is it wrong, that im incredibly happy revenue didnt win mobile act unsigned?
they really were fucking balls.
you can make using the thread title.
I avoid this program at all costs so I can't contribute further to this discussion.
I wish Revenue had won though.
The thought of those pricks being saddled with unmanageable debt as a result of signing the world's least favourable record deal of all time and then having to work double shifts in a Peterborough slaughterhouse for the next 40 years (blood pouring down their Topman fucking polo shirts) was really quite nice.
you don't know many bands signed to major labels?
split 5 ways for a 2 single and 1 album deal. not the best deal ever?
bile. best sums it up.
we all know it should have been Revenue
Body: but i love the fact that it was channel4 that actually decided to put on a music show where they find REAL artists rather than that leona bloody lewis xfactor shite.
Revenue are going to do well anyway :)
she really is as stupid as she sounded there
Revenue are about as "real" as Leon Thingy.
To be fair, they're not as dreadful as I expected them to be.
are an aural attrocity.
they're also a contender for worst band name ever?
have been around for a long time now and have some good songs.
Good luck to them.
But at least they can actually write a fucking song unlike the Northern Uproar tribute band.
Just a shame the contract is a potential carrer killer
a contract like that could destroy a career if its just one album they are signed up for. lots of exposure and more money than they would ever make without that deal.
they'll only be financially ruined if they aren't successful, but i'm sure they'll do fine. After all, Radio 1 playlisting is certainly on the cards (the Whiley connection) and i reckon most of their target audience see this as quite a reputable contest, just another arm of the T4 yoof music behemoth.
If they can get a "hit" single then most of the profile raising job is done. And if they've got that they're sorted
they weren't too bad - already had a shit shakesperian/renaissance 'theme' going on lyrically and most unfortunately visually too.
saw about two minutes of this show and had to switch off.
i don't know about this contract, but an advance is a loan from the record company, so the more money you get, the more you have to pay back before you can make any cash, basically.
