Things that will definitely influence your getting on Sticky Gum Kick Your Own @ss Samplers
1 Buy the latest release. Tell your friends. Get involved. Understand what I am doing.
2 Get a show and book one of the acts that is on one of these CDs as an opener. Cooperate!
3 Be creative. Not derivative. If I don't know you, tell me something important about you.
4 If there is nothing important about you, come back when there is.
5 Be independent, not corporate. Be an activist, not a tattoo.
6 I don't like Heavy Metal. No big deal, you can do what I am doing with your friends. If you don't know how, ask me. Be prepared to do everything yourself.
7 I like secular, non-religeous music. Hate speak/racist/sexist etc... stuff will be tossed.
8 I like bands like you'd find on this page: HERE. But if you don't fit into this genre, ask me. You might be suprised how positive a curmudgeon like me might be. Solo acts are fine.
9 Join the Scurvy email list. I send out gig announcements for SGE affiliated bands playing within 100 miles of Charlotte, NC, & stuff pertaining to the label, and Frocky Jack. Not much mail really...plus whenever the CDs get a review I will send a notice with a link or the text. Good stuff for your press kit.
10 Have fun. Enjoy what you are doing. People will like you for it.
