A&R in Australia

Sukebe 24 May 2003 02:54

I have only met a few A&R guys in Australia. They tend to be either old or up themselves. Do they ever check the street press, check out gigs and generally give 2 hoots? I have heard nuthin but horror stories.. they chase the hot stuff instead of using their imagination and developing something new and different. We (Australians) are constantly joked about overseas as being 'cover' bands... following whatever is happening in the States! And what ever happened to that word 'development'? It's gone gone gone...!! You know game companies who hire kids to play with toys to test stuff out? More record labels should do that and maybe they'd have more success?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I'm almost at the point where I feel A&R and record cos in general are becoming more and more irrelevant to music and it's place in popular culture. Bands place too much emphasis on scoring</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Hmm, nooooooo....! I wish it was that easy. In all honesty, I have never met one I respect (for what they have done, and who they are personally). I am sure there is one out there... I just haven't had the pleasure. Like I said, these companies should hire kids (and other target audiences) for a day and let them stuff around with the CDs they are sent and pick out the ones they like (and ask why).... imagine that!</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
