Coventry and Warwickshire
bands have hit the web big time with the launch of a major new CD and
site showcasing local talent.
Twelve bands have each
contributed a track to the disc, which is being given away from
covmusic.com – a new website by CWN.
The CD, which was launched
today, is the first in the area to be tied into the internet. The aim
is to give people a taster of the major groups in the city, and at the
same time try to give the bands a chance to raise their profile.
Diverse in style, the groups
included are: Rochenko, Souler Rhythm, Def Con 3, I’m Spartacus,
Flash Vegas, Java, Stone Foundation, the New Matics, Stain, Sugarfix
and Jesus Deluxe
People who want a copy of the
CD can get one free by visiting the website www.covmusic.com
Some of the bands will be
showcasing their songs in a special gig at the Colosseum on Sunday
Chris Studman, managing
director of CWN, who came up with the idea for covmusic.com, said:
“There has never been such
an ambitious attempt to get so many groups on one CD together.
“With the CD people can
get an instant idea of what the groups sound like. We are planning
to follow this up with another volume in the new year.
“And the website will be
constantly changing to keep everyone in touch with the latest groups
and bands in the area.”
