Scissor Sisters Banned From Us Stores

Flamboyant New York group SCISSOR SISTERS have seen their latest album banned from music stores in the US after frontman JAKE SHEARS slammed their pricing policy. Shears refuses to apologise for comments he made about CD prices at US record chain FYE at an industry convention recently. The singer was invited to speak to record retailers but had no idea what to talk about until he ventured into a FYE store to buy the new RACONTEURS album hours before - and was charged $20 (GBP11). He then used his speech at the National Association of Recording Merchandisers convention to berate FYE bosses for their high prices and now the chain, run by Trans World, has pulled copies of new record TA-DAH from more than 800 American shops. It was being sold in the stores with a $28.99 (GBP16.10) price tag. Trans World president JIM LITWAK tells MTV the company is still waiting for an apology from the band. However, their manager NEIL HARRIS insists, "We're not trying to start a war or inflame anyone, but there's a lot of love out there for the Scissor Sisters and we seem to be going in the right direction without Trans World's help."
