Poor old Dave Bowman. 2010 isn’t full of stars at all, just the same old crud from the Noughties, but with slightly cooler-looking dates, and less ready money.
But wait! Here’s the All-New* A New Band A Day to make a tangible difference to the world as we know it.
The clunky old ANBAD has finally been confined to the Great Internet Dustbin Of Pity and behold: the new ANBAD is here, and it finally looks a little bit like a real website, at last.
But wait! There’s more – marvel at the menu bar in the middle of the site and notice that there is now a bit more than just a great new band every day. There’ll be new interviews with the best new bands, so you can hear from the bands themselves; new features on new music from new writers, so yu can hear the thoughts of bright young writers; new insight from local scenes all over the world, so you can hear what’s happening on the other side of the world; and – finally – new radio shows highlighting great new music. And yes, we are getting paid each time the word ‘new’ is written in bold.
As of today, there’s an article featuring a bizarre Melbourne dance phenomenon, another article about why we’re wrong and Tim Westwood is right, interviews with Forest Fire and Nic Dawson Kelly, and a radio-show round-up of December’s Top Five New Bands. Click the tabs for more.
I hope you enjoy the new ANBAD! (Or should that be NANBAD?)
