It's not that unusual for a record company to own the publishing rights to
a song; Warp makes sense, and EMI's probably along for the ride as they're
one of the largest (if not *the* largest) music publishing company in the UK.

This is a puzzler - I would have picked either Virgin (from the past Cab
deal) or Instinct in the US. Maybe Island is really hopping on this stuff
and has signed Kirk? What label is his new solo album on?
> 3) The Seefeel and Polygon Window tracks are owned by Chrysalis

Chrysalis UK had some sort of deal w/ Too Pure at one point, I think.
However, this doesn't explain why Warp/EMI isn't publishing it...

BTW, Brian: Did you get the ltd. ed. on WT!?
