thanx a lot guys for picking us as the artist of the month;)
as a little gift in exchange for your appreciation of our music we put up a song that's on the album but is not on our myspace profile or anywhere else!
here's the link for the audio streaming of the song called Doll - some people say that it's as offspring-ish as it could possibly get - well check it for yourself and give it a listen ;)

and as for the additional info - you can get the physical copy of the album from the one and only RonWelty - just get in touch with him. And if you want to get the album in mp3 format you can get it off several online stores including:
iTune (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=310970303&s=143441&uo=4&v0=WWW-NAUS-ITUWEEKLY-OVERVIEW)

I already did. I asked one of the mods to sticky it for me and no one has done it yet. It's been like three days since I asked.

I sent a message to one of the mods to sticky this thread and nothing happened. I never even got a response. Perhaps you should handle ATOM, ad8.

Also, what about the poll for the next AoM? Ricky, are you able to copy/paste the poll from the AoM: June thread in here? If that would be too complicated, I could create another thread for that as well.

Doll is a nice song! It has got the typical "Holden Avenue-catchyness" that makes me want to sing along during the chorus:D Good work!

Free?

First of all, congrats, Russel! I wish you have posted a bit more outside of this thread though (like most artists here) :). Good luck with your band and have a fun tour!

Also, I'd like to know, why does this thread has so few replies, even though Holden Avenue got the most votes back then. So, come on, voters, show some respect to the artist you're supposed to like the most here. It's like you don't care at all. Not cool.

I second this ... I had the same thought a couple of days ago. Where are the usual suspects.

Sorry for the double post ... I have heard your stuff before, RonWelty introduced me to your band a couple of months ago. I just watched your video and must say that I really like it. It is clean, simple and very effective ... congrats :cool:

Thanx a lot guys ;)
Hope you enjoy the rest of the album as much as the songs on myspace.

And I wish I posted more on the whole BBS, but I don't really have time to post, I just read some of the more interesting threads.

And as for HA, we have won the audience prize on one of the biggest polish festivals, we are more than happy with that ;)

you can watch a video of us performing DOLL on youtube from that festival- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bETZTKze1gI ;)
