' Once Bill Laswell's Axiom was a subdivision of Island Records. After Island was sold by Chris Blackwell - the bright teeth guy who went around earth in a balloon and nowadays sells space hops - to Polygram in 1989, AXIOM had to close down (it was not enough commercially interesting and too much "experimental" for Universal), even if more than 20 records had been released and that some of them sold well (Praxis) or had been highly awarded (Sonny Sharrock, Henry Threadgill) by jazz magazines. With Blackwell's desire to move away from music and more into the motion picture realm, Axiom has effectively shuttered operations. Attempts to buy the back catalog from Island/Universal have so far yielded no results.' firstname.lastname@example.org
