Britain's HMV Faces the Music As Retailer Calls In Administrators


According to Reuters, Music retailer HMV said it was calling in the administrators, blaming a worsening market for CDs and DVDs, as it becomes the latest victim of brutal trading conditions in Britain’s retail sector. HMV said that the accounting firm KPMG has been named as the administrator and intends to keep the business running while it seeks a potential buyer. The retailer, one of Britain’s best-known high street stores, went into administration in 2013 after being hit by competition from online rivals and music streaming services.

  • Wu-Tang Clan Documentary Is So Epic RZA Calls It The 'Bible' Of The Band

    Twenty-five years ago nine MCs known as Wu-Tang Clan instantly became a sensation as their rugged style began to circulate through the rap scene. The group's first album, 1993's "Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)," would go down as one of the greatest debuts in the history of hip-hop. It not only launched the group into legendary status, but, as the years past, gave many of the members individual success as solo artists. Now the Wu is finally willing to tell its story. Showtime's four-part documentary, "Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men" is an exhaustive look at the members' beginnings trying to stay out of jail, followed by international stardom. The group's rise was systematically orchestrated by its de facto leader, RZA, who not only produced the albums but also made the group a multi-million-dollar brand. And like every epic story, there's also the bad side. Inner turmoil within the band and the death of outlandish member Ol' Dirty Bastard caused years to pass without any new Wu-Tang music. In fact, it's a telling of the Wu-Tang that RZA always envisioned. 
 "The idea was a definitive documentary, which I told Sacha (Jenkins) is the bible," RZA told Business Insider. "And when it comes to archival, this movie should get an award. I don't know how they got it all."
