Morrissey lashed out this week at the state
of the charts. Particularly how the
singles chart is now dominated by downloads.
He doesn't know the half of it. There's a
huge resurgence of attempted chart fixing
going on by most of the labels, as its
suddenly cheap and relatively easy to
improve your act's position by buying up
downloads. And we're sure he didn't know
that even his own label, Sanctuary, hoped
to manipulate the chart when he released
the first single off his new album by
discussing the idea of hiring someone
to purchase multiple digital copies."
