worth a go?
Tips and stories would be nice if anyone has any?
and probably rewarding. as such.
current work situation
support from family and friends
how much money you have
bands see and those that have set their own label seemed to have done ok. More so than just having the title of 'unsigned'. (i hate that word as well)
I've always fantasised about winning the lottery and setting up an awsome record label.
the money could be there (would take three of us mind you and prob not a hell of a lot of cash) but its the time thing I'm worried about as well. I guess it would eat up all your spare hours?
if they are willing to put the hard work into settingf up a lable they also probably push the band really hard (practice lots - put the word out loads - get and play a lot of gigs) so it may be more to do with the work ethic aspect than having set up their own lable persay
I remember last year we played with a certain band on the same bill. I remember thinking to myself that they were pretty shit but next thing I know they've set up their own label been in most music press (inc on here), played SXSW and loads more.
I think they really worked hard tho.
a label to put out their own material and does fairly well, there are 99 that don't...
it's not worth listening to.
that's my motto.
Unless you mean monetary rewards in which case it's not rewarding either. :D
rewarding in an esoteric sense
a big one
doesn't sound to great.
and you dont have to lsiten to heart fm, which is nice.
let's all work for someone else instead.
