Anyone heard about this? I've not seen it mentioned here or many other places - am only really aware of it through a few bands I know being involved.
Basically, the people behind the RATM No 1 campaign set up a process to select 40 unsigned bands and run a campaign to get as many of them into the charts as possible. Whether they will actually get into the charts remains to be seen, but I think the biggest benefit will be getting some of these bands the exposure they deserve. Over 500 bands were cut down to 40 through public voting and panel selection (Huw Stephens, Emily Eavis). The full info is here http://stormthecharts.wordpress.com/
Anyway, wanted to give a shout out for a couple of bands that sit amongst my favourites and would encourage you to give them a listen, and if you enjoy what you hear help them out by spending 49p on Amazon - a bargain if you ask me!!
Revere - We Won't Be Here Tomorrow
Gabby Young & Other Animals - We're All In This Together
Would be interested to know what people think of the songs, and if you do end up buying thanks very much for reading this and giving them a go :-)
