Question to the band, their management, and people in the know.

How can we the people, especially the people of the UK, get CRASHDIET into mainstream magazines, examples being KERRANG! Metal Hammer and Classic Rock magazine?

Perhaps write to the magazine and suggest they run a feature?

It shows them that there's people in the UK who are interested in the band.

you really think it works?

its a good point from lee, because you would start the interest for the people without internet. looking back when I had no chance to get in the web, I've got all the news from skid row, motley, gn'r from big magazines. I think its important.

I tell you honey it feels alright
to be another clog in the wrecking machine
wouldn't even cross my mind"

I don't think that sending a little request would do anything. The guys or their promoter (or what the fuck they call themselves) should contact the magazine. This new single and the upcoming album is a great reason to contact the magazines!

If the promoter contacts the magazines, then the magazine people just think "oh, another band that wants to promote themselves".

But if the fans contact the magazine, then they think "oh, maybe there are some people who like this band, perhaps if we run a feature we'll sell a few more copies".

ive wrote to the magazines and TV shows many times about their ignorance of these bands.

They just hit me with the same shit saying.

They have to play/cover whats popular.

But i also have contacts, and usually money talks, usually bands record companies give money and pull strings to get a feature. But perhaps if enough fans request the band, consistently enough....they will get a feature!

Ya I woundered about things like this too. Like I wounder if I could take some Crashdiet music to the rock station I listen to here in the US and see if they would play it, Or would that be up the the the Promoters to get them to play it. They would probobly laugh in my face.

That is want music has come to here. :(

I'm ALL UP FOR this!!! We should try everything! Anything!

I know the question is about magazine only, but it's all connected with gigs, no? :)

There must be promoters who'd support a good line-up. It's not like there'd be completely no sleaze gigs happening, right? I'm thinking of 3 bands. CRASHDIET, Peep Show (obvious reasons) and one other band, perhaps a different small band for each city where Crash and Peeps would play together. So they would get a chance to support the band(s) they like. :)
