«The Ivor Novello Awards recognise the best British songwriting and composing talent.

Now in their 6th decade they are judged and presented by the writing community, and past winners read like a Who’s who of British music.

“I remember coming here the very first time with my mates John, George and Ringo. Sitting back there just as little kids we were … and it was just fantastic to be part of this songwriting thing. It was always the greatest award – the greatest thing to get for songwriters. I think it still is.” Sir Paul McCartney

"The very fact that my peers have decided to honour me in this way is rather wonderful and I’m very humbled.” Sir John Tavener

“It is indeed a great honour to receive this particular award” John Barry

Q DAILY, May 22, 2008 :

«Radiohead’s In Rainbows was hailed the best album of the past year at the annual Ivor Novello Awards which recognise outstanding songwriting.
The band’s seventh album which was notoriously sold online for whatever fans wanted to pay when it was released in October 2007. The album was eventually given a physical release earlier this year when the band signed a deal with XL after quitting Parlophone, their label for the previous six releases.»

Porque não me surpreende isto?
Mas então, por que razão, teve Thom Yorke e os RadioHead, de lançar este álbum praticamente de forma gratuíta por sua conta e risco?
Porque razão, a ARTE e a qualidade não é aceite por quem "gere" o mercado?
Quem faz as regras do mercado afinal?
"Nada será como dantes"?
Foi este o princípio da revolução do mercado discográfico e do mercado em geral, afinal?
