastic,do you like it, too?


ugg store is dead on, as always. But I don't get the clever solution. If someone wants to use a Squeeze song, don't they retain the option of using one of initially recorded ones, and continuing to avoid Difford and Tilbrook? And wouldn't D&T's marginal control have increased if they instead composed and released superior new material that wasn't similar to material outside their control?

I would imagine that Difford and Tilbrook plan to undersell the owners of the original recordings. Otherwise, as you say, there's little point in the thing, unless perhaps, I suppose, Difford and Tilbrook are willing to sell the new recordings for uses that the owners of the original recordings would not. (That seems quite unlikely, though.)

Difford and Tilbrook do continue to compose and release new material, but like most acts "past their prime," they have little chance of that material's ever achieving anything like the popularity of the material from their higher-flying, younger years, even if it is musically superior.
