  • If you didn't hear about it, Quit Myspace Day came into being with this superb article written last year by music industry academic Andrew Dubber. In it he outlines the root cause of the one thing about Myspace on which everyone can agree – it's a bit rubbish. He also gave them a year to clean their act up, failing which, he declared that there should be a Quit Myspace Day where we all up and leave.

    Due to the flocking nature of social networking, Myspace has, as Dubber puts it, every fricking band on the planet, to say nothing of a large proportion of the promoters, studios, merchandisers and other ancillary music types. With the right strategy it could be the best music site in the world, both for musicians and music fans. But it is not.

  • Dufus: Eth
    NEW CD 2010

    After almost 13 years and 10 full length recordings, Dufus is putting out our final album. This album’s production includes Seth Faergolzia’s voice and compositional wizardry, a horn section, two drummers, violin, a choir, bass, electric and acoustic guitars, toy piano, accordion, flute, and circuit bent noise instruments. It is our most grandiose and well plotted production. The content addresses a number of ideas including the importance of silence, long time friends, post-child breakups, love, schizophrenia, and profound dream stories.

    1. silence
    2. dastard
    3. life is empty
    4. feed the baby
    5. knock around
    6. old friends

    Read this:
    http://www.newmusicstrategies.com/2010/10/23/the-time-has-come-its-quit-myspace-day/

    Andrew Dubber, a lecturer in Birmingham and speaker on issues connected with the music industry has decided he really doesn’t like myspace.

    His argument includes opinion that the interface and public side of the pages aren’t very nice (I agree) although he is fairly quiet on the grey issue of rights for music uploaded to the site.

    However the arrogance that he thinks he has the influence to exact a massive blow to this huge site is ridiculous.

    Your comments please…..

  • Music World Radio is proud to announce that Seth Faergolzia, mastermind of the band Dufus, will be appearing live on the Magickal Mayhem show this coming Tuesday 19th October, in a special show dedicated to his work with both Dufus and related projects.

    The fun starts at 5pm Eastern USA timezone (that's 10pm UK time – check for 'Magick' on the schedule at http://www.musicworldradio.com/index.php?id=schedule for your local times) …and is broadcast live, worldwide, for free, with no registration required.

    Seth will be interviewed and available to respond listeners' questions for the whole two hour show, and will also be performing some of his songs live on the show – you can even watch him perform on the station webcam stream!

  • Legalize Cannabis Protest in Victoria Square , Birmingham City Centre.
    6th November 1pm – 4pm
    There will be speakers present and press

    The idea behind the day is to promote the Legalization on Cannabis for medical or any other use.

    We are asking that everyone brings one pre-rolled "herbal cigarette" and nothing else illegal. At 1:30pm we plan to all light up together infront of the press to promote our cause.

    Obviously there may be a police presence and obviously they may take action, however if you feel strongly enough about your right to smoke cannabis, we feel that the punishment will be insignificant in regards to the amount of good we will do for the cause.

    We are looking to book a few famous speakers and encourage you all to bring your posters, banners and anything you think will help promote our cause.

    more details will follow but please, if you believe you have a right to use Cannabis, come along and show your support. Pass this on.
