On another note, the severe lack of butter is no more the topic of the day in Norway, as the new issue is: Should the Fenêtre Records' Wikipedia entry stay on the Norwegian site or not? An amusing battle is in its (we hope) early stages here. The evil milk man with the clever disguise "Apple farmer", probably the very same guy responsible for the butter crisis, claims that the holy wiki shouldn't be infested by small independent labels as they just have a minor role in releasing music (and puts them kindly in the same category as catering deliverers (we wish!)), while our shiny white knight "KEN" argues that the indie labels indeed have an important cultural value.
