Friday Fact Sheet: The Scoop

Okay. New feature, and I gotta say…I think this one will go over MUCH more successfully than my previous attempts of “Foto Friday” and “Wordy Wednesday”. (I know, you’re thinking it wouldn’t take much to top those. Hush.)

The longer I’m around on this interwebby thing, the more folks stub their cyber toes here on their way to more interesting sites. Some of these folks (thanks to my very clever use of the word “music” in the title – heh), happen to actually be IN the music business. More and more often I’m being treated to complementary CD downloads for my listening pleasure – which, not gonna lie, ROCKS – and while some of them are right up my alley…others notsomuch.

(What? I’m human – I have my own likes and dislikes! Sheese!)

Now, when it comes to reviews, I have this theory. If I hate it, I’m not going to say anything about it. Forget impartiality – I’d rather employ the manners Mama taught me. It’s tough enough for a band/musician to get ahead in this market without me slamming them just for the sake of being ornery…besides – who the hell am I to be telling anyone what’s good and what’s not?

Remember – the addition of the descriptor “Savvy” to this blog was courtesy of copious amounts of Scotch and snark. I don’t really take myself seriously. Pfffft!

So. I’ve been going along listening to music, and if I love it, I tell you about it…if not, I politely remain mum. There’s also the music that I do like, but for one reason or another – (could be time constraints, could be I’m not in LOVE with it, could be I have a cold) – I just never get around to putting it out here for you before I move on to something else.

Today it dawned on me…I don’t have to write a glowing post to share music with you. Matter of fact, it may be interesting to post some in a completely generic, impartial way and see what you think of it. And so I shall…on Fridays. Bands I stumble on myself, bands I’ve been turned on to by friends or promoters – whatever. I’ll throw some info and a track up here for you to judge for yourself. (And, I’ll eventually put my two cents in the comments, too.)

We shall call it the Friday Fact Sheet…and I’ll try to give you five songs/artists each time, just to keep the “f” alliteration going, because it amuses me. And you’ll be seeing the first one this Friday, so mark your calendars.

    I’m with ya on this. Holler if you need your resident metal head to jump in and have some thoughts of her own.

    (btw, I do the same “if you can’t say anything nice” policy with books.)
