I replied to it, and me and Dave Brayley (who I presume imaginatively named DCB Promotions after his own initials) had a little electronic conversation.
Me: WHY are looks so important?
Dave: i said look cool not have good looks"the look of this band is really important" ...why are looks so important?
yes, the look, whats wrong with a band looking great
nothing, i'm asking why they HAVE to
because for this particular thing i want a band that looks good, why have you got a problem with that
because i think bands look good when they are being themselves, playing original music, not when they are put together solely because someone thinks they can make money out of it.its quite clear what this if for, a covers band, if its something your not interested in then just ignore it, 99% of what we do is with original bands, this isnt
good point, it's not like you ever book cover bands at the fleece, is it...
oh sweet! hard-fi!
ok, send me a link to your band
really like it
can i have a gig then?
He didn't reply to the last one. Anyway I don't know if this proves much other than I used to be (?) a bit of a knob. It's a shame people like this make a living from music, but it's not the only way.... right?
