"This is my beautiful show and everything is shot in slo-motion," the refrain to Marilyn Manson's new single, "Slo-mo-tion" is quite literally realized in the song's new video, as Manson is captured in slow motion doing a variety of things, from shooting a gun to spitting a neon colored substance out of his mouth.
Founded in 1986 and originally specializing in folk music, Cooking Vinyl has grown to become one of Europe’s leading indies generating over $16.2 million in revenue in 2009. This year, with Marilyn Manson, the Cult, the Cranberries and others releasing albums, label founder Martin Goldschmidt says this year they’ll match that amount. In a .Biz Q&A, Schmidt discussed how Interscope "dropped the ball" with Manson, the perils of the Universal-EMI acquisition and why it's a great time to be Indie.
