Lets be serious for just a moment.....

Recommended Posts

who can honestly say that ,as a band or individual, try and work with others to try and improve relationships and contacts with promoters/venue owners and other bands in general? I cant help but point out that alot of people on this site spend their time slating others without any amount of constructive critcism. Its sad that there are so many people out there that go out of their way to place a blunt, useless and totally unproductive comment on others who neither provoked it or deserved it. So who could say that they are truly in it for the music and the sheer enjoyment of effectively progressing both yourself and others??

Just thought that this would shed some light on issues that are present in this site day to day. I dont want to start a revolution or anything, I just want people to realise that this place would be absoloutely incredible if everyone would just cut the bullshit!

Any thoughts?

los of people.

if you actually look past this messageboard (which if you havent nopticed isnt the scene) you will see lots of people doing good things

its about the people who go to gigs rather than the bands themselves, most bands are pretty cool with eachother

You need to realise that messageboards like this will never be like that, there are far too many assholes in them to allow such a thing to happen.

All you can do is work you're way through/around the bullshit!

I could go on all fucking day, but in the end mate, it's completely pointless...

The deal is this...You take the messageboard as it is, an identityless(ho ho ho) place to spread bullshit, you learn to play the game and use it to your advantage, whether it be to promtoe a gig or get traffic to your website, and that's it, you keep your band as seperate as possible, it's a completely different kettle of fish, if you're serious about your band, then you put your head down and work at it, you get shows away from Aberdeen, after all the spotlight hardly shines here, and you take every single opportunity to let people know about your band, to make contacts and to learn how to handle yourself in an orgainsed, professional manner.

My Mind's Weapon on here are just a local band that some like, some dislike and seem to stir a bit of playful banter, but to us, it's a band that would do anything to further their name, whether it be sitting online all day and night talking to people, or travelling 1800 miles in a Vauxhall Zafira to play 2 gigs on the South coast of England.

Use your head for the messageboard, and put your heart into your band.

There you go, cheesy as hell, but I'm tired, damn playing at rock stars till 5 in the morning with Steriogram!

hmmm im not going into it again (altough i did get a scene point last time so mayeb i should.....no better not to)

What i will say is tho, its changing there bands/artists now who are beginning to help each other out more. I can think of a group of people right now who are trying their best to do something that will help a good few bands with a lot of stuff. So its not all doom and gloom, just dont think about aberdeen music as the scene think of it as the toilet for the scene this is where all the shit goes.

nice constructive critisim like i know this site aint the be all and end all but it is a stepping stone for new bands to get there name out there and i have met quite a few good honest people such as kirk,flash (moorings) adam (pysdoll), lava p (paul from kef) etc that have helped us out and have actually bothered there asses to help us out as much as possible so thanks to those who have and to let you know we are doin stuff outta aberdeen such as glasgow,inverness, york but whats the point in being a band from abedeen if you dont enjoy playin in your home town because of a couple of arseholes! :swearing:

Cheesy - maybe; but that's probably the best piece of advice for a band regarding this website. Have a scene point Jamsey!
