News : Myspace and Public Revolution, GET PAID FOR YOUR MUSIC!!

founder writes"Independent artists have switched on to a winning system by joining both myspace for mass exposure and www.publicrevolution.com to earn bucks for every download. "Some of the bands have figured how to best work the system..." Stated publicrevolution.com founder Terry Church, "They grow their friends and fanbase on myspace, replace their free downloads with 30 sec previews, and direct them to www.publicrevolution.com to buy a full 192kbps CD quality version for just $0.99 (AUD)." Church stated. When asked if publicrevolution.com was a copy-cat site to myspace, Church replied "There is simply no comparison... publicrevolution.com is like myspace on steroids and we only focus on independent artists. We also have a streaming radio player, video interviews, indie ringtones... heaps more." Stated Church.

News : Buyer beware

strahany writes"saw this note from Venue music (SYDNEY) - thought the MELBAND community could benefit:

I AM GETTING WORRIED ABOUT THE AUCTION RIP OFFS

AUCTION SITES as you know I have written about auction

sites before but in the last few months the number
of FAKE guitars has been showing up is really alarming
They must think we in Australia are a lot of really stupid
people

GIBSON’S EPIPHONES FENDERS all the TOP guitar
brands. Its bad enough to get ripped off with a NO-NAME
brand but to get cheated and disappointed when you thought
you had purchased the real thing are actually criminal.
Now these guys who are selling this crap are usually in
CHINA and Hong Kong. Hiding behind e mail address
That they change often and the chance of getting any thing
likes a refund is ZERO

How can any body believe you can buy a Gibson or Fender
for starting price of .99 cents, But wait check the freight $400
usually what crap!!!!!

More importantly this is a blatant rip off and when the
lump of wood they call a guitar arrives there is nothing you
can do. You have done your dough, Also worse there are now Australian people buying the
rubbish and then reselling them on to the public on the
same auction site. Shame on them .Why don’t they go rob a
bank or something that takes more guts than stealing the
hard earned dollars from honest folk like this.


Be careful folks, no one with 1/2 a brain and 2 seconds
thought can believe you can buy a Gibson or Fender etc
for something like $3/400. It is B/S and you will be the loser
I saw an ad for a "BRAND NEW STANDARD
STRATOCASTER MADE IN MEXICO" "BUT the idiot put
PRODUCT OF CHINA in the ad
HOW DOES THAT WORK ? MADE IN MEXICO;
PRODUCT OF CHINA? DUH !!!!!!!!!!
STUPID YES BUT NOT AS STUPID AS THE POOR
DUMMY WHO BUYS ONE AND FINDS OUT ITS NOT REAL.

And cannot do anything about it
You have NO PROTECTION OR RIGHTS ON THE
AUCTION SITE AS THE SAY. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!
AND THEN WHEN I DID COMPLAIN TO THE AUCTION
SITE PEOPLE THAT THIS STUFF WAS FAKE ETC THERE
REPLY TO ME WAS
"WE DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE PRODUCTS
WE ARE NOT EXPERTS AND WE JUST HOST THE ADS"
IN OTHER WORDS, TOUGH LUCK DUMMY !
BE CAREFUL BUY FROM AN AUTHORIZED FENDER OR
GIBSON EPIPHONE ETC! STORE THAT YOU CAN GET
SERVICE AND THINGS FIXED IF THEY NEED IT AND KNOW
YOU ARE GETTING THE REAL THING. PLUS THE GUITAR
COMPANIES STAND BEHIND THEIR DEALERS
THE FINE BRAND NAME GUITARS GO TO A HUGE
AMOUNT OF TROUBLE TO BRING THE BEST TO THE
MARKET .THE HIGHEST QUALITY THEY CAN AND EVERY
DAY THERE REPUTATION RIDES ON THERE PRODUCTS.

DON’T LET THIS CLEARLY ILLEGAL FAKE B/S COPY
BUSINESS RUIN 100"S OF YEARS OF GOOD GUITAR
MAKING .YOU WILL BE REWARDED BUY INCREASING
VALUE AND MORE IMPORTANT THE PLEASURE OF
PLAYING A FINE INSTRUMENT.

TAKE CARE BUY CAREFULLY DON’T LOSE YOUR HARD
EARNED MONEY TO PEOPLE WHO DON’T CARE AND WILL
RIP YOU OFF IN A FLASH KNOWING THEY ARE
PROTECTED AND HIDDEN BEHIND THE AUCTION SITEWEB
AND A BUNCH OF B/S NAMES THAT CHANGE ALL THE
TIME ANY TIME YOU SEE AN AD FOR SOME THING THAT
MAY BE A RIP OFF FEEL FREE TO ASK US WE HAVE 25

YEARS OF UNBLEMISHED SERVICE AND 100'S OF
1000’S SATISFIED CUSTOMERS .WE WILL TELL YOU THE
TRUTH. IF IT’S REAL NO PROBLEM
IF ITS A RIP OFF WE WILL TELL YOU QUICK SMART
MUSICIANS AND MUSIC FIRST HAS BEEN OUR THING
FOR 25 YEARS"

News : Record YR MusicOZ Awards entry LIVE in Melbourne!

VicMUSIC writes"The Musicoz Awards are open and what better way to enter than record your entry live! There’s limited places to record your entry live at the Noise bar in Brunswick every Thursday night in July & at Zudio Studio in Clayton on Sunday the 16th & 23rd July!

In partnership with VicMUSIC, NoiseTV and Zudio Studio, Musicoz is excited to announce that Melbourne’s unsigned artists have the opportunity to lay down their tracks to enter the annual Musicoz Awards – Australia’s biggest Awards for unsigned artists.

Recording in a professional studio can produce excellent results for bands but there are those bands and solo artists who are currently either just starting off and can’t afford studio time or haven’t got home recording facilities. Not only that, but some performers tend to play better live and so what better way to get your songs on a CD and enter the Musicoz Awards at the same time?

“It’s cheap means of recording and it’s a great way to hear how you sound live,” said Kimberley Hopkins, Publicist for Musicoz. “It costs $25 per song to enter the Musicoz Awards and like all entries, if you record a fourth song at Noise bar, it’s for free. So in a nutshell, the recording is free and you enter those songs into the Musicoz Awards. It’s that easy!”

By entering the Musicoz Awards, artists are in the running to win over a hundred thousand dollars in cash and prizes and industry opportunities including instruments from Turramurra Music, mastering at Turtlerock, production deals with Faultline Records, Tone Market and Central Station Records (to name just a few). Plus other awesome prizes like recording time at Trackdown, Velvet Studios, Mainstreet and Studio 301. Check out the website for the humongous list.

Julie Kilpatrick, President of VicMUSIC heard about the Musicoz live recordings that were happening in Sydney and wanted to offer the service to musicians in Melbourne. “I thought it was a great idea and VicMUSIC wanted to get involved. Our aim is promote the growth and development of original contemporary music in Victoria, both as an art form and as an industry, so it was a perfect fit,” said Julie.
So get ready! Contact VicMUSIC now to make a booking on a particular date. Remember, it’s first in, first recorded for this amazing opportunity.

Entries for the Musicoz Awards are open until July 31 and the Awards are held on December 7th in Wollongong, NSW and broadcast on national television.

Performance Bookings: VicMusic: 0410 564 364 (between 9am - 7pm) or info@vicmusic.org.au
www.musicoz.org for rules and regulations on entering Musicoz

With thanks and support from VicMUSIC, NoiseTV and Zudio Studio."
