According to Maggie Veil, KRS vice president of A&R, some bands will move over to KRS, while others will explore their freedom. "Were trying to figure out what were going to do. Were calming down a little bit and not putting out so many records. Wed like to focus on our bands more, said Veil, hinting at the overwhelming 40-plus records the label issued this year. This news follows the report that KRS founder Slim Moon is leaving Olympia for the New York offices of Nonesuch Records, where hell work in A&R.
