As an elitist my first, second and third reaction was a resounding no.
But then after a little self reflection and attesting that I don't have to have a hard drive of beeps, bits and squeals made it OK.
As mentioned clearly noting the format is key.
I believe we have some "Band Made CDR's" onsite as well, but as stated those are official releases and no other format.
While we are going down the rabbit whole, why not include cassette's? Maybe even vinyl? But the caveat would be that the release fits the parameters of the site and no other format exists, cuz at the end of the day its getting the cool bands seen and known to the elite crowd that resides herein.
And while Young & Fabulous does the most excellent TPOH inspired 1980's glam fused rock n roll, the Upper Crust go old old old school and take it back to the 1880's, Once More Into the Breeches, baby.
Both band are far to witty with not only their tongues but yours and your girlfriends jabbed into their cheek
Washington State has a boatload of glam bands for glamier than the likes of Heart, no disputing MLB, cuz Landrew the love god is well god.
Show N Tell
Alice N Chains (pre Facelift)
Heck even the new (er) Prophets of Addiction
...to name a few, plenty more.
Sounds like a brilliant marketing campaign "Who needs lawsuits, when you got Slurpees!"
I for one am glad that particular story had an uplifting and not tragic end, minus the profiling of course.
I tell you its addictive, especially if you get some like minded folks talking about this evolution or this mythical or or or. Fortunately my son still buys too many Pokemon cards and we play the actual card game regularly, that my friends is the best thing ever, when it comes to being a parent, sharing something special with your kids.
