how to get featured on a music website
Sure, we’re open to bribery here at Collapse Board. Isn’t everyone in the music industry?
We just like to be a little more open about it, that’s all. Not for us, the largesse of free drinks at the bar, free CDs, guest list places, the odd free drug or offer of sex, trips abroad, advertisements in return for guaranteed content … I’m not saying we’re not above taking it, just that we rarely – well OK then, never – get offered any of the above. A non-downloadable stream that becomes obsolete after seven days, that’s our fare. Someone linking us to the MySpace page. No matter. We like to take the more direct route. Send us money. Hard cash, preferably in Australian dollars. It doesn’t matter which currency it’s in really, as long as you send it. Maybe you might just enjoying reading Collapse Board and would like to show your support? Whatever. Here’s the Paypal account.
(That is a genuine account, by the way.)
Failing that, send us gifts. Gifts we can use. Gifts we want. Gifts like … uh, I don’t know … lunch-boxes with your band’s logo on them, pencils, lollies, T-shirts for the kids (like the one pictured above, styled by Isaac) … a USB key with your band’s music on it.
Of course, it helps if your music is GOOD. Helps, but not mandatory. We’ll still write about you if it’s crap, but we might not be, um, entirely favourable … y’know?
