First Date Music


The Flea's musical stylings are almost ready to be unleashed upon an unsuspecting world in the form of "First Date Music"; a name I hope Flea-readers will agree is congenial and sympathetic as first album titles go. I have had enormous good fortune with the MySpace promotion, thus far attracting interest for using a piece in a forthcoming film and with a Ghost of a flea internet radio debut set for London in two to three weeks. With any luck the future holds incidental music in Jaguar ads...

Here is the trick: Deciding quite what to do next vis-à-vis independent labels or the adventure that is releasing and distributing the thing myself. I post this with the thought that given this blog's diverse and wide-reaching readership there may be sound advice to be had. Or just possibly someone who knows someone at a label looking for some dark ambient content for their catalogue.

Rough and ready Update Thanking Dodgeblogium's Andrew Ian Dodge for his thoughts on the matter is a good excuse to point out Growing Old Disgracefully is now available in EP form through CD Baby. So, thanks Andrew!

Suddenly the MySpace obsession starts to make sense in light of this musical enterprise. And here I thought you were just trying to find clever ways to meet new goth girls.

This would be the point at which you contact "opinion leaders" with offers of "preview content" in order to generate favourable, "viral buzz", if you know what I'm sayin'.

Thanks for the plug. Flea, remember Marty, my nom-de-review, when you send out review copies to the various press outlets.

I look forward to hearing your release with bated breath.
