Hello all Quadrophobians (like amphibians but more Quadro-like). I’m going to spoil the surprise right now and say that we did not win the Jack FM final (sorry guys), BUT we did put up a good fight. Onwards with the actual write-up though.
For those of you who have not kept fully up to date with proceedings in the Jack FM comp up to this point I shall fill all of you in now (I’m a gentleman like that). The first I heard of it was Jim sending an email round saying “oh yeah, by the way, I’ve sent of an mpg of Super Badger to Jack FM to apply for this contest”. We weren’t really expecting to hear much back, but hear back we did. Oh yes. It turned out that we were shortlisted as semi-finalists based on this one “demo” (the idea was to send off a little demo of us. We went for overkill and sent off about £300 worth of studio and mastering time efforts. Seemed to work). Having been chosen in the top 20 out 127 bands (127? 140? 60,786? not sure of the exact figure) we were starting to take this quite seriously, especially given the prize at stake. For those of you unaware of the prize at stake, it was a place at Wychwood festival and a £2000 recording session. Not too shabby. (continue reading…)
