    Default The offspring selling their columbia catalogue

    Thoughts on this?

    I thought the general trend these days was for artists to buy back rights to their music in order to publish themselves via own labels. Are the offspring cashing out??

    Yeaah i dont think you understand.
    They have a label now (contract has run out for making new albums, but they still own the rights to the music released on columbia) why do they feel the need to sell it all of in one deal and never have the chance to make money of it again?

    Didnt dexter do the same with most of the nitro catalogue a few years ago?
    Sounds like a retirement plan to me.

    Hmmm, whatever that means, you could equally say that they don't have a label now, they released Coming for you on Time Bomb (will they release the whole album on it?) and they are selling (not yet done) Columbia's old records back to Sony Music or to Round Hill.

    Maybe because it's a simple solution for them and they can concentrate on other things and they will buy space ships instead of aeroplanes. Who knows if they could make more money if they weren't selling it and maybe they need cash now.

    I think so.

    Maybe, well, they are old as the hills, 10 albums and they are done or maybe it will free their hands...

    Time Bomb Recordings does not have distribution in the late 2000's it became a catalog label just like Nitro Records. I think if Dexter didn't sell it they would have used that to put Summer Nationals EP and Coming For You on iTunes

    35 Mio? A bargain
    Yeah, pretty much sounds like retirement and stuff.
    Turn the lights on.

    I don't think it's a bargain at all... 10 years for an investor to recuperate their investment...that's a long time.


    The only problem with this type of deal is the amount of shitty compilations whoever get's it will use to get their money back asap.Every couple of years expect a best of, greatest hits, rarities, etc. type of record for Xmas...also, their music will be used on soundtracks for crappy movies and stuff like that. These are the two major dangers.
    A ghost is all that's left, of everything we swore we never would forget. Tried to bleed the sickness, but we drained our hearts instead. We are...we are the dead.
