True Panther Strikes a Blow For Indie Labels Everywhere

True Panther Strikes a Blow For Indie Labels Everywhere

The above twitpic is happily accompanied, on Twitter, by True Panther's take on the situation: "ATTN: Major labels- our records aren't for sale. Glad you like the music though!" One would have to be an exceptionally buffoonish A&R to send such a nakedly stupid email, but then again, it's not just because of illegal downloading that the major label record industry currently finds itself in such dire straits. Credit to Beggars subsidiary and Matador junior label True Panther--home to Girls, Tanlines, Lemonade, and of course, as Columbia just discovered, Delorean--for clowning this particular buffoonish A&R in such an artful way. Matador probably feels like a pretty proud parent today. [True Panther]
