Gaga Label Signs Gays To Giga Deal

The Telegraph reports: ‘A gay men’s choir which performs hits by Neil Young and Radiohead has landed a lucrative record deal with the label behind Lady GaGa. The 30-strong Brighton & Hove Gay Men’s Chorus will release its debut album later this year after signing a deal said to be worth around $1.63 million. The choir is working on its repertoire of alternative rock songs in an effort to get away from cliched gay anthems.’ (In other words, no “I Am What I Am” or “I Will Survive.”) ‘The deal with Universal Records – also home to U2 – is thought to be the first major label contract for a gay men’s choir. Also among their repertoire are songs by David Bowie, Ian McCulloch of Echo And The Bunnymen, and The Enemy.’
