Hello....

Great questions and great points made by everyone....

The latest trend that the record companies like is having a "ready to go" project where your CD is already completed and basically all they have to do is distribute it....This was the route we (Teer) were going in but we couldn't agree with our "investor" (the person funding us) on several points of a contract. We decided to take our money and record a top notch demo with Jim Morris and shop it to various record companies (which is where we are at the minute) instead of paying attornies to sort out the contract with our investor....DC Pete is right in the fact that it costs ALOT of money to go out on tour no matter how bare bones you make it....even if you DO move merch. We're lucky enough to have a great booking agent who can get us decent money to play gigs in the states....enough to cover expenses and have some left over to put back into the band....not bad for a no name Florida band here in the States.

The hardest thing is trying to find a label who will actually do something for you and maybe help promote you and make your band a bit of a priority....your band could have the greatest CD ever made....but if no one knows about it, it's f**kall...

Late

Rob
