Winston's Dog - Self Titled

"Winston's Dog plays with a lot of different sounds and genres, oftentimes sounding a lot like the Hives without the psychotically twitching lead singer."


Anti-Industry Archives

"I'd like to see them mosey up to the plate and hit a couple "What the Hell Were They Thinking" smokers out to the public."

Hi all,

This is cross posted in lots of music journals. I'll post it one more time in the beginning of August :)

I apologize in advance if I've already mentioned this here, I lost the list I was keeping so I don't spam people.

I run a website for indie musicians (www.anti-industry.com) and 90% of the services we provide are free. I'm a huge music fan - not a lawyer, businesswoman, promoter or anything. I wanted to put out a compilation CD of all the awesome artists on the site that was of high enough quality that it would not be thrown out when sent to colleges, radio stations and indie/industry labels, so we opened a contest.

This "contest" has a $15 entry fee per song, but you can enter as many times as you want. The money goes towards the prize pool and production (mastering, CD art, pressing, and shipping costs to the distribution). It's entirely DIY on my part. I'm trying it out this way since the last CD crashed and burned doing it 100% free - I think next time I will probably have a lower prize pool and lower entry fee.

So here are the gory details, please let me know if you have any questions/suggestions etc!

BEST ORIGINAL SONG CONTEST!


from www.anti-industry.com

Grand Prize: 1) $500 USD for best original song as voted by members of Anti-Industry.com, 2) Track slot #1 on the CD, 3) Two hundred (200) one-inch buttons courtesy Seatthole T Shirts.

Runner up: 1) Four (4) Anti-Industry tee shirts and 2) One hundred (100) one-inch buttons courtesy Seatthole T Shirts

Third place: 1) Fifty (50) one-inch buttons courtesy Seatthole T Shirts and 2) One order of 250 Black & White stickers from Contagious Graphics.

Entry fee: $15 per song, enter as many times as you wish. **ENTRIES ARE ONLY ACCEPTED THROUGH SONICBIDS. If you don't have a Sonicbids account, they are generously offering a discount of 66% on their 6 month accounts. You pay $24.95 to enter the contest AND for a 6 month Sonicbids account. The regular price for a 6 month SB account is $29.95 - you get it for $9.95. It lets you enter for free in many other events other promoters are having, and is a professional way to present your electronic press kit.

More details and all the rules are here.

Thank you everyone :)

"There are few musicians on this planet who know a guitar as well as their lover's skin- Jon Gomm is one of the elite."


Jon Gomm - Hypertension

"What has pulled the score down is the meshing of bland vocals and uninspired melodies with what could easily be legendary chops."

Naked Bulb for June 2004

VAYA


By Kate Campbell Editor in Chief

Once upon a time, a few boys from the outskirts of Thunder Bay, Ontario, decided to start a band. First there was a Foreigner from Chile, later christened as Jip. Second was a larger, much more squat individual who took pride in hairiness, much to the Foreigner’s dismay. He was always known as Ian, but his high school days left him branded as a Melting Retard.

Excerpt from biography

Bands should always have this much fun. Vaya is an endlessly energetic indiepunknroll pride of players from Thunder Bay, Ontario, who took continuous shots at quipping their interview to death. Nearly every group photo places them in increasingly bizarre mid-action as if they were shooting a Mentos commercial. I had a feeling this wouldn’t be dull.

 


Read the entire insane interview!Collapse )
