Or spend any time on Myspace whatsoever if they're not a Musician?
How did Myspace fuck up mass success so quickly?
..what turned me off myspace was the spam actually- loads of irritating flyers clogging up the place. And it kept crashing. And my gf at the time saw my profile and wasn't too happy with some of the 'comments' I had on there. Mostly shite funk-rock bands trying to add me though.
I spend enough time trawling through top friends of bands I like and finding some really good music. I don't need awful emo/pop punk/pub rock bands wanting to be my friend.
but by that time I barely used it. I wonder if any people are like REALLY into funk rock like some people are into mathsrock and stuff..
Although I really don't like bands who feel inclined to send a bulletin out every half hour asking everyone to vote for them to support Bon Jovi. IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN.
I don't use myspace that much, but I have friends from far and wide who only use myspace. Plus I like looking at my profile, it's raaaad.
i haven't logged in for days
This was the dilemma - whether it's worth me bulleting the gig I'm putting on in a couple of weeks given I suspect no-one reads it.
It's ages since I've checked how many people check our Myspace. I assume not loads 'cos I never plug it anywhere but I guess it's possible some do.
Thankfully! I genuinely can't wait to not be promoting a gig every month - it's such a hassle.
Although I do seem to have agreed with the Good Ship I'll promote other stuff there in the future. Not every month though...
i'm asking now 'cause a) i'll forget otherwise, and b) it's an opportunity for you to jag
It's Tuesday July 8 and is at the Good Ship in Kilburn, as they always seems to be.
As I'm, ahem, sure you're next question would be what's the line-up I'll preempt it by saying us, Tim Ten Yen, Fuck Dress, Stage Sages and Niall Spooner-Harvey.
should be there
They're the only thing I got on myspace for these days. they're really handy for being reminded about gigs. I got to see Spectre Folk (aka Pete Nolan from Magik Markers) for free on Saturday because I checked my bulletins, when otherwise I'd have known nothing about it.
I normally get a few replies to bulletins I've sent out, and I like to read the ones I get from bands I like that I've added. If you really want people to see it though, post it as a blog or a new picture so it shows up in the updates section.
