Last week we told you about the Sydney reggae band that took to Facebook to denounce Fairfax after being asked to play for free at The Age's highly successful Night Noodle Markets. Fairfax was keen to hose down the PR fire -- but it has published an article that has reignited the controversy.

A Fairfax spokesman told Crikey last week that the company understood where the band was coming from. "We work with the artist community in a range of ways -- including paid and promotional arrangements -- but clearly we need to look at how we are engaging with everyone."
