INDIE CONTACTS GALORE! (reviewed and recommended by
Underground)

I am a musician that has created a resource called "The Indie Contact
Bible".  I've been working on it for over eight months and have put well
over 1000 hours into this project. It is 311 pages and contains over 3000
reviewers and radio stations that are willing to listen to the music of
independent artists. There are also over 100 services that will help
artists to sell their music over the Internet, as well as over 200
locations that will let artists upload their song files. All genres are
covered!

It is going to be a quarterly publication, thus enabling it to always
remain current. There has been a lot of support and interest from around
the world. The First Edition is now ready.

It is something that I found was badly needed as I waded through the ocean
of dead links and outdated sites in an attempt to promote my own music.

Thanks for your time!

UNDERGROUND A&R SERVICES

::::Market your band to the Labels, Sell & Promote to the Masses:::::

We all hear of marketing and promotions come-ons from the music
industry that are overly expensive, or too good to be true or both.

This isn't one if those....

If you're an independent band or label, there is a way to promote
your goods by being on a cover of a printed fanzine, on the cover
of a popular webzine, ads in more webzines, get your music included
on a broadcast that music consumers, radio AND retailers subscribe
to....be included in music industry newsletters, a&r solicitations
and get interviewed live (maybe even play a cybercast gig live)...

at a cost that no one beats, or even comes close to!

The Underground A&R Report:
http://undergroundrecords.org/a~r.html

There simply isn't anything like it. From the creators of Rockfest,
the Virtual License (Digital Distribution), and defenders of the
faith concerning FREEDOM from the MUSIC INDUSTRY!

v1.0

Mediacore, a fancy-free bunch of cheap Vancouver trash, is pleased to
announce the release of v1.0, an enhanced music CDR. Featuring
hypnotizing video and musical styles encompassing noise, hardcore,
dark ambient, esquvirrel, and deeply awkward drunk'n'bass,
there is bound to be music even a dog can appreciate.

Artists include:
Bad Feng Shui
Clone
Crazy Dave
Cyclic vs Gendai
Error 404
Merlyn
Musikill
Seedy
Windowshade

We at Mediacore have dedicated ourselves to creating a distinct
experimental music and performance presence in Vancouver since 1998,
and have channelled the psychic trauma of this odyssey into our
release (and a soap opera called "Day of Cheap Bars" that is to air
in the fall 2000 season). Featuring over 30 minutes of audio that
can be played on a standard CD player, over an hour of MP3 audio,
and 8 minutes of video, v1.0 is a good time in the guise of a
coaster-like shiny piece of plastic.

You would not want to deny your animals any pleasure during their short
lives. Here is what some others have had to say about v1.0:

Our CDR is currently available at Boomtown & Scratch Records in
Vancouver, as well as Blackbyrd Myoosik in Edmonton. It can also be
directly purchased by mail for $6 US/$8 Cdn (make cheque payable to
Colin Hendry):

New diversions for you at Supersphere.com:

Featured: THE STRIKE! Wow, the Strike have been around for a long time.
Sad to say, they gave it their all for their last show ever - or so they
claim. We know how hard it is to accept cold, hard facts, especially the
ugly ones.

Also-ran: HARVEY SID FISHER A bunch of people here really like this guy.
Maybe you will too. He sings lounge songs about golf and astrology, and
he's old enough to be your dad.

Plus this noise:

Zeek Sheck. The beauty of Zeek Sheck will win you over, and if not, you
are probably feeble-minded and should go sit in the corner where you
belong.

Stagecoach. A Supersphere favorite. We like to call it "interpretive
misunderstanding" and if it makes any sense to you, you win a prize.

Aurora Plastics Co. Noise, homemade instruments, a theremin, and a guy
with lights on the sides of his glasses. What? Uh huh.

Dead Meadow. Psyche/acid rock that wouldn't be out of place in 1968.

And this not so noisy:

Stratford Mercenaries
Love as Laughter
Beachwood Sparks
Digger
Papas Fritas
Weakerthans
Bluebird

These are all in the regular Clubtronic section:

>>> http://www.supersphere.com/Club/Clubmain.html

Some of the above-mentioned bands were taped at SXSW. Yes, we know, it
goes on and on doesn't it? You can guess which ones, or take a look over
at:

interviews Jeff Pezzati from Naked Raygun, and currently, The Bomb.

>>> http://www.supersphere.com/TV/Network.html?ID=INTERVIEW

-----
MEDIAMIX: "American Pimp"! Plus an interview with the Hughes brothers who
made this nice, new piece of soon-to-be-classic Americana. Also a review
of the Ormond family's needs-to-be-considered-a-classic, "The Monster and
the Stripper".

5 times fast) to our site.

-----
RADIOMATICA: New album reviews of Steve Roach's beautiful "Midnight Moon",
Soma Sonic's sublime "Future", Graham Haynes' puzzling "BPM", For Stars'
forlorn "Windows", and Mondii's quirky "T:P".
