I just received some evil news: Vice Magazine is starting its own record label. Not exactly an indie -- it's an imprint of the oh-so-hip Atlantic Records. Their first release will be the "genre-bending" (OOH THAT SOUNDS LIKE "GENDER-BENDING!" FAR OUT!), "most important album about being young since Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols" Original Pirate Material by the Streets, who are apparently worthier to the Vice staffers than those (their word) "fags" the Talking Heads. The header of the press release states "Oh Shit": a reference, perhaps, to those fags the Buzzcocks?
