Musicians’ rights activist David Lowery takes on the streaming giant.
Lowery, the frontman of Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven, has filed a class action lawsuit seeking at least $150 million in damages against Spotify. The lawsuit, filed on December 28 in the Central District Court of California, alleges that the company knowingly, willingly and unlawfully reproduces and distributes copyrighted compositions without mechanical licenses.
The lawsuit claims that Spotify has “publicly” admitted its failure to obtain proper licenses for some music, creating “substantial harm and injury to the copyright holders, and [diminishing the integrity of the works.” Sources say that Spotify has a reserve fund, estimated at $17 to $25 million, to pay royalties for such pending and unmatched music.
Previously, reports surfaced claiming that Spotify has told music executives that it might allow some artists to release albums only to paid subscribers, temporarily withholding the music from free users. [via Billboard]

The drummer for the legendary 2 tone ska band was 62.
John Bradbury, drummer for highly influential ska band the Specials has died. The news was first shared via the band's Twitter page and was later confirmed by his family. Bradbury joined the band in 1979 following the departure of original drummer Silverton Hutchinson and played on their iconic self-titled debut that same year. He continued with the band through their reformation as the Special AKA until their disbandment in 1984. He then rejoined during their reunion in 2008 and continued to play until his passing. There is currently no cause of death, but you can read a statement from his family below.
It is with deepest regret that we have to announce the very sad news that our much loved husband and father John ‘Brad’ Bradbury passed away on Monday the 28th of December.
Brad’s drumming was the powerhouse behind The Specials and it was seen as a key part to the Two Tone sound. He was much respected in the world of drumming and his style of reggae and ska was seen as genuinely ground breaking when The Specials first hit the charts in 1979.
He was an integral part of The Specials reforming in 2008 and toured with them extensively up to the present day. His contribution to the world of music can not be understated and he will much missed by family, friends and fans alike. It is the family’s sincerest wish that they are allowed the time to remember him privately.

The original musique concrète?
German engineer Ricardo Kocadag has developed what we're pretty sure is the world's first concrete record, cut with Rolling Stones' '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction',
Coming at it from an engineering rather than a musical point of view, the playable slab is made of a special “ultra high performance concrete” being developed for use on bridges, and high-rise buildings in order to exhibit just how exact and fine the new "super-concrete" material is.
At 6mm thickness, the concrete record doesn't sound half bad and plays on a regular turntable, the results of which you can hear below. [via Electronic Beats]
German speakers can hear an interview with Kocadag about the concrete record on BLN.FM radio.

Radar Radio made its debut on the airwaves around 14 months ago, and it shows no signs of slowing down.
From scoring residences from the likes of Ikonika, Girl Unit and Smutlee to enjoying fast-growing popularity on its SoundCloud account (before it sadly fell victim to stringent copyright infringement software), the station has outdone itself in not only extending its reach but living out its mission statement to be “The Next Generation of Radio”. An ever-changing roster of DJ talent and an inclusive musical vision have been some of the hallmarks behind Radar’s growth, and while it may still be a radio station in its infancy, its inaugural year has been one of the biggest success stories for electronic music in recent memory.
A couple of months on from the station's Just Jam first birthday broadcast and as we approach the start of a new year, we asked station founder Ollie and the rest of his colleagues to reflect on the past year and talk us through their personal favourite shows from that time.
