Brand new Tom Carter fundraiser offers 99 tracks for €7.50

tom carter
Yep, it’s a Bandcamp thang, but it is a real who’s who of alternative music with Vibracathedral Orchestra, Richard Youngs, Chris Corsano with Paul Flaherty, MV & EE with the Golden Road, Silvester Anfang II, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Heather Leigh, Bardo Pond, Tom Greenwood (of Jackie-O Motherfucker), Gate, Bird People, Tom Carter himself and, literally, loads more.

Let’s face it, most of todays finest musicians probably don’t even make as much as the UK’s national minimum wage and to suddenly be unable to play live, to have to pay for a new transatlantic flight home and all the healthcare costs must be a real nightmare

Get your Country Stash!

myspace loses another one!

saying goodbye to myspace

MV & EE have just posted a blog on their myspace site saying that they’re not going to post on there anymore and directing people to their new blog http://www.mvandee.blogspot.com/ for all future info.

As myspace becomes more and more difficult to use and increasingly rammed with enormous adverts, expect many more to be copying MV & EE’s actions. When I first relaunched this site, less than 2 years ago, myspace was still the main method of communication with the artists I play on the podcast but nowadays, everyone seems to be on facebook instead.
