What gets me is U.S bands that pat themselves on the back that they have a Euro contract, and vice versa. So? Somehow this is a good thing? "Hey our CD's been released in England!" OK... There is little or no airplay available for AOR in the UK, the tour scene for AOR is non -existant, plus the cost of getting over there is almost out of reach for most bands, and a lot of indie labels do not pay tour support. The most you can hope for outside the mail order specialist, is that the CD might pop up in a few stores over there, but who's going to know about it?

In reverse the Euro labels are trying to "break" America now. Saw a copy of the MTM RTZ CD thats been in the same store on the same rack since last Summer, and yet somehow Teer will sell? Without Airplay and Tour support none of this will happen. I think the labels themselves have a lot to do with this-selling a bill of goods to bands and the fans themselves. The bands are just as bad and need to get smart about what it really takes. Having a "label" means nothing, and having Distribution means nothing unless the label have the Dollars to support it.
