    i have to tell you about one of my bands big succes.

    i play in a band called solrosgatan (sunflowerstreet), we dont take our music especially serious so we have recorded some jams and proggressive, half-psycedelic things in a garage-studio.

    it started when me and two friends from my other band met one day when were all hung over and in a mood for some hang over jams. after the first song, we said that we have to keep on doing this so.. after like 4 months, our first record was made!

    to celibrate it, we arranged a release picnic on the street that our band is named after. this was on a tiny lawn. we handed out flyers to every mailbox in the street and telled all our friends and myspacefriends about it.

    the visitors were getting a free cd, free beer, free coffe and free cookies.
    about thirtyfive people showed up (we were expecting like 10 of our friends) and some of them were some local progg bigshots, who loved the cd!

    so, you should try it! we lost like 65$ on it but it was well spended money!

    you can listen to some of the songs from the album here:

    cheers! :ninja:
