Independently selling your CD..... places to start?

MrLoud 28 Jun 2004 17:38

Hey music lovers, can anyone tell me, either through experience or just because you know the drill, the best way to get an indie EP on the shelves of indie records stores.

I guess what I am after is what is the expectation of these stores?, which stores better receive such material? and realistic numbers, both units and price you should be talkn bout'?.

My band has just recieved 500 Copies of our 2nd EP (5 songs) and we want to try another avenue other than selling at gigs and word of mouth.

Cumbersome Records will support you any way they can. No bullshit. if you're a bit nervous or unsure then they are the best place to start. They are on johnston st. collingwood. In my experience, none of the local independent stores have had any "expectations." you just give it to them. if you're keen you can set up a bit of a stand for a while. That's always good.
the good thing about Cumbersome is they write a review of every disc in the shop. Hope that helps...</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>

Leading Edge stores countrywide will take stuff on consignment too if you are doing the regional gig thing. Most stores with the exception of the majors will at the very least look at what you've got. If they can't help ask who can? Don't ask when it's busy though!</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>
