I just had the following email:

hi how do i go about getting the band im in signed with u?

That was it. Nothing else, no name, no Myspace link, no detailed discography and list of dietry habbits. How should I respond?

Answer: 'I was thinking about signing you guys. I really like your stuff, but I'm moving to Cuba to start a new cigar-rolling company. It's gonna be called 'Big Merry Cigars' Do you like the name?! I hope so!

All the best,
Kev D'

Is that good?

Tell him he has a deal

Tell him to meet you in the Urban section of the HMV at Piccadilly Circus on the 3rd of October. Instruct him to wear a red carnation and to bring a pen to sign the big deal

My serious answer (as this sounds like a bunch of kids who have no clue) would be to tell them to practice like demons night and day for the next 5 years. If they're lucky.

My comedy answer would be to say that you've already heard of them, you really like there [sic] stuff and you will be at their next gig to discuss terms. Signed The Great Psychic Stupendo.

Thanks John. I'm leaning more towards your comedy response but the angel on the other shoulder is complaining.

I've had too many emails like this over the last few years. I think the one from the 15 year old kid in the US who said "im gonna form an emo band and when i start my emo band will u sign my emo band?" was the final nail in the coffin

What a prick

It cannot succeed in actual fact, that is exactly what I think.
