Flogging The Flag (For More)

You can't blame Scooch for wanting to milk their second fifteen minutes of fame and make some money out of it before 12 May, but the way they're going about it is ruffling a few feathers in the entertainment industry. Unsurprisingly, as soon as they won Making Your Mind Up, there was a clamour to book them for PAs at various clubs up and down the country. They hooked up with a management company who very quickly booked them a whole series of dates. All fine and dandy.

However, Scooch have since ditched the management company and signed up with another one, who are now telling the clubs who have booked the group that the fee has doubled and that they need to renegotiate the contract. This kind of PA, by its very topical nature, is done very quickly and agreements are reached in good faith before contracts are signed. Some venues have already advertised the gigs and are now uncertain whether or not Scooch will actually turn up. Their management company is not flavour of the month in clubbing land at the moment.
