FAC’s Rowntree hails ‘On Air, On Sale’ initiative


Tags:

This weekend’s announcement that UMG and Sony are to start selling singles as soon as they’re played on the radio has been welcomed by Dave Rowntree, Blur’s drummer and a founder member of the Featured Artists Coalition. “This is something that FAC has been pushing for for years. It’s [the process of delaying on-sale dates] an analogue-age solution trying to be applied in the digital age and failing dismally,” he says. “All it does these days is encourage people to download it illegally, so we felt it was an untenable position for the record companies to be complaining about piracy but encourage it this way.”
