Latest stats from the BPI show that 12.9% of global record sales are held by British artists.

Remember this when Brexit wrecks it.


  • Anon says:

    What is it about Brexit that would mean the rest of the world couldn’t buy a record by a British artist? Brexit will have no impact on this at all.

    • Allen says:

      Rubbish! How could the Beatles, the Stones and their contemporaries have succeeded without the EU?

      Oh, hang on ……

    • The Irish Border says:

      You forgot about the Elephant in the room, the Irish border, 310 miles long, 208 crossing points more than the entire EU. An insolvable conundrum, with luck the UK government will implode and Brexit will be mothballed.

  • Barry Guerrero says:

    They don’t even know what Brexit is yet. They’d prefer to panic and maybe blame Trump too. Here’s an idea: just cancel the whole thing. Trump would.
