Band of Me - Indie Music Videos

Filed under: website promotion, Band News, Band Promotion — ian @ 8:36 pm

Band of Me - music videos Bands and Solo ArtistsNow, this isn’t The full Unsigned Band Promotion endorsement and recommendation of Band of Me because I don’t really know them, but, it is a Link to a new community where musicians can be seen and heard through their music videos.

What they have to say about themselves: watch music videos of the top emerging bands and solo artists. Browse videos by instrument and genre. Join the Community and have your voice heard! "Where Musicians Come to Strut Their Stuff"

And I say good luck to them. It is another place for bands to post videos, and let’s hope it attracts music lovers who will become Your fans ;)

Out for kicks,

No News Is Good News!

Filed under: SEO, website promotion, Band News, Band Promotion — ian @ 10:15 pm

British Pathe News Logo - no news is NOT good newsNo news is good news. Err, no.

When a person visits your band’s website they’re probably just looking for a free download of your music. But, they will also discover your credibility! If your band’s website has a NEWS page that contains No News or Very Old News, the visitor will think, “no action”, and wonder if your band is going down the pan. Why support an ex-indie band? - so many bands break up. Give your visitor what she’s looking for. Band News!

No news is not good news

New Micro-Site For Sweet City Action

Filed under: SEO, Band Sponsorship, website promotion, Band News, Band Promotion — ian @ 2:10 pm

Sweet City Action indie rock band Gainesville Florida | 1982 BAR GainesvilleI’ve just finished a Micro-Site for the beautiful and amazing indie rock band from Gainesville, Florida Sweet City Action. Vilma and Christina are brilliant. I want the Micro-Site to help promote the band as they don’t have a Website just various profiles - watch this space as I may change the design. I wish them well and send my love. Sweet City Action’s favourite local spot to play is the 1982 Bar, Gainesville, which is just down the road from the University - so, if you fancy a fun-filled night out go and see them.

Band Name & Domain Name

Filed under: Band News, Band Promotion — ian @ 4:02 pm

Name Pistol - Band Name GeneratorI received an email from Lee Parnham of Name Pistol - the band name generator with intelligence - and I thought, "A band name generator should also be a domain name generator". I wondered if it was, so I generated three names and Googled them (with quotation marks and ending in Band): "BROOKLYN REBEL VOYAGE" Band, "EVIL SHAKEDOWN" Band, "EVIL KARMA DOLLS" Band and Hey Presto, much satisfaction, I found no results, the band name generator seemed to work :)

A band’s website needs a short memorable domain name that Is the band’s name - it’s what everyone expects. But what happens if your band’s name is being used by someone else either as a trading name, as a domain name or both? You will have to:

  • establish who has the right to use the name
  • re-think the domain name, e.g. try:
    • [Your-Band-Name.com]
    • [YourBandName-Band.com]
    • [YourBandName-Music.com]
    • [YourBandName-UK.com] (US, EU or whatever)
  • try negotiating with the other party (seek professional legal advice - sounds expensive!)
  • completely change your band’s name and therefore your domain name

Your band’s name needs to be one or two memorable words that reflect your band’s image, sound and genre. Choosing a band name isn’t easy, but it’s quite good fun using Name Pistol. When you’ve eventually selected your cool band name, make sure it’s O.K. to use it.

Test your chosen band name:

Name Pistol the band name generator will give you thousands of cool unused band names for most popular genres.

I Hate Money by Alexis Thompson

Filed under: Band News — ian @ 11:44 am

I Hate Money - CD/album - $7.00, 15 beautiful, chilling, edgy, fun tracks - country music Tennessee
Alexis Thompson is running a cover contest - which I think is a great idea (I wonder if it was hers?). Anyway, the way that it works is simple. You cover one of Alexis Thompson’s songs and send her a recording of it. The best cover wins. You can pick any of Alexis’s songs and submit as many covers as you like. The deadline for submission is, Friday 1st August 2008. I’ve picked “I Hate Money” and here it is:

/* I Hate Money by Alexis Thompson 2007 */
