When bands don't have websites or any history...


Recommended Posts

When submitting cds it asks for information on the bands (such as websites) if they are not already on the main site.

 

What's the deal when submitting more obscure stuff?

Bands from late 80's early 90's rarely have websites and some are damn near impossible to find any history or infomation on... yet are definitely suitable to this site.

 

For example, I just submitted some stuff by aussie bands such as Firepower, Gas, Eclipse - who are all 100% HH eligible but I cannot for the life of me find any online content on these bands. What happens there - will they be rejected, accpeted?

If there's no info out there to verify what style of music a band plays, nor any MP3s available online anywhere, I'll most likely ask you for an MP3 sample or two of the band before adding them to the database. Others who submit CDs on a regular basis will verify that this is normal; the submissions aren't just automatically rejected.

No worries, cos I'm guessing that a lot of the aussie indies I've been submitting of late may be a little more on the obscure side (not obscure in style, but obscure as in not commonly known).

 

If you need any samples, style comments on these, just let me know.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
