What is it?
A collection of mp3's performed by members of the forum. Basically a .zip/.rar file that people can download & listen to.
How many tracks?
What are the qualifications?
Um, must be member of the forum, preferably posts in not just this forum. Does not have to be a band.. Instrumental is okay, too.
Let's just say that as long as it doesn't literally hurt my ears to listen to it, I'll okay it. Oh and as much as I love Pay The Man, 13-minute tracks rarely work so the track should be within considerable limits.
Doesn't have to be a new track, you could have recorded it in 2006 as long as it's by you/your band.
I would love if it was more original songs than covers but I guess covers are okay, too. Let's say you have an okay original song and a kickass cover; please submit the okay original song. The idea is to get your voice heard! :]
I can't play an instrument or sing but want to participate, can I?
Sure! I don't have Photoshop or PSP so it would be totally kickass if somebody with l33t photoshop skillz could make an album cover/track listing to the album!
Another idea is for somebody to record a spoken word intro ala Americana or Ixnay or Smash. Hey, if it worked for the Offspring, it can work for us!
How do I submit a track?
Upload an mp3 on yousendit.com/sendspace.com/megaupload.com or something similar, PM Homer with the link, track name & your band name/artist name - otherwise I'll just credit your username on the forums as the artist.
Try to get them in by April 1st ..unless you guys feel that's way too early. Again I remind you it doesn't have to be a newly made track.
When all tracks are submitted, I'll listen to them and form a preferred order of listening (which may or may not suck) and pack them in a .rar/.zip and upload. :]
- Largely depends on the number of submissions but for now: 2 songs per artist/band, and I'll probably pick one of those.. Or send just one song if you feel confident enough in it.
- Genre can be anything but I would ask you to submit an approachable track; an 8 minute noise track might be the best thing you've ever done but will the others get into it?
