Some people may be surprised by this post as it is something that I would normally never do. As a general rule, I am against this whole “if I get so many followers by such and such date, I will give you this.” However, as I do not currently have my radio show to promote this and am a strong believer in independent musicians and believe they are the ones that need our help and support the most, I am going to promote this here. I hope it does not set a precedent. So let me just say this now, if you email me asking for something similar, my answer will most likely be no (exception of course is if you think you would qualify for featured musician of the month or want an interview, etc.). These gentlemen did not ask me to do this for them, I offered.
There is this group of young musicians called Godz Poddlz. I have mentioned them here before as they were among the list of competitors in Masters of Song Fu 5. You may still be asking yourself, “Godz what?” Well let me further explain by copying and pasting what they have to say for themselves on another site:
Legendz foretell of a mighty duo, born in the frozen North. Two neighborz and friendz will unite to form “Gödz Pöödlz” and battle the Mazterz or Song Fu for glory and bragging rightz! Gödz Pöödlz are Rüss Rögers and Rhöd Dürre. Rüss Rögers was once a member of “Kit and Kaboodle” (still available on iTunes) and currently performs in “Rusty’s Rocking Jamboree!” Rhöd Dürre wrote and performed with the Goth Rock Godz, “Sear”, and last year Rhöd won the Coor’s Light “Take the 4:53 to Happy Hour” songwriting contest! Remember, the heaviest of metals are soft! Gödz Pöödlz gathered tens of fans and notable reviews with their participation in Masters of Song Fu 4. Their songs are available for purchase at godzpoodlz.bandcamp.com
These fine young gentlemen are on a mission. What is this mission you may ask? Well I am glad that you asked this question. Their mission is simple. They want to acquire 100 fans on their Facebook Fan Page by February 1, 2010. If they complete this mission, they have a gift for you in return. What is this gift? Again, I am glad you asked. The gift is as follows:
If we have 100 fans by February 1st we’ll make our album at godzpoodlz.bandcamp.com a FREE download for the week of Valentines Day. Plus, we will write and record a NEW song based on some fanz suggestions for the album. The details are here:
So, stop by the Godz Poodlz fan page and make a suggestion for a song. Or suggest Godz Poodlz to your friends.
I would appreciate it if you did. Because I said before, it is the independent musicians that need our support the most. And I am sure the guys at Godz Poddlz will appreciate it as well.
