that Radiohead have been pointedly left off of the influences list...
That is actually hilarious. :D
I'm going to start a band called Seymour
i love bands like this,
they probably think they're heading for a record contract pretty soon.
it says their signed/
Four Day Hombre are also in their influences. (!)
What's worse - they they won't, or that they might?
It depends how you use it. I've had a decent number of plays through Myspace and got some new fans but ultimately it only helps in conjunction with gigging or radio play or something.
It is good to have somewhere where people can check you out and hear their songs (and I find people to be far likelier to check my Myspace than my website) but I don't believe it does that much for you in getting new fans in itself.
I tend not to link to it too often on here 'cos I don't wanna look like I'm self-promoting all the time (although I am, of course!)
I'm very involved with the UK antifolk scene so I guess it's antifolk. I've never really been sure what antifolk means though, although I like most of the other bands involved with the UK antifolk scene so I assume it's something I should be pleased to be involved with.
But I'm in London. So long as you're (barely) competent you can find places to play!
berbatov? I'm from Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, which was pretty much the same for years - my bands always had to get gigs in Cambridge, which is 30 miles away, 'cause all the pubs in Bury wanted pub rock covers bands and NOTHING ELSE.
I'm at www.myspace.com/openmouthmusic, if you're interested. :-)
I was in a small village about 10 miles away from Bristol (and I don't think even the Bristol gig scene wasn't anything like what is now) and it was almost impossible to play locally.
I never really played live 'til I made it to London.
Mainly because I've now had six labels contact me through it and I didnt even have to do anything myself except put the songs online!
with Four Day Hombre ?
