"That'll be all, ladies"

I love it when a press release cuts loose its moorings from reality and is seen floating out to sea. Parlophone's statement announcing that they're letting the reformed All Saints go says, "All Saints are excited about moving forward with their career and Parlophone wishes them the best of luck." (You can read that last bit with any intonation you like.) Hate to come on all "wimmin" about this, but this is another educational example of how women in the music business find it easier at the beginning of their careers and a good deal harder at the end. There is always a market for a nubile, attractive up and coming female but, unlike Take That, nobody wishes to see her make a comeback. Brutal.
