“What you have heard on the radio station so far, the contribution of my album is very much the more beige, saccharine elements to what I have made.”
“The reason for that is because the people in control of the radio stations, the people that are in control of the record companies, are too scared to put themselves on the line in case someone gets offended. If I said to my record company, ‘I really want to go with this song,’ they would say, ‘Sure, here is £5 for the video’.”
