Last fall, we griped about the fate of a U.K. rock-soul group called the Bees (a.k.a. A Band Of Bees), whose excellent albums have all been dumped into the marketplace with zilch support from its U.S. label, Astralwerks. Earlier this month, the group’s third effort, Octopus, was finally released here in the States–and once again, it was met with little or no fanfare. Come on, Astralwerks! What will it take to at least get these guys a few U.S. gigs? If it means having to say nice things about some Fatboy Slim/Air collaboration, we’re willing to do it.
