Couple’s on Rolling Stones
This is totally out of ricecooker’s scope really. We don’t give a rat arse about Rolling Stones, the big arsed AmeriKKKan commercial-rock magazine. It is not ricecooker’s idea of a good music magazine, not since the mid-70s that is; do try UK’s outstanding Uncut and Wire for a splendid slice of top-notch rock journalism.
All this “Rolling Stones Best Bands on MySpace Contest” also smells like RS is trying to gather as much MySpace “friends” as they can and reap the ever plyable mostly dumb global “youth market”. Call us snobs, but corporate rock marketing is really bad comedy, if not unbearably cringeworthy.
However, we’ll make an exception today since our friend Aidil and his band is seemed to be on the verge of international stardom, and that may piss off a hell lot of the turds in the totally clueless local music industry, and that’s always fun to see! M. Nasir, eat yer heart out!
BTW; Aidil, you owe me a jug.
here’s Aidil’s email to ricecooker earlier today:
I’ve got some really great news and I really need your help now!! Couple has been chosen to be in the final round of Rolling Stone (USA) magazine’s Best Bands on Myspace contest.
Right now the Rolling Stone magazine staff has chosen us to be one of the top 5 bands of the day.
What we need you to do is to ask all your friends to go to the link below and vote for Couple by leaving a comment saying how much they like the song “Now That I Can See” and Couple:
Hope you can spread this email/news around and get as many people as possible to vote for us!! It’s Rolling Stone magazine!!
