Adam here at Short Wave Rockin. This is the first compilation compiled by myself of bands that I found on MySpace that don’t suck. I thought long and hard about what to call it and I could only think about Zombies… So officially and amazingly, here is the Short Wave Rockin Zombie Dance Compilation #1.
Here is the plan: I want to start making compilations of tiny independent bands that I like and more importantly: allow their songs to be downloaded on MySpace. What the fuck is up with this? Why would an unsigned band not want their song to be downloaded off their MySpace? Stupid motherfuckers. Maybe they think the song will make them rich one day. I don’t know. Anyways, my process was basically going to bands I knew I liked and seeing who they were friends with and the chain went on for a long long time. When I got to a band I, 1) checked to see if they were either unsigned or on a truly independent label (none of those “indie” rock bullshit labels) 2) I clicked on download on their songs to see
If they passed these two steps, I gave em a listen and if I liked what I heard, I put them on this compilation.
It’s pretty simple, though it took forever because hardly anyone allows themselves to be downloaded.
If you are in a band and have a MySpace- please let me download your songs- what the fuck!?
This was done with absolutely no permission from any of the bands. I don’t know any of the bands and I even had enough restrain to not include my own band (even though we are now dead) I’m looking at the list now and I put the Dwarves on there! Haha, anyways, most of the bands are really small..haha how did that happen?
Also, I’d love it if you would make your own mix with the same goal of listening to new bands that don’t suck.
