I'm turning to you again.
After the incredible response I received a few weeks ago when I threw open the doors and screamed "what the crap would make you buy a compilation CD in these days of modern wonders?" I have another query and was hoping you guys might be able to spare a couple of moments to reprise your helpful roles.
I've been asked if I'd write a column for Drowned In Sound, much like the one here from fellow record label boss, John Brainlove. Sean (Mr DiS) has suggested that I use the piece to tip new bands who are taking my fancy and perhaps discuss a few label tasks I've recently encountered and hopefully conquered. It sounds like a good idea to me, not too dis-similar to Blog Scary Monsters (although a little more focussed and a little less Wire inspired!), but perhaps needs a slightly tighter brief or a different spin putting on it. This is where you come in...
What would you like to read about? Do you want random new musical tips? Would an orderly list of, for example, 5 per month be better? If yes to either of those two questions, would an explanation on how I came to find them be of any use? Or do you find it easy enough to discover your own new music and care little for other peoples taste? Are there any subjects related to record label management or new music as a whole which you would be interested in reading about? What if I just made Myspace Fruit Of The Week a permanent feature on their website?!
Thanks in advance for your time, y'all
