It appears to be that time of year again where the NME Awards come rolling round. Now, I’m a realistic man. I’m aware that we’re not the sort of band that generally stands a chance of winning (or even deserves to win) awards. I’m not going to ask you to waste your time voting us as “Band Of The Year” or me as “Sexiest Male” (although…), but as I look down the list there’s one category that takes my fancy.
BEST BAND BLOG
Name me another band who has documented its eating habits across a North American tour. Meticulously writing food reviews every day. FOR US AND FOR YOU!!
Name me another band that sells its second hand clothes on their blog. FOR US AND FOR YOU!!
Name me another band that has run a competition as engrossing as the Record Pox Project this year. FOR US AND FOR YOU!!
Name me another band that tries as hard to keep in touch with anyone who wants to keep in touch, as frequently and carefully as we do.
Every piece of news that we announce as a band is announced on this blog first. Before any press release or any nonsense like that, because we want YOU to see it, before somebody who works at the news desk of a webzine does. The only people who have access to this blog are us. No management or record label or PR person has a password to get into it.
I’m really proud of what we’ve created with this blog and some idiot part of me thinks “maybe this is a category we could actually make a splash in”. So, if you think our blog is worth it, please vote for us in this category. As a music fan, I think a lot of bands don’t make the effort they should with things like this. The effort to keep in touch with the people that actually let them do what it is they love doing. If we did anything in this poll, I reckon it’d be a victory for us AND for you.
PLEASE VOTE HERE!!
You can vote for all the categories, or just for “Best Band Blog” (loscampesinos.com) if you don’t have any other preferences. You don’t need to submit any contact information or anything like that.
Thanks guys, you’re the best.
ps. If there are any band blogs you think are better, let me know and I’ll up my game.
