About a year ago, we reported on the formation of the Featured Artists Coalition (FAC), a British musicians' advocacy group that includes members of Radiohead, Blur, and Pink Floyd. In a mission statement, the group described its position thus: "We want all artists to have more control of their music and a much fairer share of the profits it generates in the digital age."#link >>>
But the group's stance on file-sharing has lately sparked some controversy in the British music community. In particular, the group has found a vocal detractor in British pop siren Lily Allen.
Did you use any computers?
NG: We never used computers. They’re too dangerous. We’ve done music since we were children and we know how to play pretty well, so we don’t need computers. A lot of people think we are an electronic band. But it’s always been us playing live. We love to play. We do use a lot of old synthesizers and stuff like that.
