How to become Famous in less than 2 weeks….

I submit for your approval a signed underground band that embraced a model and became mainstream overnight. Note: I did not say famous, I said mainstream, big difference. Where are they now? They are underground again, but still famous.

Have you ever wondered why they only had one radio single? Have you ever wondered how that song did not sound like anything they have written? Simple, their label wanted them to be on the radio to promote their upcoming US tour. Their only tour people remember in an almost 15 year-long career.

The song is a perfect model for what belongs on the radio: (continue reading…)

Sharing the Hate, Spreading the Pain: On Being Used

by on Jun.21, 2007, under Articles, Sharing the Hate

It must be the summer season. Why you ask? I mean, five independent bands in four cities have already approached me in the past two weeks and bragged that they get to open for Livelalawarpfestmess.

When band number 6 comes around, I’m going to have Wolf or Norman throw them through a concrete wall. If I am lucky, this toss happens before their set. That way I won’t have to suffer through it. The sound guy will thank me later. Trust me, he always does when I throw a band through a concrete wall.

Are you trying to impress me with your skill at gathering votes? Do 30,000 votes mean shit to me when only 30 people show up to see you play live? I can write a computer program to get you 20 million votes if you want. I know, I’ve done it before.

Do 30,000 votes mean you know how to play your instruments on stage? Do 30,000 votes mean you have a stage show, or a panel of music judges and A&R reps watched you play and chose you? Hell, have you even met 30,000 people in your life? Have you met an A&R rep or scout in your life? Nope, then what does that tell me? (continue reading…)
