April 2008 will see the release of 'The 6 Machine', a 6-way split 10" record featuring bands picked by a public A&R community. With so many up and coming artists out there, this is your chance to help bring the cream of the crop to the surface and ensure that your opinion is heard.
Big Scary Monsters (the label which has previously brought you records from Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Meet Me In St Louis, Yndi Halda, Jeniferever, This Town Needs Guns and many more) are currently asking unsigned bands from all over the world to submit tracks. The best 12 will be chosen and a list will be published online asking anyone with an opinion and a decent taste in music to have a listen and let us know what they think. The 6 with the most votes come 7th March will make up the tracklisting of the vinyl, currently scheduled for release on 21st April.
Each person will only be allowed one vote so to help you pick your favourite we'll be running profiles of the 12 candidates over at Blog Scary Monsters throughout the voting period, as well as publishing a special, one-off episode of the BSM podcast (available via www.bsmrocks.com/friend or itunes) featuring all of the bands.
All bands/artists wishing to submit a track are asked to do so by emailing an MP3 to firstname.lastname@example.org - the deadline is 24th Feb and the 12 shortlisted bands will be notified via email that week.
