Another month flew by so fast that i almost forgot it was time for another newsletter. I think this will be a short one though.
So what happened the past month....
Well for one..Neil placed a blog on his silvermusic site which you can read HERE. He talks about the upcomming release of his album and more...so go visit his website and read all about it.
Like i mentioned in the previous newsletter, Neil was enjoying a holiday with his family at his house in Spain the past few weeks.
He pointed out at his facebookpage that now his holiday is almost over, he's really looking forward to promote his album. So far he talked about possible promoting activities in Germany and Italy. Lets hope other countries will follow and hopefully Neil will reveal some dates for us real soon so we can try and attend some promo activities if possible.
I mentioned it before, but will do it again...we can all help promote him and the new album by mentioning him at your local radio/tv stations. If any of them are interested in playing his music, doing an interview etc. they can email to: firstname.lastname@example.org (mails are forwarded to Neil directly).
So whats up for next month
Well needless to say...the release of Neil's album No Self Control ofcourse!! We have all waited so long for this and now its finally going to happen..a release by a recordcompany and available in stores! to remind you all: release all over europe is september 23, release in the UK september 26. Other countries can buy the album at Amazon.
And to celebrate the release i just thought up a new contest for you all, to win a signed copy of the album.
All you have to do is make a photo of you holding Neil's album you bought and send it to: email@example.com
As subject for the mail mention: release album
Please mention the following things in your email:
Your full name and adress.
The name of the store and the city (and country) you bought the album.
To give you all enough time to get the album and send in your photo's for the contest. The contest will end at october 14. The winner will be contacted by email.
I'm still working on some changes on the fansite.
The radio interviews are temporarely not on the site but will return...don't worry.
I've done a test with an mobile app. for this site but in the end was to expensive and to actually go along with it. This site already has a mobile version. Meaning that if you search for this site adress thru a mobile device you automatically will see the mobile version of the site. For now i think that is enough for the amount of people that use it.
The funpage is back up and running with some new features like an exciting guitar game...go have a try and not to get to addicted.
The music/download site is now only for stream and downloads for members.
New/old music on the site
I've managed to get my hands on a vinyl album of Violent Blue released by Magnet records in 1985. Violent Blue was Neil Taylor (guitar/vocals), Charlie Jones (bass/vocals) with Tony Heyes (drums) and Phil Andrews (keyboards).
They only made the one album called: You've got to stay young. And one single: I won't give in losing you.
I've copied the entire album and b-side of the single from the vinyl record to mp3 and placed it on the fansite for you all to listen on the open musicpage HERE.
I must appologize upfront for the poor quality of the recording...i couldn't get it to sound any better with the software i had. With some internetbrowsers the musicplayer isn't working. It's working with Internet Explorer but if you use a different browser you can try listen to it on soundcloud HERE.
So not such a short newsletter after all
