My Bloody Valentine going self-release route for new album
Apparently the term "do a Radiohead" has now entered the English language, meaning a band releasing a new album by itself. That's how Billboard describes plans for My Bloody Valentine to handle the release of its long-anticipated new album on its own. The industry insider publication quotes band manager Vinita Joshi as saying, "The plan is that they will release the album themselves via the Internet, but there will also probably be a vinyl release." Cheapskates beware, though. Joshi says that MBV probably won't follow in Radiohead's footsteps with a pay-as-you-please plan.
