Biography

British independent label, Domino Records, is merely 12 years old, though ranks among other, much older indie labels like Alternative Tentacles or Dischord as far as output and number of influential artists are concerned (which is easily the most important aspects of a label). Like its respectable collegues, Domino was started in the basement with one desk and one telephone by one guy who had a vision. In this story, Laurence Bell is our hero, and his label's rise to success happens much quicker than those of his counterparts. Today Domino is regarded as one of the major independent labels with hugely successful branches in the UK and the US. It has been responsible for releasing some of the most revered and ground-breaking music in the last decade, and with the tenacity to always stay one step ahead of the game.

Domino Records was started by Bell after his stint at Fire Records. Like many disgruntled ex-employees, Bell understood his job, but also thought that there was a better way of doing it. So, he gathers up all of his funds and beliefs and sets out to create a label that ran the way he felt it should be done. With a potent combination of hustling, good relationships and luck, Bell was able to establish himself quickly within the British music scene in the early 90s as one of the few labels that was not completely obsessed with Brit-Pop. In fact, Domino began by liscensing music from American artists rather than British ones. While everyone else was obsessed with the redundant sounds of mainstream radio, Bell was releasing music from Lou Barlow's Sebadoh outfit, Royal Trux and Will Oldham. As far as labels are concerned, success was almost instantaneous with an excessive amount of attention coming from both sides of the Atlantic. Before being pigeonholed as a British label that only released American music, Bell was quick to sign British acts like Clinic, The Pastels and Hood, who all are still making plenty of noise today. The real genius of Domino was the ability to release music from every part of the spectrum and not just specializing in one genre (which some say is the secret to creating a successful label). Bell's ability to hear quality music no matter how it was being made is the sole reason that Domino Records is the success that it is today.

Today Domino continues to put out the most talked about music in the game. Their income increased exponentially with the release of Franz Ferdinand's debut album. They are also home to Four Tet, one of the electronic's scene most promising and prolific artists to date. This is all while keeping to the original vision and ethos originally created by Bell. Domino Records is one of the few labels that is far reaching in both popularity and artistic freedom.

Final Fantasy

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Mayor Domino is a minor, non-playable character in Final Fantasy VII.

He is the mayor of Midgar, but is mayor in name only as all the governmental power is held by Shinra. Mayor Domino is a mere figurehead with no governmental power at all. He is visibly unsatisfied with is job, and doesn't even do so much as question the identity of Cloud's group when they enter his office. He makes his only appearance on the 62nd floor of Shinra Headquarters and forces the player to guess the word he's thinking in order to get his keycard. If the player guesses correctly on the first try, he will give an Elemental Materia along with the keycard.

Chronological and political information
Affiliation

Galactic Republic

Domino was an alias that was used by a member of the Galactic Senate during the time of the Galactic Republic.

Biography

Domino was a senator in the Galactic Senate and planned to assassinate all the other members of the senate and bring about a revolution. Under the alias of "Domino", over the course of a few months, the senator hired a number of criminals and kidnappers, who were operating in the Outer Rim Territories. They were organized into a number of different cells and Domino tasked them with planning the assassinations of hundreds of different senators who were going to be away from Coruscant on a particular date.

The senator's aide began to suspect that the senator was having dealings with Domino, not realizing that they were the same person. The aide told this to a group of agents who working for the Senate Guard Bail Falcris and the agents began investigating the senator. Domino responded by recalling Falcris and placing bureaucratic obstacles in the way of the investigation.

A Sullustan slicer who worked for Domino contacted the agents and from a computer core that the Sullustan possessed, the agents learned about the assassination plans. They went to warn the senator about them, but soon worked out that the senator was Domino. The senator then informed the agents that a capital ship was going to attack the Senate Hall on Coruscant during a Senate meeting, while revolutionary forces would rise up and kill any senators that survived.
