I had heard that someone at the label (Jason maybe?) decided to spend close to $5 or $6 per unit to break this band. If that's the case then I imagine that Guy Hands decided that the project wasn't profitable enough to keep around.

Crazy. I thought that single was solid, but really didn't think it had the legs to get as many adds as it did...I was surprised. I figured someone's wallet must've taken a hit to get it to where it got. I also figured that 1.1mil sold would be more than enough to put the label in the black.

How the hell can someone be stupid enough to pour so much money into a band that 1.1mil sold isn't profittable (especially nowadays)?

This is awesome. We can probably except more of a rock album than a pop rock album.

My intuition tells me they spent the money to develop the band not knowing (or anticipating) that their parent company EMI would soon be taken private and Guy Hands would start a massive creative and personnel restructuring.

That - coupled with a keyman clause could have proven too expensive to renegotiate to keep the band.

yup, that's why Jason Flom's dumb ass is on his way out. Pumping millions into a mediocre band like this, while watching a band like The Starting Line flounder.

Howard Benson producing = tailored for modern rock radio (which, no one listens to anymore).

Strongly disagree with this statement...

ok, we get that some like howard benson and some don't... whatevs.

the point here is: RED JUMPSUIT APPARATUS (which should have been titled, probably worst band you'll ever subject your ears/eyes to) has their own label. and they're planning on signing someone.

let's just let that sink in for a second............................. ........................


the band they sign, will probably get little respect from anyone and RJA, i'm assuming here, will probably try to clone themselves.

no thanks, i'll pass on alllll of this.

Very surprised they're starting their own label. But I'd love if it became a Bad Boy/Deathrow thing with them and Decaydance.
