Not owned by, published by. There's quite a difference there. And it's not
really all of a sudden. The publishing credit on 'Electro-Soma' is
Warp/EMI, Kirk's been with Island as far back as 'Groovy, Laidback and
Nasty,' AFX has been with Chrysalis at least since the "On" singles,*
Seefeel have always been with Chrysalis to my knowledge... And there's
nothing really new about Warp artists being published by heavy hitters -
LFO's was Warp/Virgin for 'Frequencies.'

* Having noted that RDJ's publisher is Chrysalis and that's also the
credited publisher on the GAK single I'm now beginning to think that he's
the responsible party.
