Agent Says Kids From 'Wall' Owed Royalties

Fri Nov 26, 2:31 PM ET Entertainment - AP

LONDON - Members of the children's chorus who sang on Pink Floyd's anti-authoritarian 1979 hit "Another Brick in the Wall" are owed thousands in payment, a royalties agent said Friday.

Peter Rowan said he was representing one of the group, Peter Thorpe, in a bid for unpaid royalties. Rowan said he hoped other members of the group would join the claim for royalties from a fund set up to compensate session musicians.

Two dozen students from Islington Green School in north London sang on the chart-topping track from the album "The Wall," which was recorded at a nearby studio in 1979.

The song attracted controversy for the chorus sung by the children: "We don't need no education/We don't need no thought control/No dark sarcasm in the classroom/Teachers, leave them kids alone."

"It was seen as being quite improper, and I think it was raised in Parliament that children should have been used for this," said the school's current head teacher, Trevor Averre-Beeson.

"The Wall" has sold more than 23 million copies and is the third best-selling album of all time, according to the Recording Industry Association of America (news - web sites).

The school received a platinum disc and 1,000 pounds in return for the children's efforts, but the pupils were not paid.

Rowan said the singers could claim money from a fund established in 1997 to give session musicians a percentage of royalties from broadcasts.

"It's a legal right and the money is building up," Rowan said.

"There's probably around 5,000 or 6,000 pounds there already, so they would get a few hundred each."

Children make much better prostitutes than musicians.

That's because you don't know what the hell you're talking about. Those kids were asked to come into Britannia Row studios and sing background vocals that might possibly appear on a PF record. Everyone involved agreed that the vocalists from Islington Green School could have future studio time in return. Nothing else was promised. When the album came out and the song became a hit, The Floyd gave a shit-load of $$ to the school and gave every kid who sang an autographed copy of the album. You show me a contractual obligation that those kids were cheated out of money...

Something tells me that there is probably a lawyer behind this trying to hit the lottery. After 20+ years all of sudden these kids need cash?

They should be proud to get the free beers at the pub when they tell their chums that they sang on the song.

Plus, how would David Gillmor buy a football team if he has to pay the settlement? I'd bet he'd at least spend the entire salary cap on player salaries though.
