Myspace Mania

It’s been a week since I set up my Myspace site
and I can’t believe I didn’t do it years ago.

As far as the net goes I’ve been quite ahead of the game with most things Amazon, Ebay, dodgy sites for downloading music - I’ve been doing them all for years. So I don’t understand how Myspace slipped off the radar and has been a black hole in my cyberspace for so long

Like all the best web ideas – It’s completely democratic and a great leveler. whether you’re the biggest act in the world or a happy amateur like me, everyone has to strip it down to the same set format of 1 page and 4 songs (how you tweak, customize and put some fairy dust on the format is down to you). And like Ebay’s feedback system, the Myspace add friend idea is genius. It frames the context of your music and gives a bit of added celeb endorsed sparkle at the same time.

Already in the last week, my tracks have had more play, I’ve had more add requests and approvals than I would ever have expected.

Who needs stressy soundchecks, lugging amps around and mumblers at the bar while you’re trying to tear it up on stage for a handful of people. When anyone on the planet with a PC can be your audience 24 hours a day?

I’ve already got the buzz to get a second one up and running for my acoustic stuff, - Mellow Mondo

Watch this cyberspace for more info

Cool stuff dude. I'll keep checking your site for more updates. I love Myspace too. It took me ages to get it up and running after I signed up to it. I've been in contacvt with some people I haven't seen for a while through it and have heard some great tunes too.

Gonna add your blog to my site as a link.
