    Totally agree with you Neil, the Internet is a tool which should be used properly when promoting bands and not as a ‘one stop shop’ where we get to read self-aggrandising statements, obligatory moody photos and poorly recorded demos given the same platform as everyone else. The playing field is levelled unjustly, the real talent is still out there but now they are competing for attention from a dissasociated audience, anesthetized due to the influence of MySpace and Facebook.
    More than ever people are ‘liking’ bands that they have never even seen live or in some cases even-heard-but-because-their-mates-are-in-them… When used correctly the Internet can work to promote a band by allowing their music to be heard and information about where they are performing, not a platform for saturation.
