Pink Floyd says "we don’t need no distribution"

John Moe Aug 16, 2010

Online at least. The classic British rock band, beloved of both fans of complex orchestration and fans of smoking tons of pot, have removed some of their records from iTunes and Amazon’s MP3 store.

Their contract with EMI expired in June and no new deal has been signed. The band is also reportedly miffed at EMI for selling individual tracks instead of entire albums. (Frankly, I’m not sure anyone should listen to The Final Cut all the way through regardless).
