OK Go on leaving Capitol

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Major labels are facing a difficult future. The conditions we were signed under have passed, and we were likely to wind up funding ourselves anyway. I just didn’t think we were going to be able to do this so quickly. I don’t feel bilious about it. They’re not bad people at Capitol. They’re really doing us a favor… All the people we worked with at the label wanted to see our videos embeddable. They aren’t morons… We’re one of the small percentage of bands that are actually fiscally solvent. The issue is just start-up capital; the business is already running well. A larger business like Capitol needs to aggregate its risk, and while we’re sorry not to have access to their pockets, they were only really available to the biggest acts anyways, and we’re not Coldplay.” —OK Go’s Damian Kulash, interviewed by the L.A. TimesAugust Brown for its Pop & Hiss blog. (3/12a)
