DASTARDS get more Kerrang Radio Airplay

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

On Sunday this week (10th May) Kerrang Radio played SUCCUMB by DASTARDS.

 Brilliant! – Thanks Alex and Kerrang Radio


DASTARDS are the best new band in Britain?

I’ve often heard that said – but it’s funny how the music business prefers to pretend the band doesn’t exist! We have sent CD’s to Radio One – ever get a play? – No (but we did get an email from Jo Whiley saying it wasn’t her thing – we’ll remind her of that one day!)

We’ve sent CD’s to NME – ever get a review? – No.

We’ve sent emails to publishing companies. Do we even get a reply? – No!

The music business is in a mess – and if music scouts, a&r, and programme controllers etc can’t recognise a good sound when they hear it – it is unlikely that the business is going to recover anytime soon.

I have an uncanny knack of being able to spot a hit. However I don’t hear them very often – and sadly I hear a lot of stuff on the radio that just does not deserve to be there.

What DASTARDS needs is airplay. The rest will follow. Radio 1 presenters please take note. When the success comes you’ll be begging to have the band in the studio. And where will the band be? With our mates at Kerrang – the station that has supported us!
