Unsigned bands

Unsigned bands

It has always difficult for unsigned bands to get noticed, and although there are of lot of things that are more positive in the music industry today, it is still very hard for them. In the 1960’s, unlike today, there were so many places for unsigned bands to play. However, when bands did eventually get signed they would be taken advantage of by some unscrupulous manager or record label. Today, of course, unsigned bands have the advantage of the internet, Facebook, viral campaigns, cheaper recording equipment etc.

However, there are still many pitfalls for unsigned bands and any help they can get is always appreciated. With the rise of all the TV talent shows, and the charts being swamped by all their acts there is not a lot of room for new bands, so the number of unsigned bands seems to be growing rather than shrinking. You cannot imagine the amount of unheard talent in all of the unsigned bands, which really deserve a chance to get a recording contract.

It’s for this reason that I was really glad to discover a website for unsigned bands called www.banditnewsletter.com. They are a great resource for all of the unsigned bands out there that need help in all sorts of ways. They can really point you in the right direction, so that you are not blindly sending your demos off to record companies that will never listen to them. You’ve heard of the expression, it’s not what you know it’s who you know. Well it is certainly applicable to the music industry and their website can point all the unsigned bands that subscribe to them in the right direction. So if you are in a band I highly recommend that you give them a try and begin your road to super stardom.However, there are still many pitfalls for unsigned bands and any help they can get is always appreciated.

Hair Bands Versus Grunge Bands

Hair Bands Versus Grunge Bands
Hey Rock Fans! This was a super fun article to research. But let me apologize up front to any hard core grunge music fans. Sorry, but grunge just doesn’t appear to have the staying power that hair metal bands generated. Here’s what I found:

Hair Metal was a faddism. Even its most devoted fans couldn’t have ever thought the genre to continue in the mainstream, chart-topping status it had held in the 80?’s.

We all know that a high amount of of anything is often bad, and man was that true of LA hair bands. But hair band rock and roll was so recognized with and a part of the 80’s that even the biggest and best of them weren’t able to make the grade into 90’s music.

But we are in 2011 now, these two decades are past and even a third decade is now history. So who will stand the test of time. Hair metal vs grunge Rock! It’s the musical war of the century and it’s being fought in the arena of retro music. Perhaps the answer will be found simply by looking at the concert calendar of any municipality in the world.

If we do this, we’ll see that hair metal reigns supreme. And the simple truth of the matter is that hair metal performers were much, much more intense musicians. It was the decade of guitar heroes and legends. Grunge was a more elementary and primal form of composition. Grunge music seemed to skip across The top part of the mass market, like a rock skipping on water. And then, like that rock, it sank.

I don’t want to get too deep into it, but just look at song sales and touring dates of bands. The evidence is everywhere and it’s just plain obvious that people like hair metal (despite the spandex and aqua-net) more than they like grunge. Maybe in the future, grunge will become palatable again and rear its head in the scene. But for now, it’s a little to lack-luster for an audience that has musical prodigies and masterful production pouring entertainment into their ears on an hourly basis.
