Badly Drawn Boy Sues Former Record Label

Badly Drawn Boy is suing his former record label XL over unpaid royalties. Damon Gough says he is owed £200,000 for his 'About A Boy' soundtrack of 2002 and £39,800 for the recent 'One Plus One Is One' album.

XL says it has had to withhold the payments on 'About A Boy' as it needs to recoup the advance payment they made to the film's producers Working Title for the rights to release its soundtrack.

Gough is now signed to EMI.
