This isn't a JAG or is it leading to one.
that would just about give them enough time to play a song from the latest Mark McGuire solo record
there are usually about 50 people reading for every person posting.
and i've known people get 500 click-throughs to their blog from their boards (I linked to a post once and had about 1400 clicks but only about 30 replies...)
I guess it depends by what you consider 'popular' to be but there's every chance if the right thing is said or linked to and people nod approvingly, folks will find the time to investigate.
And there's a chance labels and managers and that will get in touch (I think Mike Diver started managing Esben shortly after they were mentioned on here, and then on Quietus and in Stool Pigeon)
Can you please give me the stats on people clicking the links to Underground Lovers youtube vids that I routinely post on these forums?
I'm hoping the band will send me a freebie of their recent retrospective double CD if I can show them that I'm responsible for a recent 40% increase in interest in the band.
In twentys, fivers or coins?
But the social board can increase the sales of a Boots Sandwich
remember whilst a forum appears to exist purely to those that post the are more people reading the threads then posting them. If a topic about a band gets lots of replies these people will be more likely to click on it, they like it, word spreads etc etc. This is true of any public forum by the way
we have 258 visitors via Pitchfork.com.
NME.com which reportedly gets 8million unique users a month linked to us in a few blog posts last month too: 257 visitors via NME.com
petshopboys.co.uk link to DiS = 1,172 visitors
...not that I'm sure any of this means anything...
as it is interactive where as Pitchfork preaches and rates stuff in decimals.
However Pitchfork must have a much much bigger readership so what it says goes.
Probably the same for Gorilla vs Bear
Which is a bit scary when they link to the video of a (relatively) unknown group formed of DiSers - eg Labyrinth Ear.
but also huge reach doesn't always mean a huge bump of people http://seaninsound.tumblr.com/post/18069562379/twitter-feedsll-eat-themselves-or-i-just-dont
DiS only has 30k or so (mostly because the UK, unlike the US, hasn't really done the whole 10 music twitters you should follow thing in places like New York Times) and when we post to smaller stuff it doesn't get anywhere near the same amount of clicks and retweets as say, Radiohead or Bloc Party or whatever.
So yes, but you'd have to be completely up your own arse to believe it is inevitable.
What about Esben & the Witch and Forest Swords and stuff like that?
but Sean, you're aiming for world domination, right? :D
