    My band got offered a record deal the other day!!!! Hooray!! :biggrin: We haven't actually signed anything yet so maybe I'm being premature in posting this but I'm too excited not to. I've been trying really hard not to get excited about it till it's definite but I've just burst!!! Yay!!

    Great news! Glad to hear it. What kind of music does your band play?

    Be careful, even if it is a major label, get it checked out by a knowledgeable attorney. If it's a small company, go over it with a fine tooth comb. They can own your stuff until the end of time.

    And Congratulations!!!!! :approve:

    Thanks!!! Hooray!! We started out playing ska punk type stuff but we're sort of more like ska emo now if that exists with some metal for good measure. We try not to stick too closely to genres. We've been playing together for nearly 6 years now unsigned so we've been getting so desparate for a deal that if someone offered us a 50p advance, no ownership rights and they get all the royalties we'd probably have taken it!! I think we need to keep hearing 'be careful be careful be careful' over and over and over again or we might sign our kidneys away in a fit of excitement so thanks Evo for the advice!

    Ska-punk-emo-metal? I'm intrigued. Any chance of hearing some samples?
    Congrats by the way.

    :rofl: You know, when I read ska-punk too quickly, I read "skunk." I think you should blend all the names together and create your own genre: skunkey metal. Then you can have a concert in Ivan's backyard for all his striped friends. :biggrin: (Calling the music skunkey is not to be taken in any way as an insult or critique fo the style; it is merely the wanderings of my mind when I read things too quickly and words blur together.)

    Mmmm.... I'm getting a 'file not found' message. Was it moved?

    Talk about preoccupation... I forgot that I'd put the keyboard aside to eat my breakfast, and just stuck my finger into an egg trying to type that. :redface:

    I typed it in wrong, sorry. I think I've fixed it now.

    Nope, not yet. (Are you laughing at my absent-mindedness, or my typing yolk?)

    Ahhhh, it works now (fingers crossed...) God, my computer's so slooooow, it really takes it out of you. I was laughing at your eggy finger. Hee hee hee, it's still making me laugh, it's a really funny image :rofl:

    Scroll to the bottom of the page and click <FREE>. Then wait ~60 seconds and click <Download: 02_-_02_-_shiraz2.mp3> when it appears.

    I thought ska-punk died when emo became popular. Seems not. Hooray!
    I like that. Which instrument do you play?
    If you ever play in Hull, send me a PM :biggrin:

    Brilliant! Fantastic news.

    Let me know if you're ever playing Manchester or Sheffield, I'll be there.

    Can I ask what the label is? :smile:

    I play the bass. We've played Hull a couple of times. The first time I got really drunk and fell right on my face after the gig and I've still got a big scar on my top lip from it :cry: I'll let you know next time we play there.

    The label's 10past12, it's a guy from Snuff's label. I think we're playing Manchester pretty soon, at Satan's Hollow. I'll let you know when we get the dates booked. That'll be really exciting!

    Okay, third time lucky. Thanks, hitssquad, but that's what I was trying to do the first 2 times. Instead of the download ticket message, it couldn't find the file. It worked fine this time.
    I really like that music, Icvotria. It would cost me several thousand dollars to come and hear you in person, though, so I'm just gonna have to hope that you post some more of it.

    Thanks Danger! Perhaps now you've flattered me I'll try figure out how to turn cds into mp3 files and upload some more :biggrin:
