Another Reason I'm Glad I Left FYE...

Blacklisting the Scissor Sisters: The New York disco-rock band the Scissor Sisters released a new album on Tuesday, "Ta-Dah," but it may not be necessarily coming to a store near you. The group -- whose single off the album, "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'," is No. 1 in the U.K. charts -- won't be appearing in any of the 1,100 stores owned by Trans World Entertainment, including FYE, Sam Goody, Strawberries, Wherehouse, Specs and Coconuts. The reason? Frontman Jake Shears complained at a record retailer's convention last month that Trans World's prices are too high: "I went to go buy the new Raconteurs album, and it was like $18.99." Trans World President and CEO Jim Litwak said Shears was exaggerating the price but never apologized, "so we made the decision not to carry the band's new release." (VH 1)
