Award winning Independent Music retailer FOPP is giving emerging bands in the North of England, Northern Ireland and Scotland an amazing opportunity in association with PRS Foundation (PRSF) and Clear Sound & Vision to:
– Record at a professional studio for free (3 track EP)
– Have their recording, edited, mixed, mastered and pressed.
– Help design artwork for their finished CD.
– Have their music sold at Fopp Stores nationwide as well as been given the opportunity to play exclusive in stores there, following in the footsteps of Franz Ferdinand, Tenacious D and The Rapture.
There’ll be six winners chosen by a panel of Music Industry Gurus. Including Dougie Bruce from Universal Publishing (The Killers, 50 Cent and The Streets); who works with The Kaiser Chiefs and Mylo. Entries can come from any genre; you can be in a band or a solo artist. If you’re over 18 and write your own original material (no covers!) then you’re eligible. More information, application forms and terms & conditions are available via Fopp’s website link and PRS Unsigned link. Deadline for applications is the 21st of May 2005.
