In a blaze of twitter glory, Nigel Godrich made a statement by explaining why his record Ultraista has been pulled from the Spotify catalog, along with the Atoms For Peace record Amok and Thom Yorke's record Eraser.

Here is the twitter rant (via @nigelgod):

Wow. Nigel lays it right out in the open. NEWSFLASH: Spotify and major record labels are killing musicians by selling music for far less than it's worth and not paying the people who actually make the music. We heard a very similar story a couple weeks ago from Pink Floyd and Cracker talking about Pandora radio.

After getting a lot of response, Godrich did another series of tweets to further clarify his position:

At the time of this publication, the Radiohead catalog remained available on Spotify - including their most recent album which was self-released: King of Limbs.
