Over the past five years or so, LOUD HORIZON has steadily increased in popularity amongst bands, artists, PR Companies and record labels all looking for a little bit of exposure for their latest releases.
It has now reached the stage where it could become more of a full-time job (if only it paid!!) rather than ‘hobby,’ to be fitted in whenever I can find some spare time.
So, with immediate effect you’re going to see some (well, a lot) of changes.
I make no apologies, but it’s going to become a bit more self-indulgent! Rather than concentrate on reviews of new music, there will be occasional brief posts streaming sounds / showing videos of bands that I particularly enjoy.
I plan to continue writing for ARTROCKER MAGAZINE, so would still welcome e-mails with downloads / links etc., and I will read as many of them as I possibly can. But please don’t be offended if I don’t reply. I will definitely get back to you if I think I could be interested in writing about any particular band, either for the magazine or for LOUD HORIZON itself.
PLEASE DON’T GO TO THE UNNECESSARY EXPENSE OF SUBMITTING MUSIC IN PHYSICAL FORMAT AS I CAN NO LONGER GUARANTEE I’D BE ABLE TO FEATURE IT.
I’m gonna miss writing the blog the way it was – but there comes a time when you have to prioritise things in your life.
Thanks to everyone for all the support you’ve shown the blog over the past years – I do hope you’ll continue to drop by and share some excellent music / comment.
(Here’s some to be getting on with …….. I have a good few ‘favourite bands’ but in any list that precludes my proper punk preferences, then PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES would certainly make my all-time Top 5.
The first video is for a track taken from the band’s first full length album ”Good Health‘ and remains a particular favourite of mine. The second is lifted from the follow-up album ‘The New Romance‘ and always went down a storm when played live. Enjoy!)
CHEERS ‘n’ BEERS
