In a bid to sign up more bedroom writers and internet musicians, PRS has reduced the price to just £10.

Radio 6 after Myspace Bands
How are you? Hope all's well and things are going well at school and
with the fanzine.
The idea is that bands with a MySpace page or online presence submit their link via the website and Tom plays out the best stuff he finds. Tom chooses every track personally (and makes the podcast himself!), so suffice to say it's a great chance for new, unsigned bands to get their material heard...
If you wanna forward this onto anyone who might be interested please feel free.
Hope to see you soon, take care
P.S - Interviewed Bob Mould and Mick Jones last week which reminded
me that you bought me my first Husker Du LP and played me my first Clash
record, so thank you :)

WHO WE ARE
We specialise in all things alternative or 'independent', and pride ourselves on the size and comprehensive yet eclectic nature of our listings. We can offer all the newest indie releases and also a huge selection of rare and collectible items. We're also dead good at tracking stuff down for our customers, whether or not it's in our database.
WHY WE ARE CONTACTING YOU NOW
WHAT WE ARE ALL ABOUT
Despite the changing formats over the years, our "ethos" has remained pretty much the same we are first and foremost music fans, and are in this for the love of music. We are passionate about offering our customers some of the coolest and most dedicated musos in the world a real, friendly, helpful, personal service. We care about this stuff, and we also care about making sure our listings are as up-to-date, accurate and relevant as possible for people who share our passion (obsession?).
We now have a database of over 120,000 releases, which is updated several times every day. Not many sites, we think, can match ours for comprehensiveness. The new design also means that our customers can search and interrogate the database in different ways (by release date, by keyword, by artist name), helping them to unearth many an obscure gem from the depths of our listings!
